Verse 1:

	C                        F6
	Holly came from Miami, FLA
	C                               F6
	Hitchhiked her way across the USA
	C                    D
	Plucked her eyebrows on the way
	F                        D
	Shaved her legs and then he was a she
	She says

	C                             F6
	Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
	C                                   F6
	Said hey honey, take a walk on the wild side

Verse 2:

	Candy came from out on the island
	In the backroom she was everybody's darling
	But she never lost her head
	Even when she was giving head
	She says

	Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
	Said hey, babe, take a walk on the wild side
	And the colored girls go
	C                              F6   [L.R. 2X; colored girls 2X]
	Do do-do   do-do do-do-do-do   Do do-do   do-do do-do-do-do
	Dooo...

Verse 3:

	Little Joe never once gave it away
	Everybody had to pay and pay
	A hustle here and a hustle there
	New York City is the place where
	They say

	Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
	Said hey Joe, take a walk on the wild side

Verse 4:

	Sugar Plum Fairy came and hit the streets
	Looking for soul food and a place to eat
	Went to the Apollo, you should have seen him go, go go
	They said

	Hey Sugar, take a walk on the wild side
	I said hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
	All right... huh

Verse 5:

	Jackie is just speeding away
	Thought she was James Dean for a day
	Then I guess she had to crash
	Valium would have helped that fast
	She said

	Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
	I said hey honey, take a walk on the wild side
	And the colored girls say
	C                              F6   [L.R. 2X; colored girls 4X]
	Do do-do   do-do do-do-do-do   Do do-do   do-do do-do-do-do
	Dooo...

Coda:

Excellent! I would change 2 things (slightly)...

		   C             FM7           C
v v v v v v v v v...
I [electric] -9--------12-/-14-------17-\-9---|
-----------------|-------------|-----|
-----------------|-------------|-----|
II [acoustic] -8--------8--\-1--------1--/-8---|


F6 would be something like: x 3 3 2 3 x (1 3 3 2 3 1)

FMaj7 would be: x 3 3 2 1 0 (x 0 3 2 1 0)

And I'm pretty sure the "D" chords should be "Dm"
