[Intro]
     D              G6

[Verse 1]
 D                           G6
Holly came from Miami, F. L. A.
 D                                   G6
Hitch-hiked her way across the U. S. A.
 D                   Em
Plucked her eyebrows on the way,
 G                        Em
Shaved her legs, and then he was a she!


[Chorus]
            D
She says, 'Hey, babe,
                    G6
Take a walk on the wild side,
        D                              G6
Said, 'Hey, honey, take a walk on the wild side!'


[Verse 2]
     D              G6
||:  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  :||[x2]

  D                            G6
Candy came ...from out on the Island,
D                                     G6
In the backroom she was everybody's darling,
 D            Em
But she never lost her head,
 G                  Em
Even when she was giving head!


[Chorus]
            D
She says, 'Hey, babe,
                    G6
Take a walk on the wild side,
       D                              G6
Said, 'Hey, babe, take a walk on the wild side!'


[Verse 3]
G6
    And the coloured girls go...
  D
'Doo, da-doo, da-doo, doo, da-doo!
 G6
Doo, da-doo, da-doo, doo, da-doo!
 D
Doo, da-doo, da-doo, doo, da-doo!
 G6
Doo, da-doo, da-doo, doo, da-doo!'


   D
('Doo, da-doo, da-doo, doo, da-doo!
 G6
Doo, da-doo, da-doo, doo, da-doo!
 D
Doo, da-doo, da-doo, doo, da-doo!
 G6                               D         G6
Doo, da-doo, da-doo, doo, da-doo, do----!')


[Verse 4]
   D              G6
|  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  |

  D                               G6
Little Joe never once gave it a - way,
  D                      G6
Everybody had to pay and pay,
    D                  Em
A hustle here, and a hustle there,
 G              Em
New York City's the place where ...they said...


[Chorus]
  D                             G6
'Hey, babe, take a walk on the wild side!',
          D                            G6
I said, 'Hey, Joe, take a walk on the wild side!'


[Verse 5]
     D              G6
||:  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  :||[x2]

  D                                 G6
Sugar Plum Fairy came and hit the streets,
  D                                   G6
Looking for soul food, and a place to eat,
 D               Em
Went to the ...Apollo,
       G                 Em
You should have seen him go -go -go, they said...


[Chorus]
  D                              G6
'Hey, sugar, take a walk on the wild side!
          D
I said, 'Hey, babe,
                    G6
Take a walk on the wild side!'   Alright!


[Verse 6]
      D             G6
||:  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  :||[x2]

 D                             G6
Jackie is just ...speeding a - way,
 D                               G6
Thought she was James Dean for a day,
 D                 Em
Then, I guess, she had to crash,
 G                 Em
Valium would have helped that bash!


[Chorus]
             D
I said..., 'Hey, babe,
                    G6
Take a walk on the wild side!'
          D                              G6
I said, 'Hey, honey, take a walk on the wild side!'


[Verse 7]
G6
    And the coloured girls say...
  D
'Doo, da-doo, da-doo, doo, da-doo!
 G6
Doo, da-doo, da-doo, doo, da-doo!
 D
Doo, da-doo, da-doo, doo, da-doo!
 G6
Doo, da-doo, da-doo, doo, da-doo!'


  D
('Doo, da-doo, da-doo, doo, da-doo!
 G6
Doo, da-doo, da-doo, doo, da-doo!
 D
Doo, da-doo, da-doo, doo, da-doo!
 G6
Doo, da-doo, da-doo, doo, da-doo!


 D
Doo, da-doo, da-doo, doo, da-doo!
 G6
Doo, da-doo, da-doo, doo, da-doo!
 D
Doo, da-doo, da-doo, doo, da-doo!
 G6                               D         G6
Doo, da-doo, da-doo, doo, da-doo, do----!')
