The Rose chords
Bette Midler

C *
         C            G
Some say love it is a river
     F     G           C       
That drowns the tender reed
Some say love it is a razor
     F     G             C
That leaves your soul to bleed

C        Em           Am
Some say love it is a hunger
   F              G
An endless aching need
      C            G
I say love it is a flower
    F  G          C
And you it's only seed

         C               G
It's the heart afraid of breaking
     F    G          C
That never learns to dance
It's the dream afraid of waking 
     F    G          C
that never takes the chance
         Em               Am
It's the one who won't be taken
       F           G
Who cannot seem to give
        C              G
And the soul afraid of dying 
     F    G          C
that never learns to live

         C                  G
When the night has been too lonely
        F   G             C
And the road has been too long
And you think that love is only
        F    G        C
For the lucky and the strong

       Em            Am
Just remember in the winter 
      F                G
far beneath the bitter snows
Lies the seed
That with the sun's love
       F     G
In the spring
Becomes the rose

* Alternate:

Capo III

C  = A
G  = E
F  = D
Em = C#m
Am = F#m

The D chord above "dying" should be a G, but otherwise I like the tab.
