D	    Em
Uptown girl
			 Gbm           G
She's been living in her uptown world
	  A           D               Em
I bet she never had a back street guy
                     Gbm	   G
I bet her mama never told her why
          A
I'm gonna try for an


D           Em
Uptown girl
                         Gbm                G
She's been living in her white bread world
           A           D              Em
As long as anyone with hot blood can
                            Gbm            G
And now she's looking for a downtown man
              A
That's what I am


Bb           Gm
And when she knows what
    Cm             F
She wants from her time
Bb           Gm
And when she wakes up
    Cm           F
And makes up her mind


G              Em
She'll see I'm not so tough
C
Just because
A
I'm in love with an
D            Em
Uptown girl
 			      Gbm           G
You know I've seen her in her uptown world
              A            D               Em
She's getting tired of her high class toys
                              Gbm            G
And all her presents from her uptown boys
            A
She's got a choice


F            G               G               Am      G
Whoo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-oah
F            G               G               A       A
Whoo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-oah


D            Em
Uptown girl
                           Gbm             G
You know I can't afford to buy her pearls
          A               D               Em
But maybe someday when my ship comes in
                               Gbm            G
She'll understand what kind of guy I've been
              A
And then I'll win


Bb             Gm
And when she's walking
      Cm         F
She's looking so fine
Bb             Gm
And when she's talking
       Cm             F
She'll say that she's mine
G              Em
She'll say I'm not so tough
C
Just because
A
I'm in love with an


D           Em
Uptown girl
                         Gbm                G
She's been living in her white bread world
           A           D              Em
As long as anyone with hot blood can
                            Gbm            G
And now she's looking for a downtown man
              A
That's what I am


E            Gbm
Uptown girl
                Abm
She's my uptown girl
    A           B
You know I'm in love
        E            Gbm
With an uptown girl
          Abm
My uptown girl
    A           B
You know I'm in love
        E            Gbm
With an uptown girl
          Abm
My uptown girl
    A           B
You know I'm in love
        E           Gbm
With an uptown girl
          Abm
My uptown girl
