                Intro: G C D G C D G 
 
 
G  
Well, I had two weeks vacation comin', so I thought I'd drive down to 
C  
Florida: spend some time with an old friend, date a few girls, make a few 
D  
parties, and just kinda live it up again.  
                 G 
So I packed up my car, and then I called my Mom in Tennesee, and  
(D)                                     G 
told her what I planned to do. And  she said, "Son, are you comin' by? 
					   C 
And I said, "Mom, I'm really pushed for  time, but honey I'll see you in a week or two."  
                   D 
And I was drivin'  through this little town in Georgia, when I remembered: 
                       G 
today is Mama's birth--day. Well, I thought I'd just stop and wire some 
flowers. Shouldn't take too long; then I'd be on my way.  
                                              C 
So I walked in the flower shop and the first  thing I saw was this  
							     D 
little boy with his eyes full a' tears. And I said, "Son, (what's  
                                         G 
wrong?" He said, "Mama loves roses. And  today's her birthday, and I haven't seen her 
in almost a year."  

chorus:
G         C   D                G 
Roses for Mama, Today's her birth--day 
            C  D                 G 
Roses for Mama, Today's her birth--day

								C 
He said, "I live with Grandma now. But I promised Mama some  roses,  
						 D 
'causeI talk to her all the time. I wanted to  give her five, 'cause  
						     G	 
that's how old I am. But the lady said I couldn't  buy 'em for just a dime."  
 
D                                       G 
Well, the little fella's story kind a'  touched my heart, so I told 
								C 
the lady just give him what he wanted and charge it to me.  Well that's 
							   D	 
when I told her to wire a dozen roses to my Mama, up in Chapel Hill, 
Tennessee.  
						G 
I looked around, and the little boy was gone. But all of a sudden the 
door flew open and he came runnin' back in and he said, "Mister, I forgot to 
							         C 
thank you for the roses." He smiled and he shook my hand, and  ran back 
out again. 
  
                                 D 
Well, I started on out of town. And I was feelin' real proud of myself 
                                    G 
for thinkin' of my Mama and really  carin', when I looked my window 
 
D                   G 
and I saw that same little  boy, kneelin', by a grave in an old cemetery.  
                   C 
Well I stopped my  car and walked over to where the little boy was 
					    D 
kneelin' down. He smiled up at me and he  said, "This is where my Mama 
                               G 
stays. She says she sure does  thank you for these pretty roses." Well 
that's when I had to walk away.  
 
And I drove right back to that flower shop and I said, "Lady, have you sent those  
C  
flowers to Tennessee?" And she said, "No, not yet."  
D                                                      G 
And I said, "Well, just never mind. I'll just take em  back with me."  
 
Repeat Chorus
