INTRO: G

#1.
G                      F    C               G
The orchid is a flower that blooms so tenderly.
G                           Em7    D
It thrills the fairest lady of the land.
   G                                 C
If placed beside a blushing rose the rose could 
       G
not compare.
G                   D          G     D G
But how was such as I, to understand?

CHORUS:
G                            C
I overlooked an orchid while searching for a 
G
rose.
G                                D
The orchid that I overlooked was you.
    G                                 C
The rose that I was searching for has proved to 
     G
be untrue.
G                  D                  G
The orchid, that I find, my dear, was you.


INTERLUDE: G D G

#2.
G            D        G              C
The rose has lost its color, but the orchid stays 
    G
the same.
G                                  D
And I'm alone to face these lonely years.
  G                            C             G
I didn't see the orchid, I was looking for a rose.
G                 D                 G
And now I pay the price with bitter tears.

CHORUS:
G                            C
I overlooked an orchid while searching for a 
G
rose.
G                                D
The orchid that I overlooked was you.
    G                                 C
The rose that I was searching for has proved to 
     G
be untrue.
G                  D                  G
The orchid, that I find, my dear, was you.
