I still havn't convinced myself 100% whether she uses the Dm7/G chord
AND the Gm11 chord - they're almost identical. In fact I think she
just uses the simpler shape (i.e Dm7/G) - but if you like the variation
you can use both shapes.

I'm going to be lazy again and not write out all the words (I can't remember
many of them) - but I'll write out a few phrases I can remember so you
know where the changes come.

Here are the main progressions :

Intro :

[Bb6/9-5]         [Em7/A]       [Dadd9]         [Bb6/9-5]         [Em7/A]   
The outtro uses the same three chords repeating over and over.

Verse :

[Dm7]The big man arrives  d[Em7/A]isco dancers g[Bb6/9-5]reet him

Plain clothes cops greet[Dm7/G] him   small to[Bb6/9-5]wn big man, fresh lipstick glistening
[Dm7]Sophomore jive [Em7/A]beating frantic and s[Bb6/9-5]nowblind
Romantic and [Dm7/G]snowblind he says his crime [Dadd9]belongs[Dadd9add4]
[Bb6/9-5]His eyes hold edith his left hand holds his [Em7/A]right
What does that han[Fmaj7sus2]d desire that [Bb6/9-5]he grips it[Em7/A] so tig[A9]ht  [Em7/A]       [A9]
If I've mixed up words from several verses then forgive me !
As long as you see how the chords fit the words/tune then it
should be easy.

Enjoy !
