  (^^^^^^^^^^^ This the main part, the second half of each measure
   in this song consists of the jangly high notes of the chords, which are
   not as distinct (and therefore probably not exact :)  ))


Well you can go out with him
F            Bb              F

Play with all of his toys
                 C        F

But takin' care of you darlin'
           Bb                  F

Ain't for one of the boys
          C               F

Oh there's somethin' in your soul
           Dm                     F

That he's gonna rob
                Dm   Bb

And lovin' you baby lovin' you darlin'
               C   B           C       B

Lovin' you woman is a man's man's job
           C                      F

Lovin' you's a man's job baby
               Bb             F

Lovin' you's a man's job
               C         F

Lovin' you's a man's job baby
               Bb             F

Lovin' you's a man's job
               C         F


Well now his kisses may thrill
Those other girls that he likes
But when it comes to treatin'
A real woman right
Well of all of his tricks
No they won't be enough
'Cause lovin' you baby lovin' you woman
Lovin' you darlin' is a man's man's job
Lovin' you's a man's job baby
Lovin' you's a man's job
Lovin' you's a man's job baby
Lovin' you's a man's job

You're dancin' with him he's holding you tight
Bb

I'm standing here waitin' to catch your eye
Dm                           Am

Your hand's on his neck as the music sways
Bb

All my illusions slip away
Dm               Am


GUITAR SOLOS:   (My BEST guesses)

REPEAT RIFF FROM INTRO TWICE


Now if you're lookin' for a hero
Someone to save the day
Well darlin' my feet
They're made of clay
But I've got something in my soul
And I wanna give it up
But gettin' up the nerve
Gettin' up the nerve
Gettin' up the nerve is a man's man's job
Lovin' you's a man's job baby
Lovin' you's a man's job
Lovin' you's a man's job woman
Lovin' you's a man's job

A few chord errors here - the B in the chorus is a Bb, the 2nd line of the bridge is Bb-Gm-Am-C, not Bb-Dm-Am. The solo is just arpeggiation over the chords (with some tremolo bar). A few other placement issues, but generally good work!
