Artificial Flowers  Bobby Darin

Al[A]one in the wo[F#m]rld was[C#m7-5] poor little A[F#m]nne
As s[D9]weet a young [Bm7-5]child [E7/6] as y[E7]ou'd f[A]ind.[Edim] [E7]
Her [A]parents had [F#m]gone to thei[C#m7-5]r final rew[F#m]ard
D9 Bm7-5 E7alt E7/6 E7 A Edim E7
Leavin' their ba - by be - hind.
This[A] poor little [F#m]child was only[C#m7-5] nine years of[F#m] age
When m[D9]other and[Bm7-5] dad [E7/6]went [E7]a - w[A]ay;[Edim] [E7]
[A]Still bravely w[F#m]orked at the[C#m7-5] one thing she [F#m]knew
D9 Bm7-5 E7alt E7/6 E7 Fdim A
To earn her few pen - nies a day.
Refrain 1:
[A7] [D9] [Bm7-5] [Dm6] [A] [D9] [A]  
 
 She made ar - ti - fic - ial flowers, ar - ti - fic - ial flowers,

F[D9]low -[Fdim] ers fo[Bm7-5]r la - d[E7]ies of f[A]ash - [D9]ion[Fdim] to w[A]ear;
[A7]She made [D9]ar - ti -[Bm7-5] fic - ial flowers,
You[Dm6] know those a[A]r - ti [C#m7-5]- fic - ial [F#7]flowers,
D9 Dm6 Bm7-5 E7alt E7/6 E7 A
Fash - ioned from Ann - ie's des - pair.
With [A]paper and s[F#m]hears, with some[C#m7-5] wire and [F#m]wax
She [D9]made up[Bm7-5] each [E7/6] tu - [E7]lip and m[A]um.[Edim] [E7]
As sn[A]owflakes drifted[F#m] into her[C#m7-5] ten - e - ment [F#m]room
D9 Bm7-5 E7alt E7/6 E7 A D9 A
Her baby little fin - gers grew numb.
Refrain 2:
[A7] [D9] [Bm7-5] [Dm6] [A] [D9] [A]  
 
 From makin' ar - ti - fic - ial flowers, ar - ti - fic - ial flowers

[D9]Flow [Fdim]- ers for[Bm7-5] la - d[E7]ies of h[A]igh f[D9]ashio[Fdim]n to w[A]ear.
[A7] [D9] [Bm7-5] [Dm6] [A] [C#m7-5] [F#7]  
 
 She made ar - ti - fic - ial flowers, ar - ti - fic - ial flowers

D9 Dm6 Bm7-5 E7alt E7/6 E7 A Edim E7
Fash - ioned from Ann - ie's des - pair.
They [A]found little [F#m]Annie all [C#m7-5]covered in[F#m] ice
Still [D9]clutch -[Dm6] in' her[Bm7-5] poor [E7/6]froz -[E7] en she[A]ars;[Edim] [E7]
Ami[A]dst all the [F#m]blossoms she had[C#m7-5] fashioned by[F#m] hand
And [D9]wa - [Bm7-5]tered with[E7/6] all [E7]her [Fdim]young t[A]ears.[Edim] [E7]
There m[A]ust be a h[F#m]eaven where little[C#m7-5] Annie can [F#m]play
In [D9]heav -[Dm6] en - ly[Bm7-5] gar -[E7/6] dens [E7]and b[A]owers.[Edim] [E7]
And i[A]nstead of a h[F#m]alo she'll wear [C#m7-5]'round her [F#m]head
D9 Bm7-5 E7alt E7/6 E7 Fdim A D9 A
A gar - land of gen - u - ine flow - ers.
Refrain 3:
[A7]No more [D9]ar - ti -[Bm7-5] fic - ial f[Dm6]lowers;
Throw [Fdim]away those [A]ar - ti - [D9]fic - ial flo[A]wers,
F[D9]low -[Fdim] ers for[Bm7-5] la - d[E7]ies[Fdim] of so - [A]ci - et -[D9] y [Fdim] to w[A]ear.
Throw aw[A7]ay those [D9]ar - ti -[Bm7-5] fic - ial f[Dm6]lowers[A], those[C#m7-5] dumb-dumb f[F#7]lowers,
D9 Dm6 Bm7-5 E7alt E7/6 Fdim
Fash - ioned from Ann - ie's,
D9 Dm6 Bm7-5 E7alt E7/6 E7 A
Fash - ioned from Ann - ie's des - pair.
[Bm7-5]Give her the [Cdim]real t[A6]hing!
