Cherryholmes - Red Satin Dress Lyrics

Five lonely days when I rode into town
Down from the mines to lay some money down
Stopped at a tavern they called ďThe Sweet PrincessĒ
There I met the girl in the red satin dress

Her gown shimmered scarlet as she walked across the room
I could see her soft skin and smell her sweet perfume
Her eyes flashed with lightning, she beckoned with a glance
My life might be in danger, I thought Iíd take a chance

Hair black as a raven and eyes full of fire
Voice soft as a whisper filled me with desire
Captured by her charm, like a man possessed
I fell for the girl in the red satin dress

I crept to a room at the top of the stairs
I could smell her perfume, I knew she was there
But when I stepped inside I faced another man
She came from behind, my knife was in her hand

I donít know what happened, my head was spinniní íround
I heard a soft voice whisper and stumbled to the ground
I saw a man lyiní , my knife deep in his chest
And gone was the girl in the red satin dress

Standiní in the courtroom, stariní at each face
Lookiní there for mercy, but canít find a trace
They donít believe my story, timeís run out I guess
No oneís seen a girl in a red satin dress

Itís a long, long walk to the top of the stairs
At the top Iíll stretch a rope and nobody cares
Thereís no one here to mourn when they lay me down to rest
All for the girl in the red satin dress

Donít fall for the girl in the red satin dress
