Alt. Tuning: D-A-D-F#-A-D
Capo 2
Chords are formed differently,
I show them at the bottom.

D                         G         D
Once I knew a girl in the hard hard times 
D                          G         D
She made me a shirt out of fives and dimes
          G               D/F#             D/E   Emin11   
Now she's gone but when I wear it she crosses my mind 
           D                             G         D  
And if the best is for the best then the best is unkind


I realized that Illinois was more than I could stand 
They say working's best 'cause poverty is hell on a man 
Now I ride a lazy river through the Mississippi fan
And if the best is for the best then the best can be damned

I spent a few years on the Queen of Spain
She was a leaky little boat that went up in flames       
When the boiler blew some people started naming names 
But if the best is for the best I guess the best is to blame
     
I spent a few more as the Cairo Crown    
A heavyweight wrestler in the Midwest towns    
But I was lonesome for a girl who could pin me down 
They say the best is for the best but that's not what I've found

repeat intro

Now I listen to my sweetheart and I listen to my thirst   
I don't spend time listening to other people's words       
Sometimes they're right most times the reverse    
They say the best is for the best when the best is for the worse

Once I knew a girl in the hard hard times 
She made me a shirt out of fives and dimes   
Now she's gone but when I wear it she crosses my mind     
And if the best is for the best then the best is unkind

Once I knew a girl in the hard hard times 
Once I knew a girl in the hard hard times

Great tuning and chords, but I'm not sure the G chord sounds well there. It sounds better if you use the fifth fret on the lowest note instead of the third.

Nice job though. How the Hell did you get that tuning?!
