Wildflower
M. Litton

She cut me deeper than the Colorado River as it rages through the hills
Ain’t nothin’ on this earth cut you deeper than the hurt from a woman will
She cut me deeper than our Savor’s hands
When they nailed him to the cross, when they nailed him to the cross...
The dress she wore hung down so loose from her shoulders
She was a soft-shaded light
But the woman that glowed beneath those clothes cut me deeper than a knife
She was once my wife, the mother of my child
But she was a flower that had grown wild
She was meant to dance and drink the wine
And listen to a guitar wine
She was a wild-flower, she was a wild-flower...

So listen to me now, my son, and remember
Fort there is one thing you must know
Don’t ever play your heart against a card that the devil holds
She’ll cut you deeper than our Savor’s hands
When they nailed him to the cross
One day she’ll go away and take your sunshine
And leave her darkness in your heart and mind
She’ll leave her darkness in your heart and mind

She was once my wife, the mother of my child
She was a flower that had grown wild
She was a wild-flower, she was a wild-flower...
