E
I don't need no one's opinion
On the matter concerning my dress.
I was raised in a clinic down in Oklahoma,
There were many things I did not possess.
A
I never complained, because my father said,
"Son you'll get your chance before you're my age".
        E
Then he took me upstairs and gave me this suit
Written all over his face
          B
He said, "Others may come and others may go,
          A
But that suit will be around wherever you're goin'"
E                           A
Three button hand me down
E                           A
Three button hand me down

(bass intro)1x

E
I had my fair share of neat women,
But they came between me and my suit.
That was a filly from Boston, a barmaid from Houston,
Not forgetting the one in Detroit.
               A
They said, "We like you boy and we think you're sweet,
But can't you lose your suit?"
        E
I said, "No, no, no, no, you can't do that to me"
I remember what my father said:
          B
He said, "Others may come and others may go,
          A
But that suit will be around wherever you're goin'"
E                          A
Three button hand me down, ha ha,
E                          A
Three button hand me down

(simple, bluesy solo)

E
I've never been a tidy dresser
And the fold in my trousers it ain't straight.
Still I know a good cloth when I see one.
That's why I'm clad in this gray flannel suit.
A
Sometimes I wonder if I should visit a tailor
And get myself a smooth outfit.
       E
Then I remember what my father said to me.
I'll make you from the open road
          B
He said, "Others may come and others may go,
          A
But that suit will be around wherever you go"
E                           A
Three button hand me down,
E                           A
Three button hand me down

G|--------------------------|
D|--------------------------| some type of funky
A|-7-7-------5-5-----5------| bass line based on E
E|-------5h7------7------7--|

If you want to play along with the Black Crowes' live version of this 
song, you'll just have to play the exact same thing one step lower.
E->D     A->G      B->A           simple enough
