O.K. 
So the song goes like this: 

(Rhy. Fig. 1) x 2 


(Chorus w/Rhy. Fig. 1) x 2 

Take me down to the paradise city, 
where the grass is green and the girls are pretty. 
Oh won't you please take me home. 


(Rhy. Fig. 2) x 2 


[(Riff B then Riff B-1) w/Rhy. Fig. 2] 
[(Riff B then Riff B-2) w/Rhy. Fig. 2] 


(Riff C) 


(Verse 1 w/Rhy. Fig. 3) 

Just an urchin livin' under the street. 
I'm a ... hard case that's tough to beat. 
I'm your charity case, so buy me something to eat. 
I'll pay you at another time. 


(Riff C) 


(Verse 2 w/Rhy. Fig. 3) 


(Chorus w/Rhy. Fig. 1) x 2 


(Solo) not included 


Then comes this.... 


D#|--------10-----------10-------10-----------10------8----| 
A#|--------------------------------------------------------| 
F#|--10h11----12--10h11----10h11----12--10h11----8h9-------| 
C#|--------------------------------------------------------| 
G#|--------------------------------------------------------| 
D#|--------------------------------------------------------| 
  So  far                                   a - way. 


After which slide each note on the G string (3rd from the bottom) 
down two frets (i.e.  10--8h9----8h9) for a while and then move it 
back up two frets and so on.
