Flogging Molly - Death Valley Queen lyrics

Death Valley queen, where have you been?
Since they crowned you in glory, filled your head with dreams
But it still goes to show in every desert, there's a rose
That's blooming for all to be seen

I remember you well from that town you did dwell
With the face of an angel in a dump, hot as hell
When I asked for a kiss you cleanly dismissed
So I led my poor heart to the slaughter

Tell me, dear, what did you fear?
I'd do you no wrong, though no stranger to sin
So Death Valley queen, go marry your king
Or an old maid you'll end up for certain

Off I did set on my trail of regret
Where I thought of you now in your castle and crown
So I found me a whore with a face just like yours
After several gallons of porter

When I awake, she had scarpered, I was broke
Laying cold in the bed with a whale for a head
So Death Valley queen, go marry your king
Or an old maid you'll end up for certain

Then the ball dropped
Why everything fell by the way
As your teardrops
Were falling I forgot to say

That I have always loved you
Yeah, I have always loved you
Yeah, I, yeah I...
I have always loved you

When I returned, downtrodden and burned
There were billy goats grazing where once you'd be found
So I hung out to dry on this limb for a lie
Take me back for I'm cursed on the mainland

Tell me, dear, what did you fear?
I'd do you no wrong, though no stranger to sin
So Death Valley queen, go marry your king
Or an old maid you'll end up for certain

I said Death Valley queen, go marry your king
And a-roving I'll end up for certain
