Mama Liked The Roses
Words and music by J. Christopher)

Elvis' mother died in 1958, at the time when Elvis
was at the start of his career. When Elvis got the
news of her death,he rushed to the hospital where
she had been on observation for hepatitis. No one!
No relatives, friends or Elvis' father - could come
through the condition of a total riot of minds that
Elvis had at this time.

At the burial Elvis let go of a tidalwave of sorrow.
Funeral guests had never experienced this kind of
physical grief at a burial. With the death of his mother,
Elvis went into a state of profound shock from which he
would never fully emerge. To say Elvis was devastated,
is the understatement of this century!!
