Bed Of Roses Acoustic
[Verse 1]

Bb                                            F
Sitting here wasted and wounded at this old piano
       Bb                                          F
Trying hard to capture the moment, this morning I don't know
          Am                       Bb 
'Cause a bottle of vodka's still lodged in my head and some
F                           Fsus4           F           Bb
Blonde gave me nightmares, think that she's still in my bed
                              C                          F
As I dream about movies they won't make of me when I'm dead


[Verse 2]

(as verse 1)

With an iron clad fist I wake up and frnch kiss the morning

While some marching band keeps its own beat in my head while were talking

About all of the things that I long to believe

About love, the truth and what you mean to me

Bb                             C           F 
And the truth is, baby you're all that I need


[Chorus]

(Richie sings backround vocals three steps higher)
          Dm       C        Bb        F
I want to lay you down in a bed of roses
     Dm         C        Bb      F
For tonight I sleep on a bed of nails
            Bb          F           Bb     F
Oh, I wanna be just as close as the Holy Ghost is
     Dm   C   Bb               F 
And lay you down on a bed of roses


[Verse 3]

Well I'm so far away, each step that I take's on my way home

A king's ransom in dimes, I'd give each night to see through 
this payphone

Still I run out if time it's hard to get through

Till the bird on the wire flies me back to you

I'll just close my eyes, and whisper baby blind love is true


[Chorus]
 
          Dm       C        Bb        F
I want to lay you down in a bed of roses
     Dm         C        Bb      F
For tonight I sleep on a bed of nails
            Bb          F           Bb     F
Oh, I wanna be just as close as the Holy Ghost is
     Dm   C   Bb               F 
And lay you down on a bed of roses


[Bridge]

C          Bb                       C
Well this hotel bar's hangover whiskey's ran dry
           F 
The bar keeper's wig's crooked and she's givin' me the eye
        Bb                               C          F
Well I might have said yes, but I laughed, till I died



[Interlude]
 
 Dm   C   Bb   F    x4

(same rhythm as the chorus)


[Breakdown]

        Bb                                                 F
Now as you close your eyes, you know I'll be thinking about you
           Bb                                               F
While my mistress, she calls me to stand in her spotlight again
             Bb                                            F
Tonight, I won't be alone, to know that don't mean I'm not lonely
          Dm          C            Bb                     F
I've got nothin' to prove for it's you that I'd die to defend


[Chorus]
 
          Dm       C        Bb        F
I want to lay you down in a bed of roses
     Dm         C        Bb      F
For tonight I sleep on a bed of nails
            Bb          F           Bb     F
Oh, I wanna be just as close as the Holy Ghost is
     Dm   C   Bb               F 
And lay you down on a bed of roses

          Dm       C        Bb        F
I want to lay you down in a bed of roses
     Dm         C        Bb      F
For tonight I sleep on a bed of nails
            Bb          F           Bb     F
Oh, I wanna be just as close as the Holy Ghost is
     Dm   C   Bb               F 
And lay you down on a bed of roses
