Elvis Costello - Good Year For The Roses chords

Chords
Transpose
Verse 1.
A I can hardly bare the sight of lipstick
D AOn the cigarettes there in the ashtray
Lying cold the way you left them
D ABut at least your lips carressed them while you packed
DAnd a lip print on a half-filled cup of coffee
AThat you poured and didn't drink
E7But at least you thought you wanted it
AThat's so much more than I can say for me
Chorus:
DWhat a good year for the roses
E7 A Many blooms still linger there
Bm7The lawn could stand another mowing
E7 A Funny, I don't even care
DAs you turned to walk away
E7 D A As the door behind you closes
Bm7The only thing I know to say
E7 A D, A/C# E7, A, D/A, A, It's been a good year for the roses
Verse 2.
AAfter three full years of marriage
D AIt's the first time that you haven't made the bed
I guess the reason we're not talking
D AThere's so little left to say, we haven't said
D While a million thoughts go running through my mind
AI find I haven't said a word
E7From the bedroom the familiar sound
A Of our one baby's crying goes un-heard
Chorus:
DWhat a good year for the roses
E7 A Many blooms still linger there
Bm7The lawn could stand another mowing
E7 A Funny, I don't even care
DAs you turned to walk away
E7 D A As the door behind you closes
Bm7The only thing I know to say
E7 A D A/C# E7, A It's been a good year for the ro- o- ses
