Mama Sold Roses

Capo 1

C                      F      C
Mama sold roses in the year '49
          C                                G
They were made out of paper and sold for a dime
    C                      F           C 
She carved out a living by walking the streets
        C                          G              C 
Crying, who'll buy my roses with a voice soft and sweet

If love was a measure of diamonds or gold
No one could afford the roses she sold
She'd shape the crape' paper and softly she'd say
Your mama is tired it's been a long day

       G                         F          C
You'll find her on the corner at her flower stand
        F         C              G
Painted on an old sign, roses by hand
        G                        F         C 
They're only made of paper would you be so kind
F               C         G           C 
Buy one for the lady they only cost a dime

Twenty-nine years have gone by since mom passed away
If you're looking for roses they're there on display
They're not made of paper and they don't cost a dime
Each rose in the window has a two dollar sign


Buy one for the lady they only cost a dime
