this is very well done - thanks for posting
I have the walk down the end of the second line of the verse as:

CMaj B7 BbMaj A7 and then into:

that's where I found my mandarin plum
0 1 0 4 0 0 0 1 1 0 2 0

also I tried to google the title and there apparently is no "Green Flower
Street" that I could find-- purely a figment of D. Fagen's all too active imagination -- duh!

Listen to the recording, tjm. What I have posted is correct. Listen carefully to the bass notes.
