Sweeter Than The Flowers
recorded by George Jones and Gene Pitney   [3/4 time]
written by Ervin T. Rouse and Lois Mann

Just as far as I can remember
         G7                  C
She'll remain the rose of my heart

Mom took sick along in December
     G7                    C
February brought us broken hearts

The reason we've not called the family reunion
        G7                   C
We knew that she wouldn't be there

But since we've thought it all over mama
   G7                       C
We know that your spirit is there

No no I can't forget the hours
You're the onliest one mom
And sweeter than the flowers

No no there's no need to bother
       C                   F
It's because you now would only hurt father

It looks so good to see us together
      G7                C
But I had to look after dad

Oh mama when I passed by your coffin
  G7                          C
I didn't want to remember you dead

They all gathered round I stared at their faces
          G7                C
All heads were bowed mighty low

But that was one time we all had to face it
   G7                 C
It hurt us so bad you know                  

Repeat #2
Oh no momma we'll never forget you
    G7                        C
And someday we'll meet you up there
