Another Man's Vine (Waits Tom)

Bougainvillea's bloom and wind Be careful mind the strangle vines The rose is a climbing over blind 'Cause the sun is on the other side The bees will find their honey The sweetest every time Around a Red Rose I see a red rose, a red rose Blooming on another man's vine Golden Willie's gone to war He left his young wife on the shore Will she be steadfast everyday? While Golden Willie is far away Along the way her letters end She never reads what Willie sends Now I see a red rose I smell a red rose A red rose Blooming on another man's vine
