Seven Black Roses

Seven roses appear in my sight,
Shining like black stars in the night.
And around them, drops of diamond water float
While between them, on his horse,
My friend the devil rode.


Contains the guitar solo that was more or less a standard in the early performances. Compare with the bootleg Sweet Certain Surprise, #4: 'Spiders On The Strings'.
