This is the Green Day song Basket Case from the 1994 album Dookie. This version is a 
more bluesy acoustic version, played slower than the original, all open 7th chords instead 
of the original power chords. It sounds great played with an acoustic.

Verse

D7               A7
Do you have the time
B7                Fmaj7
To listen to me whine
G7                 D7                A7
About nothing and everything all at once
D7            A7
I am one of those
B7          Fmaj7
Melodramatic fools
G7                D7                A7
Neurotic to the bone no doubt about it

Chorus

G7           A7              D7
Sometimes I give myself the creeps
G7            A7                  D7
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
G7                  A7
It all keeps adding up
D7          Cmaj7    B7
I think I'm cracking up
G7             A7
Am I just paranoid?
            D7
I'm just stoned

Interlude

D7 A7 B7 A7 x 2

Verse

D7            A7
I went to a shrink
B7             Fmaj7
To analyze my dreams
G7                    D7                      A7
She says it's lack of sex that's bringing me down
G7            A7
I went to a whore
B7                    Fmaj7
He said my life is a bore
G7                    D7                      A7
And quit my whining 'cause it's bringing her down


Chorus

G7           A7              D7
Sometimes I give myself the creeps
G7            A7                  D7
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
G7                  A7
It all keeps adding up
D7          Cmaj7    B7
I think I'm cracking up
G7             A7
Am I just paranoid?
            D7
I'm just stoned

This is mostly correct but the B & F# are minor, not a major. I think the A works nicely as a seventh chord but the C, G, and D shouldn't be, in my opinion. Personal choice though. Just thought I'd mention the minor chords because it makes a huge difference! Nice work.
