Give Me The Roses While I Live Recorded by Jimmy Martin Written by R.H. Cornelius and James Rowe
G Wonderful things of folks are said D7 G When they have passed away
Roses adorn the narrow bed D7 G Over the sleeping clay
C G Give me the roses while I live D7 Trying to cheer me on G Useless are flowers that you give D7 G After the soul is gone
Praises are heard not by the dead D7 G Roses they cannot speak
Let us not wait till souls have fled D7 G Generous friends to be
Faults are forgiven when folks lie D7 G Cold in a narrow bed
Let us forgive them ere they die D7 G Now should the words be said
