Mean Mary - Rose Tattoo


CAPO: 2nd Fret



[Intro]
F  E  Am

[Verse 1]
                               F
The sun's gonna rise and in my cold green eyes 
       E7
Is the hell that I’ve been through
Am                                   F
What I learned tonight, is that this world ain’t right 
        E7                    Am   F  E7  Am    F  E7  Am
And the devil’s got a rose tattoo


[Verse 2]
                      F
Eight-fifty-one, we arrived at the club 
      E7                   Am
I was wearing my last good dress
                    F
My man had bet everything he could get 
          E7                          Am
And I was trying to get us out of the mess
                  F
At nine o’clock I made my walk 
       E7             Am
Like a tigress to the stage
                                      F
And the people would stand like I was worth ten grand 
        E7                  Am
And not singing for minimum wage


[Verse 3]
                          F
Ten minutes in, they were passing the gin 
        E7            Am
And the club became a roar
                              F
My man was having a ball, but all I recall 
       E7                             Am
Is his face when he looked toward the door
                           F
I was going to town when a hush came down
    E7                     Am
The dance floor became a tomb
                            F
A woman stepped in, she was small and slim 
        E7                             Am
But her presence filled the whole damn room


[Verse 4]
                        F
My man went pale like a torn up sail
       E7                      Am
As the woman walked right past me
                          F
Her dress was grey like a stormy day
       E7                     Am
And it flowed like a restless sea
                             F
I went flat on a note, I was watching her throat 
           E7               Am
She wore a necklace of pure jade
                                 F
And her sleeve hung down off one side of her gown 
          E7                     Am
To show a rose down her shoulder blade


[Bridge]
       F
I lost sight of her and the rest was a blur 
     Am
As I sang and paced the stage
 F
Eleven-o'-one, I was finally done 
      E7
And I sprung like a cat from a cage
       F
He was gone from there, so I searched everywhere 
       Am
Till I found a girl I knew
              D                       F
She said, "He left your show about an hour ago 
       E7                   Am   F  E7  Am    F  E7  Am
With a woman with a rose tattoo"


[Verse 5]
                               F
I walked the street till I was dead on my feet
      E7                Am
And I hit every joint I knew
                               F
I heard a man say, "I saw that woman in grey 
            E7              Am
I think her name is Penny LaRue"
                     F
Where she’s been and what’s her sin
E7                    Am
No one in New Orleans knows
                               F
All they can tell, is she’s an angel from hell 
       E7          Am
With a tattoo of a rose


[Verse 6]
                     F
I said a prayer, let down my hair 
      E7                     Am
I was now in the bad part of town
                 F
It was 3am and I followed some men 
     E7                      Am
To a club called the Underground
                          F
I stepped inside, I could feel the vibe 
          E7              Am
There was danger in the room
                       F
And a whole lotta sin, sweat and skin 
        E7                Am
And the smell of cheap perfume


[Verse 7]
                                    F
But through the lusty display was a woman in grey 
E7                    Am
Smiling like she knew
                                  F
When she turned around, where her dress hung down 
      E7                      Am
Was a shoulder with a rose tattoo
                       F
I saw the love she’d deprived me of
       E7                        Am
He was standing in that restless throng
                  F
When suddenly, he noticed me 
    E7                        Am
But something just a-felt all wrong


[Bridge]
F
I heard a shout, a knife came out
   Am
My man got in the way
       F
He was dead as a door before he hit the floor 
          E7
While the band continued to play
  F
I tried to scream, but like a horrible dream 
          Am                  D
There was nothing I could do
          F
Time died, a siren cried
        E7                 Am   F  E7  Am    F  E7  Am
I saw a flash of a rose tattoo


[Verse 8]
                       F
I’m on the curb with a cop named Herb 
   E7                   Am
Trying to sort out this mess
                              F
It’s five-twenty-five, I feel barely alive 
        E7                   Am
And I’m wearing my last good dress
                               F
The sun’s gonna rise and in my cold green eyes
       E7             Am
Is the hell I’ve been through
                                     F
What I learned tonight, is that this world ain’t right 
        E7                    F   E7  Am
And the devil’s got a rose tattoo
