Great song! The original is in Eb, if you want to play along, just tune down a 
half step. The kick-in-the-pants here is the D to Em. At the start of the verse, 
the beat is on the 3 and the 4 of the bar. The other D to Em (I've indicated by 
parentheses) the beat is on the "and 4 and" (8th notes) of the bar. 
Intro   (D)     Em      (D)     Em
Verse 1
D            Em                                            G 
She had hair like Jeannie Shrimpton back in 1965
Am                                              (D)     Em 
She had legs that never ended, I was halfway paralyzed
D                                                           Em  G
She was tall and cool and pretty and she dressed as black as coal
Am                                                  (D) 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                             D                  Em
Then I dream of her behind a wall of sleep
Verse 2
D       Em                                                    G
Well she held a bass guitar and she was playing in a band
Am                                                     (D)      Em
And she stood just like Bill Wyman, now I am her biggest fan
D       Em                                              G
Now I know I'm one of many who would like to be your friend 
Am                                          (D) Em
And I've got to find a way to let you know I'm not like them
Chorus
Verse 3
D       Em      G       Am      (D)     Em
(Instrumental)
D       Em      G       Am      (D)     Em
(Instrumental)
Chorus  
Verse 4
D       Em                                                           G
Got your number from a friend of mine who lives in your home town
Am                                                  (D) Em
Called you up to have a drink your roommate said you weren't around
D                                                   Em  G
Now I know I'm one of many who would like to be your friend 
Am                                                       (D)    Em
And I've got to find a way to let you know I'm not like them
Chorus
Outro
Am            G Em 
Behind a wall of sleep
Am            G Em
Behind a wall of sleep
Am            G Em
Behind a wall of sleep
(D)     Em      (D)     Em      D       Em
