​Brass Buttons

This song is by Denison Witmer and appears on the album Recovered (2003).

(Gram Parsons)

Brass buttons, green silks and silver shoes
Warm evenings, pale mornings, bottle of blues
And the tiny golden pins that she wore up in her hair
Brass buttons, green silks and silver shoes

My mind was young until she grew
My secret thoughts known only by the few
It was a dream much to real to be leaned against too long
All the time I think she knew

Her words still dance inside my head
Her comb still lies beside my bed
And the sun comes up without her
It just doesn't know she's gone
But I remember everything she said

I remember every word she said
All the time I think she knew
Brass buttons, green silks and silver shoes
