The Flag Chords

   
Flag by the Barenaked Ladies
From the album: Gordon (1992 Sire Warner Bros.)
Haunting melody.
 
The picking pattern I use for a D chord is the following and can be use for
all the other chords with variations when considering 5 and 6 string chords:
4-3-1-3-2 picked through twice where each chord is indicated.
 
Em or Em7?  It's your call.
