Verse:
     E
Well do you don't you want me to make you
I'm coming down fast but don't let me break you
                                 G
Tell me tell me tell me come on tell me the answer
          A                                E
Well you may be a lover but you ain't no dancer.

So much for verses and choruses.  The rest are pretty much the same,
except that the rest of the verses hit the G chord a little sooner
(at the beginning of the third line of the verse).
Here's the guitar solo in the middle:
    E                          A                      E

-|------------------------------------------------------------------
-|------------------------------------------------------------------
-|------------------------------------------------------------------
    'Cos here she comes
                                  A                                    E
-|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
-|--b(17)15b(17)15---------------13b(14)------------------b(17)15-----------
-|------------------b(14)12---------------b(14)12b(14)12-----------12-------
-|---------------------------14----------------------------------------14~--
-|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
-|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Later, there's a neat riff in one of the last verses.  I think it
comes right after "will you won't you want me to make you" or something
like that.  This is a cool riff with that looonnnng slide.
-|--12--15b(17)--b(17)15--12------12----------------------------------------
-|----------------------------15------15\10-----10b(12)--b(12)10--8---------
-|-------------------------------------------9-----------------------7--9---
-|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
-|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
-|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
As the song fades into the first ending, there are some nice bend releases,
while the lyrics repeat "coming down fast":
-|--b(17)15------------------------------------------------------------
-|-----------b(17)15---------------------------------------------------
-|--------------------b(16)14------------------------------------------
-|-----------------------------b(14)12---------------------------------
-|--------------------------------------b(14)12------------------------
-|---------------------------------------------------------------------
Later, there's a whole lot of Hendrix-like guitar noise.
