Standard (EADGBE)

Eighteen yellow roses came today

Eighteen yellow roses in a pretty bouquet

When the boy came to the door

I didn't know what to say

But, eighteen yellow roses came today.

I opened up the card to see what it said

I couldn't believe my eyes

When I had read

Though you belong to another I love you anyway

Yes, eighteen yellow roses came today.

I never doubted your love for a minute

I always thought that you would be true

But now this box and the flowers in it

I guess there's nothin' left for me to do.

But ask to meet the boy that's done this thing

And find out if he's got plans to buy you a ring

'cause eighteen yellow roses

Will wilt and die one day ...

But... a father's love will never fade away

Will never fade away...

simple and easy just listen to this song and you'll figure the pattern for ending
