MINNIE THE MOOCHER – CAB CALLOWAY / THE BLUES BROTHERS

[Intro]

(Strong blues feel, 95bpm)
|Em   B7  |Em       |Em   B7  |Em       |Em   B7  |Em       |
|C7       |Em/B B7/F# Em |Em       |Em       |Em       |C7   B7   |  


[Verse 1]

Em
Folks, here's the story 'bout Minnie the Moocher,
C7                   B7      Em
  She was a low-down hoochie-cootcher,
Em 
  She was the roughest, toughest frail, 
    C7                    B7       Em
But Minnie had a heart as big as a whale. 


[Chorus]

      Em
Hi-de-hi-de-hi-di-hi! (Hi-de-hi-de-hi-di-hi!)
      Em
Ho-de-ho-de-ho-de-ho! (Ho-de-ho-de-ho-de-ho!)
      Em
He-de-he-de-he-de-he! (He-de-he-de-he-de-he!)
      Em
Hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-ho! (Hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-ho!)


[Verse 2]

Em
  She messed around with a bloke named Smoky,
C7                     B7     Em
  She loved him though he was cokie, 
Em
  He took her down to Chinatown, 
       C7                         B7    Em
And he showed her how to kick the gong around.


[Chorus]

      Em
Hi-de-hi-de-hi-di-hi! (Hi-de-hi-de-hi-di-hi!)
      Em
      Whoooooaaaaah!  (Whoooooaaaaah!)
      Em
He-de-he-de-he-de-he! (He-de-he-de-he-de-he!)
      Em
Hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-ho! (Hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-ho!)


[Verse 3]

Em
  She had a dream about the king of Sweden,
C7                        B7      Em
  He gave her things that she was needin',
Em
  He gave her a home built of gold and steel, 
(Double time feel)
  C7                 B7       Em
A diamond car with a platinum wheel. 


[Chorus]

Em
Hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi! (Hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi!)
Em
Ho-de-ho-de-ho-de-ho-de-ho-de-ho-de-ho! (Ho-de-ho-de-ho-de-ho-de-ho-de-ho-de-hi!)
Em
(Scat + Repeat)
(A tempo)
Em
(Scat + Repeat)


[Verse 4]

Em
  He gave her his townhouse and his racing horses,
C7                        B7    Em
  Each meal she ate was a dozen courses; 
Em
  She had a million dollars worth of nickels and dimes,
    C7                                B7      Em 
She sat around and counted them all a million times.


[Chorus]

      Em
Hi-de-hi-de-hi-di-hi! (Hi-de-hi-de-hi-di-hi!)
      Em
Ho-de-ho-de-ho-de-ho! (Ho-de-ho-de-ho-de-ho!)
      Em
He-de-he-de-he-de-he! (He-de-he-de-he-de-he!)
      Em
Hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-ho! (Hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-ho!)


[Outro]

Em      C7      
Poor    Min,    
C7      B7
Poor    Min,    
Em7/G   Em   (Hold to end)
Poor    Min.

There is another tab that uses Am instead of C7, that doesn't sound too bad, just in case there is anyone who doesn't like using that chord...it also makes it in a key which sounds a little nicer (an E, A & B).

i use the C7 though

Thanks for your comment. However the original (certainly the blues brothers version) uses C7, not Am, regardless of simplicity of key. The Bb in the C7 chord is rather important to the feel of this song; as is the bass note C.
