These chords are not necessarily correct, I picked all this up
by ear, so I could be wrong.  If you find errors, or want to
make any other comments, please e-mail me.  This is a great
song - thanks to STP for it, and hope you enjoy playing it!

 E F#m G    Am     Am9    D Dsus4 C/G D11 Bm Bb Em

Basic progressions:
E  F#m  G  F#m(sus4)
Am  D Dsus4 D  C/G  D Dsus4 D  Am  D Dsus4 D  C/G  D11
(note: Am here can have the 9th added for emphasis, to Am9,
and barre chords can be substituted for different effect...
I have not tabbed out all the barre chords above - if you can
play them, you probably know them already)
Bm  G  F#m  G  D  C/G  Bb  Bb  Em  Em  Bb  Bb  Em  Em  Bb  Bb  Em

Am     D     C      D11


E  F#m  G  F#m  x2
E              F#m
She lives in a bungalow
    G             F#m         E
She kills me with rose garden thorns
    F#m       G   F#m
She waits for me
E            F#m
My love is unusual
     G            F#m       E
it's painted with roses and thorns
     F#m        G  F#m
with her I'm complete


Am  D     Dsus4 D   C/G
She lives by    the wall
    D     Dsus4 D   Am
And waits by    the door
    D     Dsus4 D   C/G
She walks in    the sun
To me
Am  D     Dsus4 D   C/G
She lives by    the wall
    D     Dsus4 D   Am
And waits by    the door
    D     Dsus4 D   C/G
She walks in    the sun
To me


E          F#m      G
Visions of Mexico seduce me
   F#m        E       F#m    G   F#m
it goes to my head so carefully
E           F#m         G
Memories of candles and incense
    F#m          E
and all of these things...
  F#m    G    F#m
remember these?


Bm  G           F#m
She comforts me when
    G            D
the candles blow out
    C/G            Bb
The cake has grown mold
but the memories are sweet
The laughter's all gone
but the memories are mine
The Mexican princess is
out of my life

Am     D     C      D11
Play twice
Then play over chorus
(play arpeggiation total of seven times over lyrics...
play normal chord progression for chorus if playing chords)
Repeat, fade out...

I think the verses and opening has the F#M and the G both played with the E,B, and high E string left open. I don't know if that's suspended or whatever you call it, but it sounds closer to me.

The correct way of playing the intro chords is to keep the top 2 strings open and play the 6th string with your thumb. Alternately you can play the last chord (G) with the D fingered at the 3rd fret. If you watch the greatest hits DVD you'll see that this is the way Dean fingers it - although I personally prefer the open string better and that's the way I hear it on the studio version. Maybe he changed the fingering live???
