"Famous Flower Of Manhattan"
set tempo
2nd fret
Famous Flower of Manhattan – Capo on 2nd fret

play between the G note and D open note while playing intro.

|-0-or--0----------x2 then----------5--4-------|
play to which Cmaj7 or C9 chord you prefer

For the G and Cmaj7 during the verses, just fingerpick
between mostly E, D, G, and B string with occasionally
high E. The chords are the same for every verse.

And I found a flower in a field
A field of cars and people; rows of concrete, paint, and steel
Manhattan is where it grew

And I thought to cut it from it's stem
And take it from the cracks between bricks that it lay in
Cmaj7                           G
And save it from city strife
Away from the city life

Then someone they whispered in my ear
A county girl can't be made out of anybody here
Don't touch it, it loves you not
Don’t touch it, it loves you not

Cause blue birds don't fly without their wings
And when we put them in a cage the world can't hear them sing
So selfish when greed sets in
Possession, the king of sin

And people don't ever let you down
Forever find a way to kill whatever life they've found
A heart beat and I want it too
Manhattan is where she grew

So I left and I let the flower be
And yesterday saw the flower on cable TV
Much prettier than here with me
For all of the world to see
Much prettier than here with me

also sounds nice if you leave the capo on the 2nd but leave the top E string as a drone note and play G2 without the top string. it also makes more sense with the fingerpicking from the recording instead of hammering. awesome chords though love this band!
