"Wine Colored Roses" as written by Dennis J. Knutson and Arthur Leo Owens....
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
