JERRY LEE LEWISWhen You Wore A Tulip (and I Wore A Big Red Rose) Lyrics
WHEN YOU WORE A TULIP (AND I WORE A BIG RED ROSE)
WRITER JACK MAHONEY
Well I met you in a garden, in an old Kentucky town.
That sun was shining down.
Honey you wore, a gingham gown.
I caressed you as I placed a yellow tulip in your hair,
And upon my coat you pinned, a rose so rare....
When you wore a tulip, A sweet yellow tulip,
( From: http://www.elyrics.net )
And I wore a big red rose,
When you caressed me, 'twas then Lord He blessed me,
What a feeling, no one knows.
You made life cheery, When you called me dearie,
It was down where the blue grass grows,
Your lips were sweeter than juleps, When you wore a tulip,
And I wore a big red rose.
