George Jones - A Good Year For The Roses lyrics

[A] I can hardly bare the sight of lipstick

on the cigar-[D]-ettes there [A] in the ashtray

lyin? cold the way you left them

at least your lips caress-[D]-ed them [A] while you packed

And a [D] lip print on a half-filled cup of coffee

that you poured and [A] didn?t drink

but at [E] least you thought you wanted it

that?s so much more than I can say [A] for me


But what a good year for the [D] roses

[E] many blooms still linger [A] there

the lawn could stand another [D] mowin?

[E] it?s funny, I don?t even [A] care

and when you turned and walked [D] away

[E] and as the door behind you [D] closes [A]

the only thing I know to [D] say

[E] it?s been a good year for the [D] roses [A]

[A] After three full years of marriage

it?s the first time that you [D] haven?t [A] made the bed

I guess the reason we?re not talkin?

there?s so little left to say, [D] we [A] haven?t said

while a [D] million thoughts go runnin? through my mind

I find I haven?t [A] spoke a word

and from the [E] bedroom those familiar sounds

of our one baby?s cryin? goes un-[A]-heard

Repeat Chorus
