Merle Haggard (I'm Gonna Paint Me) A Bed Of Roses Lyrics

Last updated: 06/21/2012 12:00:00 PM

In our bedroom there's a portrait done in different shades of gray
That I painted out before you broke my heart
In the scatch we're arm in arm but in the background there's a storm
And it soon become and tear my world apart.

And before my days are over I'm gonna try my hand again
Do a portrait like I wanted life to be
Put some flowers on the ground and color springtime all around
And paint the bed of roses just for me.

I'm gonna paint me a bed of roses
One without one single cloud in a big blue sky
Yeah I'm gonna paint me a bed of roses
Where love and patience never die...
