Hank Snow – Just A Faded Petal From A Beautiful Bouquet lyrics

Darling I recieved your last long letter
And in close I found the petal from the rose
Then I picked and placed it in you your head dear
When we courted neath the moonbeams long ago.

You said that you can understand today dear
Why in tears I told you when you went away
Now you're leaving and I'll be so lonely
Like a faded petal from a beautiful bouquet.

--- Instrumental ---

You tell me that tonight you're broken hearted
Your happiness in life sweetheart you say it's through
And that you regret the day you left me
And broke my heart to change an old love for the new.

With aching heart and tears I write this letter
Old mem'ries I could never never cast away
I still love you and you'll find me waiting
Like a faded petal from a beautiful bouquet...
