Slim Whitman – Paint A Rose On A Garden Wall lyrics

I might live a little longer dear
A sick mother said to her son
I will leave you when the roses dissappear
They're fading one by-y one
Then the boy got down to pray
And his prayer started in this way
Please paint a rose o'er the garden wall
So mum will think summer's still here
The doctor said she
Would be taken from me
When the roses dissappeared
She'll think the painted flower is real
It will give her new courage somehow
So please paint a rose by the garden wall
So mama won't leave me now
[Spoken:]
You know they say that
A boy's best friend is his mother
And I for one know that it's true
They'll stay by your side when there's no other
And guard you when you're alone and blue
So is it asking to much dear God
To spare me these heartaches, these tears
Won't you please paint a rose on the garden wall
So my mum will think summer's still here
She'll think the painted flower is real
It will give her new courage somehow
So please paint a rose on the garden wall
So mama won't leave me now
