Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Spanish Harlem  Ben E. King

1.[E]There is a rose in Spanish Harlem,

A red rose up in Spanish Harlem.

[A]It is a special one, it's never seen the sun,

It only comes out when the moon is on the run,

And all the stars are [E]gleaming.

[B]It's growing in the street,
Right up through the concrete...

But soft and [E]dreaming.

2.[E]There is a rose in Spanish Harlem,
A red rose up in Spanish Harlem,

[A]With eyes as black as coal,

That look down in my soul,

And start a fire, and then I lose control,

I have to beg your [E]pardon.

[B]I'm gonna pick that rose and watch her as she grows...
In my [E]garden.

OUTRO ADD: [B]I'm gonna pick that rose,

And watch her as she grows, in my [E]garden.
[E]There is a rose in Spanish Harlem.........
A sixties smash from Kraziekhat!
