The Blasters

The Blasters are a rock and roll band formed in 1979 in Downey, California, by brothers Phil Alvin (vocals and guitar) and Dave Alvin (guitar), with bass guitarist John Bazz and drummer Bill Bateman. Phil Alvin explained the origin of the band's name: "I thought Joe Turner’s backup band on Atlantic records – I had these 78s – I thought they were the Blues Blasters. That ends up it was Jimmy McCracklin. I just took the 'Blues' off and Joe finally told me, that’s Jimmy McCracklin’s name, but you tell ‘im I gave you permission to steal it." more »

 Struggling with Red Rose? Become a better singer in 30 days with these videos!

Your father sat with the night's first drink
Your mother washed the dishes in the sink
You stood on the steps, wearing your best
One red rose on a new black dress

When we walked under the powerlines
I dreamed about it a thousand times
You weren't like the rest
One red rose on a new black dress

[Chorus]
One red rose on a new black dress
Crushing it between our chests
Tonight I'll wonder where you'll be
One dead rose is all I see

We hid in the weeds and we hid in the grass
Listening to the cars on the highway pass
Then you put me to the test
One red rose on a new black dress

[Chorus]

Then you said we could never come back
And walked awax through the housing tract
Leaving me with what's left
One red rose from a new black dress

[Chorus]
