Convict And The Rose Song Lyrics and Chords by Hank Snow

 

Convict And The Rose
Recorded by Hank Snow
Written by Betty Chapin and Robert King
G 
Within my prison cell so  
D7 
dreary
 
Alone I sit with weary  
G 
heart
 
I'm thinking of my lonely  
D7 
darling
 
From her forever I must  
G 
part
 
A rose she sent me as a  
D7 
token
 
She sent it just to light my  
G 
gloom
 
To tell me that her heart was  
D7 
broken
 
To cheer me fore I meet my  
G 
doom
 
She wrote I took it from the  
D7 
garden
 
Where once we wandered side by  
G 
side
 
But now you hold no hope of  
D7 
pardon
 
And I can never be your  
G 
bride
 
That old judge would not believe my  
D7 
story
 
The jury said I have to  
G 
pay
 
Now to the rose and all its  
D7 
glory
 
Not guilty is all that I can  
G 
say
 
Goodbye sweetheart for in the  
D7 
morning
 
I'll meet my Maker and re
G 
pose
 
And when I go at daylight  
D7 
darling
 
Against my heart they'll find your  
G 
rose
