Subject: Lyr/Chords Add: OCTOBER ROSES (Linda Allen)
Attention guitar players-- I worked these out on autoharp. (I don't have sixths, ninths, sharped chords).

Do these work for you? Please let me know.

(The rest of the words are in DT.)


(Linda Allen)

G      C        Dm  C                                Dm  C
You say you are sorry for the youth that you lack

G          C       Dm    C                        Dm         G      C,G
For the sag of your breasts, for the bend in your back

G             C       Dm   C7               F
For your hair turning grey and the tears that now flow

F              C     Dm    C               G7                 F,G
For the choices you made such a long time ago


G         C     Dm  C                             Dm    C
Spring roses are lovely, they make my heart sing

G          C        Dm, C,Dm  C    F      (Dm)   F
And in summer the roses sweet memories bring

G         C         Dm   C7                F                   G,F,G
But I most need the rose when the bitter winds call

C     Dm  C                 G
October roses are the fairest of all,

C     Dm  C                 G7         C
October roses are the fairest of all.
