There are quite a few tabs for this already- but they either
require down-tuning or don't contain the full song.
I've done my best to tab the intro, it sounds pretty much right to
me but have a play, see what you think and comment/rate please!
The tuning is normal and all the chords shown are the same as the
guitar chords Van plays.
The intro is a bit tricky but the rest is just chords and pretty easy.

Main song:

G G C C
Hey where did we go,
G G D D
Days when the rains came
G G C C
Down in the hollow,
G G D D
Playin' a new game,
G G C C
Laughing and a running hey, hey
G G D D
Skipping and a jumping
G G C C
In the misty morning fog with
G G D D
Our hearts a thumpin'

C C D D
and you
G G Em Em
My brown eyed girl,
C C D D G G
You my brown eyed girl.


G G C C
Whatever happened
G G D D
To Tuesday and so slow
G G C C
Going down the old mine
G G D D
With a transistor radio
G G C C
Standing in the sunlight laughing,
G G D D
Hiding behind a rainbow's wall,
G G C C
Slipping and sliding
G G D D
All along the water fall

C C D D
with you
G G Em Em
My brown eyed girl,
C C D D G G
You my brown eyed girl.


D D
Do you remember when we used to sing,
G G C C G G D7 D7
Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da
G G C C G G D7 D7
Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da


G G C C G G D D


G G C C
So hard to find my way,
G G D D
Now that I'm all on my own.
G G C C
I saw you just the other day,
G G D D
My how you have grown,
G G C C
Cast my memory back there, Lord
G G D D
Sometime I'm overcome thinking 'bout
G G c
Making love in the green grass
G G D D
Behind the stadium

C C D D
with you
G G Em Em
My brown eyed girl,
C C D D G G
You my brown eyed girl


D D
Do you remember when we used to sing
G G C C G G D7 D7
Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da.
