Rose Colored Glasses Chords
Demo Lyrics & Pdf

This was a big song for John Conley that he co-wrote with George Barber. When it hit the airwaves back in April 1978 the song peaked at #5 in the US and #6 in Canada. It was Conley's first song to hit the country charts

Here are the chords you'll need for this song:

  • G
  • C
  • D
  • D7 (optional)

This song has a simple root down up down up root down up down up rhythm pattern. Towards the end of the song where I stop, you can use a shuffle strum combined with a bass run to led you back into the chorus.

But because of the way the chords change, it doesn't lend itself to using bass notes in the strumming, but bass runs do fit well, so use those as you see me doing here in the demo.

The is no main picking break in this song but you can use a little melody into pattern to get this one off the ground as you'll see here in the demo.


Rose Colored Glasses Lyrics


I don't know why I keep on believing you need me
When you've proved so many times that it ain't true
And I can't find one good reason for staying
Maybe by leaving would be the best for you

But these rose colored glasses - That I'm looking through
Show only the beauty - 'Cause they hide all the truth

And they let me hold on to the good times, good lines
The ones I used to hear when I held you
And they keep me from feeling so cheated, defeated
When reflections in your eyes show me a fool

But these rose colored glasses - That I'm looking through
Show only the beauty - 'Cause they hide all the truth

So I just keep on hopin', believing
That maybe by counting the many times, I've tried
You'll believe me when I say, I love you
And I'll lay these rose colored glasses aside

But these rose colored glasses - That I'm looking through
Show only the beauty - 'Cause they hide all the truth

Thanks for stopping by this Rose Colored Glasses chords page and I hope you found the info here somewhat helpful and useful.
