Flowers for Mama  George Jones

Flowers For Mama: George Jones
Chorded by Gary W, 20Aug07
Note: each / is a basic strum.
Intro: [E]/// /// [B7]/// [E]/// ///
[E] Papa brought flowers for [A] mama to-[E]-day ///
And all the grown children, but it's [F#] not mother's [B7] day /// ///
I [E] don't have no money, not [A] even a [E] dime ///
But I brought mama flowers like I [B7] have all the [E] time /// ///
[E] Everyday I pick flowers from [A] this pretty [E] hill ///
A small box of Daisies and a [F#] few Daffo-[B7]-dils /// ///
I [E] bring them to mama at the [A] end of the [E] day ///
And say flowers for mama, here's [B7] mama's bou-[E]-quet /// ///
[E] They brighten her face and she'd [A] hold me [E] close ///
She'd say they were more precious than a [F#] beautiful [B7] rose /// ///
And she [E] wore a smile sweeter than [A] millions of [E] flowers ///
A smile that I'll carry through [B7] lifes darkest [E] hours /// ///
NOTE: The background music follows normal verse pattern.
I put strum pattern below. The best way to get the spoken part
is to practise along with the recording.
"Now mama was lying there, yes, they tell me she passed away.
And she was surrounded by flowers that outshined my bouquet.
I know mine aren't fancy, but still all the while,
they were placed in her hand and I know I saw mama smile."
[E]/// /// [A]/// [E]/// /// /// [F#]/// [B7]///
[E]/// /// [A]/// [E]/// /// /// [B7]/// [E]/// ///
[A] Flowers for mama I [E] picked them today ///
Not very much, just a [F#] simple bou-[B7]-quet /// ///
[E] Mom wasn't so fancy, but [A] up there a-[E]-bove ///
She's the prettiest flower in God's [B7] garden of [E] love ////
