Tabbed by: adslam3

This is just the chords version with lyrics. It's based off of my tab.
This is also my first tab of just chords, so hopefully it comes out right.
There is a chord chart at the bottom.

Tuning: Standard


INTRO (played twice): G, Cadd9, Em, A 

VERSE 1:
A
Shakey threw a party that lasted all night
D
Everybody drank a lot of something nice
              E
There was an old fashioned band of married men
                        F#m
Looking up to me for encouragement - it was so-so

A
The ladies looked bad but the music was sad
D
No one took their eyes off Lorraine
     E
She shimmered and she strolled like a Chicago moll
                               F#m
Her feathers looked better and better - it was so-so

BRIDGE:
D           A
Yea! it was time to unfreeze
         B                        D
When the Reverend Alabaster danced on his knees
D           A
Slam! so it wasn't a game
E
Cracking all the mirrors in shame

CHORUS:
A     D    G                         C
Watch that man! Oh honey, watch that man
   D                              C                       G
He talks like a jerk but he could eat you with a fork and spoon
A     D    G                         C
Watch that man! Oh honey, watch that man
   D                         C                         B
He walks like a jerk, but he's only taking care of the room
           C
Must be in tune

INTRO again: G, Cadd9, Em, A, G, Cadd9, Em, A
VERSE 2:
A
A Benny Goodman fan painted holes in his hands
   D
So Shakey hung him up to dry
    E
The pundits were joking, the manholes were smoking and every bottle battled
         F#m
with the reason why
    A
The girl on the phone wouldn't leave me alone
  D
A throw back from someone's LP
  E
A lemon in a bag played the Tiger Rag
                                     F#m
And the bodies on the screen stopped bleeding

BRIDGE 2:
D           A
Yeah! I was shaking like a leaf
      B                           D
For I couldn't understand the conversation
D        A                 E
Yeah! I ran to the street, looking for information

CHORUS 2:

A     D    G                         C
Watch that man! Oh honey, watch that man
   D                              C                       G
He talks like a jerk but he could eat you with a fork and spoon
A     D    G                         C
Watch that man! Oh honey, watch that man
   D                         C                         B
He walks like a jerk, but he's only taking care of the room
           C
Must be in tune

ENDING: (the repetition of "watch that man")*
G                 Cadd9
   Watch that man 

*NOTE: For the remainder of the ending, its just G and Cadd9.  Listen
for the changes, they are easy to hear. And that's it!
