***************** BLACK ROSE *****************
written by Billy Joe Shaver
performed by Waylon Jennings.
Capo on the 3rd fret.
Verse 1:
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
Thanks to David M. Potter for the lyrics.
