Love Is A Rose Lyrics

by Neil Young

Love is a rose but you better not pick it
It only grows when it's on the vine
A handful of thorns and you'll know you've missed it
You lose your love when you say the word mine

I wanna see what's never been seen
I wanna live that age old dream
Come on, lads, we can go together
Let's take the best right now
Take the best right now

I wanna go to an old hoe-down
Long ago in a western town
Pick me up 'cause my feet are draggin'
Give me a lift and I'll hay your wagon

Love is a rose but you better not pick it
It only grows when it's on the vine
A handful of thorns and you'll know you've missed it
You lose your love when you say the word mine
Mine, mine

Love is a rose, love is a rose
Love is a rose, love is a rose
