Uncle Spider & The Electric Dirt Clods
The House By The Rose m / Country
Lyrics
In a faraway town
For a rodeo crown
He leaves her lonely to follow his dream
To ride as the rodeo king

In the house by the rose
As the shades are pulled closed
She calls "hey, Jimmy"
But there's no one to hear
So she goes to bed, wiping a tear

Jimmy come back to the house by the rose
The one that we planted on the night you proposed
But glimpses of spotlight that shine through the dust
Jimmy, these are the prize of your lust

With a rose on his shirt
Jimmy fell to the dirt
Last thing he saw as he fell to the ground
Was the spotlight that shined on his crown

He was thrown from his throne
With a fancy shirt on
Doctor declares with a 1AM call
"..guess every king has to fall"

Alone she screams
Jimmy come back to the house by the rose
The one that we planted on the night you proposed
But glimpses of spotlight that shine through the dust
Jimmy, these are the prize of your lust

In the morning she stared out the window
Because the rose had been stolen away
She ran to call but the phone rang instead
To say the rodeo champion was dead

Her heart cry's out
Jimmy come back to the house by the rose
The one that we planted on the night you proposed
But glimpses of spotlight that shine through the dust
Jimmy, those were the prize of your lust
