George Jones Open Pit Mine
From Morenci, Arizona where the copper mines glow i could see Clifton in the canyons below. In clifton lived Rosie we danced and we dined with the money i made in the open pit mine.
I loved my sweet Rosie and she loved me too, there was nothing for rosie that i would not do. Her hugs and her kisses they were something devine gave me reason for working the open pit mine.
While I was out walking with my Rosie one day we passed a store window wtih rings on display i bought those she wanted how they really did shine spent the money i saved in that open pit mine.
Her love would bring heart ache that i would soon learn cause she would two time me when my back was turned. Rosie would go dancing and drink the red wine while i worked like a slave in that open pit mine.
One night i caught Rosie on her rondevou she was hugging and kissing with somebody new it was there that i shot her while there arms were intwined. Then i buried her deep in that open pit mine.
I took alook at my future and what did i see there was nothing but trouble awaiting for me, but on the suns of next horizon I'll be satisfied cause they'll find me there sleeping at sweet Roses side.
