NOTE:   [PALM MUTING, p.m.]
        To reproduce the sloppy sound of the song keep hitting the lower
        strings palm muted (E A [D]).For the higher strings the muting 
        can be loosened to get a slightly ringing sound.
        Listen to the song to figure out the rhythm.


Verse 1: p.m.
--------
               G               C
Dear Susan, I know you love me so
              G             C
But I want to hear it in my ear
                 G                   C
You know I'd be there working at my craft
           G             Em
Had it not been for the draft
            F                G
Dry up your tear and feel no fear
                 C           G           C (let ring)
You're here with me like I'm there with you


Chorus: p.m.
-------
  F

Verse 2: p.m.
--------
              G               C
I'm writing a note beneath a tree
                 G                 C   
The smell of the rain on the greenery
                 G                      c       
Our fathers have painfully lost their way
                 G               Em
That's why, my love, I'm here today
               F                     G
Hear me when I say there will come a day
                C        G        C (let ring)
When kings will know and love can grow


Chorus: p.m.

  F
To Susan on the West Coast waiting

Susan, I know you love me so
                G             C
But I'd like to hear it in my ear
                G                   C
You know I'd be there working at my craft
           G             Em 
Had it not been for the draft
            F                G 
Dry up your tear and feel no fear
                 C           G          C (let ring)
You're here with me like I'm there with you
