Thank you both, Wes and Rodders, for coming back and fleshing out some of these songs. I noticed the update to Nowhere Man as well!
Great stuff!

Regards,
Wyle :)

Here's another version I found. It looks pretty close to the original, using a shuffle, if you listen to the original and watch the video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lP94PlEtsEQ Really great song. It's on my list.

Chorus:

A7
A pair of 45s made me open my eyes
G
My temperature started to rise
E G
She was a long cool woman in a black dress
A E
Just a 5'9 beautiful tall
E
With just one look I was a bad mess
A E
'Cause that long cool woman had it all
