Monday Music Quote: Kenny and Luther


Monday Music Quote: Piano Diana Blog

Don't be afraid to give up the good for the great.
Kenny Rogers 

I'd like to be remembered as a premier singer of songs, not just a popular act of a given period.
Luther Vandross


Buy Me A Rose

Verse 1:
D                A               G                  A
He works hard to give her all he thinks she wants
D                 A               G            A
Three car garage, her own credit cards
   G                A           D               G
He pulls in late to wake her up with a kiss goodnight
G                D                   A
If he could only read her mind she'd say


Chorus:
A        D                  Bm
Buy me a rose, call me from work
       G                         A
Open a door for me what would it hurt
            D                            G
Show me you love me by that look in your eye
D                    A                            D
These are the little things I need the most in my life


Verse 2:
D                A               G                  A
Now the days have grown to years of feeling all alone
D                 A               G            A
She can't help but wonder what she's doing wrong
   G                A           D               G
Lately she'd try anything to turn his head
G                D                   A
Would it make a difference if she'd said

Chorus

Bridge/Verse 3:
        G                       A 	 
And the more that he lives, the less that he tries
   G                      A
To show her the love that he holds inside
        G                        A
And the more that she gives, the more that he sees
G                          A
This is a story of you and me
     A            D                         Bm
So I bought you a rose on the way home from work
            G                      A
To open the door to a heart that I hurt
               D                       G 
And I hope you noticed this look in my eye
D                           A                          D
Cause I'm gonna make things right for the rest of your life
D                A
The rest of your life
    G
And I'm gonna hold you tonight
D                    A                           D
Do all those little things for the rest of your life
