Yellow Roses
Written and Recorded by Dolly Parton

 
C 
Hello you said the day we  
C7 
met handing  
F 
me a yellow rose
 
You  
G7 
asked me out and to your surprise and to  
F 
mine I said I’d  
C 
go
 
I thought it so romantic  
C7 
and I  
F 
found you sweet and bold
 
Though we’d only met I  
C 
still said yes to a  
G7 
single yellow  
C 
rose
 
And for years to come you were the  
C7 
one to  
F 
sleep with me at night
 
To  
G7 
laugh and talk and share my thoughts and  
F 
hold me when I’d  
C 
cry
 
And on every rare occasion  
C7 
and for  
F 
no good reason to
 
A big bouquet or a  
C 
single yellow  
G7 
rose was sent from  
C 
you
C7 
Yellow 
 
 
F 
roses the color of  
C 
sunshine
 
You loved me at  
G7 
one time why did you have to  
C 
go
C7 
Yellow 
 
 
F 
roses are you sending your  
C 
new 
 
love
 
My bright yellow  
G7 
rose buds I still love you  
C 
so
 
I never see a yellow rose  
F 
that I don’t think of you
G7 
It’s still my favorite flower though the  
F 
yellow’s turned to  
C 
blue
 
The day you left my teardrops fell  
F 
upon your farewell note
 
You said goodbye like you  
C 
said hello with  
G7 
a single yellow  
C 
rose
Repeat #3 x2
