Snider

Yellow Rose, Waco Moon
Quit too late, you're gonna die too soon
Woman with a needle and a silver spoon
Holed up singin' the devil's tune.

Playin' the blues, payin' your dues
Speedin' your young life away
I never will get over what I heard about you
The first thing New Year's Day.

I can't say I felt so sad
The truth is I think I'm mad
At the selfish way you left your dad
When you know what a hard luck time he's had.

Sleepin' through a dream come true
You just threw all that talent away
I never will get over what I heard about you
The first thing New Year's Day.

Ooh, slippin' away
Ooh, New Year's Day.

I threw the phone against the wall
Falling apart when I got the call
I went out walkin' with the weight of it all
That's when it hit me like a waterfall.

I'm playin' the blues, payin' my dues
Speedin' my young life away
I never will get over what I heard about you
The first thing New Year's Day.

Ooh, slippin' away
Ooh, New Year's Day.

Yellow Rose, Waco Moon
Quit too late, you died too soon
To the bitter end tried and true
Goodbye old friend, we'll be missing you.
