SECOND HAND ROSE
Recorded by Roy Drusky
Words and music by Grant Clarke, James Hanley & Harlan Howard
[E] Second hand shoes, Second hand clothes
[A] They all call her Second Hand Rose
[B7] They all think they're pretty smart
But Rose don't have a Second Hand [E] heart.
[E] I love a little girl who [A] lives across the way
[B7] I go to see her nearly ev'ry [E] day
And when I get the money, I'll [A] take her far away
So the [B7] town can't gather 'round her and [E] say.
They tease her about her clothes and things
It's hard to believe some folks can be so mean
But when I get the money, I'll buy her the best
I'll take Rose, you can have all the rest.
