verse 1
G
Wonderful things of folks are said
D7                    G
When they have passed away
                                    
Roses adorn the narrow bed
D7                G
Over the sleeping clay

chorus
C                 G
Give me the roses while I live
                   D7
Trying to cheer me on
G
Useless are flowers that you give
D7                G
After the soul is gone

verse 2
Praises are heard not by the dead
D7                G
Roses they cannot speak

Let us not wait till souls have fled
D7                  G
Generous friends to be

chorus
riff on chorus in country style

verse3

Faults are forgiven when folks lie
D7               G
Cold in a narrow bed

Let us forgive them ere they die
D7                      G
Now should the words be said


chorus
