Faded Roses

This song is by Clarence Ashley and Tex Isley and appears on the album Play and Sing American Folk Music (1966).

Little sweetheart, we have parted
From each other we must go
Many miles we stand apart, dear
In this world of pain and woe

Down among the faded roses
I am nothing but a stem
I have parted from my darling
Never more to meet again

But the treasures of this parting
Will you meet me in that land?
There you say we'll meet together
When the roses bloom again

Down among the faded roses
I am nothing but a stem
I have parted from my darling
Never more to meet again

But the treasures of this parting
Will there be no coming day
When our hearts unite together
And all sorrows passed away?

Down among the faded roses
I am nothing but a stem
I have parted from my darling
Never more to meet again

Darling, meet me up in heaven
That's my true and earnest prayer
If you love me here on earth, dear
I am sure you'll love me there

Down among the faded roses
I am nothing but a stem
I have parted from my darling
Never more to meet again
