Intro:
        E E D D   E E F F# G G
        (introduces main riff -- this is all in E)

Verse 1:
        G7           F/G
        Fly into the rising sun,
        G             F/G
        faces smiling ev'ryone.
        G            F/G
        Oh, she is a whole new tradition,
        G               F/G
        I feel it in my heart.

Chorus:
        E             E     E             E
        My woman from Tokyo, she makes me see.
        E             E     E         E
        My woman from Tokyo, she's so good to me.

Verse 2:
        Talk about her like a queen,
        dancing in an eastern dream.
        Oh, she makes me feel like a river
        that carries me away.

Chorus:
        My woman from Tokyo, she makes me see.
        My woman from Tokyo, she's so good to me..

Bridge:
        A7                    A7              Gm   Gm Gm Gm
        But I'm at home and I, I just don't belong.

        G       G            G         F    F
        So far away from the garden we love,
        G           G            G         F    F G G G F F
        she is what moves in the soul of a dove.

        G            G            G             F     F
        Soon I shall see just how black was the night,
        G           G           G       F     F G G C C7 C7 C7
        when we're alone in the city of light.

        G D6 G/B C G/D C D6 G G G G

Verse 3:
        Rising from the neon gloom,
        shining like a crazy moon.
        Oh, she turns me on like a fire,
        I get high.

Chorus:
        My woman from Tokyo, she makes me see.
        My woman from Tokyo, she's so good to me..

Solo:
        B7 A7 E E  B7 A7 E E  B7 A7 E E
        B7 A7 C7 C7 C7 C7

Chorus:
        My woman from Tokyo, she makes me see.
        My woman from Tokyo, she's so good to me..

Ending:
        (repeat main riff and fade)


Damn!  I just realized that I don't have a record with this song any more
so I couldn't check the chords against the recorded version.  Anyway, this
is what I could recover from my notes from some 15 years ago when I last
tried playing that song.  Hope this helps...
