Riff 2:
To me, it sounds like riff 2 is part of the bass line, but for playing solo acoustic, it 
pretty good to add it in.

Chorus:

C          C/B        Am
  When you close your eyes

       G             D/F#
Do you like what you see?

F
Inside your mind

C            C/B     Am
  And do you like to dream

          G      D/F#
About the stars above

F
Once in a while?

Play (Riff 1) x2
over the verse chords of Am, G, D/F#

Verse 1:

Am       G         D/F#   (Riff 2)
   Don't go to the otherside

Am     G       D/F#   (Riff 2)
   For nothin' at all

Am           G       D/F#    (Riff 2)
   And it'll make it worth your while

Am       G              D/F#   (No Riff 2)
   Gonna break down that wall


F(single upstroke strum, let ring out)
        Gonna take the fall


CHORUS
(with acoustic and doubling distorted electrics)


Play:
(Riff 1) x2
over the verse chords of Am, G, D/F#
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/d/dishwalla/once_in_a_while_tab.html ]
Am       G         D/F#   (Riff 2)
   Don't go to the other side

Am           G           D/F#   (Riff 2)
   You might mess up that hair

Am      G                  D/F#   (Riff 2)
   Just wait you might change your mind

Am               G           D/F#   (No Riff 2)
   To think that people might care

F
     About your hair anyway


CHORUS
(with acoustic and doubling electric guitars)

Play:
(Riff 1 and Solo) x4
over the verse chords of Am, G, D/F#
[Since I'm not one for doing exactly the same solo, I'd just pull out a slide and go 
in A Blues or something.  Whatever floats your boat.  He does use a slide though, for just 
every solo/interlude in the song.]

Bridge:
The chords here are strummed once, and where the chord is in parenthesis, it is implied, 
it's not actually played, but it's tonality is there.

Am                 D/F#
   Don't go to the other side

Am                       (D/F#)
   Just get down on your knees

(Am)                       (D/F#)
   And show me what you are made of

(Am)               (D/F#)
   I'm begging you please

F
   Just please go away


CHORUS x2 (second time to end with some solo guitar work in A)


C        C/B       Am         G
   Don't go to the other side

(G)       D/F#
Once in a while

F
Once in a while

C        C/B       Am         G
   Don't go to the other side

(G)       D/F#
Once in a while

F(let ring out to end)
Onnnnnnnnnnce in a while
