YOU SENT HER AN ORCHID
Recorded by Jean Shepard
Words and music by Jerry Jerico and Kenneth Grant
[C] You said you'd forget her, you tried I sup-[F] pose
But you sent her an [C] Orchid, you sent me a [G7] Rose
I'm plain as the [C] sunshine, she wears fancy [F] clothes
So you sent her an [C] Orchid, [G7] you sent me a [C] Rose.
The [F] thing that really breaks my heart, is [C] finding out you lied
If [F] you'd been honest at the start, I [C] would have stepped a-[G7] side
You think it's a [C] secret, but ever'one [F] knows
That you sent her an [C] Orchid, [G7] you sent me a [C] Rose.
It [F] wasn't bad enough to cheat and [C] run around on me
You [F] had to go and add the insult [C] to the injur-[G7] y
Go buy her some [C] diamonds, for her fancy [F] clothes
Then send her an [C] Orchid and [G7] give her this [C] Rose.
