[Verse 1]
C                   G
Well, when you're sitting there
        F                C
In your silk upholstered chair
C               G          
Talking to some rich folks 
         F       C
that you know
       C                  G
Well I hope you won't see me
      F      C
In my ragged company
    C            G          F    C
You know I could never be alone

[Chorus]
       G                   
Take me down little susie, 
       C
take me down
G                           
I know you think you're the 
                  C
queen of the underground
            F            
And you can send me dead 
              C
flowers every morning
F                           C
Send me dead flowers by the mail
F                          C
Send me dead flowers to my wedding
      G                   C     
And I won't forget to put roses 
        F        C
on your grave

[Verse 2]
C                   G
Well, when you're sitting back
        F                C
In your rose pink cadillac
C               G       
Making bets on kentucky 
            F       C
derby day
C                   G
I'll be in my basement room
  F                C
With a needle and a spoon
C               G        
And another girl to take 
           F       C
my pain away

[Chorus]
        G                  
Take me down little susie, 
        C
take me down
G                          
I know you think you're the
                   C
 queen of the underground
            F            
And you can send me dead 
              C
flowers every morning
F                           C
Send me dead flowers by the mail
F                          C
Send me dead flowers to my wedding
      G                   C     
And I won't forget to put roses 
        F        C
on your grave
