(Carl Story - Shirl Lyn - Carl Smith)

The orchid is a flower that blooms so tenderly
To thrill the fairest lady of the land
If placed beside a blushing rose the rose cannot compare
But how was such as I to understand.

I overlooked an orchid while searching for a rose
The orchid that I overlooked was you
The rose that I was searching for has proved to be untrue
The orchid now I find my dear was you.

--- Instrumental ---

The rose has lost its color but the orchid is the same
And I'm alone to face these lonely years
I didn't see the orchid I was searching for a rose
And now I pay the price with bitter tears.

I overlooked an orchid while searching for a rose
The orchid that I overlooked was you
The rose that I was searching for has proved to be untrue
The orchid now I find my dear was you...
This song is from the album "Born to Sing (Bear Family (Germany))" and "Connie in the Country [RCA Camden]".
