Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers — The Golden Rose lyrics

Well, The Golden Rose sailed with a broken man
Going south
Got on board with a woman to lead him around
By the mouth

Chorus:
And it's goodbye, Golden Rose
Yeah, it's goodbye, Golden Rose

Well, the captain who swears if he speaks at all
Wears a gun
Got a first maid who's never quite on the ball
For his son

Chorus:
And it's goodbye, Golden Rose
Yeah, it's goodbye, Golden Rose

Wish I was back in her arms again
Wish I was holding her tight
Wish I was back in her arms again
Safe from the night

She stood on the shore and she waved to me:
"Come back home"
Many a-night I would think of her
All alone

Chorus:
And it's goodbye, Golden Rose
