Snow on the Roses
(a country song)

Writen after seeing snow on Portland rose bushes.

When Yesterday roses
were blooming so free.
You picked a rose
and gave it to me
With it a promise
that we'd never part
Yesterday's roses
Laid soft on my heart.

Now you have changed dear
Icy winds blow
Your cold heart has turned
my sunshine to snow.
The roses have wilted.
Nothing is right
For there is snow on
the roses tonight

Snow on the roses
Snow in my heart
your letter discloses
From me you will part.
Yesterday's sunshine
has all gone away
and there's snow
on the roses today.
