I can't believe this is nowhere to be found on the web. Well, there's one guy on 
but the only thing he gets right are the words. So yeah. It's not an easy tab, and I'm not even 
to go near that insane solo saxophone bit. This is just the basic chord 
progression driving the song.

In my opinion this sounds much better without hitting any open strings.. most of the time.

It's in 6/8 time. Or 3/4. I never get that right.

[Intro]

Cmaj7 Dbm7b5 Dm7   Ebdim7 
Em7   Fmaj7  E7    Am7 
Fmaj7 F7     Em7   A7 
Dm7   G9     Cmaj7 C7 
Bm7   E7     Am    Am7/G D7sus2/F#
Fmaj7 F7     Em7   A7 
D9    G9     Em7   A7 
D9    G9 

[Verse 1]

Cmaj7              Dbm7b5       Dm7       Ebdim7
Tight-slacked clad girls on the graveyard shift
           Em7    Fmaj7
'Neath the cement stroll
          E7       Am7
Catch the midnight drift
Fmaj7         F7
Cigar chewing Charlie
        Em7           A7
In that newspaper nest
         Dm7            G7
grifting hot horse tips
         Cmaj7            C7
On who's running the best

[Chorus]

        Bm7            E7
And I'm blinded by the neon
Am            Am7/G      D7sus2/F#
Don't try and change my tune
Fmaj7                      F7
'Cause I thought I heard a saxophone
    Em7          A7    D9 G9 Em7 
D9 G9
I'm drunk on the moon

[Verse 2]
Cmaj7                   Dbm7b5
And the moon's a silver slipper
             Dm7       Ebdim7
It's pouring champagne stars
Em7               Fmaj7
Broadway's like a serpent
        E7             Am7
Pulling shiny top-down cars
Fmaj7      F7
Laramer is teeming
          Em7        A7
With that undulating beat
         Dm7           G9
And some Bonneville is screaming
         Cmaj7           C7
It's way wilder down the street

[Chorus]

        Bm7            E7
And I'm blinded by the neon
Am            Am7/G      D7sus2/F#
Don't try and change my tune
Fmaj7                      F7
'Cause I thought I heard a saxophone
    Em7          A7    D9 G9 Em7 
D9 G9
I'm drunk on the moon

[Verse 3]

Cmaj7              Dbm7b5
Hearts flutter and race
    Dm7           Ebdim7
The moon's on the wane
Em7                Fmaj7
Tarts mutter their dream hopes
    E7         Am7
The night will ordain
Fmaj7             F7
Come schemers and dancers
Em7           A7
Cherry delight
     Dm7             G9
As a Cleveland-bound Greyhound
       Cmaj7                 C7
And it cuts through the night

[Chorus/Outro]

         Bm7                 E7
And I've harked all my yesterdays
Am            Am7/G      D7sus2/F#
Don't try and change my tune
Fmaj7                      F7
'Cause I thought I heard a saxophone
    Em7          A7    D9 G9 Em7 
D9 G9 Ab6/9
I'm drunk on the moon
