Stoplight Roses  Nick Lowe


Stoplight Roses ? Nick Lowe

Tabbed by: pongr130
Beautiful song. Couldn't find it, so here it is.
[E]You've practiced and rehearsed it
E+ F#m [cb]F#m/F[/cb] [cb]F#m/E[/cb]
But in your heart you know It's too late.
Ex[B]perience should [B/F#]tell you
[B] Never [B/F#]get your story [A]too s[E]traight.
You'd [A]better steel yourself
And pre[Am]pare for
Some [E]blues to [F#]descend
'Cause you've [F#m]broken something this time [B]
Stoplight roses can't [E]mend. [F#m] [B]
You've [E]dusted off your shame face
E+ F#m [cb]F#m/F[/cb] [cb]F#m/E[/cb]
In the mirror behind the bathroom door.
That [B]little-boy-[B/F#]lost look
That [B]used to work so [B/F#]well Doesn't [A]any[E]more.
If [A]you believe your same-old [Am]used-to-be
Will [E]see you [F#]through
You'll [F#m]last about as long as[B] stoplight roses [E]do.
Stoplight [F#m]roses
[B7] In their sad array. [E] [E7]
Love's promise in [A]cellophane lace
[B7] Or dead givea[E]way? [E7]
[A] You'll need time to d[Am]evise
[E] A stylish [F#]plan
And you'll [F#m]do it driving over to
[B] The stoplight roses [E]man. [E7]
And if [A]you believe your same-old u[Am]sed-to-be
[E] Will see you [F#]through
You'll [F#m]last about as long as [B]stoplight roses [E]do.
