Sorry I lost the name of the person who posted some Steely Dan
- including "Any Major Dude"  -  because I wanted to say thanks.
Anyway, here's my attempt at "Dirty Work".

Dirty Work                             Steely Dan
==========


[Intro]

C  F  Am  Bb  Bb->B->C


Am        Dm            G                 C
Times are hard,  you're afraid to pay the fee
       Am            Dm               C              G
So you find yourself somebody who can do the job for free
         Am            Dm                G             C
When you need a bit of lovin' cause your man is out of town
           Am              Dm              C            D
That's the time you get me runnin' and you know I'll be around.


[Chorus]

C       F                Am
  I'm a fool to do your dirty work
   Bb  Bb->B->C
Oh yeah
C        F                Am
I don't want to do your dirty work
   Bb  Bb->B->C
No more
C     F                Am
I'm a fool to do your dirty work
   Bb  Bb->B->C
Oh yeah


Am        Dm              G             C
Light the candle, put the lock upon the door
         Am                 Dm           C              G
You have sent the maid home early like a thousand times before
        Am         Dm          G        C
Like a castle in a corner in a medieval game
     Am           Dm            C                  D
I forsee terrible trouble and I stay here just the same


[Chorus]

D

The version I'm playing along to from Can't Buy A Thrill is a semitone higher than this. With a capo on 1st it sounds great though.

A good start. Some of these chords have 7ths though. For example, the first line should be:

Amin7 Dmin7
G CMaj7

and the chorus:
C FMaj7 Amin7 Bb Bb->B->C
