about

A classic country song which has a sad story that many people have experienced. In June wild white roses grow in my garden and they gave me the idea to write this song about real life events that had happened to a friend.

lyrics

White Roses

They were married on a classic summers day
She was such a picture with her white rose bouquet
A pure union committed between a bride and groom
Why were those thorns not removed?

White roses in June
Wild Beauty and sweetest perfume
Wishing they would, forever bloom
White Roses in June

Built a house, had 2 kids, and was good to his wife
But the roses grew wild and unbridled
Then she left him for a man on the dark side of town
So he cursed that bush and chopped it down

White roses in June
Wild Beauty and sweetest perfume
Wishing they would, forever bloom
White Roses in June

In the church those flowers they covered his rest
Sad aroma in the air, a fillin' people's heads
And at those pearly gates he could smile once more
Met a fragrant embrace as he had, years before

White roses in June
Wild Beauty and sweetest perfume
Now then for him they'll always bloom
White Roses in June
Now then for him they'll always bloom
White Roses in June
