Girls On Film:Duran Duran.
#5 in UK, #11 in Australia, and #26 in USA 
in 1981.

INTRO: Am D (x2)

#1.
Am                       D          
See them walking hand in hand, across the bridge 
   Am       D
at midnight.
Am                   D                          Am     D
Heads turning as the lights flashing out are so bright.
    Am                
And walk right out to the four line track..there's a 
D                           Am     D
camera rolling on her back..on her back.
      Am                             D
And I sense the rhythms humming in a frenzy, all the way 
         Am    D
down her spine.

CHORUS:
Am    C  D     D     C  Am    Am    C  D     D     C  Am
Girls on Film..Girls on Film..Girls on Film..Girls on Film.

 Am D (x2)

#2.
Am                  D                      Am      D
Lipstick cherry all over the lens as she's falling..
    Am                  D                         Am   D
and miles of sharp blue water coming in where she lies.
    Am                                       D
The diving man's coming up for air cause the crowd all 
                          Am           D
love pulling Dolly by the hair..by the hair.
        Am                       D                     
And she wonders how she ever got here, as she goes under 
 Am   D
again.

CHORUS:
Am    C  D                        D     C  Am
Girls on Film (two minutes later) Girls on Film..
Am    C  D                       D     C  Am
Girls on Film (got your picture) Girls on Film.

 Am D (x4)

#3.
Am           D                             Am      D
Wider, baby, smile, and you've just made a million.
Am                 D                       Am   D
Fuses pumping live heat, twisting out on a wire.
     Am                                   D
Take one last glimpse into the night..I'm touching close..
                    Am      D
I'm holding bright..holding tight.
        Am                               D
Give me shudders with a whisper..take me high 'til I'm 
           Am   D
shooting a star.

OUTRO:
Am    C  D                             D     C  Am
Girls on Film (she's more than a lady) Girls on Film..
Am    C  D                        D     C  Am
Girls on Film (two minutes later) Girls on Film..
Am    C  D                       D     C  Am
Girls on Film (see you together) Girls on Film..
Am    C  D                    D     C  Am
Girls on Film (see you later) Girls on Film..
Am    C  D     D     C  Am
Girls on Film..Girls on Film..(Fade.)

Nice tab! Think you just forgot to put out a D on the first and last line in the first verse?
Also, they "hang" on Am going in to the choruses.
Good job!

I think the chorus is actually A-E-D, then E-C-A. Sounds closer to the recording to me, at least.
