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

 G(7)D(5G/DD
   because your baby, is so far away.

Chorus 1:

Bm A G CGCG (see note 1)
Well there's a rose in the fisted glove,
 BmAGCGCG

 GD
   love the one you're with,
 GD
   love the one you're with.

Verse 2:
Don't be angry, don't be sad,
and don't sit crying, over good times you've had,
There's a girl, right next to you
and she's just waiting, for something to do.

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:

 FCDmC
        If you're down          and confused...     

 AmGF
        There's a rose    in a fisted glove...

 CFC
        Love the one you're with      

 DmC
        Love the one you're with   

 BbC
                                                                                                                      
	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

 CGCGCE
        -4  -2  -2   0  +1   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

 EbdimDmC
        Why do we never get an answer

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