Brass Buttons

Lyrics: Gram Parsons
Music: Gram Parsons

Sung by Brian Lesh with Phil Lesh & Friends.

Brass buttons, green silk, and silver shoes
Warm evenings, pale mornings, bottle blues
And the tiny golden pins that she wore up in her hair
Brass buttons, green silks, and silver shoes

My mind was young untill she grew
My secret thoughts known only by a few
It was a dream much too real
To be leaned against too long
And all the time I think she knew

Her words still dance inside my head
Her comb still lies beside my bed
And the sun comes up without her
It just doesn't know she's gone
Oh but I remember everything she said

Brass buttons, green silk, and silver shoes
Warm evenings, pale mornings, bottle blues
And the tiny golden pins that she wore up in her hair
Brass buttons, green silk, and silver shoes
