A Good Year For The Roses

Counting Crows

 C
 I can hardly stand the sight of lipstick
 FC
on the cigarettes there in the ashtray.
Lying cold the way you left them,
 F
but at least your lips caressed them
 CC7
while you packed.   
 F
Or the lip print on a half-filled cup
of coffee that you poured
 C
and didn't drink.
 G
But at least you thought you wanted it
 C
which is so much more than I can say for me.

CHORUS:
 FG
It's been a good year for the roses      
 C
Many blooms still linger there.
 DmG
The lawn could stand another mowing     
 C
it's funny, I don't even care
 FG
But as you turned and walked away  
 FC
As the door behind you closes
 DmG
The only thing I thought to say        
 FC
is what a good year for the roses

VERSE:
After three, four years of marriage
it's the first time that you haven't made the bed
I guess the reason we're not talking,
is there's so little left to say that we haven't said
While a million thoughts go racing through my mind
I guess I haven't said a word
From the bedroom, the familiar sound
of our one baby's crying goes unheard

CHORUS:
 FG
It's been a good year for the roses      
 C
Many blooms still linger there.
 DmG
The lawn could stand another mowing     
 C
it's funny, I don't even care
 FG
But as you turned and walked away     
 FC
As the door behind you closes
 DmG
The only thing I thought to say        
 FC
is what a good year for the roses
