John Mellencamp - Suzanne And The Jewels

John Mellencamp
Suzanne was the jewel keeper.
In a word she stole all the jewels
And she took them to a foreign land
Which was strictly against all the rules,
And she wore them all proudly
Like a tiara crown on her head.
She slept with them at night.
Suzanne and the jewels in a bed.

Suzanne and her jewels
Livin' on the edge of a friend.
Suzanne, how will you sleep at night
When they take that crown from your head?

Suzanne lived down by the river,The fountain of youth did flow
And she played on a steel guitar
And the drifters did come and they'd go.
And she'd put on her crown
And she'd sing them a song
And some drifters would stay here the night
But they never did stay long.

Suzanne and her jewels
Livin' on the edge of a friend.
Suzanne, how will you sleep at night
When they take that crown from your head?

This girl flew on the wind,
She wrote her own name in the stars.
