Hey everyone, and welcome to my by-ear
version of the totally marvelous song "Roses"
by the equally marvelous Pacific Air!
Please enjoy this very easy to learn song, and may
it bring you joy as it did to me! :D


Am (x02210)
G6 (320000)
Em (022000)
Cmaj7 (x32000)

NOTE: During the verses I only play certain strings (A, D and G) to make it sound more 
like the album version. The strumming pattern is very simple - eight beats, only downstrokes.

NOTE: During the intro, feel free to improvise the melody, that's what I do. Although, 
if do want to know a bit more, I play a full downstroke and then pick my way back up in 
some random rythm, just to play another full downstroke with the next chord.

To sum it all up, this is how it should look:

Verse: Am, Am, G6, G6

Chorus: Am, G6, Em, G6

Post-chorus: Am, G6, Em, G6 (NOTE: you can play it -Am, Am, G6, G6- aswell)

Girl-singing-verse 1: Am, Am, G6, G6
                      Am, G6, Cmaj7, Am
Girl-singing-verse 2: Am, Am, G6, G6
                      Am, Am, G6, G6
                      Cmaj7, Am


But don't take my word for it, I'm no scientist - this is just my very amaturely made version!

[Intro]

[Verse]
      Am
I don't know who let you in
            G6
You're too bold to give a shit
                 Am
The sound of the ocean makes you smile
                    G6
While the smell of seaweeds on your mind

[Verse]
             Am
You run your hand against my cheek
             G6
you want my fingers on your lips
          Am
So let me take you to the sand
           G6
Before the California sun is gone

[Chorus]
  Am-G6                  Em                   G6
    I don't want to know if you fall down and you love roses
  Am-G6                  Em                   G6
    I don't want to know when you fall down and you love roses

[Post-chorus]
Am, G6, Em, G6   (x2)

[Verse]
             Am
The scripted memories I found
         G6
From my brain to call on them
           Am                              G6
The bit of roses isn't shy but they aren't used to being dry
            Am
I watch the way you bite your lips
               G6
Your lipstick cracks with every kiss
            Am                               G6
The morning sun is on the hills as I turn my key to let you in

[Chorus]
  Am-G6                  Em                   G6
    I don't want to know if you fall down and you love roses
  Am-G6                  Em                   G6
    I don't want to know when you fall down and you love roses

[Post-chorus]

[Girl-singing-verse 1]
Am                G6
I know you can't understand the way I am
         Am                 G6
But you assume to know what I do
            Cmaj7             Am
And I don't want that kind of man

[Girl-singing-verse 2]
Am
I don't want you in my life
        G6
I only loved you for one night
         Am
A flower blooms before it dies
              G6          Cmaj7                   Am (single strum)
But you don't know...that I don't wanna to be with you

[Chorus]
  Am-G6                  Em                   G6
    I don't want to know if you fall down and you love roses
  Am-G6                  Em                   G6
    I don't want to know when you fall down and you love roses

[Post-chorus]

End on Am...
