Willie Nelson

Willie Nelson - Dead Flowers guitar chord

This song is included on the new Willie Nelson CD "Stars and Guitars" as a

duet with Keith Richards - a little from the country side of the Stones.

It's been covered by Steve Earle and Alan Jackson.

I don't think I've ever been in a country band that didn't do a rocked-up

version of "Dead Flowers." The leads work out of the G and D triads, and

use a few reverse bends.

I'll Post Them as well to get you started.

Dead Flowers Rolling Stones

Intro: D A G D X3

Verse 1.

D A G D

When you are sitting there, in your silk upholstered chair

D A G

Talking to some rich folk that you know

D A G D

Well I hope you won't see me in my ragged company

D A G D - A

Cause you know I could never be alone

Chorus

A D

Take me down little Susie, take me down

A D

I know you think you're the queen of the underground

G D

And you can send me dead flowers every morning

G D

Send me dead flowers by the mail

G D

Send me dead flowers at my wedding

D A G D

And I won't forget to put roses on your grave

Verse 2.

When you're sitting back in your rose pink Cadillac

Making bets on Kentucky Derby Day

Well I'll be in my basement room with a needle and a spoon

And another heart to take my pain away

Outro

Take me down little Susie, take me down

I know you think you're the queen of the underground

And you can send me dead flowers every morning

Send me dead flowers by the U. S. mail,

Say it with dead flowers at my wedding

And I won't forget to put roses on your grave

And I won't forget to put roses on your grave.

Thanks and let me know what 'y'all think - Eric.
