Y'know, you really ought to ascertain whom you're dealing with before you so pompously try to "call someone's bluff." If I call a song "ridiculously simple," doesn't it imply that I might have a good bit of higher musical knowledge?
>like put up the tab for "Just Like Betty Page"?
Well, I'm much more of a pianist than a guitarist, so I'm not so good with tabs. But then, no one else has posted tabs either. (I assume you DO know the difference between a chord chart and a tab chart.) But for the chords, see below.

Just Like Betty Page
Hey hey hey
Can I see you again?
It's been such fun,
What we've done,
I should like to do it forever
As far as I can see
Roped and trussed just like Dear Betty Page A+.....
That's it, really. The whole point of many early Jazz Butcher songs is that they use very cliched "lounge" chord progressions like the above. Now this song ISN'T particularly simple, so I wouldn't scoff at someone asking for these chords. But if you need help identifying the chords for a basic I-IV-V song like "Mind Like a Playgroup," then your guitar-playing probably isn't ready to tackle playing other people's songs yet anyway.
