------------------------------------------------------
        ACCIDENTALLY IN LOVE by Counting Crows
------------------------------------------------------

This a simplified version of the lead. Performed this with my bandmates a couple times.
but chords are supposed to just be:
G-C-G-C Em A C for verse,
GACD for chorus...

//I like using the bridge pickup on my strat at this part. To add a little oomph 
with the overdrive pedal.

s- slide
p- pull off
h- hammer on
~- let it ring
^-bend up, pluck.

//I switch to neck here to soften the sound//

(if you're lead, one strum each. rhythm should take care of this cause accents in 
music are awesome)

 G                         C
So she said, "What's the problem baby?"
 G                         C
What's the problem I don't know
                Em                      A
Well maybe I'm in love, think about it every time
                    C
I think about it, can't stop thinking 'bout it


//OD or distort. Neck pick-up.//
    G                    G

How much longer will it take to cure this         Em
Just to cure it 'cause I can't ignore it if it's love
                A
Makes me wanna turn around and face me
        C
But I don't know nothing about love

Come on, come on
The world will follow after
Come on, come on                Em A C~
Because everybody's after...  love...

//keep playing that^^

So I said, "I'm a snowball running"
Running down into the spring
That's coming all this love melting under
Blue skies belting out sunlight, shimmering love

Well baby I surrender to the strawberry ice cream
Never ever end of all this love
Well I didn't mean to do it
But there's no escaping your love
