Smithereens - Behind The Wall Of Sleep chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Absolutely great song by the Smithereens, and easy to play and sing.  The chorus 
could be subdivided more but this charts a solid course.  There is some controvery 
about the girl named.  The right name is Jeannie Shrimpton, an "it girl" from the 
1960s, check her out on Google Images.  Good Luck,  John Pineau

Em                                  G  
She had hair like Jeannie Shrimpton back in 1965
        Am                           Em  
She had legs that never ended, I was halfway paralyzed
                                         G
She was tall and cool and pretty and she dressed as black as coal
       Am                              Em
If she asked me to I'd murder, I would gladly lose my soul

CHORUS:
G                    Em             
Now I lie in bed and think of her 
G                Em 
Sometimes I even weep
       Am           G                Em
Then I dream of her behind a wall of sleep


Em                                      G
Well she held a bass guitar and she was playing in a band
        Am                                Em
And she stood just like Bill Wyman, now I am her biggest fan
                                     G                         
Now I know I'm one of many who would like to be your friend 
         Am                                    Em 
And I've got to find a way to let you know I'm not one of them

[CHORUS]

Em                                        G
Got your number from a friend of mine who lives in your home town
           Am                              Em  
Called you up to have a drink your roomate said you weren't around
                                     G
Now I know I'm one of many who would like to be your friend 
         Am                                    Em
And I've got to find a way to let you know I'm not like them

[CHORUS]
Am       G       Em 
Behind a wall of sleep
Am       G       Em
Behind a wall of sleep
Am       G       Em
Behind a wall of sleep
