Bed Of Roses
Recorded by the Statler Brothers
Written by Don Reid

 G                          C              G 
She was called a scarlet woman by the people
                                           D7 
Who would go to church but left me in the street
         G                     C 
With no parents of my own I never had a home
        A7                                 D7 
And an eighteen year old boy has got to eat

 G                      C            G 
She found me outside one Sunday morning
                                   D 
Begging money from a man I didn't know
     G                C               G 
She took me in and wiped away my childhood
                D7                  G        D7 
 A  woman of the streets this lady Rose

      G        C               G 
This bed of Rose's that I lay on
                            D7 
Where I was taught to be a man
      G        C                  G 
This bed of Rose's where I'm living
                     D7            G        D7 
Is the only kind of life I understand

 G                    C            G 
She was a handsome woman just thirty-five
                                   D7 
Who was spoken to in town by very few
     G                C 
She managed a late evening business
      A7                                   D7 
Like most of the town wished they could do

       G                 C                          G 
And I learned all the things that a man should know
                                D7 
From a woman not approved of I suppose
         G              C               G 
But she died knowing that I really loved her
                   D7                G      D7 
Of life's bramble bush I picked a rose
 
Repeat #3
