Weeds Outlived The Roses  
Recorded by Darrell McCall
Written by Earl Thomas Conley

We moved on the second floor of a grocery store garage
G7 C
Room and board and gasoline livin’ on the job
Our backyard is asphalt with parking meter trees
G7 C
And there ain’t no peace and quiet there ‘til all the people leave
But she got tired of working hard and running low on luck
G7 C
She loaded up her dreams and left in my ol’ pick-up truck

Oh the weeds outlived the roses in her ol’ flower pot
G7 C
And all I’ve got is a greasy spot in an empty parking lot
We spent a lot of time out there when the day would end
G7 C
And Lord I’d love to see her now and my ol’ truck pull in

Well I’d like to have the gasoline I’ve run out on the ground
G7 C
Too busy missing both of them to cut the nozzle down
Everywhere from anywhere in a fifty dollar truck
G7 C
I hope that them ol’ booty tires and taped-up wires hold up

Repeat #2
