How about the chords to this song by Tommy Edwards first charted in 1951-52 and later charted as a reissue at #27 for 4 weeks. It debuted on the Top 40 on 3/23/59.

The part I am having trouble with is the key change at the bridge:

For love the rose...

There was a girl, there was a boy
If they had met they might have found a world of joy
But she lived on the morning side of the mountain
And he lived on the twilight side of the hill

They never met, they never kissed
And they will never know what happiness they missed
For she lived on the morning side of the mountain
And he lived on the twilight side of the hill

For love's a rose that never grows
Without the kiss of the morning dew
And every Jack must have a Jill
To know the thrill of a dream that comes true

And you and I are just like they
For all we know our love is just a kiss away
But you are on the morning side of the mountain
And I am on the twilight side of the hill

For love's a rose that never grows
Without the kiss of the morning dew
And every Jack must have a Jill
To know the thrill of a dream that comes true

And you and I are just like they
For all we know our love is just a kiss away
But you are on the morning side of the mountain
And I am on the twilight side of the hill

Thanks,
Cruiser (who has restarted playing his guitar after a 3-year hiatus because of work pressures and is also gathering the courage to pick up his fiddle again!).

Work sure gets in the way of the good life, don't it?

I'm not sure these are the right chords but it works for me. I believe he modulates (vocally--no chord) on the first line of the bridge to the key of F and to the key of G in the second line.


The Morning Side Of The Mountain

C            Dm    G7              C                              
There was a girl, there was a boy        
            Dm                        G7                     C C7

F                                             C    Am   
But she lived on the morning side of the mountain           
    C                    Dm                         C
And he lived on the twilight side of the hill

They never met, they never kissed           
And they will never know what happiness they missed
For she lived on the morning side of the mountain   
And he lived on the twilight side of the hill

(NC)            C7                      F                                
For love's a rose that never grows
