           A                         B7
The golden sun is ever gentle in the valley of making
               E                            A
Where itís the middle of the autumn when it isnít high spring
          A                       B7
There are men of many colours and women of all races
        E                      A
Wearing white, white linen and smiles on their faces

    | A / / / | B7/D# / / / | E / / / (ma7) | E7 / / / |
Blue rose

          A                            B7
There are roses round the edges of the grand property
           E                               A
The words Ďlabour ardour languorí, are its lovely trinity
             A                                    B7
And when you see just how they dress and how they speak and act too
                E                               A
Well all youíll want to do is dress up in their white linen too

     A                 B9/A              | E / / / (ma7) | E7 / / / |
Blue rose and drew the curtain back on the morning

                   F#m                  B7
And you said holly-hey and with a teary tilt, 
                    E        D      E
For you were rudely made and shoddy built
                          F#m                 B7
Between the thumb and the forefinger barefoot pressed
              E                        (ma7) E7
He hoists his trouser leg she lifts her dress

        A                            B7
O these men of many colours in their creamy white suits
           E                                   A
With their different coloured hands dig in the soil for the roots
       A                            B7
Of the dreamy conversation that the slender women make
        E                               A
As they sip from slender glasses by the vineyard lake

     A                 B9/A              | E / / / (ma7) | E7 / / / |
Blue rose and drew the curtain back on the morning
     A              B9/A                      E            E7     | A... / / | A... / / ||
Blue rose and every little thing was gilt and suffering no more

             B7             
If you could see the people laughing and not hear the sound it makes
          E                              A
You could keep the good opinion that the common voice takes
             B7
If you could see the people laughing and not hear the sound it makes, it goes

| E... / / | E7... / / | 

          A                               B7
Thereís a woman there among them who with red, red eyes
         E                              A
Says you havenít been a-working hard enough on your lies
           A                          B7
The golden sun is ever gentle and one lie follows another in
     E                          A
The only way to get there is by singing brother singing

          A                         B7
There are women of all races men in white, white linen
        E7                          A                           A
And the only way to get there is to sing, sister sing, sister sing

A            B9/A               | E / / / (ma7) | E7 / / / |
And draw the curtain back on the morning
     A              B9/A                      E           E7
Blue rose and every little thing was gilt and suffering no more, no more
     A                 B9/A                | E / / / (ma7) | E7 / / / |
Blue rose and drew the curtain back on the morning

          A...                           B7...
Where the wars were not for wearing, the ghettoes never got
        E...                            A...
To each lonely, lonely person their own shovel, their own plot

         A...                       B7...
Have you ever heard a rattle way on down when people sigh,
       E...                              A...
Way on down the silly rattle says youíre happy when you die
