(i'm Gonna Paint Me A) Bed Of Roses Lyrics

by Merle Haggard

In our bedroom there's a portrait done in different shades of gray
That I penciled out before you broke my heart
In the sketch we're arm in arm but in the background there's a storm
It was soon to come and tear my world apart

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

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