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.

OCTOBER ROSES
(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
 
 

CHORUS:

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.
