O.K.
So the song goes like this:

(Rhy. Fig. 1) x 2

(Chorus w/Rhy. Fig. 1) x 2
Take me down to the paradise city,
where the grass is green and the girls are pretty.
Oh won`t you please take me home.

(Rhy. Fig. 2) x 2

[(Riff B then Riff B-1) w/Rhy. Fig. 2]
[(Riff B then Riff B-2) w/Rhy. Fig. 2]

(Riff C)

(Verse 1 w/Rhy. Fig. 3)
Just an urchin livin` under the street.
I`m a ... hard case that`s tough to beat.
I`m your charity case, so buy me something to eat.
I`ll pay you at another time.

(Riff C)

(Verse 2 w/Rhy. Fig. 3)

(Chorus w/Rhy. Fig. 1) x 2


(Solo) not included


Then comes this....

|------10-----------10-------10-----------10------8------|
|--------------------------------------------------------|
|10h11----12--10h11----10h11----12--10h11----8h9---------|
|--------------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------------|
So far a - way.

After which slide each note on the G string (3rd from the bottom)
down two frets (i.e. 10--8h9----8h9) for a while and then move it
back up two frets and so on.

I think that is about it. I am not going to get into the really fast
part at the end. It`s about 4 1/2 pages long and will take more time
then I have available.

If I messed something up email me directly so I can fix it and re-send
it.

If you want the solo or the fast part it would probably make more sense
just to go out and buy the book then to ask for it.
