[Blues it up in the first verse by adding these
where appropriate]


E5
Sitting here wishing on the scenery floor[?]
     G5                      E5
Just wishing that I had just something you wore
G5     E5          G5     E5
Put it on when I'm oh lonely
         Am            C         D          E5
Will you take off your dress and send it to me?

I miss your kissing and I miss your head
And the letter that you're writing doesn't mean you're not dead
Run outside in the desert heat
Make your dress all wet and send it to me

I miss your soup and I miss your bread
And the letter that you're writing doesn't mean you're not dead
So spill your breakfast and drip your wine
Just wear that dress when you di-i-ie

Sitting here wishing on the scenery floor
Just wishing that I had just something you wore
Bloody your hands on a cactus tree
Wipe it on your dress and send it to me

Sitting here wishing on the scenery floor
Just wishing that I had just something you wore

[Outro (real tricky!):]

your lyrics are kinda strange to me. I think these ones are right:

Sitting here wishing on a cement floor
Just wishing that I had just something you wore

I put it on when I go lonely
Will you take off your dress and send it to me?

I miss your kissin' and I miss your head
And a letter in your writing doesn't mean you're not dead
Run outside in the desert heat
Make your dress all wet and send it to me

I miss your soup and I miss your bread
And a letter in your writing doesn't mean you're not dead
So spill your breakfast and drip your wine
Just wear that dress when you're dying

P I X I E S

Sitting here wishing on a cement floor
Just wishing that I had just something you wore

Bloody your hands on a cactus tree
Wipe it on your dress and send it to me

Sitting here wishing on a cement floor
Just wishing that I had just something you wore

It goes from E5 to a G major third chord (just G and B- it's a whole lot easier to play from the E5, just add the G note with your second finger, while keeping your first on the B that you play in the E5 chord) not a G5. And it should be D7, not D.

My thanks to Medley for the badly needed lyrics correction. One more thing though: i believe the line is "Just wear that dress when you dine" Rhymes with wine. He does say it funny. Good old Charles.
