Roses For Mama chords by Red Sovine

Red Sovine Chords

Intro: G C D G C D G 
Well, I had two weeks vacation comin', so I thought I'd drive down to 
Florida: spend some time with an old friend, date a few girls, make a few 
parties, and just kinda live it up again.  
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? 
And I said, "Mom, I'm really pushed for  time, but honey I'll see you in a week or two."  
And I was drivin'  through this little town in Georgia, when I remembered: 
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.  
So I walked in the flower shop and the first  thing I saw was this  
little boy with his eyes full a' tears. And I said, "Son, (what's  
wrong?" He said, "Mama loves roses. And  today's her birthday, and I haven't seen her 
in almost a year."  

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

He said, "I live with Grandma now. But I promised Mama some  roses,  
'causeI talk to her all the time. I wanted to  give her five, 'cause  
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 
the lady just give him what he wanted and charge it to me.  Well that's 
when I told her to wire a dozen roses to my Mama, up in Chapel Hill, 
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 
thank you for the roses." He smiled and he shook my hand, and  ran back 
out again. 
Well, I started on out of town. And I was feelin' real proud of myself 
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.  
Well I stopped my  car and walked over to where the little boy was 
kneelin' down. He smiled up at me and he  said, "This is where my Mama 
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  
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
