Hey, um, I know not a lot of people listen to this kind of "ancient" Wilco like I do but
was playing around on my guitar and the words just sort of popped into my head... and
works perfectly with the album version... the song is from "Being There," possibly one 
my favourite Wilco albums. Maybe second to Yankee Hotel Foxtrot... but yeah, here you go,
unadulterated country.

[Intro]
D     F#     G     D
A     G      D

[Chorus 1]
       D                       F#
You're trying my patience, try pink carnations
    G                     D
Red roses and yellow daffodils

[Chorus 2]
A                         G                   D
Don't forget the flowers, someday, I know you will

[Verse 1]
D                                F#
Displayers of affection and all good intentions,
G                              D
Why don't you just send me the bill

[Chorus 2]
A                         G                   D        Eb
Don't forget the flowers, someday, I know you will

[Bridge]
E
Lately you've been taking me
E                  C     G
Way too seriously, ooooooooh
Bm
I can't ever explain why
F#                      G      D
I don't feel your pain, ooooooooh

[Solo] thing ! Play the verse riff
D F# G D
A G D

[Verse 2]
D                   F#
I left you behind, I know it's been a long time but
G            D
I'm not over you

[Chorus 2]
A                         G                 D
Don't forget the flowers, someday, I hope I do

[Chorus 1]
D                             F#
You're tryin' my patience, try pink carnations
    G                     D
Red roses and yellow daffodils

[Chorus 2]
A                         G  (play this G for four bars instead of two)
Don't forget the flowers, someday
G        D
I know I will
A                         G                 D     Eb
Don't forget the flowers, someday, I know I will

[Outro]
E     E     C     G
Bm    F#    G     D

And you're done. :]
Hope you enjoy.

yeah, old wilco is awesome!
chords sound great and the solo is probably more advanced in the real song but no biggie
know of any tabs/chords for other 'being there' tunes such as say you muss me or red-eyed and blue or especially dreamer in my dreams?
thanks a lot though man

I was trying to figure out the chords for Outtamind (Outtasight) the other day, and I think I've gotten a few of them... I'll work on finding more of Being there... it's too great to go untabbed.
Isn't there a "Say You Miss Me" tab on here? or does it suck ?
