Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Adaption of Jacob Richter tab.  Chords are the same but played
with a CAPO on the 4th fret. I think Jimmy Stafford actually plays bar
chords around the 7th and 9th frets but this sounds just as good and is
easier

Notes - Chords are played on the off beat and palm muted between each. CAPO ON 
4TH. Have a listen and Enjoy playing ;)

[Intro]
Am

[Verse 1]
Am                                     F
  On the other side of a street I knew Stood a girl that looked like you
C                          G
I guess that's déjà vu But I thought this can't be true
      Am                       F
Cause you moved to west L.A or New York or Santa Fe
   C                           G
Or where ever to get away from me

[Pre-Chorus]
Dm                    F
 Oh but that one night Was more than just right
Am                 G
 I didn't leave you cause I was all through
Dm                   F
 Oh I was overwhelmed and frankly scared as hell
E                  E7
 Because I really fell for you

[Chorus]
F                C                    G                   Am  G     
 Oh I swear to ya I'll be there for ya This is not a drive by
F              C                   G                    Edim       
 Just a shy guy looking for a 2-ply Hefty bag to hold my love
F                 C                   G                       Am                        
 When you move me everything is groovy They don't like it sue me
             G     F               C                                                    
 The way you do me Oh I swear to ya I'll be there for ya
Dm                  E7                                                           
 This is not a drive by

[Verse 2]
Am                                     F
 On the other side of a downward spiral My love for you went viral
C                          G              Am
 And I loved you every mile you drove away But now here you are again
   F                 
 So let's skip the "how you been" 
    C                                   G
 And get down to the "more than friends" at last

[Pre-Chorus]
Dm                    F
 Oh but that one night Was still the highlight
Am                 G
 I didn't neeed you until I came to
Dm                  F
 And I was overwhelmed and frankly scared as hell
E                  E7
 Because I really fell for you



[Chorus]
F                C                    G                   Am   B     
 Oh I swear to ya I'll be there for ya This is not a drive by
F              C                   G                    Edim       
 Just a shy guy looking for a 2-ply Hefty bag to hold my love
F                 C                   G                       Am                        
 When you move me everything is groovy They don't like it sue me
             G     F               C                                                    
 The way you do me Oh I swear to ya I'll be there for ya
Dm                  E7                                                           
 This is not a drive by

[Bridge]
Dm7       Am        F       G  F
Please believe that when I leave
        E             Am                 
There's nothing up my sleeve but love for 
G
You And a little time to get my head together too

[Verse 3]
Am                                   F
 On the other side of a street I knew Stood a girl that looked like you
C                          G
 I guess that's déjà vu But I thought this can't be true, Cause

[Chorus]
F                C                    G                   Am   G     
 Oh I swear to ya I'll be there for ya This is not a drive by
F              C                   G                    Edim       
 Just a shy guy looking for a 2-ply Hefty bag to hold my love
F                 C                   G                       Am                        
 When you move me everything is groovy They don't like it sue me
             G     F               E                                                    
 The way you do me Oh I swear to ya I'll be there for ya
Dm                 E7

Useless ID's bridge is absolutely spot on. Best tab of the bridge on any of the versions I've seen
