VERSE.
There are two guitars playing here, one plays a similar pattern to the first two bars of the intro
The other seems to just be playing the chords

C#          B         F#          F#
Sugar smile savvy the king of the kerb
      C#            B           F#       F#
Got a temper in the style of a bomb
        C#             B           F#          F#
Got his friends in his pocket and safe behind bars
        C#         B              F#
All the local boys know what he's done


E        F#
He turns it on
E        F#
He turns it on
E        F#       F#  
He turns it on

Lead Guitar Fill in to the chorus:
e|--------------6-----7---|
B|------7-----------------|
G|3/4/6-----4/6---6/8-----|
D|------------------------|
A|------------------------|
E|------------------------|

Bar 5th block chords will do here, up to the very last F# in the chorus, e.g.
B:   e|-   D#m: e|-   G#m: e|-
     B|-        B|-        B|-
     G|6        G|8        G|13
     D|6        D|8        D|13
     A|4        A|6        A|11
     E|-        E|-        E|-
and so on

B             D#m      G#m     F#
Same boys are doing it for themselves
            E    D#m       E D#m E  F#
There's somebody out there doing it for you
B                 D#m        G#m      F#    
Safe while you're paying out for your health
            E     D#m      C#m     D#m
They're the kings   of the kerb
    E         D#m              F#
And everybody knows what their worth

          C#            B       F#          F#
Keeps the order in this part of town
        C#             B          F#          F#
All the shadows in the alley the shapes at the bar
        C#               B           F#           F#
Like to service him when he does the rounds

E            F#
He turns it on
E            F#
He turns it on
E            F#     F#
