Just as far as I can remember she'll remain the rose of my heart
Mom took sick along in December February brought us broken heart
The reason we've not called the family reunion we knew she wouldn't be there
But since we've thought it all over mama we know that your spirit is there

Oh no I can't forget the hours you're the onlyest mom and sweeter than the flowers
No no there's no need to bother cause without you now would only hurt father
Oh no mama we'll never forget you someday we'll meet you up there
[ harmonica ]
You looked so sweet we all were together brother and I close to dad
Oh mama as I passed by your coffin I didn't want to remember you dead
They all gathered round I stared at their faces all heads were bowed mighty low
That was one time we all had to face it though it hurt us so bad you know

Oh no I can't forget the hours...
