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
