[Intro]

   A                        
e|---------------------|
B|---------------------|
G|---------------------|
D|---------------------|
A|---3-4---3-4---3-4---|
E|-5-----5-----5-----5-|


[Verse 1]

     A
I've got a girl with a record machine
                                       D
When it comes to rockin, she's a queen
                                     A
We love to dance on a Saturday night
                                                            
All alone where I can hold her tight
    E7                            
But she lives on 20th floor uptown
        A
And the elevator has broken down



During the verses the riff goes like this: 

   A                       D           A E7          A
e|-----------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------3-4---3-4-----5-6---5-6---|
A|---3-4---3-4---3-4---3-4-5-----5-------7-----7-------|
E|-5-----5-----5-----5-----------------5-------------5-|


[Verse 2]

     A
So I walk one, two flight, three flight, four
                                           D
Five, six, seven flight, eight flight more
                              
At 12th I'm startin' to sag
A
15th floor I'm ready to drag
E7             D                A
Get to the top, I'm too tired to rock



The chorus (above) is played with these power chords:

A =  A5 - 57XXXX
D =  D5 - X57XXX
E7 = E5 - X79XXX


[Verse 3]
(same as verse 1)

She called me up on the telephone
Said: "Come over, baby. I'm all alone."
I said: "Sorry, baby. You're mighty sweet,
but I'm in bed achin' feet."
This went for a couple of days
But I could not stay away


[Verse 4]
(same as verse 1)

So I walk one, two flight, three flight, four
Five, six, seven flight, eight flight more
At 12th I'm startin' to sag
15th floor I'm ready to drag
Get to te top, I'm too tired to rock


[Instrumental]

A A A A D D A A E7 D A A


[Verse 5]
(same as verse 1)

They sent it to Chicago for repairs
'Til it's fixed I'm usin' the stairs
I have to get there before it's to late
My baby couldn't bear much to wait
All this climbin' is gettein' me down
You'll find my corps draped over a rail


[Verse 6]
(same as verse 1)

But I fly one, two flight, three flight four
Five, six, seven flight, eight flight more
At 12th I'm startin' to sag
15th floor I'm ready to drag
Get to the top, I'm too tired to rock
