I Kept The Roses chords - Townes Tenille

Townes Tenille Lyrics


            [Verse 1]
D
I tore all the pictures, from all of their frames
Em
And all of your t-shirts, I gave them away
A                        A7
I gave up those friends, we both hung around
G                         A
I gave up that bar on the east side of town
 
D
Quit drivin’ by to, see if you’re home
Em
And I took your dad’s number right out of my phone
A                    A7                     D
I came to my senses, and I gave up drinkin’ alone
 
[Chorus]
               G                  D
But I kept the roses, right by my bed
                      F#m
And they sure make me lonely
                   A
But I’m smilin’ instead
                      Em
‘Cause you weren’t the one babe Bm But you were the closest G A I let the rest of us go G D But I kept the roses [Verse 2] D I guess they remind me of how love can feel Em Sometimes it don’t work, doesn’t mean it ain’t real A A7 We had something different, we had something great G A7 But somethings just wilt away [Chorus] G D But I kept the roses, right by my bed F#m And they sure make me lonely A But I’m smilin’ instead Em ‘Cause you weren’t the one babe Bm But you were the closest G A I let the rest of us go G D But I kept the roses [Bridge] D La la la la Em La la la la A A7 D La la la la la la la la la la [Chorus] G D But I kept the roses, right by my bed F#m And they sure make me lonely A But I’m smilin’ instead Em ‘Cause you weren’t the one babe Bm But you were the closest G A I let the rest of us go G D But I kept the roses [Outro] G A I let the rest of us go G D But I kept the roses
