Marty Robbins – 18 Yellow Roses lyrics
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.

    A Father is the recepient of the roses from his daughter. The 18 yellow roses are her way of telling her Dad that as happens to most Dads that he is losing his daughter to another man. Another man will be taking away the primary role that the Dad has played in her life up to that point. In spite of that he tells her that his love for her will go on forever.
