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.

Guitar solo to end.... 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.
