Rose Of Jericho

	  		
Intro: G 

verse 1 

He sits still, legs crossed  

At the kitchen table, only lost  
       C 
In his gin and tonic and the smell  

Of afternoon cigarettes 


verse 2 
      G 
She’s mastering the way she dances  

In between sideway glances  
C 
Words that would come in vivid colours  
                                     G 
If she let them slip off of her lips  


verse 3 

Generations handed down   

Blame the pain on times they live in 
  C 
A modern version of his father now  

Wasting all these chances life will give him 


verse 4 
    G 
But in her way she’s done one better 

Coats are made for winter weather 
C 
Neighbour kids play in the street  
                                       G       Am 
The sun sinks down below the back yard trees 

tabchorus
C There’s a cross on the side of the road G D Am Reflecting itself in car a window C And where does love really go G D Maybe no one knows, no one knows Em But somewhere stuck inside C It’s too proud to die G The rose of Jericho

Verse 5 Falling into old routines That history deems worth repeating C Prayers that seem to say themselves Self-help books on dusty shelves Verse 6 G If everything is temporary Why should they care how it shines? C The simple truth in looks deceiving G Am Are the blessings in disguise
tabchorus
C There’s a picture they took long ago G D Am In a white dress and black tuxedo C And where does love really go G D Maybe no one knows, maybe no one knows Em But somewhere stuck inside C It’s too proud to die G D The rose of Jericho
tab
Bridge C The Rose of Jericho sits on a shelf G D Waiting to be watered by somebody else C But it can’t love you without a little help G D 'Cause it don’t know how to love itself Verse 7 G Moonlight reaches bedroom windows High above the town below C You can’t always count on rain G To water what you need to grow
