Song:   The Rose 
Artist: Midler, Bette 
----------------------------------------------------------------------

By: Steve Smigiel

I’ll give you what you need to do the song, including all the words. 
I chorded this for
a guy to sing and with open chords for an acoustic guitar. It starts out sparse and quiet,
then builds to a dramatic conclusion. Print and play!
Tuning is E A D G B E
Chords used are: E B A G#m 

Chord shapes:
    E    B    A    G#m
e|--0----0----0-----4----|
B|--0----0----0-----4----|
G|--9----8----6-----4----|
D|--9----9----7-----6----|
A|--7----9----7-----6----|
E|--0----7----5-----4----|

E                        B
Some say love, it is a river, 
      A    B            E  
That drowns the tender reed
E                        B          
Some say love, it is a razor, 
      A    B               E  
That leaves your soul to bleed
          G#m           A
Some say love it is a hunger, 
                   B
An endless aching need
E                    B
I say love it is a flower and 
A  B          E
You its only seed

E                             B
It's the heart afraid of breaking 
      A   B            E  
That never learns to dance
E                          B          
It's the dream afraid of waking 
     A    B         E  
That never takes a chance
         G#m                A
It's the one, who won't be taken 
                   B
Who cannot seem to give
        E                B
And the soul afraid of dying 
       A  B           E
That never learns to live

E                             B
When the night has been too lonely 
         A  B               E  
And the road has been too long
E                          B          
And you find that love is only 
          A  B          E  
For the lucky and the strong
      G#m             A
Just remember in the winter 
                        B
Far beneath the bitter snow
          E                  B
Lies the seed that with the sun's love, 
         A   B             E
In the spring becomes the rose


It’s a beautiful song, enjoy. Peace

Steven

This isn't so much of a correction, but more of an elaboration.
I play this in the key of G. I will post it later.
Have a groovy day, man.
