I Overlooked an Orchid Sung by Mickey Gilley on CD 10 Years of Hits Sony/Columbia
This great honky tonk tune, teaches a lesson of life as most country songs do. It was recorded by Mickey Gilley in the key of G. I play bass guitar, so I put in the places for the bass walk-ups to the next chord. In Nashville numbering the chords are 1=G, 4=C, 5=D. G G C G (walk to 1) The orchid is a flower that blooms so tenderly. G G D7 D (walkup 5 to 1) It thrills the fairest lady of the land. G G G (walk 1-4) If placed beside a blushing rose, C G The rose could not compare. G D7 G G (walk to 1) But how was such as I, to understand.
chorus G G (walk 1-4) C G I overlooked an orchid while searching for a rose.
