Verse 1:
F# G
The boy only wanted to give Mother something
And all of her roses had bloomed.
F# G
Looking at her as he came rushing in with them
Knowing her roses were doomed,
EM F# Bm
All she could see were some thorns buried deep
Em F# Bm A
And the tears that were cried as she tended his wounds

CHORUS: (she)
D G Bm A
And (she) knew it was love
D G Bm A
It was one (she) could understand
He was showing his love,
Bm A D G Bm A
And that's how he hurt his hands.

Verse 2:
He still remembers that night as child
On his mother's knee
She held him close and she opened her bible
And quietly started to read,
And seeing a picture of Jesus he cried out,
"Momma, he's got some scars just like me."

CHORUS: (he)
(solos over a verse and chorus)

Verse 3:
Now the boy's grown and moved out on his own
When Uncle Sam comes along.
A foreign affair, but our young men were there
And luck had his number drawn.
It wasn't that long till our hero was gone
He gave to a friend what he learned from the cross.

CHORUS: (they)
