A GOOD YEAR FOR THE ROSES
COUNTING CROWS



STANDARD TUNING
NO CAPO

INTRO:C

VERSE:
C
I can hardly stand the sight of lipstick
           F                   C
on the cigarettes there in the ashtray.
Lying cold the way you left them,
                          F
but at least your lips caressed them
 C                 C7
while you packed.
       F
Or the lip print on a half-filled cup
of coffee that you poured
     C
and didn't drink.
        G
But at least you thought you wanted it
                                      C
which is so much more than I can say for me.

CHORUS:
                               F        G
It's been a good year for the roses
                  C
Many blooms still linger there.
                             Dm        G
The lawn could stand another mowing
                          C
it's funny, I don't even care
                      F           G
But as you turned and walked away
                       F   C
As the door behind you closes
                            Dm        G
The only thing I thought to say
                            F  C
is what a good year for the roses

VERSE:
After three, four years of marriage
it's the first time that you haven't made the bed
I guess the reason we're not talking,
is there's so little left to say that we haven't said
While a million thoughts go racing through my mind
I guess I haven't said a word
From the bedroom, the familiar sound
of our one baby's crying goes unheard 

CHORUS:
                               F        G
It's been a good year for the roses
                  C
Many blooms still linger there.
                             Dm        G
The lawn could stand another mowing
                          C
it's funny, I don't even care
                         F           G
But as you turned and walked away
                       F   C
As the door behind you closes
                            Dm        G
The only thing I thought to say
                        F         C
is what a good year for the roses

Clearly wrong. Just not even close to their live version or any other version...not sure where this version comes from but this is not the Counting Crows version and clearly not anyone's version.
