I play this song in "B", the way Eric plays it, but if you want to make
things easier on ya...Capo 2nd fret and substitute these chords...
     to
B    ->   A
G#m  ->   F#m
C#7  ->   B7
F#   ->   E
E    ->   D



Intro:  G#m (strum in-between lead guitar)

B                           G#m
I keep hearin' your concern about my happiness
    C#7                                    F#
But all that thought you've given me is, conscience I guess
      B                            G#m
If I were walkin' in your shoes, I wouldn't worry none
      C#7                                             F#
While you and your friends are worryin''bout me, I'm havin'lots of fun
  

--Chorus
           G#m                                              G#m B G#m
   Countin' flowers on the wall, that don't bother me at all
           G#m                                          G#m B G#m
   Playin' solitaire 'til dawn, with a deck of fifty-one
            E
   Smokin' cigarettes and watchin' Captain Kangaroo
                  F#     E
   Now don't tell me 
                  F#     E
   I've nothin' to do


      B                                 G#m
Last night I dressed in tails, pretended I was on the town
    C#7                              F#
As long as I can dream it's hard to slow this swinger down
  B                                       G#m
So please don't give a thought to me, I'm really doin' fine
C#7                             F#
You can always find me here and havin' quite a time


--Chorus
           G#m                                              G#m B G#m
   Countin' flowers on the wall, that don't bother me at all
           G#m                                          G#m B G#m
   Playin' solitaire 'til dawn, with a deck of fifty-one
            E
   Smokin' cigarettes and watchin' Captain Kangaroo
                  F#     E
   Now don't tell me 
                  F#     E
   I've nothin' to do


--Solo ->  G#m        E     F# E   F# E   F# E   F# E


      B                            G#m
It's good to see you, I must go, I know I look a fright
 C#7                     F#
Anyway, my eyes are not accustomed to this light
 B                             G#m
And my shoes are not accustomed to this hard concrete
C#7                              F#
So I must go back to my room and make my day complete


--Chorus
           G#m                                              G#m B G#m
   Countin' flowers on the wall, that don't bother me at all
           G#m                                          G#m B G#m
   Playin' solitaire 'til dawn, with a deck of fifty-one
            E
   Smokin' cigarettes and watchin' Captain Kangaroo
                  F#     E
   Now don't tell me 
                  F#     E
   I've nothin' to do
                  F#     E
   Now don't tell me
                  F#     E 
   I've nothin' to do

--Ending ->  G#m  (slow strum as in the Intro)

This is more of a lesson more than a correction.
It's a lesson for all those people who try
To strum this and wonder why they can't get
it to sound right. In this and many other country music songs, there is a
playing form called hybrid picking involed.
To do this takes practice at first and this
is a good song to start with.

Hold the pick between your thumb and index finger.
Use your middle and ring fingers to pick
the D and G strings.
Use your pick to pick the bass notes on the E and A strings
Play the chords lick this.

B Gm Cm F#
e-------- ------- ------- -------
B-------- ------- ------- -------
G---4-4-- --4-4-- --6-6-- --3-3--
D---4-4-- --6-6-- --6-6-- --4-4--
A--2----- ---6--- -4----- ---4---
E----2--- -4----- ---4--- -2-----

Play the chords like this through the Verse
Repeat playing like this until the chord changes.
Repeat each one about 4 times.
Remember use your middle and ring fingers the pluck the D and G strings.
peace out.

Sorry I just notice something in my last correction.
It's not Gm and Cm. but it is G#m And C#m.
I was a little typo on my part, But the rest of the lesson/song is right.
Sorry again.

and yet I find another mistake ihn my correction. A simple one as in
the last one.
You Repeat the Hybrid picking about 2 times per chord. That's it.
Sorry yet again.

For any one confused by this rambeling the chords are correct. But
when I play it I use F#7 instead of F#. Either way works, just
adding my 2 cents to a good tab. And don't worry too much about
hybrid picking in this song with practice its easy as it is the same
for all the chords. Have fun!
