Suzanne And The Jewels Lyrics

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

 

 

 

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 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

Just goes to show sometimes you win

No matter how crazy you are

But a thief can come knocking

Even with blood on the door

 

And drink up your fountain of youth

And throw your jewels and your crown on the floor

 

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 and her jewels

 

Livin' on the edge of a friend

 

Suzanne how will you sleep at night

When they take that crown off your head
