"Don't Step on Mother's Roses"

We all were called to come back to the old home on the farm

Mother's passed away what a mournful day

And as my daddy watched his eyes were filled with pain and hurt

When someone stepped upon a rose and crush it in the dirt



Don't step on mother's roses daddy cried

She planted them the day she was my bride

And everytime I see a rose I see her smilin' face

She made my darkest days look bright round the old homeplace



Don't step on mother's roses let them grow

The way they did since many years ago

They'll bloom for me each year and I'll have mother near

Don't step on mother's roses let them grow



Years have passed away and how the old homeplace has changed

Daddy had to go we all miss him so

Children pick the roses as they go along the way

But when their petals are abused I hear my daddy say



Don't step on mother's roses...
