Dogwood  Whiskey Myers

I saw this song live and this is how he played it then. I know its pretty
simple, but this is how he did it.
As of when this I tabbed this out,the lyrics are not on the internet
so there may be some mistakes. I did my best but there are some
spots where I have no clue what he says, mainly in last chorus. Once
official (or better) lyrics come out, I will make corrections as needed.
Furthermore, he does some hammer-ons and pull-offs on the high E string on
the D chord. I didnt add those in, so just do them as you see fit.

No Capo
Intro: Em C G D x2
[Em]Dancing on the cr[C]eek bank
[G]Blue eyes and aubu[D]rn hair
[Em]It was the best years[C] of our lives

[Em]And I was going n[C]owhere fast
[G]So I just hung ar[D]ound
[Em]By the next time I see[C]n ya
[G]Your love had turne[D]d cold
[Em]So I guess you broke m[C]y heart
[D]Back where the dogwood flower[C]s grow
( Tab from: )

That April m[C]oon
It c[G]ould have been forever
Darling t[D]hat we stayed together

The dogwood flowers[G] grow[D]
The dogwood flower[Em]s grow[C] [G] [D]
Em C (one strum of each of these chords)
The dogwood flowers grow
