Old silver died last Saturday evenin'
Or was it more like ten years ago
She nailed two dozen roses to the top of his coffin
And buried'em deep where they never would grow
Lord she buried'em deep where they never would grow

Now the Irish are funny, they'll cry when they have to
And the lady she moaned such a mournful sound
Me and the Mexican just finished the bottle
And remembered the days when Old Silver was around
Yeah remembered the days when Old Silver was around

'Cause Old Silver took the best of it with him
The lovers and the dealers and the dreamers of dreams
And Old Silver took the love of a lady
