            [D]  chorus:

G D (give it a Dsus4 after " the one you're with")
and I think that's about it... strumming it correctly is another story! :)
Anyone have the words to this one? I could arrange the chords (or you could)
around the words and make this look nice for ...
Hopefully these chords are right... feels wierd typing it in without a guitar
to check it on. :)

These are the basic chords... a friend showed me this; it sounds right:
verse (repeat a few times):

    [G(7]  ^   [D(5]  ^     [G/D]^[D]
      |     |     |-> I've always played this as a G/D chord [ - - 0 4 3 3]

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]                                                                                                                      

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]    [G]    [C]    [G]    [C]    [E]                                                                                                                    
	-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...

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

I found this on the web...
