[Intro] 

D   A   D   D7   G    D A   D Bm7   


[Part 1]
                     
E7                      A7                     D              
You know, all too soon seemly our children grow up 
                G           D                                           A7 
overnight. They get married; some of them go to college. 
D                                                                           A
They move away from home to New York and Chicago and 
                    D                                                  D7
other places. But the saddest thing about it is that they 
                                                               G
forget that they have a darling mother back home. So it is 
                                              D
I’m thinking about a young man who left and moved away          
    A                   D                          Bm7        
to Germany, and while he was there, he was critically 
         E7                                         A7
wounded so much so that the doctor said, “that he would 
                           D                               G
never walk again”. He had braces on his legs and another 
 D                                            A7   D
sad thing happen to that young man, He lost his mother. And 
      A             D                                                    D7
the family tried to get in touch with him but to no avail. And 
           G 
finally we see that young man standing with braces on his 
D                          A                            D                Bm7
legs before a fresh grave, with on faded rose in his hand. As 
                                                      E7                      A7
he began to drop the petals from the rose on that grave, he 
             D                          G
began to talk to his mother. These are some of the words he 
        D                            A7
was saying to his mother: 
        

[Verse 1]

D       A      D            D7                     G                 D A 
Petals from this faded roses momma, is all I have to give,
                    D Bm7             E7        A7                   D 
But momma I tried to give you flowers, every now and then.
 G          D                        D7
  Oh yes I did.


[Chorus]

G                      G7            D            A             D A            
If I had a million dollars, I’d line your grave with gold, but 
        D           Bm7     D                            E7                  
That wouldn’t wake you from your sleep, as eternal ages 
A7
grow. 


[Verse 2]

D            A     D    D7                      G          D A  
So petals from this faded rose, is all I have to give. But 
               D Bm7              E7     A7              D       G
momma I tried to make you happy, while you lived. (While
      D
you lived)


[Part 2]

G                                             D                A
You know while that young man stood there, dropping the 
D                          A     D                          D7
petals on the fresh grave, two of his sisters drove up in a big 
          G                                                   
fine car, they got out and they put their arm about his 
 D           A                                                         D            
shoulder. One of his sisters said “Brother don’t cry, said you 
                             Bm7                                  E7
know we did all we could to get in touch with you. But one 
        A7             D                                             G               
thing I did, I knew that you would be pleased with, I took 
                 D                                 A                D
my diamond ring and placed it, on momma’s finger and the 
                          D7                         
other sister said,” Brother, so do you remember that fur coat 
        G                  
that I had, I draped it about momma’s shoulders, but the 
  D                                    A           
young man standing there crying, couldn’t think about 
 D                     Bm7                                              E7
diamonds and furs. All he could think of was the best thing 
                 A7                                       D                                
he had was gone, and with the few more petals left on the 
      G                     D
rose, he continue to drop them on the grave and he said to 
A7
his mother:


[Verse 3]

D                 A       D7                             G              
Diamond rings and silver things momma, I never had, I
         D            A                      D Bm7                 E7             
never had to give, but momma I tried to give you a flower 
A7     D                     G            D                  D7
every now and then. (Now and then) Yes I did.


[Chorus]

G                      G7            D            A             D    A         
If I had a million dollars, I’d line your grave with gold, but
        D          Bm7   D                               E7              
That wouldn’t wake you from your sleep, as eternal ages 
A7
grow. 


[Ending Verse]

D                 A       D      D7         G               D A 
So petals from this faded roses is all I have to give, but 
              D Bm7               E7     A7             D
momma I tried to make you happy, while you lived. 
                                           G             D
(Back Ground singers repeat (While you live.))
