Intro: Pick chords from C to F, G, back to C

C                           F
The sun goes down in Calvin County
     G                       C
neon lights from an old beer sign
                                    F
shown through the window out on the sidewalk
            G              C
as I walked in to pass the time
                              F
I looked around sat down at a table
                G                  C
ordered beef on rye and a glass of wine
                C                      F
and through the door came a little old lady
        G                                       C
she was sellin' paper roses and they old cost a dime

*Chorus*
      G            F
Paper Rosie, Paper Rosie
    G                                        C
she sold ya paper roses but they only cost a dime


Silver hair that's lost it's gold
trembling hands as she passed a row
red cray paper made nature's bouquet
help a little old lady buy a rose today
I took the rose from her trembling hand
with eyes of age she smiled and walked away
like a breath of spring I could smell the rose
it came alive and I heard her say

*Chorus*

Buy my roses, pretty roses
they're only made of paper but they only cost a dime


I went to look for her outside
a spray of roses lay by her side
the sky lit up and the choir sang
a thousand voices as the church bells rang

*Chorus*

They sang Rosie, Paper Rosie
She sold ya paper roses but they only cost a dime
Paper Rosie, Paper Rosie
She sold ya paper roses but they only cost a dime
