In article  you write:
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

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...


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
