Here's an underrated Don Henley song from "Inside Job". Like many of Don's
songs, this is open to various interpretations, but the most obvious is that 
it deals with grieving for a friend's suicide. Great lyrics, good song. The
chord progression is a lot like Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here", but the
two songs are otherwise worlds apart.

I'm not 100% sure of the ending chord on the bridge, but I can vouch for the 
accuracy of the rest of the song.

Damn It, Rose

Written by Don Henley and Stan Lynch

Chords used: Am, F, Dm7, F, G, Gsus2, Gm, D# and G#

The main verse riff is Em / G twice, then Em / Am7 / C / D 
(the G alternates with Gsus2). 

Listen to the record for the timing.

Am           F   
Maybe just a good night's sleep
Am                             F
Would've changed your troubled mind
Am                              Dm7   
From that rather permanent decision
F                G / Gsus2 
So tragic - so unkind

Am                      F
Now pain is what you've given
Am                       F 
And sleep is what you'll get
Am                          Dm7
So far away from that sweet baby child
C                         (don't play D here)
Who hardly knew you yet... 

Interlude: just strum the same pattern as for the verses
Am / F
Am / F

Am                        F
Now he'll grow up to be a fighter
Am                     F
Full of anger, full of shame
Am                              Dm7
Just like all the other haunted children
F                     G / Gsus2 
Who wonder why they came -

Am                         F 
And he'll be in and out of trouble
Am                         F  
Until he stands or till he falls
Am                         Dm7
But there will always be a shadow there
F                                  Am      F      Am     F 
No matter how it goes...Damn it, Rose.

Gm                      F 
Is this another cryptic message,
Gm                     F 
Or some kind of cosmic quiz?
Gm                        D#  
If there's a lesson to be learnt from this,
Eb                 (Not sure, but I think it's directly back to Em)
I don't know what it is -

Interlude (same as the above)
Am / F
Am / F

Am                        F
You could've given us the finger
Am                            F
Much more constructively than that
Am                      Dm7
Now I sit here with the MTV
F                        G / Gsus2
And your bloated Burmese cat

Am                         F
We're being treated to the wisdom
Am                       F 
Of some puffed-up little fart
Am                   Dm7  
Doing exactly what I used to:
Pretensions to anarchy and art -

Am                          F 
He speaks the language of a warrior
Am                          F 
He mounts his misinformed attack
Am                           Dm7 
He wears the clothes of a dissenter
But there's a logo on his back...

Am                  F
And it's a hollow rebellion,
Am                     F
Like rebellions mostly are
Am                       Dm7   
It's just another raging tempest
In a jar...

Am                      F
And the seasons keep on changing,
Am                         F 
And the wind blows hot and cold -
Am                                 Dm7
Wish that you were here with us to watch this tide
As it ebbs and flows....
F        Am        F       Am       F      
Damn it, Rose.

Coda: play Em / G repeatedly and fade out.

There you have it! If anyone can figure out the missing chord, please let me
