Good Year For The Roses  Jerry Chestnut



I can [A]hardly bare the sight of lipstick
On the cigaret[D]tes there in the a[A]shtray
Lying cold the way you left them
But at least your lips carr[D]essed them while you p[A]acked
And a [D]lip print on a half-filled cup of coffee
That you poured and didn't [A]drink
But at le[E7]ast you thought you wanted it
That's so much more than I can say for [A]me

Chorus:
What a good year for the [D]roses
[E7]Many blooms still linger [A]there
The lawn could stand another [Bm7]mowing
[E7]  Funny, I don't even [A]care
As you turned to walk a[D]way
[E7]  As the door behind you [D]clos[A]es
The only thing I know to [Bm7]say
E7 A D, A/C# E7, A, D/A, A,
It's been a good year for the roses

Verse 2.
After [A]three full years of marriage
It's the first time that you h[D]aven't made the [A]bed
I guess the reason we're not talking
There's so little left to [D]say, we haven't [A]said
While a [D]million thoughts go running through my mind
I find I haven't said a [A]word
From the [E7]bedroom the familiar sound
Of our one baby's crying goes un-[A]heard


Chorus:
What a good year for the [D]roses
[E7]Many blooms still linger [A]there
The lawn could stand another [Bm7]mowing
[E7]  Funny, I don't even [A]care
As you turned to walk a[D]way
[E7]  As the door behind you [D]clos[A]es
The only thing I know to [Bm7]say
E7 A D A/C# E7, A
It's been a good year for the ro- o- ses
