Lyrics of Lynn Miles "Black Flowers"

Black Flowers

I live beside
This dark coal mine
The whistle blows
Everyday on time
When the rain pours down
And the wind blows hard
Black flowers
Grow in my yard

When I lost my man
Down that old coal shaft
I swear I heard
The devil laugh
And the angels left
And they took my heart
Now black flowers
Grow in my yard

And the undertaker
Is a busy man
He's got a clean blue shirt
He's got soft pink hands
Got a paved driveway
And a brand new car
Black flowers
Grow in my yard

When the baby cries
I sing hush little one
But I swear that I'm
Gonna come undone
Cause when the rain
Pours down
And the wind
Blows hard
Black flowers grow in my yard
Black flowers grow in my yard
Black flowers grow in my yard

Lyrics of Skid Row Bonehead

Bonehead Is there a problem? The laugh of the rich man Has got you crying poor Are you as heavy as hell in a handbag Or just a virgin whore?...
