Scarlet Begonias


As I was walkin' down rubadub square

not a chill to the wind but a nip to the air

from another direction she was caught in my eye

It could be an illusion but I might as well try

might as well try

she had rings on her fingers and bells on her shoes

and I knew without asking- she was into the blues

she wore scarlet begonias tucked into her curls

I knew right away she was not like other girls

like other girls


Well I ain't never been right as I ain't never been wrong

as heaven works out the way it does in this song (hey)

'cuz once in awhile you get shown in the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right


It was the summer of love and I thank the stars above

because the woman took a lovin' over me

and just to gain her trust I bought a microbus

because I sold off all my personal property


A tight tye-dye dress she was a psychadelic mess

we toured to the north, south, east, and west

we sold some mushroom tea we sold some extacy we sold nitrous, opium, acid, heroin, and pcp


and now I hear the police comin' after me

yes now I hear the police comin' after me

the one scarlet with the flowers in her hair she's got the police comin' after me


but there ain't nothin' wrong with the way she moves

all scarlet begonias and a touch of the blues

and there ain't nothin' wrong with the love that's in her eye

I had to learn the hard way just to let her pass by

let it pass by

oh just let her pass by
