Red is a color of memory
Blue was a way to green
And, darling, you did gamble
'Cause you were a dying breed
Yes, you were dying breed

Yellow -- the color of your skin
Black was the color of your hair
Your earthly days have passed you by
Where, oh where, oh where did you go
When they took your bones, now?

Red is a color of memory
Blue was a way to green
And, darling, you did gamble
