 D A Bm   G A D

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

Pre-Chorus
           D            A         Bm      G  A  D
And she's watching him with those eyes,
           D           A        Bm      G   A      D
And she's loving him with that body, I just know it,
          D            A      Bm   G    A      D
And he's holding her in his arms, late late at night

Chorus
 A                            A  D          A  Bm  Asus4
  You know, I wish that I had Jessie's girl,
  Bm        Asus4 A  D          A  Bm  Asus4  Bm  Asus4
I wish that I had Jessie's girl,
 G      A     D           Bm         A
  Where can I find her, a woman like that?

I play along with the charade,
There doesn't seem to be a reason to change,
You know I feel so dirty when they start talking cute,
I want to tell her that I love her but the point is probably moot.

Pre-chorus  Chorus  Chorus

                              A  D          A  Bm  Asus4
  You know, I wish that I had Jessie's girl,
  Bm        Asus4 A  D          A  Bm  Asus4  Bm  Asus4
I wish that I had Jessie's girl,
 G      A     D           G     A    D
  Where can I find her, a woman,
 G      A     D           Bm         A
  Where can I find her, a woman like that?

 G        D               A
  And I'm looking in the mirror all the time,
 G          D               A
  Wondering what she don't see in me
 G               D                A
  Yeah I've been funny I've been cool with the lines
 G        D                  A
Ain't that the way love's supposed to be?

sounds alright I think, but In my opinion the song sounds better with power chords.

At the beginning of the song and the verses, yea. But he plays regular chords near the head of the guitar. Watch the video.
