Well i think this is the easiest way to play this song.

V.1

 C           
Sitting here wasted and wounded 
 
 G
at this old piano

 C 
Trying hard to capture

                               G
the moment this morning I don't know 

   D
'Cause a bottle of vodka

  C 
is still lodged in my head 

  G
And some blond gave me nightmares 

                               C
I think that she's still in my bed 

 C
As I dream about movies

 D                             G          D
they won't make of me when I'm dead 


V. 2


 C
With an ironclad fist I wake up and 

               G
French kiss the morning

             C 
While some marching band keeps 

C
its own beat in my head 

G
While we're talking

D                             C
About all of the things that I long to believe

        G  
About love and the truth and 
what you mean to me 

 C                           D           G    D
And the truth is baby you're all that I need


CHORUS : 

Em                D         C       G
I want to lay you down in a bed of roses 

Em           D           C       G
For tonite I sleep on a bed on nails 

           C           G          C     G   
I want to be just as close as the Holy Ghost is 

Em       D   C               G
And lay you down on bed of roses 


(this verse is played the same way as verse 2)

Well I'm so far away 
That each step that I take is on my way home 
A king's ransom in dimes I'd given each night 
Just to see through this payphone 
Still I run out of time 
Or 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
 


C                        D
The hotel bar hangover whiskey's gone dry 

G
The barkeeper's wig's crooked 
And she's giving me the eye 

C
I might have said yeah 
                      D       G
But I laughed so hard I think I died 

C
When you close your eyes 
                            G
Know I'll be thinking about you 
           C 
While my mistress she calls me 
                            G
To stand in her spotlight again
           C   
Tonite I won't be alone 
But you know that don't 
                  G  Em                   D
Mean I'm not lonely I've got nothing to prove 
          C                   G        D
For it's you that I'd die to defend 

CHORUS

definitely the easiest of what's up here for it at the moment, and (for me at least) the only one that sounds right :)

also, it sounds pretty if you fingerpick these chrds from the highest string to the lowest.
