2 DOZEN ROSES
Shenandoah
(Byrne/McAnally)
CD: The Road Not Taken
1989 Columbia Records

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Note: This is just an updated version. The previous version was partially correct. 
I added in the key change, and cleaned up the intro. Not trying to step on any
toes. This song can be played with two guitars. One doing lead (No Capo), and 
one on rhythm (Capo 2nd Fret). Enjoy!

If I (Em) really could've (D) hung the (C) moon, would it (D) change your (G) mind?                 
If I could (C) cry a (D) little (Em) harder, and get a (C) little less (D) sleep at (G) night,

i'm pretty sure the lyrics go "...and an older bottle of wine..." i think the inference is that he only has one dozen roses and a "young" bottle...of course its open to interpretation...you also left the intro chords out and i dont hear the key change at the end, feel free to correct me if i'm wrong

If you own the CD "That Road Not Taken"
(which has the original recording),
the song is in the key of A. At the end of
the song , it changes to B. If you own the CD,
"Now And Then" (which is their Greatest Hits),
you'll notice that they recorded it in a different
key. It is in the key of Bb, and then changes to C,
at the end. I am 100% sure of this.

the version i have is in the key of A and it does not change at the end of the song. i also downloaded as many songs as i could off of kazaa and none of them changed key either, is the version you have on axehappy's ftp?
-saleen9899 | 8/5/2003
I have 2 versions of the song. The original
version (with the change), is on the CD
"The Road Not Taken". It was released in
1989, and has "See If I Care" and "Church
On Cumberland Road". The change is very
subtle, but I assure you that it's there.

hey,
ive been playing guitar for about 4 months, and im completely tone deaf, so i cant figure out the solo in there. could you, or someone who reads this add the tabs for the solo?

The lyric is "an old bottle of wine" in regards to a romantic gesture. And the key change is subtle but its there. However, they don't change keys when they preform it live.

Just to add to this decade old comment argument, every recorded version I have ever found starts in the key of A and ends in B. The original version off "The Road Not Taken" is slower, but still starts in the key of A. I'm not sure where you came up with Bb
