                                              D 
I thinking about a young man who left and moved away           
    A                   D                          Bm7

wounded so much so that the doctor said,  he would

the family tried to get in touch with him but to no avail. And  
           G

D                          A                            D                Bm7 
legs before a fresh grave, with on faded rose in his hand. As  
                                                      E7                      A7 
he began to drop the petals from the rose on that grave, he  
             D                          G 
began to talk to his mother. These are some of the words he

was saying to his mother:
