Wild Irish Rose Recorded by George Jones Written by Bobby Braddock [3/4 time]
G C G They sent him to Asia to fight in a war C G D7 He came back home crazy and asking what for G C G They had him committed oh medals and all C G D7 G To a mental hospital with rubber walls
C G They cut off the funding oh they cut off the lights C G D7 He hit the street running that cold winter night G C G Now the streets are the only place he can call home C G D7 G He seems oh so lonely but he's never alone
B7 C G He lies there holding his Wild Irish Rose C G D7 This crazy old fool in the smelly old clothes G B7 Em C He could have had something much better God knows G Em D7 G Than a half empty bottle of Wild Irish Rose
C G A baby named Scarlet with laughing blue eyes C G D7 Spoken: Has been in his wallet ah way back since '65 G C G So much was forgotten oh so far back in time C G D7 G Way down in the bottom of a river of wine
C G Spoken: You know they found him at Clarksville West 25th C G D7 Spoken: They can't even find a heartbeat Lord his fingers are so stiff G C G Spoken: Just like they're all frozen he's holding her tight C G D7 G But the habit oh it's broken this is Roses' last night
B7 C G He lies there holding his Wild Irish Rose C G D7 But his soul's in a place where a real hero goes G B7 Em C Now he's got something better much better God knows G Em D7 C G Than a half empty bottle of Wild Irish R-ose
