I messed up in a couple of spots when I was adding all the chords to the various verses etc. Here's a corrected version:

[D] [Bm] [F#m] [G]
[D] [Bm] [F#m] [G]

Well the [D]whole town came out to watch, the [Bm]day the paved the parking lot
[F#m]somebody put a ribbon up, and [G]then they cut it down
and that [D]big white rose up on that sign, was the [Bm]innocence in all our lives
and [F#m]you could see it’s neon lights from [G]half a mile out

gas was [D]fifty cents a gallon, and they’d [Bm]put it in for you
and they’d [F#m]pump your tires and check your oil and [G]wash your windows too
and we’d [D]shine those cars as bright as bright, and [Bm]we’d go park underneath that light
and [F#m]stare out at the prairie sky, there was [G]nothing else to do

{c: refrain:}
but now there’s [Bm]plywood for glass, where the [F#m]windows all got smashed
and there’s [G]just a chunk of concrete where those [A]old pumps used to stand
there’s a [Bm]couple of cars half out of the ground, and that [F#m]oil sign still spins round and round
but [G]I guess the white rose filling station is just a [A]memory [Bm]now

and the [D]girls would spend a couple of bucks, just to [Bm]meet the boys working at the pumps
and [F#M]they’d grow up and fall in love and [G]they’d all move away
[D]strangers used to stop and ask, how [Bm]far they’d driven off the map
but [F#Mthen they built that overpass, and now they ]G[stay out on the highway

{c: refrain:}
but now there’s ]Bm[plywood for glass, where the ]F#m[windows all got smashed
and there’s ]G[just a chunk of concrete where those ]A[old pumps used to stand
there’s a ]Bm[couple of cars half out of the ground, and that ]F#m[oil sign still spins round and round
but ]G[I guess the white rose filling station is just a ]A[memory ]Bm[now

and that ]G[neon sign was the heart and soul of ]D[this old one horse town
and it’s ]A[like it lost its will to live, the ]G[day they shut it down

{c: refrain:}
but now there’s ]Bm[plywood for glass, where the ]F#m[windows all got smashed
and there’s ]G[just a chunk of concrete where those ]A[old pumps used to stand
there’s a ]Bm[couple of cars half out of the ground, and that ]F#m[oil sign still spins round and round
but ]G[I guess the white rose filling station is just a ]A[memory ]Bm[now

but ]G[I guess the white rose filling station is just a ]A[memory ]Bm[now

Hmm. I wonder why some of those square brackets are backwards? They're not in my file.

Hi Charles - I have no idea what happened with some of those square brackets! I've copied and pasted the music in your comment above, into a Word document, fixed the brackets and repasted it into the text box.

Thanks for the GREAT song Charles! My dad used to work for White Rose :)

In the 4th paragraph I did change the [F#M] to an [F#m] - I figured that was just a typo.
