PURPLE ROSES

c    Dm7    F  G  C

          C
There's a rose bush in the garden

     Dm7
Been there since I was born

     F              G             C
That celebrates its age without fear

C        
I touch the velvet petals

    Dm7
And smell the breath of angels

    F               G           C
And pick the purple roses every year 

C                                               Dm7
Now you think you're passed your prime my sweet woman

     F                G       C
Your use-by date is faded and grey

C                                       Dm7
But sad and sorry thoughts like that my darlin'

   F               G      C
Is throwin' purple roses away 


You're tired of pretending that you're younger
When gravity is real and here to stay
So you wear your clothes more easily for comfort
You used to be too skinny anyway 

Now you're looking in the mirror
A picture of your Mother
But you don't see the woman that I see
Denying grace and pride the good Lord gave you
Is throwin' purple roses away 

Yeah, sad and sorry thoughts like that my darlin'
Is throwin' purple roses away
