You Sent Her An Orchid
Recorded by Jean Shepard
Written by Jerry Jerico and Kenneth Grant

G                                        C
You said you'd forget her you tried I suppose
                    G                     D7
But you sent her an Orchid  you sent me a Rose
                 G                        C
I'm plain as the sunshine she wears fancy clothes
                   G       D7            G
So you sent her an Orchid  you sent me a Rose
    C                                    G
The thing that really breaks my heart is finding out you lied
   C                                G                   D7
If you'd been honest at the start I would have stepped aside
                 G                   C
You think it's a secret but everyone knows
                     G       D7            G
That you sent her an Orchid  you sent me a Rose
   C                              G
It wasn't bad enough to cheat and run around on me
    C                            G        D7
You had to go and add the insult to the injury
                G                      C
Go buy her some diamonds for her fancy clothes
                 G           D7            G
Then send her an Orchid  and give her this Rose
