Tuning: eBGDAE (standard)

Alright, so this is a tab for Holes to Heaven by Jack Johnson on the Thicker
 Than Water OST. This song was played by Mr.Johnson with 1 acoustic guitar,
 in contrast to the Holes to Heaven that appears on On and On. This is 
certainly the best version to play with acoustic guitar. The strumming 
pattern in standard Jack Johnson style, and might be hard to pick up off the
 start, but just listen to the song, and you'll get it - try just practicing
 it with the strings muted.

Em1 is referring to this:

intro:
mute & strum pattern x2
G & strum pattern x4

Verse 1:
G
the air was more than humid
G
and the heat was more than hungry
G				                                          Em1
and the cars were square and spitting diesel fumes

(walk up b/t verses- pluck low E once and then change from Em to G)

G
the bulls were running wild
G
because they’re big and mean and sacred
G                                               Em1
and the children were playing cricket with no shoes

(walk up b/t verse & chorus- pluck low E once and then change from Em to Bm)

Chorus:
Bm
the next morning we woke up, man, to a seven hour drive
C
well there we were stuck in port blaire where boats break and children stare
G                                   D
and there were so many fewer questions
      Em               Bm                C	
when stars were still just the holes to heaven
Em2   Am
     mmhmm
G                                   D
and there were so many fewer questions
     Em                Bm            C	
when stars were still just the holes to heaven
Em2   Am
     mmhmm

Gx4

- same as previous verse -
Verse 2:
disembarking from the port
with no mistakes of any sort
moving soundly, engine running smooth

officials were quite friendly
once we drown them with our sweet talk
and we bribe them with our cigarettes and booze

Chorus 2:
Bm
the next morning we woke up man with the sunrise to the right, well,
C
moving back north to port blaire where boats break and children stare
G                                   D
and there were so many fewer questions
      Em               Bm                C	
when stars were still just the holes to heaven
Em2   Am
     mmhmm
G                                   D
and there were so many fewer questions
      Em               Bm            C	
when stars were still just the holes to heaven
Em2   Am
     mmhmm

ends on G
