Someone requested tab for this one - It's all based on pretty simple chords, 
so I'm just going to give the chord shapes for most of it.

My memory's failed me on the words , so I'll type some to give an idea of
how chords and words match up


                  MY OLD SCHOOL       -    STEELY DAN
                 ---------------

INTRO:

Em7      C    

A-----------5-----------
E-----3-5s7---7s5-3-5-0-3

s=slide


VERSE:
-------

(each chord is strummed on the 2 and 4 beats for most of the verse)


  G                                  Em

a bit more instrumental stuff with saxes.
