I Threw Away The Rose
recorded by Hank Snow
written by Merle Haggard
 
G C G
Once I lived a life of wine and roses
D7 G
And I drank a lot back then for one concern
C G
Success for me lay just around the corner
A7 D7
I thought my social friends would help me make the turn

G C G
But now I'm paying for the days of wine and roses
D7 G
A victim of the drunken life I chose
C G
Now all my social friends look down their noses
D7 G
Cause I kept the wine and threw away the rose

C G
I stood by and watched the bottle take control of me
D7 G
The turn I made was not the one I'd planned
C G
And I watched my social standings slip away from me
A7 D7
While I watched the bottle slowly take command

G C G
But now I'm paying for the days of wine and roses
D7 G
A victim of the drunken life I chose
C G
Now all my social friends look down their noses
D7 G
Cause I kept the wine and threw away the rose
