Janis Joplin - The Rose

I had to learn this to play it at my friend wedding and
i couldn't find any tabs for it, so here it is. 

C                   G
Some say love, it is a river,
 F   Fm                C
that drowns the tender reed.
   C              G
Some say love, it is a razor,
F  Fm                 C
that leaves your soul to bleed.
Em                 Am
Some say love, it is a hunger,
 F               C   Em7
an endless aching need.
   C          G
I say love, it is a flower, 
  F  Fm    C
and you it's only seed.


(Pick Chords)

It's the heart, afraid of breaking,
that never, learns to dance.
It's the dream, afraid of waking,
that never, takes the chance.
It's the one, who won't be taken,
who cannot, seem to give.
And the soul, afraid of dying,
that never, learns to live.

(Start Strumming)

When the night has, been to lonley, 
and the road has been to long.
That you think that love is only,
for the lucky and the strong.
Just remember in the winter,
far beneath the bitter snows,
Lies the seed that with the suns love,
in the spring becomes the rose.
