I Wish I Was a Girl  Counting Crows

Along with "All of my friends" this is the coolest song on the album
you need two guitars, or one acoustic and you can forget the riff at the bridge and play rhythm (I think it sounds best on acoustic)
Follow up to "goodnight elizibeth" (Recovering the satellites)
Esus4: 022200
Intro/verse (the E-riff)
[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]  
[F#m] [A] [B]  
[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.
