[Intro] 
G  Gsus4  G  Gsus4  X2

(inbetween gsus4 and g you play this)

     Gsus4          G
e|-3-3-3-3-3-------|
B|-1-1-1-1-1------0|

G              Gsus4
I've been long, along way from here
G               Gsus4
Put on a poncho, played for mosquitoes,
G                                C
And drank 'til I was thirsty again
G                 Gsus4
We went searching through thrift store jungles
G                     Gsus4
Found Geronimo's rifle, Marilyn's shampoo
G                              C
And Benny Goodman's corset and pen
                        D
Well, o.k. I made this up
C                            D
I promised you I'd never give up

[Chorus] x3
N.C               Am
If it makes you happy
C                G    D
It can't be that bad
                  Am
If it makes you happy
C                            G
Then why the hell are you so sad

G  Gsus4   G  Gsus4
You get down, real low down
You listen to coltrane, derail your own train
Well who hasn't been there before?
I come round, around the hard way
Bring you comics in bed,
Scrape the mold off the bread,
And serve you french toast again
Well, o.k. I still get stoned
I'm not the kind of girl you'd take home

The solo at the end is transcribed on the incorrect string. It's suppose to be on the D, not the A. :)

In the album that I have, instead of saying, "Marilyn's shampoo" she said, "Marilyn's lipstick."

The intro pattern is close, but a little confusing and is also
missing the raised 2nd alongside the suspended 4th. Also, you
have to mute that "A" string. Then just hammer those two raises
up and down with the rhthym and let it ring out big-time.

This was shown to me by Jeff Trott's drummer,
Jeff Anthony, a fair picker himself
so take it for what it's worth.

Peace,
