Album: The Doors



Intro: Keep strumming Am several times. 
      
    Am
Well, show me the way To the next whiskey bar 
F#m            D7
Oh, don't ask why
F#m            D7 
Oh, don't ask why
Am
Show me the way To the next whiskey bar
F#m            D7 
Oh, don't ask why
F#m            D7 
Oh, don't ask why 
Am
For if we don't find The next whiskey bar,
F#m                D7
I tell you we must die
F#m                D7 
I tell you we must die
F#m                                        D7 
I tell you, I tell you I tell you we must die 

(drop-down organ riff)

F                                   E
Oh, moon of Alabama We now must say goodbye 
      G  G7          C  C7    C

Well, show me the way To the next little girl 
Oh, don't ask why 
Oh, don't ask why
Show me the way To the next little girl 
Oh, don't ask why

firts of all your Eb chord is actually a D# chord because you take a C Major and bar it and move down one fret

I think, they sing pretty girl, not little girl, but the chords are good work

No they are singing "Show me the way to the next little girl"
Did you kno this song was a remake. It was more of an opera way back in the 20's I believe. The original is "Show us the way to the next little dollar" and "Show us the way to the next pretty boy" By those words they are pretty much *****s I believe. All the other lyrics are jus the same =)
