This worked for me just fine, I adapted the open chords into fifths so that
they were more user friendly, not sure about the bits with Bb, that might not
work so well. Apologies

Uptown girl
                         F#5          G5
She's been living in her uptown world
A5                 D5               E5
I bet she never had a back street guy
                     F#5           G5
I bet her mama never told her why
          A5
I'm gonna try for an

Uptown girl
                         F#5                G5
She's been living in her white bread world
           A5           D5              E5
As long as anyone with hot blood can
                            F#5           G5
And now she's looking for a downtown man
              A5
That's what I am

Bb5           G5
And when she knows what
    C5            F5
She wants from her time
Bb5           G5
And when she wakes up
    C5           F5
And makes up her mind

Don't know if this bit is right, but it seemed to work
G5              E5
She'll see I'm not so tough
C5
Just because

I'm in love with an

Uptown girl
                              F#5           G5
You know I've seen her in her uptown world
              A5            D5               E5
She's getting tired of her high class toys
                              F#5            G5
And all her presents from her uptown boys
            A5
She's got a choice

F5            G5               G#5            A5      G5
Whoo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-oah

Uptown girl
                           F#5             G5
You know I can't afford to buy her pearls
          A5               D5               E5
But maybe someday when my ship comes in
                               F#5            G5
She'll understand what kind of guy I've been
              A5
And then I'll win

Bb5             G5
And when she's walking
      C5         F5
She's looking so fine
Bb5             G5
And when she's talking
       C5             F5
She'll say that she's mine
G5             E5
She'll say I'm not so tough
C5
Just because
A5
I'm in love with an

With an uptown girl
