Sweeter Than the Flowers  Johnny Cash

This song features on Johnny Cash: The Mercury Years, and I imagine the same recording
be found elsewhere too. It's a great song, but I couldn't find the chords for it
by anyone. It is credited to Mann/Rouse/Burns, but this recording is Johnny Cash featuring Waylon Jennings.
I figured out the chords by ear, so they might be a little inaccurate in places, but I'm
you'll get the gist of it all.
[A]Just as far as I can [D]remem[A]ber
She'll remain the [E]rose of my [A]heart
[A]Mum fell sick [D]along in D[A]ecember
February b[E]rought 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 fo[A]rget the hours
you?re the dearest one mum
And swee[D]ter than the flo[E]wers
[D]Oh no there's no use to [A]bother
To speak of you now
[D]would only hurt [E]Father
[D]Oh no momma we'll [A]never forget you
[D]And someday we'll [E]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
Oh no I can't forget the hours your the only one Momma
And sweeter than the flowers
Oh no there's no use to bother
To speak of you now would only hurt Father
Oh no momma we'll never forget you
And someday we'll meet you up there
