    Intro: [D] [A] [G] [D]

    [D] Well when you're sittin [A] there in your [G] silk upholstered [D] chair
    [D] Talkin to some [A] rich folk that you [G] know [D]
    [D] Well I hope you won’t see [A] me in my [G] ragged compa[D]ny
    [D] You know I could [A] never be a[G]lone [D]

    [D] Take me [A] down little Suzie take me [D] down
    [A] I know you think you're the queen of the under[D]ground
    [D7] And you can [G] send me dead flowers every [D] morning [D7]
    [G] Send me dead flowers by the [D] mail [D7]
    [G] Send me dead flowers at my [D] wedding
    [D] And I won’t forget to put [A] roses on your [G] grave [D]

    [D] Well when you're sittin [A] back in your [G] rose pink Cadi[D]llac
    [D] Makin bets on [A] Kentucky Derby [G] day [D]
    [D] Well I'll be in my basement [A] room with a [G] needle and a [D] spoon
    [D] And another girl can [A] take my pain a[G]way [D]

    [D] Take me [A] down little Suzie take me [D] down
    [A] I know you think you're the queen of the under[D]ground
    [D7] And you can [G] send me dead flowers every [D] morning [D7]
    [G] Send me dead flowers by the [D] mail [D7]
    [G] Send me dead flowers at my [D] wedding
    [D] And I won’t forget to put [A] roses on your [G] grave [D]

    Instrumental Play a verse (first four lines)

    [D] Take me [A] down little Suzie take me [D] down
    [A] I know you think you're the queen of the under[D]ground
    [D7] And you can [G] send me dead flowers every [D] morning [D7]
    [G] Send me dead flowers by the U.S. [D] mail [D7]
    [G] Say it with dead flowers at my [D] wedding
    [D] And I won’t forget to put [A] roses on your [G] grave [D]
    [D] And I won’t forget to put [A] roses on your [G] grave [D]

Great choice Paddy, definitely one of the Stones' best. Adapting Townes Van Zandt's version to ukulele is on my long list of projects (http://youtu.be/NBwC7Qzljso).

I have been playing this since last year, I was going to submit it for our Country Music night. It has a nice twang to it and to my knowledge we had on covered the Stones. Awesome song choice.
