"Why Don't You Do Right?" Peggy Lee.
Tabbed by Gaëtan L. (under_loustic@hotmail.fr)
Standard Tuning

This version of the song sound pretty good if you can get the good rythm.

     Dm               A#  A
You had plenty money, 1922 

     Dm                  A#        A
You let other women make a fool of you 

              Gm                            Dm
Why don't you do right, like some other men do? 

Gm         A    A#              C#7    Dm   A# A
Get out of here and get me some money too 


       Dm                          A#           A
You're sittin' there and wonderin' what it's all about 

     Dm                           A#      A
You ain't got no money, they will put you out 

              Gm                            Dm
Why don't you do right, like some other men do? 

Gm         A    A#              C#7    Dm   A# A
Get out of here and get me some money too 



   Dm                     A#      A
If you had prepared twenty years ago 

   Dm                            A#      A
You wouldn't be a-wanderin' from door to door 

              Gm                            Dm
Why don't you do right, like some other men do? 

Gm         A    A#              C#7    Dm   A# A
Get out of here and get me some money too 


Dm Dm A# A 
Dm Dm A# A 
Gm Dm 
Gm A A# C#7 
Dm Dm A# A


  Dm                         A#       A
I fell for your jivin' and I took you in 

    Dm                          A#       A
Now all you got to offer me's a drink of gin 

              Gm                            Dm
Why don't you do right, like some other men do? 

Gm         A    A#              C#7    Dm   A# A
Get out of here and get me some money too 

              Dm        A#        A         Dm  
Why don't you do right, like some other men do? 

A#        A         Dm...
Like some other men do

Hm, not really jazzy for these are not jazz chords :p
In my opinion it's like:
Dm = Dm7
A = A7 (or alternatively A7add13 - matter of taste :)
A# = A#7 (or alt. A#7/#5 -,,- )
Gm = Gm7
And C#7 sounds wrong for me. First I thought it's C#7b9 but in the original song I hear A7.
Also I think when the vocals go "money" or "women" there should be an Dm7/C (x3023(1))or(8x756x)or maybe C6add9 (6x556x).

Cheers! :)

I agree with Sedi. That C#7 should be A7.
