I don't know about the "who's gonna star the sunshine" bridge. On 
the album, all I can hear after the first A chord, are bass notes. Live,
it looks like they're playing some kind of chords I can't pick out,
but I've tried at the bottom.  I think playing power chords with the
bass roots works.  Let me know if you have any suggestions.

I think this is the voicing for the intro
A=X07650, E=022100

A E A E A E A---

Jackie, you yourself said it best when you said:
    "There's been a break in the continuum.
The United States used to be lots of fun.
              A           E           A             E
Back when the man and the myth of the sands and the cliffs
           A                                          A-F-E   
composed a symphony to good works and better business 

A  A-F-E   A  A-F-G

Jackie, you yourself said it best when you said"
    "One day we'll look upon a washed-up Atlantic;
     get our kicks on an ocean of antics."
      A        E    A           E             A
And, "making        history has never been so easy..." 

   A            B        
So visualize success but don't believe your eyes.
          G#m      C#m        F#m       Am
There's a world of wisdom and pain to despise
         A          E            A       E         
and when people get paid just to set you straight it means... 


A*                          B*
    Are you gonna start the sunshine?
D*                          C#*         (Repeat)
    are you gonna start the sunshine

A         B 
Visualize success!
A         B
Visualize success!
A         B
Visualize success, but don't believe your eyes!
         G#m            C#m               F#m        Am
What's a version of the world without the will to despise it?
         A          E            A       E         
And when people get paid just to set you straight it means... 

   A         E                  A         E
Jackie! Hey, hey, hey, hey!  Jackie! Hey, hey, hey, hey!
   A         E                  A         E
Jackie! Hey, hey, hey, hey!  Jackie! Hey, hey, hey, hey!
   A                            E

Notes for "who's gonna start the sunshine"

I tried to make up chords out of the harmonies,  but I'm not 
getting it and I'm tired.  Why hasn't someone already done this for me?
Sometimes you want to just play a song and there's no tab out there...

Maybe they're playing this live?  I can hear the high b.

Aadd9=XX7657  B=XX4447  D6=XX7777  C#=XX666X

or just play power chords.

Judging by the lyrics, this tab is for the song "Jackie" from the album Mass Romantic, and not "Jackie Dressed in Cobras" which is from Twin Cinema

It is indeed "Jackie" from Mass Romantic, and was submitted as such. Someone from UG must not have realized there are two New Pornographer songs with "Jackie" in the title and renamed my submission. Not sure how to get this fixed...any ideas?
