i like to play the verse chords with as many fingers as i can. (does that make any sense?) i think it allows for a more controled muting. it also sounds good to barre them. of course it also sounds goo to playy the bass part of the verses. it goes like this: Fm Bbm C Fm
repeat that a couple times (words: [Fm]all night long on the broken glass [Bbm]living in a medicine chest [C]mediteromainian hotel back [Fm]sprawled across a roll top desk. etc...) the chorus is like this: [Bbm7]sell me one of those if i shave my head [Eb]get me out of town is what fire ball said [Ab]never trust a man in a blue trench coat [Ab]never drive a car when you're dead [Bm*]Saturday's a festival, Friday's a gem [C]dye your hair yellow and raise your hem [Fm*]follow me to Beulah's on dry creek road [Fm*]i just got to wear the dress that my baby done sowed for the last two Fm chords, i like to play this: (these are straight quarter notes)
