UPDATED: 04/10/2007
I really struggled with the outro but I'm guessing
that's what you want so...

yeah she had another quality
The way you used to look
and I know, you never read a book

A
 Just the way that her hair
                      E
fell down around her face

The fills stay about the same and then you get the bridge:


E
Yes and your rich old man
                       B
you know he'd call her
B               
a dead ringer

E|-------------|
B|-7/9\7-------|
G|-6/8\6-4-----|
D|---------6-6-|
A|-------------|
E|-------------|


You got the same command 
                       F#m
Plus your mother was a Jazz singer

Repeat last two staves to fade.
I don't think I've missed anything.
The first solo is similar to the Intro so
you should be able to work it out from that.
