intro:

play this bit 8 times (it's pretty quick so best touse alternate strumming)e--4/5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--|B--6/7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--|G--6/7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--|D--6/7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--|A--4/5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--|E----------------------------------------|
then this bit just the oncee----2------------3----------(2)-----------(0)-|B----3------------0----------(3)-----------(2)-|G----2------------0----------(2)-----------(2)-|D----0------------0----------(0)-----------(2)-|A-----------------2------------------------(0)-|E-----------------3----------------------------|
| | | | V V these bits are optional - I don't think they're actually played but it demonstrates the chord progression used
the organ bit over the above is: (call it organ bit A)e-------5-7-5---------------------5-7-5-----5---|-----|B-5---7-------7-7-8-7-5-7-7-5---7-------7-8---7-|-5-7-|G---7-------------------------7-----------------|-----|A-----------------------------------------------|-----|
/ / / / don't play 1st time verse D xx0232 G 320003 A x02220 F# 244322 D G <-----play organ well I heard...Bette Midler... bit A over D A <-----these lines so gleefully...my friends D F# G <-----play organ but they said..she wasn't...to die bit B over D A <-----these lines and by the way...news for you (look below)
organ bit B (chords above to help) D F#G D Ae-------5-7-5-----6-7-7-9-7-5-|B-5---7-------7-7-------------|G---7-------------------------|D-----------------------------|
then play above verse section again, except use thisas organ bit B (chords above to help) D F#G D G A De-------5-7-5-----6-7-|-15-14-12----15-14-12----|B-5---7-------7-7-----|----------15----------15-|G---7-----------------|-------------------------|D---------------------|-------------------------| |<--play this bit twice-->|
then there's this instrumental section. the guitarchimes away at an A chord while an organ does thistwice (this might not be exact but sounds prettyclose)e-------0---2---0---------------|B---3-----------------3---------|G-2---2---2---2---2-0---2-0-2-0-|D-------------------------------|
then (still instrumental break) the organ plays thistwice while the guitar p;ays the chords above (againmight not be exact) D A De---------------0-----|B-----3-----3-----3-3-|G---------------------|D-0-0---0-0---0-------|A---------------------|
then it's back to familiar territory (ie most of theabove is played again) then there's this guitar solo(again might not be exact)e--------------------------------------|B-----8-------------------8------------|G-7b9---9b7---7-------7b9---9b7---7~~--|D-----------9---9-7-9-----------9----9-|A--------------------------------------|
e----------------------------------------------|B--------------------------------7-------------|G---------------7h9b11b9-7---7b9---9b7-----7---|D-----7-9-9-7h9------------9-----------9p7---9-|A-7h9------------------------------------------|E----------------------------------------------|
("supercalifragilistic...")e-------------------------|B----------------------10-|G---------------7-9b11----|D-----7-9-9-7h9-----------|A-7h9---------------------|E-------------------------|
e-------------------14----------|B-10h12p10-12-14b15----14\12----|G----------------------------14-|D-------------------------------|A-------------------------------|E-------------------------------|
then it's a D chord a few times, then all that remains is already tabbed. some bits might not be exact but it sounds pretty much ok to me, so have lotsa fun
