well here's backstreet girl, off the album flowers. in the G of "I don't want you...."
and every other 1st and 3rd line, play it like this:
e------2-------------------|
b--------3-----------------|
g--------------------------|
d--------------------------|
a--------------------------|
E--3-----------------------|

it's kinda like a g on the top, and a d on the bottom.
Am7:  you to be hiiiiiigh
        e-----0---------------|
        b-------1-------------|
        g---------------------|
        d---------------------|
        a--0------------------|
        E---------------------|
D: I don't want
e-------2---------------|
b----------3------------|
g----2------------------|
d--0--------------------|
a-----------------------|
E-----------------------|

Am7: you to be down
e--------0------------|
b-----1-----1---------|
g---------------------|
d---------------------|
a--0------------------|
E---------------------|
so those are the finger pickings. here's the chords now that you know how to pick 'em.

anyways, here we go.


[G] I don't want [Am7]you to be high [G]  [C] [G]
[D] I don't want [Am7] you to be down [G] [C] [G]
[G] Don't want to [Am7] tell you no lie  [G]   [C] [G]
[D] Just want [Am7] you to be around [G] [C] [G]

[Am] Please come right [Am/C] up to my ears [E7} {Am}
[Bm] You will be [C] able to [G] hear what I say [D]

other verses:

Don't want you out in my world
Just you be my backstreet girl

Please don't be part of my life
Please keep yourself to yourself
Please don't you bother my wife
That way you won't get no help

Don't try to ride on my horse
You're rather common and coarse anyway

Don't want you out in my world
Just you be my backstreet girl

Please don't you call me at home
Please don't come knocking at night
Please never ring on the phone
Your manners are never quite right

Please take the favors I grant
Curtsy and look nonchalant, just for me

Don't want you part of my world
Just you be my backstreet girl

There are some serious errors with this tab tbh.

And it's a C...just listen closely to the song, the root is a C although if you don't play the correct root note along with the picking pattern of the song it's easy to be misled as the other notes resemble the shape of Am7
