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
Give me some sugar, little honey bee
DonÍt be afraid, not gonna hurt you
I wouldnÍt hurt my little honey bee

DonÍt say a word, ïbout what weÍre doinÍ
DonÍt say nothinÍ little honey bee
DonÍt tell your momma, donÍt tell your sister
DonÍt tell your boyfriend, little honey bee

Chorus

(A)                      (C)
She like to call me king bee
                           (D)
She like to buzz ïround my tree
             (F)
I call her honey bee
(A)            (C)
IÍm a man in a trance
                   (D)
IÍm a boy in short pants
                (F)
When I see my honey bee
      (F7)
and IÍve 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
DonÍt say a word, ïbout what weÍre doinÍ
DonÍt say nothinÍ little honey bee

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