Jack Johnson tabs

Here are the corresponding riffs for each chord:


   A           E            E* (4th time)   D

Fairly straightforward.  The intro chords/riffs are used throughout the
song. Each period (in the chord-thing) below represents one measure
(one play-through of each riff above).  So, youíd play A four times,
E four times (the fourth time play the transition), D four times,
and then A twice and E twice.  Thatís it.  Probably the most important
thing to remember is to accent the third beat of each measure (which is
the added 6th of each chord).  Just listen along and youíll get the idea.

Iíve got a symbol in my driveway
Iíve got a hundred million dollar friends
Got you a brand new heaven, lets see
How destructive we can be

Got a brand new set of stencils
Iíve been connecting all the dots
Got my plans in a ziplock bag, lets see
How unproductive we can be

Got a lightbulb full of anger
And I can switch it on and off
Situations it can be so bright, I canít believe
How pathetic we can be

Got a perfect set of blueprints
Iím gonna build somebody else
Might cost a little more than money
But whatís man without his wealth

Iíve got a phosphorescent secret
But donít you tell nobody else
Next thing youíll know the whole world will be talking
About all the blues they got, they just ainít no use, they got
