"I Overlooked an Orchid (While Searching for a Rose)" as written by Shirley Lyn, Carl Smith and Carl Story....
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
[ steel ]
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...
