A Good Year For The Roses 
By Alan Jackson (with George Jones)
Tabbed By Larry Mofle

      A                                            D           A 
I can hardly bear the sight of lipstick on the cigarettes there in the ashtray
      A                                                   D          A
Lyin' cold the way you left them but at least your lips caressed them while you packed
      D                                                            A
And a lip print on a half-filled cup of coffee that you poured and didn't drink
       E                                                                          A 
But at least you thought you wanted it an' that's so much more than I can say for me

But what a good year for the roses
E                 A
Many blooms still linger there
The lawn could stand another mowin'
E                        A
Itís funny, I don't even care
When you turned and walked away
E                          D  A
And as the door behind you closes
The only thing I know to say
E                             A D   Bm D A
It's been a good year for the roses

After three full years of marriage it's the first time that you haven't made the bed
I guess the reason we're not talkin': there's so little left to say, we haven't said
An' while a million thoughts go runnin' through my mind, I find I haven't spoke a word
And from the bedroom, the familiar sound of our one baby's cryin', goes unheard
