This isn't really the way he plays it at all... He has a capo on the 2nd fret, and if you don't own a capo, you can still play it w/out.

Also, check out the version 4 that was just posted recently. It sounds good, just a little lower.

Or just look here:

May 14 2008, 03:30 pm by emich2505 |
actually, i thought it sounded pretty good
+2   June 2 2008, 02:16 pm by Anlino |
Sounds alright. The love love loved part should end with a G.
July 3 2008, 09:42 am by Fischer93 |
It sounds allright, it's just an easy way to play it. But it's not entirly correct, if you compare it to how he plays it.

HASN'T ANYBODY NOTICED THAT THE LYRICS ARE WRONG?!?!?!?!
September 18 2008, 02:04 am by awwwsugar |
no, the lyrics are not wrong! there are different versions of this song. this one is all guitar with no drums.

The lyrics are not wrong thats why no1 has noticed... lol
And informal skin B might be right but you're only making the chords of this tab one step lower. And for those of you who feel C does not sound good use this one(i think it'll help coz no open stringz):
e-3
b-6
g-6
d-6
a-3
e-3/no note
good tab btw :D

"listen to the music of the moment people dance and sing; we're just one big family, and it's our god forsaken right to be loved loved loved loved loved"

B F#m G#m E

The lyrics are wrong. its: "listen to the music of the moment people dance and sing; we're just one big family, and it's our god forsaken right to be loved loved loved loved loved"

It doesnt sound right to me. I like the lower version better.
January 3 2010, 11:04 pm by rcmetalhead |
"matman370" those chords sound absolutely great!
April 9 2010, 08:41 pm by myusikah |
Whoa. I like these chords, they go with my vocal range, and...I was playing the chords to "The Show" by Lenka when I figured out they had the same chords, which would be right here. I like this version, as stated before, but you're missing like 2 verses.
+1   May 20 2010, 09:25 pm by ddean1991 |
good for my vocal range, although not played exactly how he does it or on the same key.
-1   July 24 2010, 05:50 pm by at-the-zoo |
lyrics are wrong. he says "listen to the music and the mormon people dancing" haha

If you put a capo on 5th these chords work every time for me
+1   March 6 2011, 07:16 pm by JayTylerSKL |
B-key (B - F# - G#m - E ) is correct
Or
Use capo on 4th fret and play
(G - D - Em - C)
It sounds better to me and easier to play as well
-1   June 11 2011, 12:27 am by littlesteve001 |
wrong lyrics. it " well you dawned on me"
June 11 2011, 07:21 am by lipphil |
It sounds not good if you dont play it with a capo on the 4th fret
June 20 2011, 04:25 pm by flightdogg |
I play it like samjesse does, with the capo on the fourth fret and G - D - Em - C. If Mraz sings it too high, then just move the capo down a fret or two.

The lyrics SHOULD be:
well you done done me in,
you bet I felt it,
I tried to be chill,
But you're so hot that I melted,
I fell right through the cracks,
and now I'm trying to get back,
before the cool done run out I'll be giving it my bestest,
and nothings gonna stop me but divine intervention,
I reckon it's again my turn,
to win some or learn some,
but I won't hesitate,
no more, no more,
it cannot wait,
I'm yours

Well, open up your mind and see like me,
open up your plans and damn you're free,
look into your heart and you'll find,
love, love, love, love,

listen to you music of the moment people dance and sing,
we're just one big family,
and it's our god forsaken right to be,
Loved, loved, loved, loved, loved.

So I won't hesitate,
no more, no more,
it cannot wait,
I'm sure there's no need to complicate,
our time is short,
this is our fate,
I'm your's,

scat sing...

don't you wanna come and,
skooch on over closer dear,
and I will nibble your ear,

scat sing...

I've been spending way too long
checking my tongue in the mirror
and bending over backwards just to try and see it clearer,
but my breath fogged up the glass,
so I drew a new face and laughed,
I guess what I'll be saying is there ain't no better reason,
to rid yourself of vanities and just go with the seasons,
it's what we aim to do,
Our name is our virtue,

but I won't hesitate no more,
no more, it cannot wait I'm yours,

so open up your mind and see like me,
open up your plans and damn you're free,
Look into your heart and you'll find,
the sky is yours,

so please don't, please don't, please don't,
there's no need to complicate,
cause our time is short,
this is this is this is our fate,
I'm yours.

It's not the way he plays it but I still really like it! :)
May 8 2013, 03:58 pm by catking99 |
Bestest, not best test. yeah, I know it's not a word.
June 19 2013, 09:34 pm by Essence60 |
you can put a capo on 4 and play G D Em and C and it sounds a lot better
July 16 2013, 08:42 am by catking99 |
LYRICS: "listen to the music of the moment, people dance and sing"
July 16 2013, 08:43 am by catking99 |
you're right.
July 26 2013, 01:55 pm by acousticazn |
That chord where the lyrics go "love love love" is actually a sharpened subdominant with a diminished seventh. This is a very common chord in jazz and ragtime music. In other words, in the key of B, this is an Fdim7. The Ab might be omitted but it still almost sounds the same. You can google how to finger this chord on the guitar but if needed you can play either this:

E|-x-|
B|-12-|
G|-10-|
D|-9-|
A|-8-|
E|-x-|

or this:

E|-x-|
B|-12-|
G|-10-|
D|-12-|
A|-11-|
E|-x-|

This is what we call a tritone. =D

t is wel c akkoord
November 19 2013, 11:42 am by van08 |
Try capo 1st fret and play A E F# D
THere is a version where he plays this way.
He goes on to (see below) at some point

E|-x-|
B|-12-|
G|-10-|
D|-9-|
A|-8-|
E|-x-|
November 19 2013, 11:43 am by van08 |
Fm# not F# sorry
November 25 2013, 08:26 pm by musicluver935 |
These actually seem more like they were written for the ukulele instead of the guitar. I played up through the second chorus and it sounded mostly good.
January 13 2014, 08:18 pm by Katie_xo124 |
Capo 4 or 6 (sounds good on both)

Down down up up down up each chord 2x

G D Em C

Whole song four chords
January 31 2014, 11:15 pm by emcookie |
Just started teaching myself guitar and have small hands, I cant physically play B. plus i don't have a capo. So this is amazing! Thank you

This is a great easy song if you like you can play A7 slowly at the end of the verses.

And also if you like, you can play G D Em C at the end of the chorus (saw on another version). Really great ! Thanks
March 20 2014, 02:50 pm by selimbr012 |
u can use G D Em C
April 11 2014, 05:46 am by 2509681008 |

September 12 2014, 06:59 am by epro9222 |
Also it sounds better with bar-chords. If you want to know that the bar-chords are email me at epro9222@gmail.com
