Bed Of Roses  Statler Brothers



Verse 1:
[D]She was called a scarlet [G]woman by the [D]people
Who would go to church but left me in the [A7]street
With no [D]parents of my own, I [G]never had a home
And an [E7]eighteen year old boy has got to e[A7]at.

Verse 2:
[D]She found me outs[G]ide one Sunday [D]morning
Taking money from a man I didn't [A7]know
She [D]took me in and [G]wiped away my [D]childhood
A [E7]woman of the [A7]streets this lady [D]Rose.   [G]...[Em]...[A7]...[D]  


This [D]bed of [G]Rose's that I [D]lay on
Where I was taught to be a [A7]man
This [D]bed of [G]Rose's where I'm [D]livin'
Is the [E7]only kind of l[A7]ife I unders[D]tand.   [G]...[Em]...[A7]...[D]

[D]She was a handsome [G]woman, just [D]thirty-five
Who was spoken to in town by very [A7]few
But she [D]managed the ladies main [G]business
Like [Em]most of the town wished they could [A7]do.

Verse 4:
And I [D]learned all the [G]things that a [D]man should know
From a woman not approved of I [A7]suppose.
But she [D]died knowing [G]that I really [D]loved her
Of [Em]life's bramble [A7]bush, I picked a [D]rose.   [G]...[Em]...[A7]...[D]

(Repeat Chorus 2x)
