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.

    Helter skelter                        Yeah

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
-|----------------------7--7--15b(17)--15b(17)--b(17)15-------------|
-|----------------------0--0----------------------------------------|
-|----------------------9--9----------------------------------------|
-|------------------------------------------------------------------|
-|------------------------------------------------------------------|
-|------------------------------------------------------------------|
    '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------------------------|
-|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
