From: EBarohn 
Subject: TAB:"Here Comes My Girl" by TOM PETTY and the HEARTBREAKERS

Written by: T.P. & Mike Campbebell/Album: "Damn The Torpedoes"–MCA
(1979)

The main progression for the INTRO and VERSE of the song goes like
this––
Use a 1st finger barre at 2nd fret, move (not slide) it up to 4th fret.
When you play it with the song, you'll get the feel of it:

  A                   B/A            Amaj7               B/A
E-------------------|--------------|-------------------|-------------------
B-2-----------------|-4-----4--5--7|-5-----------------|-4-----------------
G-2-----------------|-4-----4------|-6-----------------|-4-----------------
D-2-----------------|-4-----4------|-7-----------------|-4-----------------
A-0--0--0-0-0--0-0-0|-0--0--0------|-0--0--0-0-0--0-0-0|-0--0--0-0-0--0-0-0
E-------------------|--------------|-------------------|-------------------

VERSE 1:
A
  You know, sometimes, I don't know why
  B/A                               Amaj7       B/A
  But this whole town just seems so hopeless
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/p/petty_tom/here_comes_my_girl_crd.html ]
CHORUS:
                    E      A                  E      A
  Hey here comes my girl        Here comes my girl
F#m            B (normal B chord)
  Yeah and she looks so right She is all I need tonight

CHORUS and then BREAK (see bottom)

VERSE 3:Yeah every time it seems there ain't nothin' left no more

CHORUS then END 
(the ending is just the first and last measures of the VERSE: A to B/A)

BREAK: This break repeats three times, and the fourth time just
       continues the same vamp on the E and A strings, to VERSE 3.
      
  F#5                                                        The numbers 
E-------------------------------------0-|                o     on this  
B------------------------0^2^0--------2-| F#5: | | | | | |   chord diagram
G-------------------------------3-----3-|      T | | | 1 |  (and E9 below) 
D----------------------------------4--4-|      | | | 2 | |   represent the
A-4--4--4-4-4-4-4--4--4---------------4-|      | 3 4 | | |    finger used.
E-2--2--2-2-2-2-2--2--2---------------2-|                  "T" means
Thumb.

The '^' means hammer on the first time, and pull off the second time.
When pulling off, sort of flick the B string so it rings clearly.

Also, the E in the CHORUS can be played with an E9 in the middle:

  E     E9    E                                         o       o
|                 |              Use the            E9: | | | 1 | | 
| /   / /   / / / |     "down/down/up/up/down/up"       | 2 3 | | 4 
|                 |               strum.                | | | | | | 
  1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
                            
                                   ENJOY!
