No guarantees - I took the chords down by listening and now I'll just try
to recall them (don't have my guitar handy...) but something like this:
I'll just give a clue of the lyrics instead of writing them all down...

Dm7                             A7
Well I wonder where U R 2 nite  probably on a rampage...

F                               G7
You have been known to take...  in getting in somebody's....

Bb                              A7      Dm7     A7
Always had the knack 2          fade to black

Dm7                                     A7
I betcha already made your pass.....    I see a darkened room somewhere...

..and so on. It's a good song, hope this helps!

This is definitely wrong. I am going through it by ear as well, but no way. The Bb sounds right and that's about it. I haven't listened to this great song in a long time. I'll make it my next fixer-upper.

Clearly wrong. not a very good tab I am tabbing by ear and these are quite wrong, especially if he didn't even use a guitar.
