Blood and Roses by The Smithereens - Transcribbed by DWdrummer67

This is a little different from the versions you'll find online. I thought was 
easier if the whole song was chorded out. During the break, I do a single strum 
between the Em and D for 4 counts. Feel free to take liberties with it, it's a 
great tune. Enjoy!

Tuning: Standard

Em      G   Em G D Em         G    Em G D
It was long ago… seems like yesterday
   Em        G     Em        G D Em      G        Em G D
I saw you standing in the rain… then I heard you say
   C                    D         Em
I want to love but it comes out wrong
   C                   D      Em
I want to live but I don’t belong
    C                  D              Em G Em G D Em G Em G D
I close my eyes and I see blood and roses
          Em    G        Em     G D   Em      G        Em G D
Brought flowers in the springtime… I told her we were wed
     Em    G        Em    G  D     Em        G        Em        G D
In wintertime the roses died… her blood ran cold and then she said
   C                    D         Em
I want to love but it comes out wrong
   C                   D      Em
I want to live but I don’t belong
    C                  D              Em G Em G D Em G Em G D Em…
I close my eyes and I see blood and roses
