Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


I Wish I Was a Girl   Counting Crows

[E]    [Esus4]         [E]  [Esus4]      [E]                
this riff until...
"You're surprised, and then you wake."

Prechorus

[G#m]    For all the things you're [A]losing.
You might as well re[E]sign yourself to try [Esus4]and make a[E] change.
[G#m]   And I'm going down to [A]Hollywood.
They're gonna make a [B]movie from the things
That they find crawling round my brain.

Chorus

[A]   I [B]wish I was a [C#m]girl
So [B]that you could be[A]lieve me
And [B]I could shake this [C#m]static every [B]time
I try to [A]sleep
I [B]wish for all the [C#m]world
That [B]I could say
"Hey, E[E]lizabeth, you know I'm doing all r[F#]ight
These [A]days."    [B]

Teh Bridge

The E riff...
and then...this with the E riff after another verse, or two and a chorus

--9--9--7--7----
----9--9--9--9--

And in one of thes[A]e dreams
You forg[E]ive me.
It makes me think of[F#m]    the bad decisions
That [A]keep you at home.
How could [E]anyone else have [A]changed,
[F#m]    But these are wrong conclusions
That [A]leave you alone.
How could [E]everyone rearr[A]ange?
How could [E]everyone else have [A]changed?
What I [F#m]see I be[A]lieve.

[E]For all the things I'm losing
I might as well r[E]esign myself to [Esus4]try and make a [E]change.
[G#m]   And I'm going down to [A]Hollywood.
They're gonna make a [B]movie from the things
That they find crawling round my brain.

Chorus again

Second bridge
(counting crows have so many wonderful emotional changes in their songs)

[F#m]      [A]   [B]                            
Well I can't [F#m]sleep at [A]ni[B]ght.
Well I can't [F#m]sleep at [A]ni[B]ght.
Well I can't [F#m]sleep at [A]ni[B]ght.
Well I can't [F#m]sleep at [A]ni[B]ght.
