All I did was transposed it to the key Eric Heatherly sings it in and added
two F# which are played after the lyrics as noted.


       FLOWERS ON THE WALL   Eric Heatherly


B                                G#m
I keep hearing you're concerned about my happiness
     C#7                                   F#
But all that thought you've given me is conscience I guess
      B                             G#m
If I were walking in your shoes I wouldn't worry none
       C#7                                            F#
While you and your friends are worrying 'bout me I'm having lots of fun

Chorus

             G#m                                              F#
   Counting flowers on the wall, that don't bother me at all
    G#m                                                  F#
   Playing solitaire 'til dawn, with a deck of fifty-one
   G#m         F#
   Smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kan-Kangaroo
                  G           F         G
   Now don't tell me   I've nothing to do  1.) go to 2nd verse 
                                           2.) E F#   E F#    E F#  to 3rd verse
                                           3.) go to ending

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 doing fine
C#7                              F#
You can always find me here and having quite a time

Go to chorus

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
Go to chorus
ENDING:
E          F#     E             F#    C   G
Don't tell me   I've nothin' to do
