      About "The Sabre And The Rose"

      Lyrics for Kris Kristofferson - "The Sabre And The Rose"

      Feet hit the ground feet leavin' town quicker than a bullet or a knife
      Fallin' ain't no fun when you're on the run honey we was running for our life
      When Stagger Lee had drunk his fill of moonlight
      He turned his burning eyes upon my soul
      It's time my God to spend this night with someone else he said
      Squeeze a little pleasure from the gold love and glory
      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 sick 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 why they live and breathe
      And sink down a little bit deeper everyday
      And sometimes at night when the wind is running right
      You can hear it suckin' thirty miles away
      Then the light was crimson and I found her all naked and eternal and insane
      Secred as the mysteries around her like a veil nothin' but her prison was profane
      All we had in common was our chains
      Oh burn it down boys burn it to the ground boys burn it on down
      Feet hit the ground feet leavin' town quicker than a bullet or a knife
      All there was 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 sing about the Sabre and the Rose
