This Orchid Means Goodbye
Carl Smith
The Essential Carl Smith (1950-1956)

  E        B7        E                           A
Tonight I send an orchid and though I'll always care
                     E                            B7
This orchid means goodbye to you and to our love affair
      E                                                A
It's just my way to tell you and I hope that you want cry
                 E                 B7             E
But I belong to someone else, this orchid means goodbye

Break: A-E-B7-E

E         B7            E                           A
When you said that you loved me, I knew it wouldn't do
                        E                               B7
Cause I'm in love with someone else, I guess I love you too
         E                                         A
But I'm married to another, what chance of you and I
                   E                 B7             E
So I just send an orchid dear, this orchid, means goodbye

Break: A-E-B7-E

E         B7              E                            A
Our love might have been different, but I made sacred vows
                  E                                    B7
And I can't ever break the heart that I hold with mine now
     E                                               A
So please forget the past dear, as time goes passing by
                     E                B7             E
Cause we can't ever love again, this orchid means goodbye
