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

Repeat 2x

(A)
Come on now, give me some sugar
Give me some sugar, little honey bee
DonÕt be afraid, not gonna hurt you
I wouldnÕt hurt my little honey bee

(A) 
DonÕt say a word, Ôbout what weÕre doinÕ
DonÕt say nothinÕ little honey bee
DonÕt tell your momma, donÕt tell your sister
DonÕt tell your boyfriend, little honey bee

Chorus

(A)                      (C)
She like to call me king bee
                           (D)
She like to buzz Ôround my tree
             (F)
I call her honey bee
(A)            (C)
IÕm a man in a trance
                   (D)
IÕm a boy in short pants
                (F)
When I see my honey bee
      (F7)
and IÕve 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
DonÕt say a word, Ôbout what weÕre doinÕ
DonÕt say nothinÕ little honey bee

Chorus
(A)                    (C)
She give me her monkey hand
                (D)
And a Rambler sedan
                (F)
IÕm the king of Milwaukee
(A)                   (C)
Her juju beads are so nice
                           (D)
She kissed my third cousin twice
                   (F)
IÕm the king of Pomona
      (F7)
And IÕve 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.
