    Lynn ANDERSON - rose garden
    I never promised you a rose garden
    Along with the sunshine
    There's gotta be a little rain some time

    "Rose Garden" (also known and covered as "(I Never Promised You A) Rose Garden") is a song written by Joe South, that is best known as recorded by country singer Lynn Anderson. Her October 1970 release topped the U.S. Billboard country chart for five weeks, reached the No. 3 spot on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 pop chart and hit number one on both Cash Box's and Record World's pop and country singles charts. The song was also a major pop hit internationally, topping the charts in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Ireland and Norway and hitting the top three in the United Kingdom. Anderson's version of "Rose Garden" remains one of the most successful country crossover recordings of all-time.

    I beg your pardon
    I never promised you a rose garden
    Along with the sunshine
    There's gotta be a little rain some time
    When you take you gotta give so live and let live
    Or let go oh-whoa-whoa-whoa
    I beg your pardon
    I never promised you a rose garden
    I could promise you things like big diamond rings
    But you don't find roses growin' on stalks of clover
    So you better think it over
    Well if sweet-talkin' you could make it come true
    I would give you the world right now on a silver platter
    But what would it matter
    So smile for a while and let's be jolly
    Love shouldn't be so melancholy
    Come along and share the good times while we can
    I beg your pardon
    I never promised you a rose garden
    Along with the sunshine
    There's gotta be a little rain some time
    I beg your pardon
    I never promised you a rose garden
    I could sing you a tune and promise you the moon
    But if that's what it takes to hold you
    I'd just as soon let you go
    But there's one thing I want you to know
    You better look before you leap, still waters run deep
    And there won't always be someone there to pull you out
    And you know what I'm talkin' about
    So smile for a while and let's be jolly
    Love shouldn't be so melancholy
    Come along and share the good times while we can
    I beg your pardon
    I never promised you a rose garden
    Along with the sunshine
    There's gotta be a little rain some time
