I've never heard the original version of "Oh, Pretty Woman" (I know, it's a
serious lapse in my general education ;-)  I guess, however, that the cover
version done some years ago by Van Halen uses the same simple & powerfull
main riff, chords etc., right?  It goes something like this:

Intro:
               +--- let this note ring for 1 1/2 measure
               v________________________
               /                        \
    e -----------------|-----------------|
    B -----------------|-----------------|
    G -----------------|-----------------|  repeat both measures
    D ---------0-------|-----------------|
    A -2-2---2---------|-----------------|
    E -0-0-4-----------|-----------------|
       1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &   1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 


and then over to the main riff which is just the following, usually repeated
4 times:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/o/orbison_roy/pretty_woman_tab.html ]
    e -----------------
    B -----------------
    G -----------------
    D ---------0-4-2-0-
    A -2-2---2---------
    E -0-0-4-----------
       1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 


Disclaimer:
  I haven't heard the record for some time.  I'm pretty sure E.v.H. adds
  various fills (harmonics, dives, trills etc.) from time to time.  Anyway,
  you should have gotten the main idea -- now go and add your own original
  stuff ;-)

Enjoy,
  Kim
