Tom T. Hall – Little Green Flower With The Yellow On Top lyrics

The little green flower with the yellow on top
You told me the name but I soon forgot
I know roses and forget-me-nots what's that little green flower with the yellow on top

We got married in a little white church I had a big red rose on my shirt
You had some flowers but you gave them away
And the little green flower was bloomin' that day
It's that little green flower...

Remember the night that I came home drunk
Stopped in the driveway got you a bunch
You got mad said they shouldn't be picked
They were there next morning when I woke up sick
It's that little green flower...

It's been a long time since I gave you that ring
You often said I didn't know a bloomin' thing
But happy anniversary and look what I got
Some little green flowers with the yellow on top
