Tom Waits - She Stole The Blush Lyrics

A window left open
and the pillow is soaking wet
who says love, ever comes without tolls
she sends no kindness
no words of regret
when she put the fork in the road
there's a ring with a diamond missing
it was lost in the backseat of a car
there's a dollar on the floor in the kitchen
christmas lights blinking on a long dead
tree in the parlour
cheaters never prosper
cheaters never win
long hair big eyes
and she always needs money
did I find her?
or was she the one who chose?
I wanna drown
like a fly in the honey
and she stole the blush
from the rose
long hair big eyes and she always needs money
did i find her
or was she the one who chose
i wanna drown
like a fly in the honey
because she stole the blush
from the rose

Tom Waits She Stole The Blush Comments
  1. Gary Anderson

    Waits does nothing for me anymore far more entertaining musicians out there in the world today who have for the most part never heard of waits which is cool in many regards. Plus many of the younger musicians are keeping there political parties to themselves. Entertainers so just entertain not preach to us.

  2. тристан робертсон

    deep respect to him!

  3. Дима Дима

    Fantastic. The groove was so deep I for once wasn't wanting a guitar solo because it didn't need one. Not that David Hidalgo wouldn't have come up with something perfect.

  86. Brian Applebee

    Good lord...genius. Dave had Tom on from start...I miss Dave.

  87. rodsreel

    Old school blues keeping on the one chord for more than one phrase - keeps the tension going all the way - doesn't release it at all - great feel for music and drama in a song. Genius.

    Patricio Fernandez

    rodsreel It takes a brilliant musical mind to write a fantastic song like this one using just one chord. Composers will often stray from the main feeling of a song by modulating too much or adding flashy chord changes to disorient the listener, but what they do with 15 chords Tom can achieve with one or two of the most basic ones. This song is a prime example: uncomforting harmony, addictive groove.

    Kurt Stracener

    Yeah man these guys are floating on this groove so good!


    Patricio Fernandez Scelsi did an entire orchestral piece with just one note !

    axel fauves

    That's it Waits is kind of a genius. His always innovative rhythmic section, his rich vocabulary and deep wide range of his lyrics, his unique voice and the way he uses it, wow, Waits goes from jazz into blues and viceversa so nice and easily... Waits cooks and tastes and deliver us his own jewel songs in such a sophisticated style. No one as this fellow. Waits is a world apart. Have past hours and then days, hearing only Tom and not even then willing to quit his universe. And I keep entrying once and again in his universe. Think it is a music to hear alone, very often. So touching he can be. He makes you think and feel, at once, a lot. A great, excellent artist. 🎶💎💜👌

  88. ohanley100

  93. bergerfry

    Chuck Norris went to a Tom Waits concert once, he's still there.

  94. wood jackson

    "maybe things whu'hill be better in Chicago!" wow, that man!

  95. Stuart Livermore

    I wonder where he found a trucker that can play upright bass

    Tomas Gonzales

    this is the funniest comment ive seen on youtube.

    Beaver Lake Motorsports

    can you find a clean cut guy that can do the same?

    irvin davids

    That trucker is the legendary Larry Taylor from canned heat!!

    The Garage Doors

    That’s Larry “The Mole” Taylor. He’s played on a lot of Tom Wait’s records and is best known for being the longtime and founding bassist for Canned Heat.

    E. R. Bowles

    @Tomas Gonzales well it's one of the most clueless. That's Larry Taylor of Canned Heat. He played Monterey Pop, Woodstock.... He was the real bassist for the Monkees.

  96. wood jackson


  97. Andrew watson
