Don't Step on Mother's Roses Lyrics

(Johnny Cash)
© '59 Anne Rachel Music, ASCAP / Song Of Cash Music, ASCAP

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...
