Ive Just Told Mama Goodbye

Song Author Curley Kinsey og Slim Sweet Performer: Hank Williams Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]Each year on [G7]mother's [C]day  
The rose I [F]wore was [C]red  
But [F]today I'm saying [C]my first prayer
Mama's lying on [G7]her dying [C]bed  

I've just told [G7]mama good[C]bye  
Mother's day has [F]turned to [C]night
Like the [F]flowers in May she [C]withered away
And my red rose is [G7]turning [C]white

This is the [G7]dreaded [C]hour
We all must [F]face some[C]day  
Yet [F]there's consolation [C]in my heart
She will bloom in the [G7]master's [C]bouquet

Her time has [G7]come to [C]go  
And there's nothing [F]I can [C]do  
Only [F]hold her hand and [C]say goodbye
Mama's day with her [G7]children is [C]through

I've just told [G7]mama good[C]bye  
And knelt be[F]side her [C]bed  
I [F]heard her say I'll [C]meet you someday
Where the white roses [G7]turn to [C]red  

Each year on mother's day
The rose I wore was red
But today I'm saying my first prayer
Mama's lying on her dying bed

I've just told mama goodbye
Mother's day has turned to night
Like the flowers in May she withered away
And my red rose is turning white

This is the dreaded hour
We all must face someday
Yet there's consolation in my heart
She will bloom in the master's bouquet

Her time has come to go
And there's nothing I can do
Only hold her hand and say goodbye
Mama's day with her children is through

I've just told mama goodbye
And knelt beside her bed
I heard her say I'll meet you someday
Where the white roses turn to red
