Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Black Rose  Waylon Jennings

        W[E]ay down in Virg[A]inia
        Am[E]ongst the tall grown sugar ca[B]nes
        Li[E]ved a simple man and a do[A]mineering hen
        And a r[B]ose of a different n[E]ame
Verse 2:
        Th[E]e first time i fell l[A]ightly
        I w[E]as standing in the drizzling ra[B]in
        Wi[E]th a trembling hand and a b[A]ottle of gin
        And a r[B]ose of a different n[E]ame

        Th[E]e devil made me do it the f[A]irst time
        The [E]second time i done it on my o[B]wn
        Lo[E]rd put a handle on a s[A]imple handed man
        And h[B]elp me leave that black rose al[E]one

Verse 3:
        W[E]hen the devil made t[A]hat woman
        L[E]ord she threw the pattern aw[B]ay
        S[E]he was built for speed with the t[A]ools you need
        To m[B]ake a new fool every d[E]ay

Verse 4:
        W[E]ay down deep and[A] dirty
        On t[E]he darker side of sh[B]ame
        I ca[E]ught a cane cuttin' man with [A]a bottle of gin
        Wi[B]th a rose of a different n[E]ame
