Lyrics

A Rose for Emily by Jeff Holmes

Air all the rooms open the blinds
Dust off the death scatter the time
He loves to sleep on the porch
till the rain blows on him

Change all the sheets make all the beds
Wake up the bride wake up the dead
She loves to sleep in his arms
Till the dew falls on her

Somebody call the preacher
Somebody call the justice
Somebody call somebody
Tell 'em the truth

Old wool fades old windows run
Old wood dries smells like a church
Old frames lie on the desk
Till the faces yellow

Somebody call the preacher
Somebody call the justice
Somebody call somebody
Tell 'em the truth
