Kitty Wells — Sweeter Than The Flowers lyrics

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 heart.

The reason we've not called the family reunion
We knew that she wouldn't be there
But since we've thought it all over mama
We know that your spirit is there.

No, no, I can't forget the hours
You're the only one mom and sweeter than the flowers
No, no, there's no need to bother
Because without you now would only hurt father.

Oh, no mama, we'll never forget you
And someday we'll meet you up there.

You looked so sweet we all were together
Brother and I close to dad
Oh 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.

No, no, I can't forget the hours
You're the only one mom and sweeter than the flowers
No, no, there's no need to bother
Because without you now would only hurt father.

Oh, no mama, we'll never forget you
And someday we'll meet you up there...
