This file is part of a collection that (moreso than the rest of the site) are not meant to be detailed or accurate transcriptions of the original recordings. They're just some simple chord charts that I made for my own use, some of them my own arrangements.

We got tailors to fix it if it comes out wrong We got all kinds of sweatshirts, you can take your pick With the collars ripped off, like in that Flashdance flick CHORUS 2: Our prices are low, my staff is underpaid You can buy off the rack or have it custom-made And it's all guaranteed to never shrink or fade 'Cause of my reputation as the King of Suede If you need a tuxedo for your junior prom We can get you the best one that's made in Taiwan We got jackets with patches on the elbows too And we'll sell 'em all factory-direct to you CHORUS 3: Well I never made it past the second grade It took all of my life for me to learn this trade But my friends are all thinking that I've got it made 'Cause I'm known the world over as the King of Suede 1ST BRIDGE: G F G F G There's a two-for-one sale on our three-piece suits Check out our suede pajamas and our suede-covered boots You can try on our suede underwear if you choose F G F Am Do what you want, but don't step on my blue suede shoes INSTRUMENTAL, verse chords (King of Suede) 2ND BRIDGE, 8 bars: Gm7 Don't miss out on our giant liquidation sale Look for our color catalog in next week's mail There's a sale on our double-knit slacks today It's the same old sale as yesterday CHORUS 3: Thirty years in the same location I have stayed There I am right next door to Willy's Fun Arcade I got tough competition, but I'm not afraid 'Cause it's my destiny to be the King of Suede CHORUS OUTRO: King of Suede, King of Suede, King of Suede I'll always be King of Suede Transcribed 2021-10-21 by T-rev More tab available at www.t-rev.net x0203x A(m)7sus4 3x003x Gno3 13x03x Fadd9,13 02x03x Em7 x32013 C xx0013 Gsus4/D 0x2013 C/E 133211 F 350063 Gm7
