There are quite a few tabs for this classic song but I'm pretty sure most of them,
which are tabbed in the key of D, are wrong. If you use standard tuning and place a
capo on the third fret you can play the song keyed in F which I think sounds a lot
better.

Chords used:
       F   Fsus4 Csus4
e|-----5-----6-----3-----
B|-----6-----6-----6-----
G|-----5-----5-----5-----
D|-----3-----3-----5-----
A|-----------------3-----
E|-----------------------

I'm going to tab the song for guitar 1 as though the capoed third fret was the
guitar's open tuning. Guitar 2 is tabbed in standard tuning.

Intro:
Guitar 1: Acoustic

 g|--2--3----3-2--0--|--2--3----3-2--0--|
 D|--3--3----3-3--3--|--3--3----3-3--3--|
A#|--2--2----2-2--2--|--2--2----2-2--2--|
 F|--0--0----0-0--2--|--0--0----0-0--2--|
 C|---------------0--|---------------0--|
 G|------------------|------------------|

Verse 1:
Guitar 1 with a down strum on each chord only.

         F   Fsus4 Fsus4 F        Csus4        |---------Note---------
She's a good girl  lo----ves her mama,         | Commas, full-stops
       F Fsus4    Fsus4 F    Csus4             |and exclamation marks
Loves Jesus and Amer -- ica too.               |in the lyrics denote
         F   Fsus4 Fsus4 F       Csus4         |the separation between 
She's a good girl  cra  zy 'bout Elvis,        |two bars of the music.
           F  Fsus4        Fsus4 F      Csus4  |
She loves horses  and her boy - friend too.    |

Verse 2:
Guitar 1 continues with single down strum, drums and bass come in.

Bass line:

A|o----1----1-0--3-o|-----This same riff is repeated throughout------|
E|o-1--------------o|-----most of the song and doesn't change.-------|

Lyrics:

An' it's a long day livin' in Reseda,
There's a freeway runnin' through the yard,
An' I'm a bad boy 'cause I don't even miss her,
I'm a bad boy for breakin' her heart.

Chorus:
Guitar 1 strums the chords in a different pattern but with exactly the same timing
and progression.

          F  Fsus4    Fsus4 F  Csus4
Now I'm free!
          F  Fsus4    Fsus4 F  Csus4
I'm free fallin'!
          F  Fsus4    Fsus4 F  Csus4
Yeah I'm free!
          F  Fsus4    Fsus4 F  Csus4
I'm free fallin'!

Verse 3:

And all the vampires walking through the valley,
Move west down Ventura Boulevard,
And all the bad boys are standing in the shadows,
And the good girls are at home with broken hearts.

Chorus:
          F  Fsus4    Fsus4 F  Csus4
Now I'm free!
          F  Fsus4    Fsus4 F  Csus4
I'm free fallin'!
          F  Fsus4    Fsus4 F  Csus4
Yeah I'm free!
          F  Fsus4    Fsus4 F  Csus4
I'm free fallin'!
