Bed of roses

Song Author Don Reid Performer: the Statler Brothers
[C]She was called a scarlet [F]woman by the [C]people
Who would go to church but left me in the [G7]street
With no [C]parents of my own I [F]never had a home
And an [D7]eighteen year old boy has got to [G7]eat   

[C]She found me outside [F]one Sunday [C]morning
Begging money from a man I didn't [G]know
She [C]took me in and [F]wiped away my [C]childhood
A woman of the [G7]streets this lady [C]Rose [G7]    

This [C]bed of [F]Rose's that I [C]lay on
Where I was taught to be a [G7]man   
This [C]bed of [F]Rose's where I'm [C]living
Is the only kind of [G7]life I under[C]stand [G7]    

[C]She was a handsome [F]woman just [C]thirty-five
Who was spoken to in town by very [G7]few   
She [C]managed a late [F]evening business
Like [D7]most of the town wished they could [G7]do   

And I [C]learned all the [F]things that a man should [C]know
From a woman not approved of I [G7]suppose
But she [C]died knowing [F]that I really [C]loved her
Of life's bramble [G7]bush I picked a [C]rose [G7]    

This [C]bed of [F]Rose's that I [C]lay on
Where I was taught to be a [G7]man   
This [C]bed of [F]Rose's where I'm [C]living
Is the only kind of [G7]life I under[C]stand [G7]    

She was called a scarlet woman by the people
Who would go to church but left me in the street
With no parents of my own I never had a home
And an eighteen year old boy has got to eat

She found me outside one Sunday morning
Begging money from a man I didn't know
She took me in and wiped away my childhood
A woman of the streets this lady Rose

This bed of Rose's that I lay on
Where I was taught to be a man
This bed of Rose's where I'm living
Is the only kind of life I understand

She was a handsome woman just thirty-five
Who was spoken to in town by very few
She managed a late evening business
Like most of the town wished they could do

And I learned all the things that a man should know
From a woman not approved of I suppose
But she died knowing that I really loved her
Of life's bramble bush I picked a rose

This bed of Rose's that I lay on
Where I was taught to be a man
This bed of Rose's where I'm living
Is the only kind of life I understand
