Gene Watson - Paper Rosie

rate me

(Dallas Harms)

The sun goes down in Calvin county

Neon lights from an old beer sign

Shown through the window out on the sidewalk

As I walked in to pass the time

I looked around, sat down at a table

Ordered beef on rye and a glass of wine

And through the door came a little old lady

She was selling paper roses and they only cost a dime.

Paper Rosie, paper Rosie

She sold you paper Roses, but they only cost a dime.

Silver hair that's lost its' gold

Trembling hand as she passed the rose

Red crepe paper, made nature's bouquet

Help a little old lady buy a rose today

I took the rose from her trembing hand

With eyes of age, she smilled and walked away

Like a breath of spring I could smell the rose

It came alive and I heard her say.

Buy my Roses, pretty roses

They're only made of paper but they only cost a dime.

I went to look for her outside

A spray of roses lay by her side

The sky lit up and the choir sang

A thousand voices as the church bells rang.

They sang Rosie (Rosie), paper Rosie (Rosie)

She sold you paper Roses but they only cost a dime.

Paper Rosie (Rosie), paper Rosie (Rosie)

She sold you paper roses but they only cost a dime...
