Counting Crows
I Wish I Was A Girl

Intro: Timing and number of repetitions I am not going to bother with, because it changes...but this is basically was is played in the beginning, with E chords strumed to beat in the back-round...it also is heard randomly throughout the song...
E:--------4p2---*||----------*||------4p2h4p2---*||
B:--5p3h5-------*||---5**-3**-*||--5**------------*||

** these notes are played for a bit, but I don't remember how many times...just listen to the song...it's easy!

Major chords that are in the song are E major and A major bar chord
E: 022100
A: 566755

The little riff before the last chorus goes:
B:---7-5-7-5-9-5-9-5--:||

The chords switch back and forth in the verses and then in the ending (But I can't sleep at night...) the chords are just E major...I'm pretty sure...
The parts whern Adam isn't singing, and it is just the guitar is the same E major --> A (bar) chords in that strumming pattern...which truly kicks ass on the CD and is even better in concert!!!!

Lyrics:

The devil's in the dreaming
He tells you I'm not sleeping in my hotel room alone
With nothing to believe in
You dive into the traffic rising up
And it's so quiet
You're surprised
And then you wake

For all the things you're losing
You might as well resign yourself to try and make a change
I'm going down to Hollywood
They're gonna make a movie from the things that they find crawling round my brian
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/c/counting_crows/i_wish_i_was_a_girl_tab.html ]
I wish I was a girl so that you could believe me
And I could shake this static everytime I try to sleep
I wish for all the world that I could say,
"Hey Elizabeth, you know, I'm doing alright these days."

The devil's in the dreaming
You see yourself descending from a building to the ground
You watch the sky receding
You spin to see the traffic rising up
And it's so quiet
You're surprised
And then you wake

For all the things you're losing
You might as well resign yourself to try and make a change
I'm going down to Hollywood
They're gonna make a movie from the things that they find crawling round my brian

I wish I was a girl so that you could believe me
And I could shake this static everytime I try to sleep
I wish for all the world that I could say,
"Hey Elizabeth, you know, I'm doing alright these days."

In one of these dreams, you forgive me
It makes me think of the bad decisions that keep you at home
How could anyone else have changed?
All these wrong conclusions that leave you alone
How could everyone rearrange?
How could everyone else have changed?
What I see...I believe...

For all the things you're losing
You might as well resign yourself to try and make a change
I'm going down to Hollywood
They're gonna make a movie from the things that they find crawling round my brian

I wish I was a girl so that you could believe me
And I could shake this static everytime I try to sleep
I wish for all the world that I could say,
"Hey Elizabeth, you know, I'm doing alright these days."

I am a bassist, so this is probably not perfect, but I think it is pretty accurate...
