Sweeter Than The Flowers  Johnny Cash

[A]Just as far as[D] I can remem[A]ber
She\'ll [E]remain the rose of my [A]heart
[A]Mum fell sick [D]along in D[A]ecember
February [E]brought us broken [A]hearts
The reason we\'ve not called a family reunion
We knew that she wouldn\'t be there
But now that we\'ve thought it all over Mama
We know you\'re spirit is here

[D]No, no, I can\'t forget the hours
you�re the[A] dearest one mum
And swee[D]ter than the flowers
[D]Oh no there\'s no use to bother
To [A]speak of you now
would [D]only hurt Father
[A]Oh no momma we\'ll [A]never forget you
And [E]someday we\'ll meet you up th[A]ere

We all gathered round and I stared at their faces
All heads were bowed mighty low
But this was one time we all had to face it
Though it hurt us so badly you know

Well it felt so good for us to be together
But I had to look after dad
Oh no Mother when I passed by your casket
I didn\'t want to remember you dead
