                              THORNLESS ROSE

Words and Music-Joel B. Kirkpatrick, III
Copyright 1991
Key of D


THERE'S A ROSE OUT IN THE GARDEN
BACK WHERE ALMOST NO ONE GOES
ALL ALONE AND HALF FORGOTTEN
UNATTENDED STILL IT GROWS
THERE IS SOMETHING THAT I NOTICED
WALKING BY NOT LONG AGO
THAT THIS FLOWER OF UNMATCHED BEAUTY
WAS A PURE AND THORNLESS ROSE

     THORNLESS ROSE OUT IN THE GARDEN
     WAITING THERE ALL ALONE
     JUST HOW LONG SHE HAS BEEN WAITING
     ONLY SHE AND HEAVEN KNOWS
     NOW I THINK THAT I WILL GENTLY
     PICK HER UP AND TAKE HER HOME
     FOR I THINK THAT I HAVE FOUND MY ONE
     AND ONLY THORNLESS ROSE

AS YOU WANDER THROUGH THE GARDEN
LOOK AROUND AND YOU MIGHT SEE
GROWING THERE AMONG THE THISTLES
A ROSE OF RARE BEAUTY
PICK HER UP AND TAKE HER WITH YOU
FOR HEAVEN ONLY KNOWS
THAT AT LAST YOU MAY HAVE FOUND
YOUR ONE AND ONLY THORNLESS ROSE

     THORNLESS ROSE OUT IN THE GARDEN
     WAITING THERE ALL ALONE
     JUST HOW LONG SHE HAS BEEN WAITING
     ONLY SHE AND HEAVEN KNOWS
     NOW I THINK THAT I WILL GENTLY
     PICK HER UP AND TAKE HER HOME
     FOR I THINK THAT I HAVE FOUND MY ONE
     AND ONLY THORNLESS ROSE

     FOR I THINK THAT I HAVE FOUND MY ONE
     AND ONLY THORNLESS ROSE
