Well, after months of living off the labor of everyone else that has
Contributed both here and at Nevada, this is my first shot at
Transcribing something. I used my black on white US Strat hooked up to
A cheap Dean Markely practice amp.

Honey Bee by Tom Petty
From the Album: Wildflowers

Intro Riff (same throughout song) Bass plays something similar to
Guitar 1 riff.

Repeat 2x

( A)
Come on now, give me some sugar

DоnХт be afraid, not gonna hurt you
I wоuldnХт hurt my little honey bee

DоnХт tell your boyfriend, little honey bee

Chorus

( A)                      ( C)
She like to call me king bee
                           ( D)
She like to buzz Фrоund my tree
             ( F)
I call her honey bee
( A)            ( C)
IХm a man in a trance
                   ( D)
IХm a boy in short pants
                ( F)
When I see my honey bee
      ( F7)
And IХvе got something to say

(repeat intro 4x, guitar solo)

( A)
Look here now, peace in the valley
Peace in the valley with my honey bee
DоnХт say a word, Фвоuт what wеХrе dоinХ
DоnХт say nотнinХ little honey bee

Chorus
( A)                    ( C)
She give me her monkey hand
                ( D)
And a Rambler sedan
                ( F)
IХm the king of Milwaukee
( A)                   ( C)
Her juju beads are so nice
                           ( D)
She kissed my third cousin twice
                   ( F)
IХm the king of Pomona
      ( F7)
And IХvе got something to say

Repeat riff to fade

That should do it. If anyone has the gumption to transcribe the solo, I
Would appreciate a copy.
