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 :
[Em6]At the  gr[Cmaj7]otto in the [Em7]easy chair sits the [D7]Charlie with the lotion and the
k[G]inky hair  when she    la[G7]ughed  she said it   [Cmaj7]all
[F7] The band was [G7]hot so  they    d[F7]anced a famous   me[G7]rango (?) now we
d[A7]olly back  now  we    [C7]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. Take your pick
[EADGBE]x7x787     [EADGBE]x79787      [EADGBE]x7x687      [EADGBE]022100     [EADGBE]464444      [EADGBE]577655
([Em7]use the fir[Em7]st Em7 shape[Em6] for the intr[E]o bit with [G#m7]Em7 and Em6)[A]
