[Verse]
C            Em
When I was a boy
  F             G
I ran among the flowers
C                Am
Looking left and right
F              | G | % |
At the bright array
  C                  Em
I played through the spring
F               G
Whiled away the hours
C                 F             C     G7
Lingered with the flowers ev'ry day


[Chorus]
C               D7       G7
Flowers, pretty flowers, flowers
          C
Life's bouquet
C               D7       G7
Flowers, pretty flowers, flowers
          C
Along the way

[Interlude]
| C  Dmadd4/C | C Dmadd4/C C |
| Db Ebm | Fm Ebm |


[Verse]
     Db         Fm
When I became a man
  Gb              Ab
I felt the summer showers
Db                Bbm
When I learned to love
  Gb              Ab
I also learned to cry
Db             Fm
When I came to know
    Gb            Ab
The beauty of the flowers
Db                 Gb             Db   Ab7
I wondered why the flowers had to die


[Chorus]
Db              Eb7       Ab7
Flowers, pretty flowers, flowers
          Db
Life's bouquet
Db              Eb7      Ab7
Flowers, pretty flowers, flowers
          Db
Along the way


[Interlude]
| Db Ebm | Fm Ebm |
| D Em | F#m Em |


[Verse]
D               F#m
When the summer ends
        G                  A
And the storms of life are over
D               Bm
When the winter comes
        G            A
And the petals fall away
         D              F#m
They may write it on my stone
 G             A
“He was just a rover
       D                    G                 D     A7
But he stopped to pick some flowers along the way”


[Chorus] + coda
D               E7       A7
Flowers, pretty flowers, flowers
          D
Life's bouquet
D                  E7
Flowers, pick some flowers
 Em       A7  D       D#       | D | % | D
Alo-o-ong the wa-a-ay-a-a-ay-ay-ay
