Rose In Paradise chords – Waylon Jennings

 Intro:  D C G D 
Verse 1
 D C 
She was a flower for the takin'
 G D 
Her beauty cut just like a knife.
 D C     
He was a banker from Macon. 
 G D 
He swore he'd love her all his life.

Verse 2
 D C 
He bought her a mansion on a mountain,
 G D  
With a floral garden and a lot of land.
 D C 
But paradise became her prison
 G D 
That Georgia banker was a jealous man

Chorus
 Bm G 
And every time he talked about her
 Bm G A 
You could see the fire in his eyes  

...and he'd say...

 D C 
I would walk through hell on Sunday
 G D 
To keep my rose in paradise

Verse 3
 D C 
He hired a man to tend the garden
 G D 
Keep an eye on her while he was gone
 D C 
Some say they ran away together
 G D 
Some say that gardener left alone

Verse 4
 D C 
Now that banker is an old man
 G D 
That mansions crumblin' down
 D C 
He sits all day and stares at the garden
 G D 
Not a trace of her was ever found

Chorus
 Bm G 
And every time he talked about her
 Bm G A 
You could see the fire in his eyes  

...and he'd say...

 D C 
I would walk through hell on Sunday
 G D 
To keep my rose in paradise

Verse 5
 D C 
Now there's a rose out in the garden
 G D 
It's beauty cuts just like a knife
 D C 
Some say it even grows in the winter time
 G D 
And blooms in the dead of the night 

Outro:  D C G D  X 4 and fade
