Today I got a long letter
From one who still cares for me
She asked lots of questions like would I call her sometime
And was I gettin' back on my feet

She asked if I had quit drinkin'
Like I promised her long ago
The words wouldn't come when I called and she answered
Oh, but I found a way to say no

I sent her some wine colored roses
The color of grapes on the vine
When she sees the wine colored roses
They'll tell her I'm still on the wine

The roses will say, I still love her
And their color will cause her to cry
One dozen reasons to tell her I'm sorry
And twelve pretty flowers don't lie

I sent her some wine colored roses
The color of grapes on the vine
When she sees the wine colored roses
They'll tell her I'm still on the wine
I sent her some wine colored roses
