Rose In Paradise
Written by Stewart Harris & Jim McBride
Recorded by Chris Young with Willie Nelson

Intro.:  | (D)  | (C)  | (G)  | (D)  |

(D) She was a flower for the (C)takin', (G) her beauty cut just like a (D)knife
And he was a banker from (C)Macon, (G) he swore to love her all his (D)life
He bought her a mansion on a (C)mountain (G) with a formal garden and a lot a land (D)
But paradise became her (C)prison, (G) that Georgia banker was a jealous man (D)

(Chorus)
(Bm) Every time he'd talk a-(G)bout her, (Bm) you could see the fire in his (G)eyes (A)
He'd say, (D) "I would walk through Hell on (C)Sunday (G) to keep my Rose in Paradise" (D)

(D) He hired a man to tend the garden, (C) (G) and keep an eye on her while he was (D)gone
Some say they ran away together, (C) (G) some say that gardener left alone (D)
Now the banker is an old (C) man, (G) and the mansion crumblin' (D)down
He sits all day and stares at the (C)garden, (G) not a trace of her was (D)ever found

(Chorus)
(Bm) Every time he'd talk a-(G)bout her, (Bm) you could see the fire in his (G)eyes (A)
He'd say, (D) "I would walk through Hell on (C)Sunday (G) to keep my Rose in Paradise" (D)

(D) Now there's a rose out in the garden, (C) (G) its beauty cuts just like a knife (D)
They say it even grows in the (C)winter time, (G) and blooms in the dead of the (D)night

Outro.:  | (D)  | (C)  | (G)  | (D)  | --- repeat times to fade
