The Former Rose Of Dunkeld

The former Rose of Dunkeld she is fading in time
Four decades ago when she was in her prime
With shoulder length hair that was wavy and brown
She was the great beauty of Hamilton Town.

The former Rose of Dunkeld has known a far better day
With chestnut brown hair dye she covers her gray
Now in her mid sixties and in her life's Fall
The clock on her life ticking as it ticks on us all.

As a single grandmother she now lives on her own
And the good and the hard times of life she has known
In her twenty years of marriage she gave birth to a daughter and son
Till her husband he left her for a younger one.

The former Rose of Dunkeld some of her good looks retain
And in fancy she does visit the past again
The Rose of Dunkeld was her claim to renown
When she lived and worked in old Hamilton Town.
