The Sabre And The Rose

Feet hit the ground; feet leaving town

Quicker than a bullet or a knife

Falling ain't no fun when you're on the run

Honey we was runnin' for our life



When Stagger Lee had drunk his fill of moonlight

He turned his burnin' eyes upon my soul

"It's time, by God, to spend this night with someone else", he said.

"Squeeze a little pleasure from the gold" (love & glory, children)

We can take it easy when we're old.



He said, "We'll take us into town, lay our money down

I'll bring you to the sweetest thing that grows

Because the fairest ones in sight are bloomin' every night at a tavern

Called the Sabre and the Rose."



We swang into the saddle slick as breathing

And slapped 'em once for pleasure with the reins

The horses snorted frosty in the moonlight

Somethin' dark was singing in my veins

Older than the voices in my brain.



He said, "This place you're gonna see is where they live and breathe

And sink down a little bit deeper every day

And sometimes at night, when the wind is runnin' right,

You can hear it suckin' thirty miles away"



Then the light was crimson and I found her,

All naked and eternal and insane

Sacred as the mysteries around her like a veil

Nothin' but her prison was profane

All we had in common was our chains.



Ah-burn it down boys

Burn it to the ground, boys

Burn it on down



Feet hit the ground; feet leaving town

Quicker than a bullet or a knife



All the way she ran holdin' to my hand

Runnin' for the river and our life

Slidin' from the moonlight into shadows

Silent as the river as it flows

Swimmin' to the place they'll never find us

All we left behind us was our clothes

And the stories, children.
