Rose in Paradise
recorded by Waylon Jennings
written by Jim McBride and Stewart Harris

C                        F
She was a flower for the taking
   G7                      C
Her beauty cut just like a knife
He was a banker from Macon
   G7                          C
He swore he'd love her all his life
He bought her a mansion on the hillside
With a formal garden and a lot a land
But paradise became her prison
     G7                           C
That Georgia banker was a jealous man

Every time he'd talk about her
   C                          G7
You could see the fire in his eyes
     C                                F
He'd say I would walk through Hell on Sunday
   G7                  C
To keep my Rose in Paradise
He hired a man to tend the garden
    G7                                 C
And keep an eye on things while he was gone
Some say they ran away together
     G7                      C
Some say that gardener left alone

Now the banker is an old man
     G7                 C
That mansion's tumbling down
He sits all day and he stares at the garden
      G7                    C
Not a trace of her was ever found
Repeat # 3
Now there's a rose out in the garden
   G7                       C
Its beauty cuts just like a knife
They say that it even grows in the winter time
    G7                        C
And blooms in the dead of the night
