Life Has its Little Ups And Downs
recorded by Charlie Rich
written by 
Margaret A. Rich

I don’t know how to tell her
C                                     G
That I didn’t get that raise in pay today
      F                            C
And I know how much she wanted the dress
In Bakers window and it breaks my heart
C                  G
To see her have to wait
C          G                 C           G
And cancel all her plans she made to celebrate
But I can count on her to take it
       C               G
With a smile and not a frown
She knows that life has its little ups and downs
Like ponies on a merry-go-round
G7     F                              C
And no one grabs the brass ring every time
              G                 D7
But she don’t mind  she wears a gold ring
       C               G
On her finger and it’s mine
The new house plans we’ve had so long
C                                G
I guess will gather dust another year
And the daffodils are blooming
That she planted way last fall
         G        C           G
Upon the hill and over by the gate
C                G            C                 G
And Lord knows I hate to say again well have to wait
Repeat # 2
C                        G
And I’m so glad that its mine
            D7               C
She wears a gold ring on her finger
And I’m so glad that it’s mine
