VERSE 1:
A                                                 
Lumps in my throat when I saw her comin' down the aisle,
          D                                                     A
I got the wiggles in my knees when she looked at me and sweetly smiled.
E                                              A                                              
There she is again standin' over by the record machine,
D                                                    A
Yes she's lookin' like a model on the cover of a magazine.
E                                       A
She's too cute to be a minute over seventeen.  


BRIDGE I:

Now meanwhile, I was thinkin', (Spoken)
             D              
She's in the mood, no need'n break it.
        A                
I got a chance, I oughta take it.
          E             D
If she'll dance, we can make it.
      A                       
C'mon queenie, let's shake it.   


CHORUS I:
A                          
Go, go, go, little Queenie.
D                          A
Go, go, go, little Queenie,
E                          A
Go, go, go, little Queenie.  


INSTRUMENTAL BREAK I
|A   D  A|
|E      A|


VERSE 2:
A                                                      
Tell me who's the queen standin' over by the record machine,
D                                          A  
Lookin' like a model on the cover of a magazine.
E                                       A
She's too cute to be a minute over seventeen.  


BRIDGE II

But meanwhile, I was still thinkin', (Spoken)
          D                    
If it's a slow song we'll omit it.
          A   
If it's a rocker, that'll get it,
            E              D
And if it's good, she'll admit it.
      A                 
C'mon queenie, let's get with it. (Ahh-Ahw)  


CHORUS II:
A                          
Go, go, go, little Queenie.
D                          A
Go, go, go, little Queenie.
E                          A 
Go, go, go, little Queenie.   (Ahh-Ahw)

A                                                      
Tell me who's the queen standin' over by the record machine,
D                                          A  
Lookin' like a model on the cover of a magazine.
E                                       A
She's too cute to be a minute over seventeen.  


BRIDGE III

But meanwhile, I was st-ill thinkin', (Spoken)
             D              
She's in the mood, no need'n break it.
        A                
I got a chance, I oughta take it.
          E             D
If she'll dance, we can make it.
          A                       
C'mon now queenie.  (Ahh-Ahw)

E                          A 
Go, go, go, little Queenie.   (Ahh-Ahw)

Go, go, go, little Queenie.
E                          A 
Go, go, go, little Queenie.   (Ahh-Ahw)


[End]


Notes:
1.  This chord TAB makes no pretence to capture George and John's frenetic guitar weaving, call-and-answer 
style.  As I may transcribe the lead and bass lines, in a separate TAB.  As I really like 'The Beatles' 
cover version of Chuck Berry's original 'Little Queenie' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uyp13Q6dQjY.
2."…The 1998 Copyright Act had recently been passed, and Apple's lawyers were able to prove that the 
Star-Club recordings were made while The Beatles were under contract to EMI. In the witness box Harrison 
described the tapes as "the crummiest recording ever made in our name, and said that "One drunken person 
recording another bunch of drunks does not constitute a business deal."…"
