Rosie Shy:Jesse Winchester CAPO 3 A D I was taken with a younger thing A E Known to me as Rosie Shy A D She had bells of brass to ring-a-ding A E And danced to please your eyes D A It seems like lovely Rosie Shy D A She shrank from my caress D A I think I'm dying from Rosie Shy D A Cause my heart can't get no rest D A No my heart can't get no rest D And I can't find grace E A In the human face today. A D Reborn with a baby ear A E I'm singing with Rosie Shy A D Far away she looks so real A E But up close she looks so high D A I had a dream about Rosie Shy D A And my dream did come true D A And every step away from Rosie Shy D A That's a terrible thing to do D A A terrible thing to do D And I can't find grace E A In the human face today. A D Sunny breakfast, in the Winter time A E Coffee with Rosie Shy A D To play or not was on her mind A E But to love was in her eyes D A And where was I with Rosie Shy D A And was I ever on her mind D A And if I can't have my Rosie Shy D A Then I'd choose to remain blind D A Yes, I'd choose to remain blind D And refuse to find grace E A In the human face today. A D Is there such a thing as all the time A E Even when it's Rosie Shy? A D And even lyrics that cannot rhyme A E They often do apply D A I wish the visions of Rosie Shy D A Would come back like my dreams D A Well, maybe they just signify D A A talking, nothing thing D A A talking, nothing thing D And I can't find grace E A In the human face today.
