Note: There are a lot of fills that I haven't had a chance
to transcribe. I really wanted this to be complete, but
time is hard to come by these days.

This will get ya started though....

Verse 1

Note: (no chords through the first two lines,
just the A, E, D bass line)

You are sultry, dirty, soft and hard

You are close to me and you're so far
A
And I'm thinking of the time we spent together
          A
Now I'll bury this in my backyard
E
Sometimes I sit and wonder
E7
But I'll never dial your number 'cause


A           E           D
I'm having fun looking out for number one
          A             E               D
And I'm doing all the things I like to do
A           E            D
I'm having fun 'cause I knew it all along
     A          E            D
I'd be better off without you

Repeat intro 2x

(bass line)
You are guilty, pretty, high and low

You're a place to stay and a time to go
A (appregio)      E                 D
And I'm searching through the things you left behind here
A          E                    D
Now it's time for me to let it go
E
Sometimes I sit and wonder
E7
But I'll never dial that number 'cause


A           E           D
I'm having fun looking out for number one
          A             E               D
And I'm doing all the things I like to do
A           E            D
I'm having fun 'cause I knew it all along
     A         E            D
I'd be better off without you
     A         E            D
I'd be better off without you

Bridge:
E
Late at night you pick up the telephone
E                                          D
Call me up and cry 'cause you're all alone I don't care
E
Apologize for taking my cigarettes
E
Now it's time to feel all the side effects
D                     E
Missing the life you had RIFF
