I Threw Away The Rose

This song is by Conway Twitty and appears on the album Country (1967).

This song is a cover of "I Threw Away the Rose" by Merle Haggard.
Once I lived a life of wine and roses
And I drank a lot back then for one concern
Success for me lay just around the corner
I thought my social friends would help me make the turn.

But now I'm paying for the days of wine and roses
A victim of the drunken life I chose
Now all my social friends look down their noses
'Cause I kept the wine and threw away the rose.

I stood by and watched the bottle take a man of me
The turn I made was not the one I'd planned
And I watched my social friends slip away from me
While I watched the bottle slowly take command.

But now I'm paying for the days of wine and roses
A victim of the drunken life I chose
Now all my social friends look down their noses
'Cause I kept the wine and threw away the rose...
Cause I kept the wine and threw away the rose
