Written and recorded by Dorsey Burnette
[G]In the spring the roses [C]always turn red
But [D7]not if you don’t have some place to lay your weary [G]head
Now my woman she don’t [C]cry anymore
She got [D7]use to dusty highways ragged clothes and living [G]poor
I met her she was seventeen in the [C]springtime of her years
[D7]Side by side we laughed and cried but the good times disa[G]ppeared
And all she had left was some [C]wore out hand me downs
An [D7]album full of photographs and the good time party [G]gals
I meant to fill up her cup with a [C]new kind of life
Cause [D7]the pain inside her heart really cut me like a [G]knife
We went running across the country with [C]grit in our eyes
[D7]Sometimes she wished to God that she could lay right down and [G]die
Now every Sunday I take roses where [C]she was laid to rest
It’s a [D7]lonely world without her it gets hard to do your [G]best
But there’s a road that leads to heaven where [C]there’s no more pain to bear
I’m [D7]gonna do my best to make it cause I know that she’ll be [G]there
