Written by: John Mellencamp

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
Livin' on the edge of a friend.
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 she'd put on her crown
And she'd sing them a song
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?
