	  		This Orchid Means Good Bye 
by Carl Smith 
written by B. Bryant & M. Webb 
recorded  02/18/1953 
 
VERSE 1: 
To-(C)night I (G7)send an (C)orchid 
And though I'll al-ways (F)care 
This orchid means good-(C)bye to you 
     and to our love af-(G7)fair 
It's (C)just my way to tell you 
And I hope that you want (F)cry 
But I be-long to (C)some-one else 
     this (G7)orchid means good-(C)bye 
 
VERSE 2: 
(C)When you (G7)said that you (C)lov-ed me 
     I knew it wouldn't (F)do 
Cause I'm in love with (C)some-one else 
      I guess I love you (G7)too 
But I'm (C)marri-ed to a-nother 
What chance of you and (F)I 
So I just send an (C)orchid, dear 
     This (G7)orchid, means good-(C)bye 
 
VERSE 3: 
(C)Our love (G7)might have been (C)dif-fer-ent 
But I made sa-cred (F)vows 
And I can't ever (C)break the heart 
     that I hold with mine, (G7)now 
So (C)please for-get the past dear 
     as time goes pass-ing (F)by 
Cause we can't ever (C)love a-gain 
     This (G7)orchid means good-(C)bye
