If unsure how to play the picking pattern with the words of the song go to the video on youtube:
                        - Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson storytellers Flesh and Blood 
to see how Cash did it  

"Flesh And Blood"

[Verse 1]

G                C
Beside a Singin' Mountain Stream 
G
Where the Willow grew
       C                   G
Where the Silver Leaf of Maple
         A7              D7
Sparkled in the Mornin' Dew
  G                 C
I braided Twigs of Willows
        G             
Made a String of Buckeye Beads;
     C                   G          
But Flesh And Blood need Flesh And Blood
     C                G
And you're the one I need
C                     G        
Flesh And Blood need Flesh And Blood
    C                 G   
And you're the one I need.

[Verse 2]
                   C  
I leaned against a Bark of Birch
     G                      
And I breathed the Honey Dew
        C                     G
I saw a North-bound Flock of Geese
          A7          D7
Against a Sky of Baby Blue
G           C
Beside the Lily Pads
            G              
I carved a Whistle from a Reed;
        C                G 
Mother Nature's quite a Lady
    C                 G
But you're the one I need
C                     G           
Flesh And Blood need Flesh And Blood
     C                G
And you're the one I need.

[Verse 3]
                 C
A Cardinal sang just for me
      G         
And I thanked him for the Song
        C                 G 
Then the Sun went slowly down the West
    A7              D7
And we had to move along
G                      C  
These were some of the things
            G 
On which my Mind and Spirit feed;
     C                    G
But Flesh And Blood need Flesh And Blood
     C                G
And you're the one I need
C                    G 
Flesh And Blood need Flesh And Blood
     C               G
And you're the one I need.

[Verse 4]

[SPOKEN] (Play chords single not strumming or picking pattern just play each chord once)

                      C
So when this Day was ended
     C
I was very satisfied
    C           G
But I knew everything I touched
      A7               D7
Would wither and would die
     G                C
And Love is all that will remain
     G
And grow from all these Seed;

[SUNG] (back to the picking pattern and how cash played it)

       C                   G
Mother Nature's quite a Lady
     C               G
But you're the one I need
C                    G  
Flesh And Blood need Flesh And Blood
    C                 G
And you're the one I need.
