Modern Lovers - I'm Straight

hey look, here's another one,

Here is another tab/chord chart for a song from the 
Modern Lovers' 1976 album, *The Modern Lovers.* 
I would be extremely interested in hearing from 
anybody with corrections, comments, etc.

Thanks,

I'm Straight

This song has pretty much the same structure throughout, like this:

   E                 E               C              G  (F#)     E

e--0---------------|-0-------------|-0-------------|------------0----|
B--0---------------|-0-------------|-1-------------|------------0----|
G--1---------------|-1-------------|-0-------------|------------1----|
D--2---------------|-2-------------|-2-------------|------------2----|
A--2---------------|-2-------------|-3-------------|-2----------2----|
E--0---------------|-0-------------|-X-------------|-3---2--0---0----|

Basically an E C G E pattern with a little bass run between the G and
the E. Repeat this pattern for the entire song, except where there are
single chords, as in the beginning. N.C. means "no chord."


  E  N.C.                  E  N.C.
I called this number three times already today
    C  N.C.
But I, I got scared, I put
 G F# E
It back in place, I put my phone back in place.
E
I still don't know if I
E
should have called up.
      C                                G F# E
Look, just tell me why don't ya if I'm out of place.
E
'Cause here's your chance to make me feel awkward
                   C
And wish that I had
           G F# E
never even called up this place.
E 
I saw you though today walk by with hippie Johnny.
         C                             G F# E
I had to call up and say how I want to take his place.

(and so on . . . . . . )

So this phone call today conerns hippie Johnny.
He's always stoned, he's never straight.
I saw you today, you know, walk by with hippie Johnny.
Look, I had to call up and say, I want to take his place.
See he's stoned, hippie Johnny.
Now get this, I'm straight and I want to take his place.
Now look, I like him too, I like hippie Johnny.
But I'm straight
and I want to take his place.
I said, I'm straight
I said, I'm straight
I'm proud to say
Well I'm straight and I want to take his place.

Now I've watched you walk around here.
I've watched you meet these
boyfriends, I know, and you tell me how they're deep.
Look but, if these guys, if they're really so great,
tell me, why can't they at least take this place
and take it straight? Why always stoned,
like hippie Johnny is?
I'm straight and I want to take his place.
Oh I'm certainly not stoned, like hippie Johnny is.
I'm straight and I want to take his place.
I said, I'm straight
I said, I'm straight
I'm
I'm straight and I want to take his place
All right you Modern Lovers what do you say?
(I'm straight!)
Tell the world now
(I'm straight!)
I said
(I'm straight!)
Yeah I'm straight and I want to take his place.
