Hi - This was graciously transcribed and posted by Howard Wright some time ago. My thanks go to him for all his expertise and efforts! It might have been edited a bit from his original for my own use. Haitian Divorce - Steely Dan ---------------------------- INTRO: Em7 / Em6 / Em7 / Em6 / Em7 / Em6 / E / G#m7 A B F#m E C#m7 Babs and clean willy were in love they said Amaj7 G#m7 B6 C#m7 So in love the preachers face turned red B6 F#m E C#m7 Soon every-body knew the thing was dead Amaj7 Amaj7/Bb E A G#m7 He shouts she bites they wrangle through the night F#m7 B F#m7 B Semi mo-jo who's this kinky so and so, papa go...

Con - grat-u- lations this is your Hai-itian Em7 Em6 Em7 Em6 E G#m7 A Divorce Now it goes back to the second verse- same as the first (but different words!) After the second chorus, it goes to a middle eight type thing with the words: "At the grotto, in the easy chair, sits the Charlie...." etc Going in to this, the last line of the chorus is slightly different in that you don't play the E, G#m7 and A chords but go straight from Em6 to : MIDDLE 8: (Em6) Cmaj7 Em7 D7 At the grotto in the easy chair sits the Charlie with the lotion and the G G7 Cmaj7 kinky hair when she laughed she said it all F7 G7 F7 G7 The band was hot so they danced a famous merango (?) now we A7 C7 dolly back now we fade to black INSTRUMENTAL (Guitar solo): G / F7 / C / Bb7 A7 (play three times) Cmaj7 / / Bm7 Em7 / Em6 / Em7 / Em6 / Em7 / Em6 / E / G#m7 A Next it goes to another verse (verse 3) Same chords as before Then another chorus At the end of the third chorus, play as for the second chorus i.e miss out the E G#m7 and A chords Instead of these go straight into another instrumental bit, same as above for the first threee lines (i.e the three repetition of the first line) but then play: Fmaj7 / / / Em7 / Em6 / and repeat this line as much as you want (the song fades here) For some chords I've put alternative shapes for the same chord.
