"A Rose For Emily"
(Rod Argent)
Verse 1:
[G]Though summer is [D]here at last
[Fdim]The sky is [A/E]overcast
And[Ddim] no one brings a [A/C#]rose for Emi[Bm7]ly[Bm7/E] [E7]
[G]She watches her f[D]lowers grow
[Fdim]While lovers [A/E]come and go
To [Ddim]give each other [A/C#]roses from her [Bm7]tree
But [E7]not a rose for E[A]mily
[Bb]Emily, c[F]an't you see there's[C#dim] nothing you can [D]do
(Emily... see... how the sun is...)
[Gdim] There's loving [D/F#]everywhere but [A7]none for y[D]ou[D/C]
(...shining in the garden)
Verse 2:
Her roses are faded now
She keeps her pride somehow
That's all she has protecting her from pain
And as the years go by
She will grow old and die
The roses in her garden fade away
Not [A/C#]one left for her [Bm7]grave
[E7]Not a rose for [A]Emily
(repeat chorus)
(repeat verse 2)
[A] [A7] [D/A] [Ddim] [Asus4] [A]
