Bhagavan Decreed The Flatlanders
(link to The Flatlanders official site: http://www.theflatlanders.com/)
"Bhagavan Decreed" chords off of the amazing More A Legend Than A Band album.
Listen to the song for precise timing during chord changes.
Barring the chords (or putting a capo on the third fret and working from there)
works excellent as well.
[G]Brains cannot defeat me when I'm [C]stoned little darling[G]
[G]Sticks and stones can beat you out of time[A7] [D7]
[G]And I'm standing on the brink of a [C]bridge that's black at sunrise[G]
[G]I don't think I'll be [A7]home in time to dine[G]
( Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/t/the_flatlanders/bhagavan_decreed_crd.html )
[C]Each plant has a root that's dipped in [G]blood
So later[C] on we'll all find out we're [A7]just nameless mud[D7]
And I'm sayi[G]n' good bye to those ol[C]d-time demons darli[G]ng
[G]Leave at your own [A7]risk, not mine[G]
(repeat the pattern throughout the remainder of the song)
Why can't you make it to the place you're always going to
Could it be you're going to all the time
Well I might be traveling backwards when I wake up tomorrow
If you must go won't you please leave me a dime
The earth turns on as Bhagavan decreed
So later on we'll see ourselves and all be free
But sayin' goodbye to you is suicidal darling
Don't hang your mind up just where I hang mine
Life is a quarry you can dig all you want too
Rockin' jumpin' ball go up or down
And you can burn your brain cells out just trying to get higher
But you'll find the highest place is underground
They've got you like the moon has got the tide
You say your drifting babe you're going for a ride
You say one day soon we will all stand as brothers
[G]Till then I guess we'll [A7]just stand around[G] [C] [G]
Enjoy! This is one of my first attempts at this, comments are definitely welcome.
I really enjoy the lyrics in this song; they may be off a tad bit as they aren't
plastered all over lyric sites.
