Hello! I love Steely Dan and I thought I'd do the UG community a justice and tab out 
this great jam.

The main chord used throughout the song is a Bb6/9, Fretted as such: xx8788
Listen to the song to get the timing for the chords in the verses and choruses.


Key: C minor

Intro and verses: Bb6/9

FIRST VERSE:
Bb6/9 (throughout the verse)
Got a feeling I've been here before
Watching as you cross the killing floor
You know you'll have to pay it all
You'll pay today or pay tomorrow
You fasten up your beaded gown
Then you try to tie me down
Do you work it out one by one
Or played in combination
                             F Eb F
You throw out your gold teeth
       E7  A7       D7
Do you see how they roll

|Abm7  Db7 Cm7|F7  |

Mini guitar solo 1 (bluesy)

SECOND VERSE:
Bb6/9 (throughout the verse)
I have seen your iron and your brass
Can't you see it shine behind the glass
Your fortune is your roving eye
Your mouth and legs
Your gift for the runaround
Torture is the main attraction
I don't need that kind of action
You don't have to dance for me
I've seen your dance before
                             F Eb F
You throw out your gold teeth
       E7  A7       D7
Do you see how they roll

|Abm7  Db7 Cm7|F7  |

Mini guitar solo 2 (same as before)

CHORUS:
Ab                         Eb
Tobacco they grow in Peking
Ab
In the Year of the Locust
             A7  Bb
You'll see a sad thing
Db
Even Cathy Berberian knows
        Gbmaj7          G7    Abmaj7
There's one roulade she can't sing
     Dbmaj7
Dumb luck my friend
      Eb/Ab           F
Won't suck me in this time

SOLO SECTION:
Just have your soloists jam one by one in C minor over the Bb6/9 chord. Let loose.

CHORUS:(same as before)

FINAL VERSE:
Bb6/9 (throughout the verse)
Got a feeling I've been here before
Won't you let me help you find the door
All you got to do is use
Your silver shoes
A gift for the runaround
Use your knack darlin'
Take one step back darlin'
There ain't nothing in Chicago
For a monkey woman to do
                             F Eb F
You throw out your gold teeth
       E7  A7       D7
Do you see how they roll

|Abm7  Db7 Cm7|F7  |

Ride out the rest of the song vamping on the Bb6/9 chord. Everybody go nuts!

I hope you find the tab useful! Email me if you have any suggestions for changes! Good luck!

The main chord doesn't sound quite right to me; what you think about a Cmin7? Maybe just the lowest 3 strings played

IndiePurist is correct, the main chord of the song is just Cmin7, after the big bass note C, you hear (from low to high) Bb, Eb and G.

Agree. The bass player (Becker?) is playing in Cm7. Period.
