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
