E                B7           E 
Eighteen yellow roses came today 
E                B7                E        E6     E7 
Eighteen yellow roses in a pretty bouquet 
          A                       E                  C#m 
When the boy came to the door, I didn't know what to say 
     B7                           E    B7 
But eighteen yellow roses came today 
   E            B7                    E 
I opened up the card to see what it said 
   E                    B7             E 
I couldn't believe my eyes when I had read 
        A                        E          C#m 
'Though you belong to another I love you anyway' 
     B7                            E   B7/F# 
Yes, eighteen yellow roses came today 
G                                E  
I never doubted your love for a minute 
G                                   E  
I always thought that you would be true 
G                                 E  
But now this box, and the flowers in it 
G                                E     B7  
I guess there's nothin' left for me to do 
     E              B7                     E 
But ask to meet the boy that's done this thing 
     E                    B7                 E 
And find out if he's got plans to buy you a ring 
         A                         E               C#m 
'Cause eighteen yellow roses will wilt and die one day 
       B7                           E   B7               E 
But a father's love will never fade away will never fade away
