VIOLET AND A ROSE (Mel Tillis / Bud Auge / John Reinfield) Webb Pierce - 1959 Skeeter Davis - 1962 Little Jimmy Dickens - 1962 Porter Wagoner - 1962 Jim & Jesse - 1963 Jean Shepard - 1964 Wanda Jackson - 1965 George Morgan - 1965 Mel Tillis - 1966 Pam Tillis - 2002 A violet fell in love with a rose And started it blushing from its head to its toes Then one day the rose was kissed by the dew A new love was born and the violet turned blue Roses are red, violets are blue I'm sending red, red roses to you If you care to send some flowers to me Then send me some violets, I'm blue as can be (Instrumental Break) I wanted my love to bouquet with you But just like the rose, you've proven untrue A flower that's wild they say has no home And just like the violet I'm left all alone Roses are red, violets are blue I'm sending red, red roses to you If you care to send some flowers to me Then send me some violets, I'm blue as can be Then send me some violets, I'm blue as can be (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2011)
