Jim Dixon Lyr Add: Give Me the Roses While I Live (37) Lyr Add: BRING MY FLOWERS NOW (Tanya Tucker) 02 Aug 20

I just became aware of another song that fits this genre:

Words and music by Brandi Carlile, Phil Hanseroth, Tim Hanseroth, & Tanya Tucker
As recorded by Tanya Tucker on "While I'm Livin'" (2019)

CHORUS: Bring my flowers now while I'm livin'.
I won't need your love when I'm gone.
Don't spend time, tears, an' money on my ol' breathless body.
If your heart is in them flowers, bring 'em on.

All the miles cast a long shadow.
I'd take a couple back if I could.
I'd have learned to play guitar, tell my daddy more I loved him,
But I believe for the most part I done good.

There's always sunrise an' rainbows an' babies,
And the little things that I cherished on my way,
And even though I'm dead, they'll bury me an' Jesse Ray.
I just know we're gonna rise again someday. CHORUS

The days are long but the years are lightnin'.
They're bright and they will never strike again.
I wish I'd been a better friend, a better daughter to my mother,
But there's no going back when your back's against the wind.

So if you got love, then you're sittin' on a gold mine,
And you can't take it with you when you go;
So don't wait to help your sister, forgive your brother and your neighbor.
We all think we've got the time until we don't. CHORUS
