Here are the words (from memory) and chords.
(Note that I'm not certain of the placement of the two choruses.)

                   Love the One You're With - Stills

   Intro:  G(7) D(5) G/D D (repeat)

   D           G(7)D(5)     G/D   D
   When you're down, and confused,
                   G(7)  D(5)                G/D D
   and you don't remember who you're talking to,
         G(7)   D(5)     G/D D
   concentration, slips away,
                G(7)D(5)         G/D D
   because your baby, is so far away.

   Chorus 1:

                  Bm  A              G      CGCG (see note 1)
   Well there's a rose in the fisted glove,
           Bm        A          G    CGCG
   And the eagle flies with the dove,
              Bm     A                  G
   and if you can't be with the one you love, honey,
   G                   D
   love the one you're with,
   G                   D
   love the one you're with.

   Verse 2:
   Don't be angry, don't be sad,
   and don't sit crying, over good times you've had,
   There's a girl, right next to you
   and she's just waiting, for something to do.

   Chorus 1:
   Chorus 2: (see note 2)

   G  F#   G    F#   G    F#   A    A
   Do doot doot doot doot doot doot doot

   G  F#   G    F#   G    F#   A    A
   Do doot doot doot doot doot doot doot

   A  A  A     A  A  A
   Do do doot, Do do doot

   Chorus 1: (No words, organ lead part)

   Verse 3:
   Turn your heart-ache, right into joy,
   she's a girl, and you're a boy,
   get it together, make it nice,
   you ain't gonna need, any more advice.

   Chorus 1:
   Chorus 2: (see note 2)

   G  F#   G    F#   G    F#   A    A
   Do doot doot doot doot doot doot doot

   G  F#   G    F#   G    F#   A    A
   Do doot doot doot doot doot doot doot

   A  A  A     A  A  A
   Do do doot, Do do doot

Note 1: Play the G chord barred (3 5 5 4 3 3), then play the C chord
        (- 3 5 5 5 -) for the transition CGC you stum the chords once each
Note 2: The chords are strummed 1 time per "doot" (or "do")

>Nevada only has "southern cross", perhaps someone could post the chords
>(unless TAB is necessary) to this song...

Hi again...

The basic chord progression is:


	               F   C                   Dm   C
	If you're down          and confused...

	          Am   G               F
	There's a rose    in a fisted glove...

	                     C    F   C
	Love the one you're with

	                     Dm    C
	Love the one you're with


	Bb                C
	Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do...


The acoustic guitar is actually played in open C tuning, and the lower
strings form sort of a drone throughout.  Low to high, the tuning is

	 C   G   C   G   C   E
	-4  -2  -2   0  +1   0		(deviation from standard)

and the basic riff is then

	005555  004003  002001  000000

Don't ask me how to play the Am-G-F part or the Bb-C in that tuning, though...

Andrew


PS: Incidentally, the Moody Blues' "Question" is also in open C, and uses
the *exact* same pattern under the "it's not the way that you say it" part.
Try it!  The verses go

	          Ebdim Dm      C
	Why do we never get an answer

where Ebdim = 000232	(that's right, the same fingering as D in standard)
      Dm    = 002001
      C     = 000000
