"Like A Rose" as written by Guy Clark, Ashley Monroe and Jon Randall....
I was only thirteen when Daddy died
Mama started drinking, and my brother just quit trying
I'm still bouncing back, Heaven only knows
How I came out like a rose

Ran off with what's his name when I turned eighteen
He got me out of North Dakota, but it did not change a thing
I left it in the yard all covered up with snow
And I came out like a rose

Sitting in this diner with a coffee in my hand
Waiting on a bus to some promised land
I got a one way ticket as far as it goes
And I came out like a rose

So I'm headed south to anywhere that ain't so damn cold
Where I can warm my heart and shake the chill from my bones
It took awhile to get here, it's been a long, hard road
And I came out like a rose

Sitting in this diner with a coffee in my hand
Waiting on a bus to some promised land
I got a one way ticket as far as it goes
And I came out like a rose

It took awhile to get here, it's been a long, hard road
And I came out like a rose
