Paper Rosie

Song Author Dallas Harms Performer: Gene Watson og Dallas Harms Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]The sun goes down in Calvin [C]county
Neon [D7]lights from an old beer [G]sign
Shown through the window out on the [C]sidewalk
As I walked [D7]in to pass the [G]time

I looked around sat down at a [C]table
Ordered beef on [D7]rye and a glass of [G]wine
And through the door came a little old [C]lady
She was [D7]selling paper roses and they only cost a [G]dime

Paper [D7]Rosie paper [C]Rosie
She [D7]sold you paper roses
But they only cost a [G]dime

Silver hair that's lost its [C]gold
Tremb[D7]ling hand as she passed the [G]rose
Red Crepe paper made nature's [C]bouquet
Help a little old [D7]lady buy a rose [G]today

I took the rose from her trembling [C]hand
With [D7]eyes of age she smiled and walked [G]away
Like a breath of spring I could smell the [C]rose
It came [D7]alive and I heard her [G]say  

Paper [D7]Rosie paper [C]Rosie
She [D7]sold you paper roses
But they only cost a [G]dime

I went to look for her [C]outside
A [D7]spray of roses lay by her [G]side
The sky lit up and the choir [C]sang
A thousand [D7]voices as the church bells [G]rang

They sang [D7]Rosie paper [C]Rosie
She [D7]sold you paper roses
But they only cost a [G]dime

Paper [D7]Rosie paper [C]Rosie
She [D7]sold you paper roses
But they only cost a [G]dime


The sun goes down in Calvin county
Neon lights from an old beer sign
Shown through the window out on the sidewalk
As I walked in to pass the time

I looked around sat down at a table
Ordered beef on rye and a glass of wine
And through the door came a little old lady
She was selling paper roses and they only cost a dime

Paper Rosie paper Rosie
She sold you paper roses
But they only cost a dime

Silver hair that's lost its gold
Trembling hand as she passed the rose
Red Crepe paper made nature's bouquet
Help a little old lady buy a rose today

I took the rose from her trembling hand
With eyes of age she smiled and walked away
Like a breath of spring I could smell the rose
It came alive and I heard her say

Paper Rosie paper Rosie
She sold you paper roses
But they only cost a dime

I went to look for her outside
A spray of roses lay by her side
The sky lit up and the choir sang
A thousand voices as the church bells rang

They sang Rosie paper Rosie
She sold you paper roses
But they only cost a dime

Paper Rosie paper Rosie
She sold you paper roses
But they only cost a dime
