Spring & Flowers: Good Year For The Roses



Elvis Costello: Good Year For The Roses

[purchase]

This has to be one of the saddest country songs ever written. The poor guy's life is falling apart around him and things that he used to think were important, like gardening or mowing the lawn, now seem menacingly inconsequential.

You can find the George Jones version here.

Nice one.

I went over to check George Jones version. Thanks for the "Original Almost Blue"! I'm going to compare/ contrast that with Elvis' on my player tomorrow.
