We all were called to come back to the old home on the farm
And as my daddy watched his eyes were filled with pain and hurt
Don't step on mother's roses daddy cried she planted them the day she was my bride
She made my darkest days look bright round the old homeplace
The way they did since many years ago
Don't step on mother's roses let them grow
Daddy had to go we all miss him so
But when their petals are abused I hear my daddy say
