I was surprised not to find this in the archive! But since I didn't find it,
here's my transcription off the "Greatest Hits" lp.

China Grove - Doobie Brothers (transcribed by Steve Wyrick)
Intro: EDAE (repeat 2x), EDA..
[E]When the sun comes up on a sleepy little town
[D]Down a[A]round San Antone[E]
[E]And the folks are risin' for another day
[D]round a[A]bout their [E]homes
C#m B (E,B)
The people of the town are strange
and they're [A]proud of [A]where[A#] the[B]y [C]came,
Well you're [E]talkin' 'bout China Grove [D] [A]
(background vocals: talkin' 'bout China Grove),
Whoa oh [E]ho...
[D]Who [A]ho China [E]Grove[D] [A] [E]
Well the preacher and the teacher, Lord, they're a caution
They are the talk of the town
When the gossip hits the fan, they ain't lyin'
when the sun goes fallin' down
Well they say that the father's insane,
and dear Missus Perkins a game,
[G#m]    [B]  [C#m]Well every day there's a new thing comin',
[F#m7]The ways of an oriental [C#m]view.
[C#m]The sheriff and his buddies with their samurai swords,
[F#]you can even hear the [F#sus4]music at [F#]night.[G#m] [B]
[C#m]And though it's a part of the Lone Star state
[F#m7]The people don't seem to [C#m]care
They'll just keep on lookin' to the east...
instrumental break(6 sets of E,D,A,E like intro, then verse starting from C#m
to end)
1 measure on E (end on beat 1)
