Deep Purple - Rosa's Cantina Lyrics




Going to Rosa's Cantina
Going to Rosa's Cantina
Hoping that she's still there
Going to Rosa's Cantina

Might have been
the dust in my eyes
the dust in my eyes

Could have been the neon cactus
Lighting up the desert sky
Must have been
the dust in my eyes

Some would call it suicide
Some would call it suicide
I would call it paradise
Some would call it suicide

Dancing on the table
Dancing on the table
Dancing on the table
when she's
drunker than she's able
Dancing on the table

Some would call it suicide
I would call it paradise
Some would call it suicide
Hell on earth

Is she right is she wrong
Will she sing another song
Wicked as it seems
right now

Rosa wants her baby back
Rosa wants her baby back
Since he's gone she's losing track
Rosa wants her baby back
Careful with that cadillac
Careful with that cadillac
Careful with that cadillac

    Going to Rosa's Cantina
    Going to Rosa's Cantina
    Hoping that she's still there
    Going to Rosa's Cantina

    the dust in my eyes

    Could have been the neon cactus
    Lighting up the desert sky
    Must have been

    Some would call it suicide
    Some would call it suicide
    I would call it paradise
    Some would call it suicide

    Dancing on the table

    Dancing on the table
    when she's

    Groovy, funky, dirty grimy bluesy, FFS... so damn good

  4. MO Hachemy

    OMG the bass

  5. zaza merabishvili

    Sounds more like jazz, then DP.

  6. 2003Cpayne

    Ian Paice really drives that groove home...!

  7. Jon Blackers

    DP should have played this song to death instead of HUSH.

  8. nobodyaskedbut

    The best non Mark2 album. They were 80% Mark2.

  9. HGR83

    DEEP PURPLE
    hoy dia tengo 4 décadas y media y estos tipos me dieron las ganas de vivir e ir al frente, para adelante en tiempos miserables. Fueron los angeles de la guardia de mis 3 primeras décadas de vida. El día que tengo la primera oportunidad de verlos en vivo lloré tanto que sus caras no las recuerdo como lo soñaba y de hecho los ame más, los oídos no lloran. Únicos en su especie, DEEP PURPLE ES UN SENTIMIENTO QUE NO PUEDO PARAR OLE OLE OLA!!! QUE CADA DIA TE QUIERO MAS....

    Jon Blackers

    Its 2019, and you still cant handle English?

  10. Otto Greenleaf

    At 3:09 the rocking chair catches the cat's tail. Happy Birthday today(August 19) to Ian Gillan.  Cheers!

  11. SamDaWarriorsFan

    Roger Glover. Amazing.

  12. Luke Partridge

    The versatility of DP never ceases to amaze, greatest rock band ever and Purpendicular has to be right up there with In Rock, Fireball, Machine Head & Now What as a top 5 Purple album.

    John St.Pierre

    Fireball is my favourite.

    themillarman

    total agreement

  13. MIGUEL VARGAS

    one of their best albums !!!

  14. Roberto Lepoev

    nice groove

  15. Karol Ka

    This song is really extraordinary but I sooo love it <3

  16. enrique murillo

    Es genial como Deep Purple mezcla los sonidos de cada instrumento de modo que se aprecian al máximo. Super placentero! Y la voz de Ian es otro de ellos.
    Genius how Purple's sounds mix altogether so you get to appreciate them at their best! Super glad to your ears! And Ian's voice is another one of them.

  17. B Mann

    love all of this but a little too much dixie dregs influence and not enough deep purple. Big fan of both though

    Fred Prunella

    actually the drum part (blending James Brown funk with big band swing) was the foundation for this song as per Ian Paice

  18. nobodyaskedbut

    Maybe the best song of the best non Mark 2 DP album.

  19. nick matsaberidze

    lets all appreciate all the young generation listeni g to this and not shit like drake or eminem

  20. lovehunter

    When I first saw the title of this song I was half expect to hear a cover of the old Marty Robbins song El Paso lol :)

  21. Adream withinadream

    Deep Purple with Steve Morse is tradically overlooked and therfor underrated. "Purpendicular" and "Now What!?" especially!

    lovehunter

    People are blinkered and only think Ritchie Blackmore which is a shame. Steve and Ritchie are both great guitarists just different which is great for creativity I think.

    Jeff Hancock

    Yes. Agreed. Two of Purple's best albums but unfortunately, they can't escape the great Blackmore legacy. Great song writing in both.

    Otto Greenleaf

    Maligned not underrated. Not when you sound this good.

  22. real american

    Fun Fact ; Hells Angels fought the Mongols motorcycle gang inside Harrahs Casino in Lawton Arizona.
    Two angels killed , one Mongols , 21 injured .
    Name of the bar in the Casino was Rosas Cantina

    Otto Greenleaf

    You are correct sir.

    nallly

    Very interesting. I remember that. They were lucky the Son's of Anarchy weren't there or more would be dead. Ya know what I mean?!

  23. john asson

    ian is fucking brilliant!

  24. Mara Plachý

    I am 14 years old, but i love this music :3

    Ira Johnson

    YOUR FOLKS RAISED YOU RIGHT YOUNG ROCKER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Kevin Melhart

    Music doesn’t have an age limit, mang. Unless it’s some kidz bop shit.

    Pedro 2577

    i am 1 :v?

    Nikola Kolarovski

    You are 14 years old, but you are retarded.
    Ok, technically you're probably 16 now, but the latter statement remains unaltered.

    John St.Pierre

    I'm 63 and have been listenning to Deep Purple for 50 years.

  25. Rich Vee

    another kick ass song from this one.

  26. Barry Murphy

    Very smooth!
