One Run for the Roses

Song Author Jerry Chesnut Performer: Cal Smith Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]Talk with me a little while [C7]walk with me one more mile
[F]Meantime I´ll pretend the world´s all [C]clover
[G7]Try to think of something we can [Am]say to make it better
[G7]Nothing to [D7]remind me it´s all [G7]over   

[C]I feel as though I´ve ran a race [C7]here I am in second place
[F]It´s no secret everybody [C]knows it
[F]So pour my wine in a silver cup [C]one more time then [F]hang it up
And [C]this will be my [G7]one run for the [F]ro-se[C]s  

Wishing on the one hand I could [C7]look at love like you can
And [F]take it with a little grain of [C]salt
[G7]Knowing on the other hand I´d never [Am]love this much again
[G7]Or maybe I could [D7]simply laugh it [G7]off   

[C]I may find somebody new [C7]stop my soul from wanting you
[F]I could try but baby I don´t [C]know this
[F]How could I love daffodils when [C]scarlet pedals [F]always will
Remind [C]me of my [G7]one run for the [F]ro-se[C]s  

[G7]If we should meet again can I [F]pretend
I´m just someone who barely [C]knows you
With [G7]time alone on my side I´ll [Am]leave an awful lot of pride
[G7]And finally play the [D7]part I´m sup[G7]pose to

[C]Now I take what´s left of me [C7]try to bow out gracefully
[F]Hoping your new love won´t even [C]notice
[F]One day I may learn to live [C]with violets and [F]daffodils
[C]Knowing I made [G7]one run for the [F]roses
And [C]this will be my [G7]one run for the [F]ro-se[C]s  


Talk with me a little while walk with me one more mile
Meantime I´ll pretend the world´s all clover
Try to think of something we can say to make it better
Nothing to remind me it´s all over

I feel as though I´ve ran a race here I am in second place
It´s no secret everybody knows it
So pour my wine in a silver cup one more time then hang it up
And this will be my one run for the ro-ses

Wishing on the one hand I could look at love like you can
And take it with a little grain of salt
Knowing on the other hand I´d never love this much again
Or maybe I could simply laugh it off

I may find somebody new stop my soul from wanting you
I could try but baby I don´t know this
How could I love daffodils when scarlet pedals always will
Remind me of my one run for the ro-ses

If we should meet again can I pretend
I´m just someone who barely knows you
With time alone on my side I´ll leave an awful lot of pride
And finally play the part I´m suppose to

Now I take what´s left of me try to bow out gracefully
Hoping your new love won´t even notice
One day I may learn to live with violets and daffodils
Knowing I made one run for the roses
And this will be my one run for the ro-ses
