    "Give Me the Roses While I Live" Lyrics

    Ferlin Husky

    (R. H. Cornelius)

    Wonderful things of folks are said
    When they have passed away
    Roses adorn the narrow bed
    Over the sleeping clay.

    Give me the roses while I live
    Trying to cheer me on
    Useless are flowers that you give
    After the soul is gone.

    Let us not wait to do good deeds
    Till they have passed away
    Now is the time to sow good seeds
    While here on earth we stay.

    Kind words are useless when folks lie
    Cold in a narrow bed
    Don't wait till death to speak kind words
    Now should the words be said...
