Wild Irish Rose
George Jones
Album: It Don't Get Better Than This (1998)

A                         D         A
They sent him to Asia to fight in a war
     D              A         E7
He came back home crazy and asking what for
      A                     D         A
They had him committed oh medals and all
      D        A      E7          A
To a mental hospital with rubber walls

A                                 D            A
They cut off the funding oh they cut off the lights
    D               A           E7
He hit the street running that cold winter night
           A                       D            A
Now the streets are the only place he can call home
     D           A         E7          A   E
He seems oh so lonely but he's never alone 

A               C#         D          A
He lies there holding his Wild Irish Rose
       D        A            E7
This crazy old fool in the smelly old clothes
    A              C#             F#m        D
He could have had something much better God knows
        A          F#m       E7         A
Than a half empty bottle of Wild Irish Rose

A                           D            A
A baby named Scarlet with laughing blue eyes
 D                A        E7
Has been in his wallet ah way back since '65
    A                    D               A
So much was forgotten oh so far back in time
     D           A           E7       A
Way down in the bottom of a river of wine

A                                 D          A
You know they found him at Clarksville West 25th
 D                       A                   E7
They can't even find a heartbeat Lord, his fingers are so stiff
 A                            D                A
Just like they're all frozen he's holding her tight 
         D              A             E7          A    E
But the habit oh it's broken this is Roses' last night

A               C#         D          A
He lies there holding his Wild Irish Rose
         D           A             E7
But his soul's in a place where a real hero goes
     A                  C#          F#m        D
Now he's got something better much better God knows
        A          F#m       E7        D     A
Than a half empty bottle of Wild Irish R-o-s-e


Outro: (Use same cord progression as the verse)
