Convict And The Rose

Song Author Betty Chapin og Robert King Performer: Hank Snow Submitted by: Anonymous

[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


Within my prison cell so dreary
Alone I sit with weary heart
I'm thinking of my lonely darling
From her forever I must part

A rose she sent me as a token
She sent it just to light my gloom
To tell me that her heart was broken
To cheer me fore I meet my doom

She wrote I took it from the garden
Where once we wandered side by side
But now you hold no hope of pardon
And I can never be your bride

That old judge would not believe my story
The jury said I have to pay
Now to the rose and all its glory
Not guilty is all that I can say

Goodbye sweetheart for in the morning
I'll meet my Maker and repose
And when I go at daylight darling
Against my heart they'll find your rose
