Intro: Bbm

          Bbm                                 
In their eyes is the place that you finally discovered
          Gb
That you love it here, you've got to stay
        Ebm
On the bottom of the rock, an island
                      Bbm
On which you find you love it when you twitch
                            Gb
You feel that itch in you pettycoat
             Ebm
Your pretty pretty pettycoat


           Bbm
Then you smiled, he got wild
                                     Gb
You didn't understand that there's money to be made
                       Ebm  
Beauty is a card that must get played
      Ab
By organisation


  Bbm   Gb                  Ab          Ebm
And ooh la, she was such a good girl to me
  Gb     Bbm                  Ab                 Ebm
And ooh la, the world just chewed her up, and spat her out
  Gb     Bbm                  Ab           Ebm
And ooh la, she was such a good girl to me
Gb       Bbm                  Ab           Ebm
And ooh la, the world just chewed her up, and spat her out

Interlude: Bbm Gb Ebm Bbm

Bbm
The world can be a very big place
   Gb
So be yourself don't get out of place
 Ebm
Love your man and love him twice
      Bbm                          Gb
Go to Hollywood and pay the price
               Ebm
Oh go to Hollywood


         Bbm
And don't be a star, it's such a drag
      Gb
Take care of yourself, don't begin to lag
        Ebm
It's a hard life to live, so live it well
     Bbm                               Ebm
I'll be your friend and not in pretend

I know you girl
           Ab
In all situations


  Bbm   Gb                  Ab          Ebm
And ooh la, she was such a good girl to me
  Gb     Bbm                  Ab                 Ebm
And ooh la, the world just chewed her up, and spat her out
  Gb     Bbm                  Ab           Ebm
And ooh la, she was such a good girl to me
Gb       Bbm                  Ab           Ebm             
And ooh la, the world just chewed her up, and spat her out

Interlude -x2-: Bbm Gb Ebm

Pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty

Pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pettycoat

Pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty

Pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pettycoat
           Ab
In all situations


Bbm   Gb                  Ab          Ebm
And ooh la, she was such a good girl to me
  Gb     Bbm                  Ab                 Ebm
And ooh la, the world just chewed her up, and spat her out
  Gb     Bbm                  Ab           Ebm
And ooh la, she was such a good girl to me

    SHOW THE STRUMMING PATTERN FOR EVERY SONG OMG

    • @Mark Chickens

      My interpretation:

      Down Up Chuck, Up Down Up Chuck, Up Down Up Chuck, Up Down Up Down Up.

      Then repeat for the rest of the verse until G when you go Down Down, Up Down Up Down, Down Up Down.

      Chorus is iffy. I play a normal down, down up, up down up. but for ‘she was such a good girl’ just do G down down up up down, F down down up up down.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
