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.
