Life Has its Little Ups And Downs

Song Author Margaret A. Rich Lyrics by: Margaret A. Rich Performer: Charlie Rich Submitted by: Anonymous
[G]I don’t know how to tell her
[C]That I didn’t get that raise in pay to[G]day  
And I [F]know how much she wanted the [C]dress
In Bakers window and it [G]breaks my heart
[C]To see her have to [G]wait
[C]And cancel [G]all her plans she [C]made to cele[G]brate

But I can [F]count on her to take it
With a [C]smile and not a [G]frown

She knows that life has its little ups and downs

Like ponies on a merry-go-round
[G7]And no [F]one grabs the brass ring every [C]time
But she don’t [G]mind  she wears a [D7]gold ring
On her [C]finger and it’s [G]mine


The new house plans we’ve had so long
[C]I guess will gather dust another [G]year
And the [F]daffodils are blooming
That she [C]planted way last fall
Upon the [G]hill and [C]over by the [G]gate
[C]And Lord knows I [G]hate to say a[C]gain well have to [G]wait

But I can [F]count on her to take it
With a [C]smile and not a [G]frown

She knows that life has its little ups and downs

Like ponies on a merry-go-round
[G7]And no [F]one grabs the brass ring every [C]time
But she don’t [G]mind  she wears a [D7]gold ring
On her [C]finger and it’s [G]mine

[C]And I’m so glad that its [G]mine
She wears a [D7]gold ring on her [C]finger
And I’m so glad that it’s [G]mine

I don’t know how to tell her
That I didn’t get that raise in pay today
And I know how much she wanted the dress
In Bakers window and it breaks my heart
To see her have to wait
And cancel all her plans she made to celebrate

But I can count on her to take it
With a smile and not a frown

She knows that life has its little ups and downs

Like ponies on a merry-go-round
And no one grabs the brass ring every time
But she don’t mind  she wears a gold ring
On her finger and it’s mine

The new house plans we’ve had so long
I guess will gather dust another year
And the daffodils are blooming
That she planted way last fall
Upon the hill and over by the gate
And Lord knows I hate to say again well have to wait

But I can count on her to take it
With a smile and not a frown

She knows that life has its little ups and downs

Like ponies on a merry-go-round
And no one grabs the brass ring every time
But she don’t mind  she wears a gold ring
On her finger and it’s mine

And I’m so glad that its mine
She wears a gold ring on her finger
And I’m so glad that it’s mine
