Yes, as far as I can remember She'll remain the rose of my heart Mom took sick along in December February brought us broken hearts The reason we've not called a family reunion We knew you 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 oldest one, Mom, and sweeter than the flowers Oh no, there's no need to bother To speak of you now would only hurt Father (Instrumental Break) Well it looked so good to see us together But I had to look after Dad Oh no, Mama, when 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 But 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 You're the oldest one, Mom, and sweeter than the flowers Oh no, there's no need to bother To speak of you now would only hurt Father Oh no, Mama, we'll never forget you And someday we'll meet you up there (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - September 2011)
