Lyr Req: Give Me the Roses While I Live (Carter)

DigiTrad:
ANCHORED IN LOVE
ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT?
ARE YOU TIRED OF ME MY DARLING
BLUE EYES
BUDDIES IN THE SADDLE
CHEWING GUM
DEAR COMPANION
DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH
GEORGIE ON THE IRT (parody on Engine 143)
GOD GAVE NOAH THE RAINBOW SIGN
GOLD WATCH AND CHAIN
I AIN'T GOT NO HOME IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE
I CAN'T FEEL AT HOME IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE
JUST A FEW MORE DAYS
LULU WALLS
RAILROADING ON THE GREAT DIVIDE
SAILOR ON THE DEEP BLUE SEA
SINGLE GIRL
THE CUBAN SOLDIER
THE LITTLE GYPSY GIRL
THE STORMS ARE ON THE OCEAN
THE WRECK ON THE C & O
WAVES ON THE SEA
YOU ARE MY FLOWER

Subject: One more Carter Family request

A friend of mine used to do a song that he said was Carter Family in origin. I've looked in the DT and elsewhere, but since I don't remember it exactly, haven't had any luck yet. I know there are Carter Family Fans here that can help...

It goes something like:

Send me no flowers (roses?) after I'm gone...

Thanks,

campfire

By the way, I like the new page added in for starting a new thread, asking if all the obvious has been done.

The song is "Give Me the Roses While I Live" and it's on record by the Carter Family on an album of the same title. We carry it at Camsco.

Dear Campfire, PLEASE learn the song and spread it around. It is one of my favorites-- have been trying for some years to put a set of "secular gospel" songs together & this is one of the best.

I enjoyed hearing it, too. I can't beleive I never bothered to learn it when my friend was performing it. I guess I thought I could just listen forever...

If anyone has the chords, it would save me a lot of time - I'm NOT very good at playing by ear.

Thanks again, all,

campfire
