Tom Waits - Another Man's Vine Lyrics




Bougainvillea's bloom and wind
Be careful mind the strangle vines
The rose is climbing over blind
'Cause the sun is on the other side
The bees will find their honey
The sweetest every time

Around a Red Rose
I see a red rose, a red rose
Blooming on another man's vine

Golden Willie's gone to war
He left his young wife on the shore
Will she be steadfast everyday?
While Golden Willie is far away
Along the way her letters end
She never reads what Willie sends

Now I see a red rose
I smell a red rose
A red rose
Blooming on another man's vine

    "Another Man's Vine"

    Bougainvillea's bloom and wind
    Be careful mind the strangle vines
    The rose is a climbing over blind
    'Cause the sun is on the other side
    The bees will find their honey
    The sweetest every time
    Around a Red Rose
    I see a red rose, a red rose
    Blooming on another man's vine
    Golden Willie's gone to war
    He left his young wife on the shore
    Will she be steadfast everyday?
    While Golden Willie is far away
    Along the way her letters end
    She never reads what Willie sends

    Now I see a red rose
    I smell a red rose A red rose

    I love how I always get ads for alcohol on Tom Waits videos. How quaint.

    This song is perfect. I love the imagery he creates in that opening verse.

    Try Lucid Rivers, very different to this but like this it's a bit different from the norm.

  4. Christophe Carpentier

    Hmmm. The very first note of this one reminds me of another song from Tom Waits, Same note, same instruments. But I absolutely can't remember which one. Ideas anyone?

    LindirTheGreen

    Are you thinking of Dirt in the Ground, perhaps?

    Christophe Carpentier

    @LindirTheGreen Yes that's it. Thank you!

  9. Ellen Williams

    I'm only 15 years old, and I can't stand the music kids my age listen to. If only my generation knew about people like Tom Waits.

  10. Ellen Williams

    I agree Bob Dylan is the best, but Tom Waits is AMAZING!!!

  11. Jimalax11

    it's hilarious when I hear twenty year old men call this music gay and then they cry for starships by niki minaj.

  12. asifitsasif

  13. Monster Murphy

  16. Mellonbread

    I'm always impressed with the way he builds such vivid characters and stories using just a few lines.

  17. shelnora

    Goosebumps.

  18. THESQUATINATOR

    This song scares the shit out of me. The voice is one thing but when he sings about bees and honey I'm like o.0... Allright.. *backs out of room*

    Don't give up saving the youth from girl-music!
