    I admit I am troubled by the lyrics. I am a Christian and don't apologize for that.

    The other anonymous guy that commented about whores n shit's comment was funnier. So, fuck you, guy with the big ass explanation. This isn't Harvard, it's a lyrics website. Get your head out of your ass, faggot.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    A young orphaned man in a small town (possibly modeled after the Statlers' hometown of Staunton, Virginia) has for some reason become shunned by the "polite" members of society, and is forced to beg in the streets. His life improves when a streetwalker named Rose, nearly twice his age, takes him in; he becomes her lover. The song juxtaposes the hypocrisy of the nominally Christian townspeople who would "go to church and leave me in the street" and their envy of Rose who "managed a late evening business/like most of the town wished they could do", with the care and tender love that evolves between the two outcasts. The song is both a challenge of narrow minded religion and moral-ism, and a gentle celebration of love, in some ways not unlike the theme of Luke 7:36-50.[2] The title of "Bed of Rose's" is, like some of the other Statler Brothers' works, a play on words - in this case on the common English idiom "bed of roses", which means an easy and pleasant life.

    Taken from the wikipedia.
    Don't read the half-assed reply of the other anon.
