Scarlet Begonias

Grateful Dead

 EB
 As I was walkin' down Grosvenor Square,
 EB
Not a chill to the winter but a nip to the air,
 AEBAE
 From the other direction she was calling my eye,
 AEBAEB
 Could be an illusion but I might as well try, might as well try.

 EB
She had rings on her fingers and bells on her shoes,
 EB
And I knew without askin' she was into the blues.
 AEBAE
 She wore scarlet begonias tucked into her curls,
 AEBAEB
 I knew right away she was not like other girls, other girls.

 EB
In the thick of the evening when the dealin' got rough,
 EB
She was too pat to open and too cool to bluff.
 AEBAE
 As I picked up my matches and was closin' the door,
 AEBAEB
 I had one of those flashes, I'd been there before, been there before.

 F#
Well I ain't often right but I've never been wrong,
 BAE
 Seldom turns out the way it does in the song.
 F#
 Once in a while you get shown the light
 BAE
In the strangest of places if you look at it right.

 F#AB
     

 EB
Well there ain't nothin' wrong with the way she moves,
 EB
Or scarlet begonias or a touch of the blues.
 AEBAE
 And there's nothing wrong with the look that's in her eyes
 AEBAEB
 I had to learn the hard way to let her pass by, let her pass by.

 EB
The wind in the willow's playing "Tea for Two,"
 EB
The sky was yellow and the sun was blue,
 AEBAE
 Strangers stopping strangers just to shake their hand,
 AEBAEB
 Everybody's playing in the heart of gold band, heart of gold band.


As always, could someone please send this and the others to Nevada? Thanks a
million, and remember any requests for GDead songs send private email and I'll
post 'em here!

the first b sounds better as a b7 in the first position if you're playing solo acoustic (i think).  then to run the signature riff 2nd fret on the a string>1st fret d string>hammer on/pull 2nd fret d string and then on down the d..try it, sounds good
