Eighteen Yellow Roses
recorded by Marty Robbins
written by Bobby Darin

C G7 C
Eighteen yellow roses came today
G7 C
Eighteen yellow roses in a pretty bouquet
When the boy came to the door
I didn't know what to say

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

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

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