Lyrics

Springtime is coming in the mountain by river on a hill where daddy lay all the song birds were singing and a robin build a nest on daddy's grave I planted dad a rose some time ago and oh that Rose how it did grow Springtime has come I'm glad to say and a robin build a nest on daddy's grave Oh that rose it bloomed so red and spread its beauty or that bed then a robin came one day and there she build a nest on daddy's grave, I planted dad a rose sometime ago and oh that Rose how it did grow Spring time has come I'm glad to say and a robin build a nest on daddys grave. Oh the rose how it did bloom I believe the Lord is coming soon. That's what the rose it seemed to say and a robin build a nest on daddy's grave. I planted dad a rose sometime ago and oh the rose how it did grow. Spring time has come I'm glad to say and a robin build a nest on daddy's grave. Oh the rose how it did bloom I believe the Lord is coming soon. That's what the rose it seemed to say and a robin build a nest on daddy's grave.
