Eighteen Yellow Roses

Song Author Bobby Darin Performer: Marty Robbins Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]Eighteen yellow [G7]roses came [C]today
Eighteen yellow [G7]roses in a pretty bou[C]quet
[F]When the boy came to the door
[C]I didn't know what to say

But [G7]eighteen yellow roses came to[C]day [G7]    
I [C]opened up the [G7]card to see what it [C]said[G7]    
I [C]couldn't believe my [G7]eyes when I had [C]read
Though [F]you belong to another I [C]love you anyway
Yes [G7]eighteen yellow roses came [C]today

[Eb]I never doubted your love for a [C]minute
[Eb]I always thought that you would be [C]true
[Eb]But now this box and the flowers [C]in it
[Eb]I guess there's nothin' left for [F]me to [G7]do   

But [C]ask to meet the [G7]boy that's done this [C]thing[G7]    
And [C]find out if he's got p[G7]lans to buy you a [C]ring[C7]    
'Cause [F]eighteen yellow roses [C]will wilt and die one day
But a [G7]father's love will never fade [C]away


Eighteen yellow roses came today
Eighteen yellow roses in a pretty bouquet
When the boy came to the door
I didn't know what to say

But eighteen yellow roses came today
I opened up the card to see what it said
I couldn't believe my eyes when I had read
Though you belong to another I love you anyway
Yes eighteen yellow roses came today

I never doubted your love for a minute
I always thought that you would be true
But now this box and the flowers in it
I guess there's nothin' left for me to do

But ask to meet the boy that's done this thing
And find out if he's got plans to buy you a ring
'Cause eighteen yellow roses will wilt and die one day
But a father's love will never fade away
