I Overlooked an Orchid 
recorded by Carl Smith
written by
Carl Story, Shirl Lyn, Carl Smith
 
C F C
The orchid is a flower that blooms so tenderly
G7
To thrill the fairest lady of the land
C
If placed beside a blushing rose
F C
the rose could not compare
G7 C
But how was such as I to under-stand

C F C
I over looked an orchid while search-ing for a rose
G7
The orchid that I over looked was you
C
The rose that I was searching for
F C
has proved to be untrue
G7 C
The orchid now I find my dear was you

C F C
The rose has lost it's color
but the orchid is the same
G7
And I'm alone to face these lonely years
C
I didn't see the orchid

F C
I was looking for a rose

G7 C
And now I pay the price with bitter tears

repeat #2
