Jessies Girl  Rick Springfield

[-----]Intro:  C G Am F G C  (2x)
Verse:
C G Am F G C (4x)
Jessie is a friend
Yeah I know, he's been a good friend of mine
But lately something's changed, it ain't hard to define
Jessie's got himself a girl, and I wanna make her mine
Pre-chorus:
[C]And she's [C]watching him with those [Am]eyes[F] [G]
[C]And she's [C]loving him with that [Am]body, I [F]just [G]know it
[C]And he's [C]holding her in his a[Am]rms, [F]late [G]late at [C]night[G]
Chorus:
(see note at end)
G C G Am Gsus4 Am Gsus4 (2x)
You know, I wish that I had Jessie's girl
I wish that I had Jessie's girl
[F]Where [G]can I [C]find her, a [Am]woman like [G]that?
Verse 2:
I play along with the charade
There doesn't seem to be a reason to change
You know I feel so dirty when they start talking cute
I want to tell her that I love her but the point is probably moot
Pre-chorus (same as above):
'Cause she's watching him with those eyes
And she's loving him with that body, I just know it
And he's holding her in his arms, late late at night
Chorus:
You know I wish that I had Jessie's girl
I wish that I had Jessie's girl
Where can I find her, a woman like that?
Repeat chorus, last line twice (chords change slightly):
Like Jessie's girl
I wish that I had Jessie's girl
F G C F G C <-- (F instead of Am)
Where can I find her, a woman
[F]Where [G]can I [C]find her, a [Am]woman like [G]that?
Bridge:
(Lead plays the chords shown below, as indicated;
everyone else stays on F through the bridge,
until the final G, at "supposed to be")
F C G (2x) (F,G = D shapes at 5 and 7, C at 7)
F C G (4x)
And I'm looking in the mirror all the time
Wond'ring what she don't see in me
Yeah I've been funny I've been cool with the lines
Ain't that the way love's supposed to be?
E A E F#m Esus4 F#m Esus4 (4x)
(Just like the chorus riff, but 1.5 steps lower)
Tell me, [F]where [G]can I [C]find her a [Am]woman like [G]that?
Solo: Verse chords ( C G Am F G C ) 4x
Chorus (with one extra repeat):
You know I wish that I had Jessie's girl
I wish that I had Jessie's girl
I want Jessie's girl
Where can I find her, a woman like that?
Chorus again, as above but without last line:
Like Jessie's girl
I wish that I had Jessie's girl
I want, I want Jessie's girl
[G]   [C]   [G]   [C]   [G]   [F]   [C]                                                                        
----------------------------------

Note:
For the chorus, you can try it with open chords, like this:
    [G]    [C]        [G]   [Am]   [Gsus4]      [Am]   [Gsus4]                                       
e----------------------------------------------------
B-------1-1-1---0---1---1---1---1--------------------
G---0---0-0-0---0---2---0---2---0--------------------
D---0---2-2-2---0---2---0---2---0--------------------
A---2---3-3-3----------------------------------------
E---3------------------------------------------------

or barred like so:
    [G]    [C]        [G]   [Am]   [Gsus4]      [Am]   [Gsus4]                                       
e----------------------------------------------------
B-------5-5-5----------------------------------------
G-------5-5-5-------5---5---5---5--------------------
D---5---5-5-5---5---7---5---7---5--------------------
A---5---3-3-3---5---7---5---7---5--------------------
E---3-----------3---5--------------------------------

(Since the recording is a full step higher, I suppose
it's the barre chords, but the open version sounds
better on my acoustic)
Enjoy,
Bob.
