Carnation
(Weller)


Am                   C
  If you gave me a fresh carnation
G                           Bb
  I would only crush it's tender petals
Am                    C
  With me you'll have no escape
G                                     Bb
  And at the same time there'll be nowhere to settle -

Gm                               Eb6
  I trample down all life in my wake
           D                Bm
  I eat it up and take the cake
           E                   Am
  I just avert my eyes to the pain
                D               Am
  Of someone's loss helping my gain


  If you gave me a dream for my pocket
  You'd be plugging in the wrong socket
  With me there's no room for the future
  With me there's no room with a view at all -

Gm                               Eb
  I am out of season all year 'round
                   D               Bm
  Hear machinery roar to my empty sound
             E              Am
  Touch my heart and feel winter
           D                   Cm
  Hold my hand and be doomed forever -

Cm/Bb6/Cm/Bb6/Am/F6/Am/Em7/Fmaj7/G6/E
Piano solo: Am/C/G/Bb (x2)

  If you gave me a fresh carnation
  I would only crush it's tender petals
  With me you'll have now escape
  And at the same time there'll be nowhere to settle.

Gm                                    Eb6
  And if you're wondering by now who I am
            D                Bm
  Look no further than the mirror -
             E                Am
  Because I am the Greed and Fear
              D              Cm
  And every ounce of Hate in you.

Outro: D/Bm/E/Am/D
               Cm/D/Bm/E/Am/D

To make a 6 chord you have to put the tonic note ( "E" in this case ) two step down... other words, you must change the E for a C

|---3---|
|---4---|
|---3---|
|---5---|
|---3---|----> here is the change

(sorry i was tired)

Correction:

For the Eb6:

To make a 6 chord you have to add a note based on changing the tonic note ( "Eb" in this case ) 3 half step down... other words, you must change the Eb for a C

|---3---|
|---4---|
|---3---|
|---5---|
|---3---|----> here is the change
|---x---|

.....based on this....

|---5---|
|---6---|
|---5---|
|---7---|
|---5---|
|---x---|

|---3---|
|---4---|
|---3---|
|---5---|
|---3---|
|---x---|

Other notes may be more complex, so I looked for variations:

Bb6:
|---3---|
|---3---|
|---3---|
|---3---|
|---5---|
|---3---|
