Subject: Chords to "Rosemary" by the Grateful Dead

Here are the chords to the Grateful Dead's song "Rosemary".
Lyrics by Robert Hunter/Music by Jerry Garcia.
>From the album "Aoxomoxoa".
Chords figured by Insane Carnation.  catfood3@ix.netcom.com

Upon listening to this song the lyrics are fuzzy due to the wonderful 
filter on the vocals, giving it that creepy haunting sound.  i have found 
no less than three different "official" words to the first line, some 
funnier than others.  "Swath of heaven..." to (what i hear) "Scents of 
heather...", the one here is from Hunter's book _Box of Rain_.  That, to 
me, is the final word, aye?
	i also found that the chords listed in a certain music book are 
very close, but not exact.  Perhaps neither are mine, but here they are.
As always, corrections are welcome...

E (7th fret)		   D (5th fret)
Her boots were of leather, a breath of cologne
A		   Bm	       A	 E	
Her mirror was the window, she sat quite alone.
E		   F#	
All around her the garden then grew
A	    Bm	       A	   E
Scarlet and purple and crimson and blue.

E			     D	
She came and she went and at last went away
A	       Bm	       A       E		 	
Her garden was sealed when the flowers decayed.
E			    F#	
On the wall of the garden a legend did say:
 A	    Bm	      A		       Bm
"No one may come here since no one may stay_____."
