I've Just Told Mama Goodbye Recorded by Hank Williams written by Curley Kinsey and Slim Sweet
C G7 C Each year on mother's day F C The rose I wore was red
But today I'm saying my first prayer
G7 C Mama's lying on her dying bed
G7 C I've just told mama goodbye
C Mother's day has turned to night
Like the flowers in May she withered away
G7 C And my red rose is turning white
G7 C This is the dreaded hour F C We all must face someday
C Yet there's consolation in my heart
G7 C She will bloom in the master's bouquet
G7 C Her time has come to go
F C And there's nothing I can do F C Only hold her hand and say goodbye
G7 C Mama's day with her children is through
G7 C I've just told mama goodbye F C And knelt beside her bed F C I heard her say I'll meet you someday
G7 C Where the white roses turn to red
