     A POOR MAN'S ROSES (OR A RICH MAN'S GOLD)      Patsy Cline

Intro chords   E  G#m  F#  B
                    B
I must make up my mind today
B
What to have what to hold
B  Bb   G#m  F#   E  F#               B   B E F#   
A poor man's ros-es or a rich man's gold
                        B
One's as wealthy as a king in a palace
B
Though he's callused and cold
B   Bb       G#m           F#        E  
He may learn to give his heart for love
  F#                        B  E  B
Instead of buying it with gold
                      E    F#                     B      
Then the poor man's roses and the thrill when we kiss
            G#m         G           E          F#
Wilt the memories of paradise that I'll never miss
                                  B 
And yet the hand that brings the rose tonight
 B                     
Is the hand that I will hold
B    Bb     G#m             F#    E 
What a rose of love means more to me
F#                         B   E  B   
More than any rich man's gold         lead
                      E    F#                     B 
Then the poor man's roses and the thrill when we kiss
            G#m         G           E          F#
Wilt the memories of paradise that I'll never miss
                                  B 
And yet the hand that brings the rose tonight
 B                     
Is the hand that I will hold
B    Bb     G#m             F#    E 
What a rose of love means more to me
F#                         B   E  B  open B 
More than any rich man's gold
