[Intro]

C7#9


[Verse 1]

Am                          G6
 While the music played you worked by candle light
      F6/9                                Bb13
Those San Fransisco nights, they were the best in town
Am                            G6
 Just by chance you crossed a diamond with a pearl
    F6/9                                    Bb13
You turned it on the world, that's when you turned the world around
F6          G        Am      G6            Dm7    Em7 Dm7
  Did you feel like Jesus      Did you realise
                 Em7               Fmaj7   Em7  Dm7
That you were a champion in their eyes ?


[Instrumental]

C7#9


[Verse 2]
(same chords progression)

On the hill the stuff was laced with kerosene
But yours was kitchen clean
Everyone stopped to stare at your technicolour motorhome
Every A-frame had your number on the wall
You must have had it all
You'd go to LA on a dare and you'd go it alone
Could you live forever
Could you see the day
Did you feel your whole world fall apart and fade away


[Chorus]

Dm7      Em7       Dm7      Em7
Get along            Get along Kid Charlemagne
Dm7     Em7                F7    G7     C7
 Get along Kid Charlemagne


[Verse 3]
(same chords progression)

Now your patrons have all left you in the red
Your low rent friends are dead
This life can be very strange
All those day-glo freaks who used to paint their face
They've joined the human race, some things will never change
Son you were mistaken
You are obsolete, look at all the white men on the street


[Chorus]

Dm7      Em7       Dm7      Em7
Get along            Get along Kid Charlemagne
Dm7     Em7                F7    G7     C7
 Get along Kid Charlemagne


[Instrumental]


E7#9 A7   Dm7    F/C    B7   E7   Am    G6

Fmaj7   Em7    Dm7 B7 Em7     D6     Cmaj7     Em7  D6/E

Am     G6     F6/9     Bb13     F   G   Am  G6

Dm7    Em7 Dm7     Em7     Fmaj7 Em7 Dm7

C7#9


[Verse 4]
(same chords progression)

Clean this mess up else we'll all end up in jail
Those test tubes and the scales, just get it all out of here
Is there gas in the car ?
Yes there's gas in the car
I think the people down the hall know who you are
Careful what you carry
Cause the man is wise
You are still an outlaw in their eyes


[Chorus]

Dm7      Em7       Dm7      Em7
Get along            Get along Kid Charlemagne
Dm7     Em7                F7    G7     C7
 Get along Kid Charlemagne


[Outro]

Fmaj7     Em7     Dm7     Cmaj7    Em7 Fmaj7    Em7    Dm7
Cmaj7     Em7 Fmaj7    Em7     Dm7     Cmaj7    Em7

...etc  - keep repeating

Thanks for including the shapes. "Kid Charlemagne" has one of the best guitar solos -- by Larry Carlton -- ever. Period.
