[Verse 1]

G             D      G             C
Death valley queen where have you been
             G             Em 
Since they crowned you in glory
        G              D 
Filled your head with dreams
        G             D             G 
But it still goes to show in every desert
           C              G         D         G 
There's a rose that's blooming for all to be seen
               D              G 
I remember you well from that town
         C             G          Em 
You did dwell with the face of an angel
       G          D 
In a dump hot as hell 
         G           D
When I asked for a kiss
      G         C 
You kindly dismissed
       G           D             G
So i lead my poor heart to the slaughter
 D      G      C          D
Tell me dear what did you fear
                 G             C          D 
I'd do you no wrong though no stranger to sin
G                C         G         C 
So death valley queen go marry your king
      G               D            G 
Or an old maid you'll end up for certain 


[Verse 2]
(same as verse 1)

Off I did set on my trail of regret 
Where I thought of you now in your castle and crown 
So I found me a whore with a face just like yours 
After several gallons of porter 
When I awoke, she had scarpered I was broke 
Laying cold in the bed with a whale for a head 
So death valley queen go marry your king 
Or an old maid you'll end up for certain 


[Chorus]

           D     G           C         G         D
Then the ball dropped why everything fell by the way
          D   G           C                 D
As your teardrops were falling I forgot to say 
     G        D          G
That I have always loved you
     G       C           G 
Yeah I have always loved you
     G  D  G C
Yeah I 
     G
Yeah I
         C 
I have always loved you 


[Verse 3]
(same as verse 1)

When I returned downtrodden and burned 
There were billy goats grazing 
Where once you'd be found 
So I hung out to dry 
On this limb for a lie 
Take me back for I'm cursed on the mainland 
Tell me dear what did you fear 
I'd do you no wrong though no stranger to sin 
So death valley queen go marry your king 
Or an old maid you'll end up for certain 
I said death valley queen go marry your king 
And a-roving I'll end up for certain

I love this chord set, it sounds perfect! Just curious if you`ve figured out the little lead sections throughout and maybe a bass line.

Thanks, Awesome work!

Great. Really great. Another one where the chords don't play trough all the way. It's really hard to practice like this, people.
