Verse 1.
      A 
I can hardly bare the sight of lipstick
              D                 A
On the cigarettes there in the ashtray
Lying cold the way you left them
                           D                     A
But at least your lips carressed them while you packed
      D
And a lip print on a half-filled cup of coffee
                           A
That you poured and didn't drink
         E7
But at least you thought you wanted it
                                       A
That's so much more than I can say for me

Chorus:
                         D
What a good year for the roses
E7                       A    
Many blooms still linger there
                             Bm7
The lawn could stand another mowing
E7                    A
  Funny, I don't even care
                       D
As you turned to walk away
E7                       D   A
  As the door behind you closes 
                         Bm7
The only thing I know to say
E7                              A  D,  A/C# E7, A, D/A, A, 
  It's been a good year for the roses

Verse 2.
      A
After three full years of marriage
                              D               A
It's the first time that you haven't made the bed
I guess the reason we're not talking
                          D               A
There's so little left to say, we haven't said
        D        
While a million thoughts go running through my mind
                        A
I find I haven't said a word
         E7
From the bedroom the familiar sound
                                 A  
Of our one baby's crying goes un-heard


Chorus:
                         D
What a good year for the roses
E7                       A    
Many blooms still linger there
                             Bm7
The lawn could stand another mowing
E7                    A
  Funny, I don't even care
                       D
As you turned to walk away
E7                       D   A
  As the door behind you closes 
                         Bm7
The only thing I know to say
E7                              A   D  A/C# E7, A 
  It's been a good year for the ro- o- ses

Think the E7 works better just as an E
