Jessie's Girl
Rick Springfield
transcribed by Richard Helms 

Intro:
D    A     Bm     G     A    D

Play twice  (this progression is also 
repeated throughout most of the song)



D      A    Bm     G     A    D 
Jessie is a friend
Yeah I know, he's been a good friend of mine
But lately somethin's changed, it ain't hard to define
Jessie's got himself a girl, and I wanna make her mine

Chorus:
          D            Bm           G    A    D
And she's watchin' him with those eyes
And she's lovin' him with that body, I just know it
And he's holdin' her in his arms, late late at night

A                         D
Y'know, I wish that I had Jessie's girl
A5  B5  A5  B5          A5    D
            I wish that I had Jessie's girl
A   B   A   Bm  G           D      G          A
                Where can I find a woman like that?



I'll play along with the charade
There doesn't seem to be a reason to change
Y'know I feel so dirty when they start talkin' cute
I wanna tell her that I love her but the point is prob'ly moot

[Chorus twice]

Bridge:
G   D   A
G   D   A   G

        D              A                    G
And I'm lookin' in the mirror all the time
Wond'rin' 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?

F#  B  F#  G#m F# G#m F#     (repeat many times)

        D            Bm     G          A
Tell me, where can I find a woman like that?
