[Through composed]
Red Rose out of the east tell the love I love least "Who knows?
Red rose out of the west Tell the love I love best
"Love is a rose" On ly a rose I give you only a song
Dy-ing a-way On-ly a smile To keep in mem-o-ry
Un-til we meet an-oth-er day on-ly a rose To-whis-per,
Blush-ing as ros-es do I'll bring a-long a smile
or a song for a-ny one On-ly a Rose for you.
