[Verse 1]

C                        F6
Holly came from Miami, FLA
C                               F6
Hitchhiked her way across the USA
C                    D
Plucked her eyebrows on the way
F                        D
Shaved her legs and then he was a she

She says


[Chorus]

C                             F6
Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
C                                   F6
Said hey honey, take a walk on the wild side


[Verse 2]

C                        F6
Candy came from out on the island
C                               F6
In the backroom she was everybody's darling
C                    D
But she never lost her head
F                        D
Even when she was giving head

She says


[Chorus]

C                             F6
Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
C                                   F6
Said hey honey, take a walk on the wild side

And the colored girls go
C                              F6    
Do do-do   do-do do-do-do-do   Do do-do   do-do do-do-do-do

Dooo...


[Verse 3]

C                        F6
Little Joe never once gave it away
C                               F6
Everybody had to pay and pay
C                    D
A hustle here and a hustle there
F                        D
New York City is the place where

They say


[Chorus]

C                             F6
Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
C                                   F6
Said hey honey, take a walk on the wild side


[Verse 4]
 
C                                  F6
Sugar Plum Fairy came and hit the streets
C                                   F6
Looking for soul food and a place to eat
C              D     F                       D   
Went to the Apollo, you should have seen him go, go go

They said


[Chorus]

C                             F6
Hey Sugar, take a walk on the wild side
C                                   F6
Said hey honey, take a walk on the wild side
              C
All right... huh


[Verse 5]

C                        F6
Jackie is just speeding away
C                               F6
Thought she was James Dean for a day
C                    D
Then I guess she had to crash
F                        D
Valium would have helped that fast

She said


[Chorus]

C                             F6
Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
C                                   F6
Said hey honey, take a walk on the wild side

And the colored girls go
C                              F6    
Do do-do   do-do do-do-do-do   Do do-do   do-do do-do-do-do

Dooo...


[Outro]

Excellent! I would change 2 things (slightly)...

		   C             FM7           C
v v v v v v v v v...
I [electric] -9--------12-/-14-------17-\-9---|
-----------------|-------------|-----|
-----------------|-------------|-----|
II [acoustic] -8--------8--\-1--------1--/-8---|


F6 would be something like: x 3 3 2 3 x (1 3 3 2 3 1)

FMaj7 would be: x 3 3 2 1 0 (x 0 3 2 1 0)

And I'm pretty sure the "D" chords should be "Dm"
