Hank Snow - Just A Faded Petal From A Beautiful Bouquet lyrics

Darling I recieved your last long letter
And in close I found the petal from the rose
Then I picked and placed it in your head dear
Where we strolled beneath the moonbeams long ago

You say that you can understand today dear
Why in tears I told you when you went away
Now you're leaving and I'll be so lonely
Like a faded petal from a beautiful bouquet
[ guitar ]
You tell me that tonight you're broken hearted
Your happiness in life sweetheart you say it's through
And that you regret the day you left me
And broke my heart to change an old love for the new

With aching heart and tears I write this letter
Old mem'ries I could never never cast away
I'll forget you and you'll find me waiting
Like a faded petal from a beautiful bouquet
