This is a slightly varied version of the original song. 
Most of its the same but it has a few tweaks here and there. 
Sounds great when you're playing with just a couple of guitars. 

C - X32O1O
Am - XO221O
Em - O22OOO
C/F - O3321O
Em/G - 32OOOO

Intro Riff - Julia plays this at various points throughout the song.

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---9--6--9--------9--6--9---------9--6--9--------9--6--9------------|
G|------------5--6-----------8--6------------5--6-----------8--6--5/6-|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------|


With the exception of the Bridge the rest of the song is made 
up mostly of chords C, Am, Em. 
They are muted in the original version of the song but i find the 
acoustic version sounds much better if left un-muted.

[Intro] C, Am, Em

[Verse]

          C             
She said, hello mister
Am                 Em
Pleased to meet ya
C
I want to hold her,
Am                 Em
I want to kiss her,
C
She smelled of daisies, 
Am                 Em
She smelled of daisies,
C
She drive me crazy,
Am                 Em            Em/G
She drive me crazy
       
[Chorus]
 
C                     Am               Em

            C         Am               Em
Hey, hey
            C         Am               Em
Hey, hey


[Verse]

C 
Be my lover
