Em  A6    Am/D
She was a working girl
Cm               G
North of England way
Em    A6      Am/D
Now she's hit the big time
Cm         G
In the U.S.A.
A7
And if she could only hear me
D7
This is what I'd say.

G                           Eb7
Honey pie you are making me crazy
E7                  A7
I'm in love but I'm lazy
D7                       G        Eb7   D7
So won't you please come home.

   G                        Eb7
Oh honey pie my position is tragic
E7                   A7
Come and show me the magic
D7                G       F#  F
of your Hollywood song.

Em           C#m7b5        G              G7
You became a legend of the silver screen
            C
And now the thought of meeting you
E7                   Am        D7
Makes me weak in the knee.

   G                            Eb7
Oh honey pie you are driving me frantic
E7              A7
Sail across the Atlantic
D7              G         Eb7   D7
To be where you belong.

Instrumental (same as verse)
|G    |G    |Eb7  |E7   |A7   |D7   |G    |Eb7          D7|
                                         I like it like that

G                            Eb7

E7
Hot kind of music
A7
Just play it to me
D7                      G       F#  F
Play it to me Hollywood Blues

Em                 C#m7b5
Will the wind that blew her boat
 G              G7
Across the sea
C               E7              Am    D7
Kindly send her sailing back to me.

G                           Eb7
Honey pie you are making me crazy
E7                  A7
I'm in love but I'm lazy

So won't you please come home.

The bridge is wrong. The second chord should be C#dim (x4545x), not Cm7. Otherwise, sounds good.

This video shows how to play the intro nicely:

Oops, I misnamed that chord. The second chord in the bridge (x4545x) is a C#7b5, also called a C# half diminished. Very common in jazz. Another (and more common) position to play it would be 9x998x.
