Intro: | D A | G A | (2 times)

    D          A    G             A     D         A   G   A
She struts into the room. Well, I don't know her
           D      A   G             A      D           A   G   A
But with a magnifying glance I just sort of look her over
   D            A  G             A  D      A   G   A
We have a drink or two, well, maybe three
         D            A      G              A    D      A   G   A
And then suddenly she starts telling me her life story

           G                              F#m                    Bm  A  G
She says, "Baby, if you want to be my lover you'd better take me home.
              A                 G            A         G     D
'Cause it's a long, long way to paradise and I'm still on my own."

  D             A G           A     D         A   G   A
I told her that I came from Detroit city
      D             A    G                    A    D           A   G   A
and I played guitar in a long-haired rock and roll band
    D            A   G             A   D      A   G   A
She asked me why the singer's name was Alice
         D             A   G                 A  D      A   G   A
I said, "Listen, baby, you really wouldn't understand."

              G                              F#m                    Bm  A  G
Then I said, "Baby, if you want to be my lover you'd better take me home.
              A                 G            A         G     D
'Cause it's a long, long way to paradise and I'm still on my own."

| D | D | D | D | (slowing tempo)

     G                              F#m                    Bm  A  G
Oh, "Baby, if you want to be my lover you'd better take me home.
              A                 G            A         G     F       G
'Cause it's a long, long way to paradise and I'm still on my own."
