​Yellow Roses

This song is by Ry Cooder and appears on the album Chicken Skin Music (1976).

(K. Devine/S. Nichols)

I just received, sweetheart, your yellow roses
You tell me that 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 still love you though yellow roses say good bye
