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
    F                C               
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
                 F         C     
Mother's day has turned to night
         F                  C             
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
    F                   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
