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
