Verse 1: A D A She was called a scarlet woman by the people E Who would go to church but left me in the street A D With no parents of my own, I never had a home B7 E And an eighteen year old boy has got to eat. Verse 2: A D A She found me outside one Sunday morning E Begging money from a man I didn't know A D A She took me in and wiped away my childhood B7 E D A E A woman of the streets this lady Rose. Chorus: A D A This bed of Rose's that I lay on E Where I was taught to be a man A D A This bed of Rose's where I'm livin' B7 E D A E Is the only kind of life I understand. Verse3: A D A She was a handsome woman, just thirty-five E Who was spoken to in town by very few A D She managed a Lady of the Evening business B7 E Like most of the town wished they could do. Verse 4: A D D And I learned all the things that a man should know E From a woman not approved of I suppose A D A But she died knowing that I really loved her B7 E Off life's bramble bush, I picked a rose. (Repeat Chorus 2x)
