unknown - Wild Irish Rose lyrics

In a field by a river
My love and i did lie
And on my naked shoulder
She too proud to cry
She said that i must leave her
An icy tear she froze
How could i melt the heart
Of a wild irish rose

Well a gypsy she has made of me
A servent of the street
And back to bed i've travelled
To taste a love as sweet
Well the heart it knows no reasons
And reason never knows
As i lie with them i'm thinking
Of a wild irish rose

Well i saw the city of angels
It brought a devil out in me
And hell's hotel on sunset
Showed a whore no mercy
As the orange sky was screaming
From the roof i let her go
These are the dizzying heights that brought me
My wild irish rose

Now red is the rose
That she layed on my grave
A life is what she wanted
And a life i surely gave
Like a hundred men before me
They lay lying here in rows
Young men, bloody
As a wild irish rose
