Second Handed Flowers Lyrics
I decided I'd look up a girl that I once knew
I bought some flowers and went to see a girl I used to know
The lady at her door said she had married long ago
Times will change and towns will change there I was alone
And suddenly I wondered, would Susie be at home?
So, with the flowers in my hand, I walked toward her gate
Someone touched me on the arm and said, ?You'll have to wait?
Then I noticed there were people standing in line
And some of them were holding pretty flowers, just like mine
They explained that Susie had been in an awful crash
Doctors said that she had just a little while to last
When I walked into her room, I felt a sense of shame
But I heard Susie whisper, "I'm awfully glad you came"
She had been the girl that I had always gone to see
When someone that I cared for had been untrue to me
I handed her the flowers and she gently kissed my hand
She said, ?Don't be embarrassed, you know I understand?
I said, ?Goodbye? and as I bent to kiss her fevered brow
I heard her whisper, "Thank you for the second handed flowers"
