"For Suzanne" as written by and Darrell Scott....
She's been written in song by the greatest of names
Stephen Foster, Leonard Cohen, and Sweet Baby James
But I got this feeling that this won't be the same
My love song for Suzanne

There's ghosts in the rear that showcase a dream
A vortex of hope by the cigarette machine
You can pay for the whiskey, but she'll never come clean
You're just holding a loaded hand

But the old school passion is not to be missed
The entrance exam is a soul-to-soul kiss
The final is tears, clenched teeth, and raised fists
And a love song for Suzanne

Give her the grace to face herself
Too long she has languished upon the top shelf
The bearskin, the mattress, the judgmental health
The prize of another man

Give her some wisdom for all she's been through
Her dance with the spirits, a lover or two
She's been sleeping it off, but someday she'll come to
This love song for Suzanne

And if you get the nod on some cold aimless night
From a death-do-us partner preparing for flight
You can ride on that carpet, but you best keep your sight
On the tender who takes your hand
I love her, I love her, I've cried to the moon
My orphan in rags said, “You gave up to soon.”
I've got twelve years of crazy and this overused tune
As a love song for Suzanne

God give her the grace to face herself
Too long she has languished upon the top shelf
The bearskin, the mattress, the judgmental health
The prize of another man

And give me some wisdom for all that I do
My dance with misfortune, a time or two
I've been under the weather but the sun's shining through
I've been under the weather but the sun's shining through
This love song for Suzanne
