    Intro:

    / D - - - / x4

     

    D (4)                    

    I pulled a mad scheme all around the north side

    G (2)                    D (2)

    Chasing a sweet thing so unsatisfied

                 A (2)                          D (2)

    Every time I try, Crazy about a north side gal

     

    D (4) 

    I got some good talk But not enough game

    G (2)                       D (2)

    Wooing the sweet thing, Oh ain't it a shame

                   A (2)                        D (2)

    Every time I try, crazy about a north side gal

     

    Chorus:

                   D (4)         

    Well she gets colder  every time I try to hold her

                       G (2)                      D (2)

    Pleasantly saying “No” to bolder younger gentlemen

                 A (2)                                 D (2)

    All of 'em try   they're crazy 'bout a north side gal

     

    Sax solo:

    / D - - - / - - - - / - - - - / - - - - /

    / G - - - / - - - - / D - - - / - - - - /

    / A - - - / - - - - / D - - - / - - - - /

     

    Guitar solo:

    / G - - - / - - - - / D - - - / - - - - /

    / A - - - / - - - - / D - - - / - - - - /

     

    D (4) 

    I got some money, and some wheels to drive

    G (2)                   D (2)

    Old beat up guitars and old sleazy dives

     

                   A (2)                            D (2)

    Every song I sing It swings about a north side gal

     

    Chorus:

                   D (4)         

    Well she gets colder  every time I try to hold her

                       G (2)                      D (2)

    Pleasantly saying “No” to bolder younger gentlemen

                 A (2)                                 D (2)

    All of 'em try   they're crazy 'bout a north side gal

     

                          D (2)

    Well I said they're crazy 'bout a north side gal

    D (2)

    Crazy 'bout a north side gal

    D (2)

    Crazy 'bout a north side gal

    D                         D (end on the 2+)

    Crazy 'bout a north side gal

     

    End
