Convict And The Rose Recorded by Hank Snow Written by Betty Chapin and Robert King
G D7 Within my prison cell so dreary G Alone I sit with weary heart D7 I'm thinking of my lonely darling G From her forever I must part
D7 A rose she sent me as a token G She sent it just to light my gloom D7 To tell me that her heart was broken G To cheer me fore I meet my doom
D7 She wrote I took it from the garden G Where once we wandered side by side D7 But now you hold no hope of pardon G And I can never be your bride
D7 That old judge would not believe my story G The jury said I have to pay D7 Now to the rose and all its glory G Not guilty is all that I can say
D7 Goodbye sweetheart for in the morning G I'll meet my Maker and repose D7 And when I go at daylight darling G Against my heart they'll find your rose
