            [Intro]
  G  AM C  D  G

[Verse]
          G
There's a rose bush in the garden
     AM
Been there since I was born
     C              D             G
That celebrates its age without fear
G        
I touch the velvet petals
    AM
And smell the breath of angels,e
    C               D           G
And pick the purple roses every year 
G                                               AM
Now you think you're passed your prime my sweet woman
     C                D       G
Your use-by date is faded and grey
G                                       AM
But sad and sorry thoughts like that my darlin'
   C               D      G
Is throwin' purple roses away 

[Play chords]
G  AM C  D  G

[Chorus]
   G                                   AM
You're tired of pretending that you're younger
    C            D               G
When gravity is real and here to stay
G                                         AM
So you wear your clothes more easily for comfort
     C              D       G
You used to be too skinny anyway 

[Verse]
     G
Now you're looking in the mirror
  AM
A picture of your Mother
    C               D           G
But you don't see the woman that I see
G                                        AM
Denying grace and pride the good Lord gave you
  C                D       G
Is throwin' purple roses away 
   G                                   AM
Yeah, sad and sorry thoughts like that my darlin'
   C                D       G
Is throwin' purple roses away
