Levy has a title "Just One Rose", 1924, but no image. I also found this--, with background MIDI, maybe???

there is a bluegrass/gospel song called Just One Rose Will Do, but I don't know about finding lyrics anywhere, I am sure it has been recorded though. Don't know if that's the one, or how old a tune it is.

There is a recitation here, but I'll bet that is not it either. Found references to the bluegrass song, but no lyrics.

Lyrics copied from http://members.aol.com/garydodee/GJSONGS.HTML#A10

JUST A ROSE WILL DO
(J. A. McClung, 1942)

When time shall come for my leaving, when I bid you adieu,
Don't spend your money for flowers. Just a rose will do.

CHORUS: I'll go to a beautiful garden at last when life's work is through.
Don't spend your money for flowers. Just a rose will do.

Just have an old-fashioned preacher preach a sermon so true.
I'll need no beautiful flowers. Just a rose will do. CHO.

I'll need no organization just to make a to-do.
I'll need no bright decorations. Just a rose will do. CHO.
