Verse 1:
A                        D            A 
She was called a scarlet woman by the people
                                          E
Who would go to church but left me in the street
        A                    D
With no parents of my own, I never had a home
       B7                                E
And an eighteen year old boy has got to eat.



Verse 2:
A                    D          A
She found me outside one Sunday morning
                                  E
Begging money from a man I didn't know
    A              D             A
She took me in and wiped away my childhood
  B7                             E     D   A   E
A woman of the streets this lady Rose.



Chorus:
     A      D             A
This bed of Rose's that I lay on
                           E
Where I was taught to be a man
     A      D                A
This bed of Rose's where I'm livin'
       B7                  E           D   A   E
Is the only kind of life I understand.



Verse3:
A                  D           A
She was a handsome woman, just thirty-five
                                  E 
Who was spoken to in town by very few
    A                     D 
She managed a Lady of the Evening business
     B7                                 E
Like most of the town wished they could do.



Verse 4:
      A               D                        D
And I learned all the things that a man should know
                               E
From a woman not approved of I suppose
        A            D             A
But she died knowing that I really loved her
    B7                              E
Off life's bramble bush, I picked a rose.


(Repeat Chorus 2x)
