Prohibition Rose - Parker McCollum

Prohibition Rose set on the counter
With a long day and the downer
Where's the money go this time of year
Been a long day down the ladder
The way it's sung sure woulda' mattered
You can see the pain and tear in her eyes

She said I've paid the sheriff, paid the begger
The lights and the street and the old bootlegger
Feeling peoples wild and sinful dreams
Yeah but where is the satisfaction for a girl like me

Running with the light of day
Sleight of hand played out to pay
A look and a wink left all her boys in the dark
What a man would do to have her
What the man would do to catch her
Oh a cold life all this could be
Oh Rose, won't you keep 'em coming to me

She said I've paid the sheriff, paid the begger
The lights and the street and the old bootlegger
Feeling peoples wild and sinful dreams
Yeah but where is the satisfaction for a girl like me

Nobody knows
Just what became of old miss Rose
Oh Rose, won't you keep 'em coming to me

She said I've paid the sheriff, paid the begger
The lights and the street and the old bootlegger
Feeling peoples wild and sinful dreams
Oh.. but where is the satisfaction
Tell me where's that satisfaction
Oh.. where is that satisfaction for a girl like me
