I can't believe I'm quoting from a site called ladyteddybear.com, but I found the lyrics here (click). It's from Dolly Parton's 1989 White Limozeen album. the Harry Fox Agency's songfile.com says the songwriter is Dolly Parton.

Yellow Roses
(Dolly Parton)

Hello you said the day we met
Handing me a yellow rose
You asked me out
And to your surprise
And to mine I said I'd go
I tought it to be so romantic
And I found you sweet and bold
Though we'd only met
I still said yes
To a single yellow rose

And for years to come
You were the one
To sleep with me at night
To laugh and talk
And share my thoughts
And hold me when I cry
And on every rare occasion
And for no good reason to
A big bouquet or a single yellow rose
Was sent from you.

Yellow roses
The color of sunshine
You loved me at one time
Why did you have to go
Yellow roses
Are you sending your new love
My bright yellow rose buds
I still love you so.

I never see a yellow rose
That I don't think of you
It's still my favorite flower
Though the yellow's turned to blue
The day you left my teardrops fell
Upon your favorite note
You said goodbye like you said hello
With a single yellow rose.

Yellow roses
The color of sunshine
You loved me at one time
Why did you have to go
Sweet yellow roses
Are you sending your new love
My bright yellow rose buds
I still love you so.
