A GOOD YEAR FOR THE ROSES (Jerry Chesnut) George Jones - 1971 Elvis Costello - 1981 Lorrie Morgan & Sammy Kershaw - 1994 Alan Jackson & George Jones - 1994 Also recorded by: Johnny Paycheck; Miki & Griff; Dino Lee. I can hardly bear the sight of lipstick On the cigarettes there in the ashtray Lyin' cold the way you left'em But at least your lips caressed them while you packed And a lip print on a half-filled cup of coffee That I poured and didn't drink But at least you thought you wanted it And that's so much more then I can say for me It's been a good year for the roses And many blooms still linger there The lawn could stand another mowin' Funny,I don't even care And when you turn to walk away As the door behind you closes The only thing I know to say It's been a good year for the roses After three full years of marriage It's the first time that I haven't made the bed I guess the reason we're not talkin' There's so little left to say,we haven't said And while a million thoughts go racin' through my mind I find I haven't spoke a word And from the bedroom,the familiar sounds Of our one baby's cryin' goes unheard But what a good year for the roses And may blooms still linger there The lawn could stand another mowin' Funny,I don't care And when you turn to walk away As the door behind you closes The only thing I know to say It's been a good year for the roses The only thing I know to say It's been a good year for the roses (Contributed by - January 2007)
