Second Handed Flowers

Höfundur lags: Tom T. Hall Flytjandi: George Jones Sent inn af: Anonymous

[C]I was working in Miami [F]for a day or [C]two  
[F]I decided [C]I'd look up a girl that I once [G7]knew   
[C]I bought some flowers and went to see a [F]girl I used to [C]know
[F]The lady at her [C]door said she had [G7]married long [C]ago  

Times will change and towns will change but [F]there I was [C]alone
[F]When suddenly [C]I wondered would Susie be at [G7]home   
[C]So with the flowers in my hand I [F]walked toward her [C]gate
[F]Someone touched me [C]on the arm and [G7]said you'll have to [C]wait

Then I noticed there were people [F]standing in a [C]line
[F]Some of them were [C]holding pretty flowers just like [G7]mine   
[C]They explained that Susie had [F]been in an awful [C]crash
[F]Doctors said that [C]she had just a [G7]little while to [C]last

When I walked into her room I [F]felt the sense of [C]shame
[F]But I heard Susie [C]whisper I'm awfully glad you [G7]came   
[C]She had been the girl that I had [F]always gone to [C]see  
[F]When someone that I [C]cared for [G7]had been untrue to [C]me  

I handed her the flowers and she [F]gently kissed my [C]hand
[F]She said don't be [C]embarrassed for you know I under[G7]stand
[C]I said goodbye and as I bent to [F]kiss her fevered [C]brow
[F]I heard her whisper [C]thank you for the [G7]second handed [C]flowers


I was working in Miami for a day or two

The lady at her door said she had married long ago

Times will change and towns will change but there I was alone
When suddenly I wondered would Susie be at home
So with the flowers in my hand I walked toward her gate
Someone touched me on the arm and said you'll have to wait

Then I noticed there were people standing in a line
Some of them were holding pretty flowers just like mine
They explained that Susie had been in an awful crash
Doctors said that she had just a little while to last

When I walked into her room I felt the sense of shame
But I heard Susie whisper I'm awfully glad you came
She had been the girl that I had always gone to see
When someone that I cared for had been untrue to me

I handed her the flowers and she gently kissed my hand
She said don't be embarrassed for you know I understand
I said goodbye and as I bent to kiss her fevered brow
I heard her whisper thank you for the second handed flowers
