Queen - Drowse acoustic tabs ver. 1

Queen - "Drowse" (Acoustic Arrangement) ======================================= Words & Music by Roger Taylor Arranged by Matt Notley matt_notley@hotmail.com November 2001 This is my own interpretation of an arrangement of the song designed to be played by two acoustic guitars together. If you want to play it solo, then just follow the arrangement for either guitar and decide for yourself which parts sound best. The guitar parts are listed below together, with Guitar 1 on top and Guitar 2 on the bottom.

Verse 2: ======== (As Verse 1) It's the fantastic drowse of the afternoon Sundays, That bored you to rages of tears. It's the unending pleadings to waste all your good times, In thoughts of your middle-aged years. It's a vertical hold, all the things that you're told, For the every day hero it all turns to zero, And there's all the more reason for living and dying, When you're young and your troubles are all very small.
