The melody of "Lida Rose" can be played along with the song  "Will I Ever Tell You?" using the same chords as above.
Click hear for both songs played together.
Lida Rose, I'm home again, Rose to get the sun back in the sky.
Lida Rose, I'm home again, Rose about a thousand kisses shy.
Ding, dong, ding! I can hear the chapel bell chime.
Ding, dong, ding! At the least suggestion I'll pop the question.
Lida Rose, I'm home again, Rose without a sweetheart to my name.
Lida Rose, now everyone knows that I am hoping you're the same
So here is my love song, not fancy or fine.
Lida Rose, oh won't you be mine!  Lida Rose, Oh Lida Rose.
Lida Rose, Oh Lida Rose.
