Absolutely great song by the Smithereens, and easy to play and sing.  The chorus 
could be subdivided more but this charts a solid course.  There is some controvery 
about the girl named.  The right name is Jeannie Shrimpton, an "it girl" from the 
1960s, check her out on Google Images.  Good Luck,  John Pineau

[Verse 1]

        Em                                  G  
She had hair like Jeannie Shrimpton back in 1965
        Am                           Em  
She had legs that never ended, I was halfway paralyzed
        Em                               G
She was tall and cool and pretty and she dressed as black as coal
       Am                              G              Em
If she asked me to I'd murder, I would gladly lose my soul


[CHORUS]

      G              Em             
Now I lie in bed and think of her 
     G            Em 
Some-times I even weep
       Am              G              Em
Then I dream of her be-hind a wall of sleep


[Verse 2]

         Em                             G
Well she held a bass guitar and she was playing in a band
        Am                                G              Em
And she stood just like Bill Wyman, now I am her biggest fan
      Em                             G                         
Now I know I'm one of many who would like to be your friend 
         Am                           G                 Em 
And I've got to find a way to let you know I'm not like them


[CHORUS]

      G              Em             
Now I lie in bed and think of her 
     G            Em 
Some-times I even weep
       Am              G              Em
Then I dream of her be-hind a wall of sleep


[Verse 3]

         Em                               G
Got your number from a friend of mine who lives in your home town
           Am                              G                Em  
Called you up to have a drink your roomate said you weren't around
      Em                             G
Now I know I'm one of many who would like to be your friend 
         Am                           G                 Em
And I've got to find a way to let you know I'm not like them


[CHORUS]

      G              Em             
Now I lie in bed and think of her 
     G            Em 
Some-times I even weep
       Am              G              Em
Then I dream of her be-hind a wall of sleep


[Outro]

Am       G       Em 
Behind a wall of sleep
Am       G       Em
Behind a wall of sleep
Am       G       Em
Behind a wall of sleep

After this was posted, I noticed the chord changes became mis-alligned, generally slipped slightly to the right margin. You may have to adjust them a bit to the left to be accurate. Good Luck, John

During the "Then I dream of her...",
It goes from C to D instead of Am to G..
check out some of live performances and
you can see their hands making the chords..
