A Good Year For The Roses
recorded by George Jones
written by Jerry Chesnut
C
I can hardly bare the sight of lipstick
F C
On the cigar-ettes there in the ashtray

Lying cold the way you left them
F C
At least your lips caressed them while you packed

F
And a lip print on a half-filled cup of coffee
C
That you poured and didn't drink
G7
But at least you thought you wanted it
C
That's so much more than I can say for me

F
It's been a good year for the roses
G7 C
Many blooms still linger there
F
The lawn could stand another mowing
G7 C
It's funny I don't even care

F
And when you turned and walked away
G7 F C
And as the door behind you cl-oses
F
The only thing I know to say
G7 C
It's been a good year for the roses


After three full years of marriage
F C
It's the first time that you haven't made the bed

I guess the reason we're not talking
F C
There's so little left to say we haven't said

F
While a million thoughts go running through my mind
C
I find I haven't spoke a word
G7
And from the bedroom those familiar sounds
C
Of our one baby's crying goes unheard
