Paper Rosie-crd  Gene Watson

The [C] sun goes down in Calvin [F] county
Neon [G7] lights from an old beer [C] sign
Shown through the window out on the [F] sidewalk
As I walked [G7] in to pass the [C] time;
I looked around, sat down at a [F] table
Ordered beef on [G7] rye and a glass of [C] wine
And through the door came a little old [F] lady
She was [G7] selling paper roses and they only cost a [C] dime.

Paper [G7] Rosie ...Paper [F] Rosie ...
She sold [G7] you Paper Roses; But they only cost a [C] dime.

Silver hair that's lost its' Gold
Trembling hand as she passed the rose
Red Crepe paper, made nature's bouquet
Help a little old lady buy a rose today;
I took the rose from her trembing hand
With eyes of age, she smilled and walked away
Like a breath of spring I could smell the rose
It came alive and I heard her say.

Buy my Roses, pretty roses
They're only made of paper
But they only cost a dime.

I went to look for her outside
A spray of roses lay by her side
The sky lit up and the choir sang
A thousand voices as the church bells rang.

They sang Rosie (Rosie), paper Rosie (Rosie)
She sold you Paper Roses
But they only cost a dime.

Paper Rosie (Rosie), Paper Rosie (Rosie)
She sold you paper roses
But they only cost a dime.
