Johnny Cash - Don't Step On Mother's Roses lyrics

We all were called to come back To the old home on the farm Mother's pa**ed 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 crushed it in the dirt "Don't step on Mother's roses," Daddy cried "She planted them the day she was my bride And every time I see a rose, I see her smilin' face She made my darkest days look bright 'Round the old home place" "Don't step on Mother's roses, let 'em 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 'em grow" Years have pa**ed away And how the old home place 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," Daddy cried "She planted them the day she was my bride And every time I see a rose, I see her smilin' face She made my darkest days look bright 'Round the old home place" "Don't step on Mother's roses, let 'em 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 'em grow"
