Here are the words (from memory) and chords.
(Note that I'm not certain of the placement of the two choruses.)

In article you write:
>Nevada only has "southern cross", perhaps someone could post the chords
>(unless TAB is necessary) to this song...

Hi again...

The basic chord progression is:


        If you're down [F]    [C]     and confused...[Dm]     [C]
        There's a [Am]rose [G]   in a fisted g[F]love...
        Love the one you're w[C]ith  [F]    [C]
        Love the one you're w[Dm]ith   [C]
        [Bb]                  [C]                                                                                            
	Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do...

The acoustic guitar is actually played in open C tuning, and the lower
strings form sort of a drone throughout. Low to high, the tuning is

        -[C]4  -[G]2  -[C]2   [G]0  +[C]1   [E]0          (deviation from standard)

and the basic riff is then

005555 004003 002001 000000

Don't ask me how to play the Am-G-F part or the Bb-C in that tuning, though...

Andrew


PS: Incidentally, the Moody Blues' "Question" is also in open C, and uses
the *exact* same pattern under the "it's not the way that you say it" part.
Try it! The verses go

        Why do we [Ebdim]never [Dm]get an a[C]nswer

where Ebdim = 000232 (that's right, the same fingering as D in standard)
Dm = 002001
C = 000000
