Love is a Rose ~ Neil Young

Key of G major with standard I, IV, V chords
Fill parts are in E pentatonic since its G major, modal notes dont sound that good with it.

[Intro Bass]
e|-------------------|
B|-------------------|
G|-------------------|
D|-------------------|
A|-10-8--------------|
E|-------10-9-8-6--3-|

[Chorus]
G                    C         G
Love is a rose but you better not pick it
                        D     G
It only grows when it's on the vine.
G                            C         G
A handful of thorns and you'll know you've missed it
                            D          G
You lose your love when you say the word "mine".

[Verse]
C                G
I wanna see what's never been seen,
D               G
I wanna live that age old dream.
C                G
Come on, lads, we can go together
D               G
Let's take the best right now,

Take the best right now.
(Funky cool different bassline)

C              G
I wanna go to an old hoe-down
D            G
Long ago in a western town.
C                 G
Pick me up cause my feet are draggin'
D               G
Give me a lift and I'll hay your wagon.

[Chorus]
G                    C         G
Love is a rose but you better not pick it
                        D     G
It only grows when it's on the vine.
G                            C         G
A handful of thorns and you'll know you've missed it
                            D          G
You lose your love when you say the word "mine".
G
Mine, mine.

G        C  G         D  G
Love is a rose, love is a rose.
G        C  G         D  G
Love is a rose, love is a rose.

[Ending]

Second verse ("I Wanna go to an old hoe down ...") is played with the same chords as the chorus!
After that there is a Harmonica interlude with the verses chord progression. (Decade Version)

It's "...come on, lass, let's go together, let's take the best right now". Unless you prefer lads.

Your version is absolutely perfect! Thank you! Also, if anyone wants to perform this in a higher key just use your capo and then play these notes. It'll raise the octives according to where you've put your capo.
