                Jessie's Girl
(Rick Springfield)


I see requests for this periodically, so here's enough
to get you started (no solo, sorry).  The recording is
in D (full step higher).  It's a little easier to play
with open chords in C. (try a capo on the 2nd fret)

-----
Intro:  C G Am F G C  (2x)

Verse:

C      G    Am     F G C  (4x)
Jessie is a friend
Yeah I know, he's been a good friend of mine
But lately something's changed, it ain't hard to define
Jessie's got himself a girl, and I wanna make her mine

Pre-chorus: 

C         (C)                     Am    F  G
And she's watching him with those eyes
C         (C)                  Am      F    G
And she's loving him with that body, I just know it
C        (C)                 Am   F    G       C     G
And he's holding her in his arms, late late at night

Chorus:
                                         (see note at end)
                          G   C         G Am Gsus4 Am Gsus4 (2x)
You know, I wish that I had Jessie's girl
I wish that I had Jessie's girl
F     G     C           Am         G
Where can I find her, a woman like that?

Verse 2:

I play along with the charade
There doesn't seem to be a reason to change
You know I feel so dirty when they start talking cute
I want to tell her that I love her but the point is probably moot

Pre-chorus (same as above):

'Cause she's watching him with those eyes
And she's loving him with that body, I just know it
And he's holding her in his arms, late late at night

Chorus:

You know I wish that I had Jessie's girl
I wish that I had Jessie's girl
Where can I find her, a woman like that?

Repeat chorus, last line twice (chords change slightly):
  
Like Jessie's girl
I wish that I had Jessie's girl
F     G     C           F    G    C   <-- (F instead of Am)
Where can I find her, a woman
F     G     C           Am         G
Where can I find her, a woman like that?

Bridge:

(Lead plays the chords shown below, as indicated;
everyone else stays on F through the bridge,
until the final G, at "supposed to be")

F  C  G  (2x)   (F,G = D shapes at 5 and 7, C at 7)

F  C  G  (4x)
And I'm looking in the mirror all the time
Wond'ring what she don't see in me
Yeah I've been funny I've been cool with the lines
Ain't that the way love's supposed to be?

E  A   E  F#m  Esus4  F#m  Esus4  (4x)
(Just like the chorus riff, but 1.5 steps lower)

         F     G     C          Am         G
Tell me, where can I find her a woman like that?

Solo:   Verse chords ( C G Am F G C ) 4x

Chorus (with one extra repeat):

You know I wish that I had Jessie's girl
I wish that I had Jessie's girl 
I want Jessie's girl
Where can I find her, a woman like that?  

Chorus again, as above but without last line:

Like Jessie's girl
I wish that I had Jessie's girl
I want, I want Jessie's girl

G  C  G  C  G  F  C

----------------------------------

Note:

For the chorus, you can try it with open chords, like this:

    G   C       G  Am Gsus4 Am Gsus4
e----------------------------------------------------
B-------1-1-1---0---1---1---1---1--------------------
G---0---0-0-0---0---2---0---2---0--------------------
D---0---2-2-2---0---2---0---2---0--------------------
A---2---3-3-3----------------------------------------
E---3------------------------------------------------

or barred like so:

    G   C       G  Am Gsus4 Am Gsus4
e----------------------------------------------------
B-------5-5-5----------------------------------------
G-------5-5-5-------5---5---5---5--------------------
D---5---5-5-5---5---7---5---7---5--------------------
A---5---3-3-3---5---7---5---7---5--------------------
E---3-----------3---5--------------------------------

(Since the recording is a full step higher, I suppose
it's the barre chords, but the open version sounds
better on my acoustic)

Enjoy,
Bob.
