Bed Of Roses
Capo on 3

[Intro]
G D G D (2x)

[Verse 1]
 G
Sitting here wasted and wounded
           D
This old piano
        G
Trying hard to capture the moment
                D
This morning I don't know
          F#m                       G
'Cause a bottle of vodka is still lodged in my head
           D
And some blond gave me nightmares
                         G
Think she's still in my bed
       G                     A                         D
As I dream about movies they won't make of me when I'm dead

[Verse 2]
        G
With an ironclad fist
                                D
I wake up, and French kiss the morning
            G
While some marching band keepsits own beat
                      D
In my head while we're talking
      F#m                         G
About all of the things, that I long to believe
       D
About love, the truth, what you mean to me
          G
And the truth is
 G          A           D   D  A A*
Baby, you're all that I need

[Refrain 1]
         Bm Bm
I wanna lay
     A         G     D
You down in a bed of roses
       Bm  Bm
For tonite
    A         G     D
I sleep on a bed of nails
               G
Oh, I want to be
          D
Just as close as
     G    D
The Holy Ghost is
     Bm  A   G  G
And lay you down
G      G*    D
  On a bed of roses

[Verse 3]
          G
Well I'm so far away
                           D
Step that I take is on my way home
        G
King's ransom in dimes
                                      D
Given each night to see through this payphone
         F#m
Still I run out of time
         G
Or it's hard to get through
          D
Till the bird on the wire
Flies me back to you
      G
I'll just close my eyes, whisper
 G     A             D  D A A*
Baby, blind love is true

[Refrain 2]      
     Bm Bm
I wanna lay
     A         G     D
You down in a bed of roses
       Bm  Bm
For tonite
    A         G     D
I sleep on a bed of nails
               G
Oh, I want to be
          D
Just as close as
     G    D
The Holy Ghost is
     Bm  A   G  G
And lay you down
G      G*    D     A
  On a bed of roses

[Bridge]
           G
Well this hotel bar hangover
  A                        D
Whiskey's gone dry the barkeeper's wig's crooked
And she's giving me the eye
   G
I might have said yeah
       G             A          D  D A   A*
But I laughed so hard I think I died, uh yeah!...

[Solo] 
Bm A G D (3x) Bm A G G G G* D

[Verse 4]
        G
Now as you close your eyes
                        D
Know I'll be thinking about you
          G
While my mistress she calls me
                         D
To stand in her spotlight again
           G
Tonite, I won't be alone
                                      D
But you know that don't mean I'm not lonely
          Bm          A             G
I've got nothing to prove for it's you
          G       D   A
That I'd die to defend

[Refrain 3]
         Bm Bm
I wanna lay
     A         G     D
You down in a bed of roses
       Bm  Bm
For tonite
    A         G     D
I sleep on a bed of nails
               G
Oh, I want to be
          D
Just as close as
     G    D
The Holy Ghost is
     Bm  A   G  G G
And lay you down
         Bm Bm
I wanna lay
     A         G     D
You down in a bed of roses
       Bm  Bm
For tonite
    A         G  D
I sleep on a be...ed of nails!
           G
I want to be
          D
Just as close as
     G    D
The Holy Ghost is!
 Bm  A   G ( Bb)
Lay you down
(G)   ( G*)   D
    The bed of roses
