I still havn't convinced myself 100% whether she uses the Dm7/G chord
AND the Gm11 chord - they're almost identical.  In fact I think she
just uses the simpler shape (i.e Dm7/G) - but if you like the variation
you can use both shapes.

I'm going to be lazy again and not write out all the words (I can't remember
many of them) - but I'll write out a few phrases I can remember so you
know where the changes come.

Here are the main progressions :

Intro :

Bb6/9-5  Em7/A  Dadd9    Bb6/9-5  Em7/A  

The outtro uses the same three chords repeating over and over.

Verse :

Dm7                   Em7/A         Bb6/9-5  
The big man arrives  disco dancers greet him

                        Dm7/G          Bb6/9-5
Plain clothes cops greet him   small town big man, fresh lipstick glistening

Dm7            Em7/A                Bb6/9-5 
Sophomore jive beating frantic and snowblind

             Dm7/G                       Dadd9  Dadd9add4
Romantic and snowblind he says his crime belongs

Bb6/9-5                                     Em7/A  
His eyes hold edith his left hand holds his right

                  Fmaj7sus2     Bb6/9-5    Em7/A  A9  Em7/A  A9
What does that hand desire that he grips it so tight

If I've mixed up words from several verses then forgive me !
As long as you see how the chords fit the words/tune then it
should be easy.

Enjoy !
