Classic from the  Eliminator  album.

Many guitar parts, one of which is slide, difficult to play with just
one guitar in standard tuning.  I will add more of the solo later.

Lyrics:


Clean shirt, new shoes
And I don't know where I am going to.
Silk suit, black tie,
I don't need a reason why.
They come runnin' just as fast as they can
'cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.

Gold watch, diamond ring,
I ain't missin' not a single thing.
Cuff-links, stick pin
When I step out I'm gonna do you in.
They come a runnin' just as fast as they can
'cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.

Top coat, Top hat,
And I don't worry cause my wallet's fat.
Black shades, white gloves,
Lookin' sharp, lookin' for love.
They come runnin' just as fast as they can
'cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.
