Lyrics JUST AS FAR AS I CAN REMEMBER
SHE'LL REMAIN
THE ROSE IN MY HEART
MOM TOOK SICK
ALONG IN DECEMBER,
FEBRUARY
BROUGHT US BROKEN HEARTS.
THE REASON
WE'VE NOT CALLED
A FAMILY REUNION
WE KNEW SHE WOULDN'T BE THERE.
BUT SINCE WE'VE THOUGHT IT OVER,
MAMA,
WE KNOW YOUR SPIRIT IS THERE.

NO,
NO,
I CAN'T FORGET THE HOURS,
YOU'RE THE DEAREST MOM
AND SWEETER THAN THE FLOWERS.
NO,
NO,
THERE'S NO NEED TO BOTHER,
TO SPEAK OF YOU NOW
WOULD ONLY HURT FATHER.
OH,
NO,
MAMA WE'LL NEVER FORGET YOU
AND SOMEDAY
WE'LL MEET YOU UP THERE.

WE ALL GATHERED 'ROUND,
I STARED AT THEIR FACES,
ALL HEADS WERE BOWED DOWN
MIGHTY LOW,
THAT WAS ONE TIME MAMA,
WE ALL HAD TO FACE IT
IT HURTS SO BAD YOU KNOW.

NO,
NO,
I CAN'T FORGET THE HOURS,
YOU'RE THE DEAREST MOM
AND SWEETER THAN THE FLOWERS.
NO,
NO,
THERE'S NO NEED TO BOTHER,
TO SPEAK OF YOU NOW
WOULD ONLY HURT FATHER.
OH,
NO,
MAMA WE'LL NEVER FORGET YOU
AND SOMEDAY
WE'LL MEET YOU UP THERE.
