Yellow Roses-crd Hank Snow
[C]I ju[G7]st receiv[C]ed, sweethear[C7]t, your yellow roses,[F]
You tell me, dear, th[C]ey mean that we're all through[D7].[G7]
You tell me that, to[C]night you[C7]r heart is broken,[F]
But you should know, I w[C]as never untrue.[G7] [C]
I'll [F]place them near your photograph,
And as[C] the petals fall,
They'll h[D7]ide from you my lonely tears,
That shoul[G7]dn't fall at all.
Then they will slowly fa[C]de awa[C7]y and die,[F]
But I'll still love you,[C] though yellow roses say "g[G7]oodbye."[C]

original.) This song has been recorded by several artists, but none can top
number one, Clarence E. (Hank) Snow, the Singing Ranger.
