Cactus And A Rose (Stewart Gary)

Sitting up here in this New York townhouse Decorated in grays and blues and everybody knows Love won't grow for a cactus and a rose When that old wild streak beneath my skin Sets my crazy spree again They'll all say I told you so Love won't grow for a cactus and a rose 'Cause I still like to drink my beer And I still love a honky tonk Where the good ole girls will always dance with you When the high falootin' women won't And I'm locked into a way of life I can't give it up, I know it makes me sad Love can't be had for a cactus and a rose It makes me sad Love can't be had for a cactus and a rose Sometimes falling makes more sense Than sitting in the middle of the same old fence You're gonna loose either way you go And love won't grow for a cactus and a rose So I'm sitting up here in this New York townhouse Decorated in grays and blues and everybody knows Love won't grow for a cactus and a rose 'Cause I still like to drink my beer And I still love a honky tonk Where the good ole girls will always dance with you When the high falootin' women won't And I'm locked into a way of life I can't give it up, I know it makes me sad Love can't be had for a cactus and a rose It makes me sad Love can't be had for a cactus and a rose
