This is my first tab and I figured I should start with an easy one.
Great album, great song, and I don't know why nobody's done this one yet.

C G
   If I were to walk to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston
C G
   Well, first I'd go to the room where they keep the Cezanne
C G
   But if I had by my side a girlfriend
            C G
Then I could   look through the paintings
                  C     G
I could look right through them
G                                     C      D
Because I'd have found something that I understand
G               C     G
I understand a girlfriend.

          G     C
That's a girl friend
         G       D     C
That's a G-I-R-L-F-R-E-N
           G
That's a girlfriend, baby
        C             D       G
That's something that I understand
Alright

C D G

I walk through the Fenway, I have my heart in my hands
G               C    G
I understand a girlfriend

         G     C
That's a girl friend
     G       D     C
Said G-I-R-L-F-R-E-N
           G
That's a girlfriend, baby
        C             D       G
That's something that I understand

Easy enough right? The solo is actually longer than what i tabbed but i got bored about 
through.
The rest is just variations of the same notes and you can improvise.
