Intro story part 1: D   A   D   D7   G   D—A    D—Bm7                        
E7                      A7                     D              
You know, all too soon seemly our children grow up 
                G           D                                           A7 
overnight. They get married; some of them go to college. 
D                                                                           A
They move away from home to New York and Chicago and 
                    D                                                  D7
other places. But the saddest thing about it is that they 
                                                               G
forget that they have a darling mother back home. So it is 
                                              D
I’m thinking about a young man who left and moved away          
    A                   D                          Bm7        
to Germany, and while he was there, he was critically 
         E7                                         A7
wounded so much so that the doctor said, “that he would 
                           D                               G
never walk again”. He had braces on his legs and another 
 D                                            A7   D
sad thing happen to that young man, He lost his mother. And 
      A             D                                                    D7
the family tried to get in touch with him but to no avail. And 
           G 
finally we see that young man standing with braces on his 
D                          A                            D                Bm7
legs before a fresh grave, with on faded rose in his hand. As 
                                                      E7                      A7
he began to drop the petals from the rose on that grave, he 
             D                          G
began to talk to his mother. These are some of the words he 
        D                            A7
was saying to his mother: 
	
Verse 1:
D       A      D            D7                     G                 D—A 
Petals from this faded roses momma, is all I have to give,
                    D—Bm7             E7        A7                   D 
But momma I tried to give you flowers, every now and then.
                                            G          D                        D7
(Back ground chorus repeats (now and then)) Oh yes I did.

CHORUS:
G                      G7            D            A             D—A            
If I had a million dollars, I’d line your grave with gold, but 
        D           Bm7     D                            E7                  
That wouldn’t wake you from your sleep, as eternal ages 
A7
grow. 

Verse 2:
D            A     D    D7                      G          D-A  
So petals from this faded rose, is all I have to give. But 
               D—Bm7              E7     A7              D       G
momma I tried to make you happy, while you lived. (While
      D
you lived)




Intro story part 2:

You know while that young man stood there, dropping the 

petals on the fresh grave, two of his sisters drove up in a big 

fine car, they got out and they put their arm about his 

shoulder. One of his sisters said “Brother don’t cry, said you 

know we did all we could to get in touch with you. But one 

thing I did, I knew that you would be pleased with, I took 

my diamond ring and placed it, on momma’s finger and the 

other sister said,” Brother, so do you remember that fur coat 

that I had, I draped it about momma’s shoulders, but the 

young man standing there crying, couldn’t think about 

diamonds and furs. All he could think of was the best thing 

he had was gone, and with the few more petals left on the 

rose, he continue to drop them on the grave and he said to 

his mother:



Verse 3:
D                 A       D7                             G              
Diamond rings and silver things momma, I never had, I
         D            A                      D-Bm7                 E7             
never had to give, but momma I tried to give you a flower 
A7     D                     G            D                  D7
every now and then. (Now and then) Yes I did.

CHORUS:
G                      G7            D            A             D           
If I had a million dollars, I’d line your grave with gold, but
                    Bm7   D                               E7              
That wouldn’t wake you from your sleep, as eternal ages 
A7
grow. 

Ending Verse:
D                   A     D7                   G             D—A 
So petals from this faded roses is all I have to give, but 
              D—Bm7               E7     A7             D
momma I tried to make you happy, while you lived. 
                                           G             D
(Back Ground singers repeat (While you live.))
