Give Me My Flowers While I'm Living 
Recorded by Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs
Written by Louise Certain, Gladys Stacey, Elvin Bigger

C G7
In this world today while we're living
Some folks say the worst of us they can
But when we are dead and in our caskets
C G7 C
They always slip some lilies in your hand

Won't you give me my flowers while I'm living
And let me enjoy them while I can
Please don't wait till I'm ready to be buried
C G7 C
And then slip some lilies in my hand

In this world is where we need our flowers
A kind word to help us get along
If you can't give me flowers while I'm living
C G7 C
Then please don't throw them when I'm gone

Repeat #2
