Ry Cooder – Yellow Roses lyrics

(K. Devine/S. Nichols)
(C) - (F) - (G) - (Am)

(C) I just received, sweetheart, your yellow (F) roses
You tell me (C) that they (D) mean that we're all (G) through
You tell me (C) that tonight your heart is (F) broken
But you should (C) know (G) I was never un (C) true

I'll (F) place them near your photograph and (C) as the petals fall
They'll (G) hide from you my lonely tears that (D) shouldn't fall at (G) all
(C) Then they will slowly fade away and (F) die
But I still love (C) you though yellow (G) roses say good (C) bye
