                Queen - "Drowse" (Acoustic Arrangement)
Words & Music by Roger Taylor
Arranged by Matt Notley
November 2001

This is my own interpretation of an arrangement of the song designed to be played by two acoustic
guitars together. If you want to play it solo, then just follow the arrangement for either guitar and
decide for yourself which parts sound best. The guitar parts are listed below together, with Guitar 1
on top and Guitar 2 on the bottom.

Verse 2:
(As Verse 1)

It's the fantastic drowse of the afternoon Sundays,
That bored you to rages of tears.
It's the unending pleadings to waste all your good times,
In thoughts of your middle-aged years.
It's a vertical hold, all the things that you're told,
For the every day hero it all turns to zero,
And there's all the more reason for living and dying,
When you're young and your troubles are all very small.

Verse 3:
(As Verse 1 & 2)

Never wanted to be the boy next door,
Always thought I'd be something more,
But it ain't easy for a small-town boy,
It ain't easy at all.
Thinking it right, doing it wrong,
It's easier from an armchair.
Waves of alternatives wash at my sleepiness,
Have my eggs poached for breakfast, I guess.


Outro:
                                                                 slow down
