G                     D                   C       
Rain came down on the tin roof   hardly a sound was left  
         D               C                   D                    G       D 
from the birthday    the kitchen light fell asleep on the bedroom floor 
G               D                C                   D 
Me and her were talking softer   than all the time before I lost her 
    C              D                   G 
her picture sat on top of the chest-of-drawers 
         C       D           G       C                   G         D     Db   
CHORUS:  ONE RED ROSE IN THE BIBLE   PRESSED BETWEEN THE HOLY ALPHABET 
C                 D                   G                    C 
PROBABLY WOULDN'T BELIEVE YOU  IF YOU TOLD ME   BUT WHAT I NEVER KNEW 
  D          G        C 
I NEVER WILL FORGET 
G                     D            C                          D 
Rainy nights get dark real early   her dress was soft and her hair was curly 
   C                 D                G    D  G                 D  
we danced around the table to the old banjo   rainy nights were made for lovers 
C                  D                        C       D                    G 
we lay there still beneath the covers   and I ain't never felt like that before 
 
REPEAT CHORUS: 
 
INSTRUMENTAL: verse chords 
 
REPEAT CHORUS ONCE MORE: 
 
For the D Db C in the Chorus I alternate by using a D chord then the Db sliding the 
same formation down 1 fret twords the nut then the C chord. 
 
The second time I use a walk down by strumming the D chord then hit the d string (4th string) 
open then 5th string 4th fret the form the C chord and hit the 5th string 3rd fret not before 
playing the chord. 
 
Going from the Verse to Chorus I use a standard walk from the G chord to the C chord 
 
ANY SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.
