Paper Rosie recorded by Gene Watson written by Dallas Harms
G C The sun goes down in Calvin county D7 G Neon lights from an old beer sign C Shown through the window out on the sidewalk D7 G As I walked in to pass the time
C I looked around sat down at a table D7 G Ordered beef on rye and a glass of wine C And through the door came a little old lady D7 G She was selling paper roses and they only cost a dime
D7 C Paper Rosie paper Rosie D7 She sold you paper roses G But they only cost a dime
C Silver hair that's lost its gold D7 G Trembling hand as she passed the rose C Red Crepe paper made nature's bouquet D7 G Help a little old lady buy a rose today
C I took the rose from her trembling hand D7 G With eyes of age she smiled and walked away C Like a breath of spring I could smell the rose D7 G It came alive and I heard her say
C I went to look for her outside D7 G A spray of roses lay by her side C The sky lit up and the choir sang D7 G A thousand voices as the church bells rang
D7 C They sang Rosie paper Rosie D7 She sold you paper roses G But they only cost a dime
