Dead Flowers
The Rolling Stones Lyrics


Well when you're sitting there in your silk upholstered chair
Talkin' to some rich folk that you know
Well I hope you won't see me in my ragged company
Well, you know I could never be alone

Take me down little Susie, take me down
I know you think you're the queen of the underground
And you can send me dead flowers every morning
Send me dead flowers by the mail
Send me dead flowers to my wedding
And I won't forget to put roses on your grave

Well when you're sitting back in your rose pink Cadillac
Making bets on Kentucky Derby Day
Ah, I'll be in my basement room with a needle and a spoon
And another girl to take my pain away

Take me down little Susie, take me down
I know you think you're the queen of the underground
And you can send me dead flowers every morning
Send me dead flowers by the mail
Send me dead flowers to my wedding
And I won't forget to put roses on your grave

Take me down little Susie, take me down
I know you think you're the queen of the underground
And you can send me dead flowers every morning
Send me dead flowers by the U.S. Mail
Say it with dead flowers in my wedding
And I won't forget to put roses on your grave
No, I won't forget to put roses on your grave

The expressions on their faces tells it all. They are having such a good time. Love this live version. :-)

Francesco Rampazzo

Their smiles when they sing together are just magic.

Amber Davidson

Could only hope to live so well, and so long

Massimo Bonfiglio

You're so right!

Cyndy Gough

Think it's a little more than magic. They're smiling about the dope they're doing and singing about. Ha. I'd be smiling too!!!

this is the absolute pinnacle of rock n roll right here, soaring to unmatched heights, seeing mick and keith sharing a mic while grinning from ear to ear never fails to make me smile, oh and mick taylor.

@Mark Miwurdz American musicians were stumped by invasion music co-opting Americana. Americans recovered nicely a good example "tell me why" Nora Jones.

@Mark Miwurdz the great Townes Van Zandt covering it says more than anything.

@J McConnell. I have seen Steve Earle cover this song live some years ago here in the U.K. Steve introduced "Dead Flowers" saying something like "And here is a perfectly good British hillbilly song". Kind of says it all really. Stay safe and well.

Best Stone's country music. Maybe anyone.
