    Lyrics

    (Ervin T. Rouse - Lois Mann - Murray Burns)
    George Jones & Gene Pitney

    (Both)
    Just as far as I can remember
    She'll remain the rose of my heart
    Mom took sick along in December
    February brought us broken hearts.

    (George)
    The reason we've not called the family reunion
    We knew that she wouldn't be there
    But since we've thought it all over, mama
    We know that your spirit is there.

    (Both)
    No, no, I can't forget the hours
    You're the onliest one mom
    And sweeter than the flowers
    No, no, there's no need to bother
    It's because you now
    Would only hurt father.

    --- Instrumental ---

    It looks so good to see us together
    But I had to look after dad
    Oh mama, when I passed by your coffin
    I didn't want to remember you dead.

    (Gene)
    They all gathered round I stared at their faces
    All heads were bowed mighty low
    But that was one time we all had to face it
    It hurt us so bad you know.

    (Both)
    No, no, I can't forget the hours
    You're the onliest one mom
    And sweeter than the flowers
    No no there's no need to bother
    It's because you now
    Would only hurt father.

    Oh no momma we'll never forget you
    And someday we'll meet you up there...
