"White Rose"

[Verse 1]
Yea, the whole town came out to watch
The day the paved the parking lot
Somebody hung a ribbon up
And then they cut it down

[Verse 2]
And that big white rose upon that sign
Put innocence in all our lives
We could see its neon light
From half a mile out

[Verse 3]
Gas was .50 cents a gallon
They'd put it in for you
They'd bump your tires and check your oil
And wash your windows too

[Verse 4]
And We'd shine those cars bright as bright
We'd go park underneath that light
Stare out at the prairie sky
There was nothing else to do


[Pre-Chorus]
And now there's plywood for glass
Where the windows all got smashed
And there's just a chunk a'concrete
Where those old pumps used to stand

[Chorus]
There's a couple a'cars half outta the ground
And that old sign still spins 'round 'n 'round
I guess the White Rose filling station's just a memory now

[Verse 5]
And the girls would spend a couple of bucks
Just to meet the boys workin' at the pumps
And we'd pull up and fall in love
And they've all moved away

[Verse 6]
Strangers used to stop and ask
How far they've driven off the map
And then they built that overpass
And now they stay out on the highway

[Verse 7]
'Cause there's plywood for glass
Where the windows all got smashed
And there's just a chunk a'concrete
Where those old pumps used to stand


[Chorus]

[Verse 8]
And that neon sign was the heart and soul
Of this ol' one horse town
And it's like it lost its will to live
The day they shut it down


[Pre-Chorus]


[Chorus]

[Outro]
Yea that ol' White Rose fillin' station's just a memory now
