Do Yellow Roses Say Goodby

Artist's Description

I always thought that yellow roses stood for friendship, symbolically. However the lyrics below have another meaning. These lyrics have been sung by some pretty famous people, Dolly Parton and Hank Snow are two examples. Since this subject seems pretty subjective, I’ll let you decide.

Yellow Roses

I just received, sweetheart
Your yellow roses
You tell me dear
They mean that we’re all through

You tell me that
Tonight your heart is broken
But you should know
I was never untrue

I’ll place them near your photograph
And as the petals fall
They’ll hide from you my lonely tears
That shouldn’t fall at all

Then they will slowly
Fade away and die
But I’ll still love you
Though yellow roses say goodbye

I’ll place them near your photograph
And as the petals fall
They’ll hide from you my lonely tears
That shouldn’t fall at all

Then they will slowly
Fade away and die
But I’ll still love you
Though yellow roses say goodbye
