A Rose for Emily  The Zombies

Song: A rose for Emily
Tabbed by:DJ
Tuning:Standard
Another great track from The Zombies classic 'Odessey & oracle' album
[G] The summer is h[D]ere at last, [Fdim] the sky is ov[A/E]ercast,
And[Ddim] no one brings a [A/C#]rose for Emi - [Bm]ly,[Bm/E] [E7]
[G] She watches her flo[D]wers grow, [Fdim] while lovers [A/E]come and go,
To [Ddim]give each other r[A/C#]oses from her t[Bm]ree, but[E7/D] not a rose for Em[A]ily!
[Bb] [F] [C#dim] [D]  
 
 Emily------, can't you see, there's nothing you can do?
 (Emily, can't you see, see-------- how...) 

[Gdim] [D/F#] [Adim] [D] [D/C] [G]  
 
 There's loving everywhere, but none------- for you---!
 ...the sun is shi------------------ning again, but not for you-----!)

[G] Her roses are fa[D]ding now, [Fdim] she keeps her p[A/E]ride somehow,
That's[Ddim] all she has pro - te[A/C#]cting her from p[Bm]ain,[Bm/E] [E7]
[G] And, as the ye[D]ars go by, [Fdim] she will grow [A/E]old and die,
The [Ddim]roses in her g[A/C#]arden fade a - [Bm7]way,
Not [A/C#]one left for her g[Bm7]rave, [E7/D] not a rose for Em[A]ily!
[Bb] [F] [C#dim] [D]  
 
 Emily------, can't you see, there's nothing you can do?
 (Emily, can't you see, see-------- how...) 

[Gdim] [D/F#] [Adim] [D] [D/C] [G]  
 
 There's loving everywhere, but none------- for you---!
 ...the sun is shi------------------ning again, but not for you------!)

[G] Her roses are fa[D]ding now, [Fdim] she keeps her p[A/E]ride somehow,
That's[Ddim] all she has pro - te[A/C#]cting her from p[Bm]ain,[Bm/E] [E7]
[G] And, as the ye[D]ars go by, [Fdim] she will grow [A/E]old and die,
The [Ddim]roses in her g[A/C#]arden fade a - [Bm7]way,
Not [A/C#]one left for her g[Bm7]rave, [E7/D] not a rose for Em[A]ily!
