Transpose
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
GShe was tall and cool and pretty and she dressed as black as coal
Am EmIf 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 EmThen I dream of her behind a wall of sleep
Em GWell she held a bass guitar and she was playing in a band
Am EmAnd 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 GGot 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
GNow I know I'm one of many who would like to be your friend
Am EmAnd 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 EmBehind a wall of sleep
Am G EmBehind a wall of sleep
