G                      G7    C         G
The orchid is a flower that blooms so tender'ly
To thrill the fairest lady of the land
    G                        G7
If placed beside a blush'in rose
       C                G
   the rose could not compare
                    D7         G
But how was such as I to under-stand

G                              C                G
I over looked an orchid while search-ing for a rose
The orchid that I over looked was you
    G                           G7
The rose that I was search-ing for,
            C               G
       has proved to be un-true
                D7                 G
The orchid now I find my dear was you 

The rose has lost it's color
        C             G
But the orchid is the same
And I'm alone to face these lone-ly years
I didn't see the orchid
            C         G
I was look-ing for a rose
                    D7               G
And now I pay the price with better tears
