Tender As A Rose by Abbey Lincoln


She was as tender as a rose
She was as soft as snowy down
And from her head down to her toes
She was a dream that hung around
She was as fresh as april
Warm as may
And all the fellas threw their hearts away
But all of her lovin was Joe’s she was as tender as a rose
I guess that Joe was pretty sick
His feelings went from cold to hot
Her love to him was just a kick
His ego needed her a lot
And when he took her away she wore a smile
Fate crossed it's fingers for that lovely child
Cause all of her lovin’ was Joe’s
She was as tender as a rose
She came back walking all alone
She wasn’t gone for very long
She came back with a heart of stone
We knew that everything had gone wrong
And when you ask her why she’s out each night
She’ll say, “Brother, once I tried to be right
Once all of my loving was Joe’s
I was as tender as a rose.”
She was as tender as a rose
