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)

back up two frets and so on.

p    = pull-off
