Traffic In The Sky Chords by Johnson Jack, Track 3	• Traffic In The Sky Chords @ 911Tabs.Com


Traffic in the Sky
by Jack johnson
Tabbed by ZososoZ
ok, those who've spoken to jack in person tell me this isn't the way
he plays it, and thats cool.  he plays the same notes, and its just
a matter of different fingering.  play these TYPE of progression the whole
way through, even during the chorus parts.  also, on some of the verses he'll
slide from the D to the F#m and he'll strum it in the reggae style.  this
is just adding color to the song, so figure it out and you'll sound like
jack, aight?  thanks for the help everyone.
this is the progressioN

There's traffic in the sky and it doesn't seem to be getting much better
There's kids playing games on the pavement Drawing waves on the pavement Mmm hmm
 Shadows of the planes on the pavement Mmm hmm
It's enough to make me cry
But that don't seem like it will make it feel better
Maybe it's a dream and if I scream
It will burst at the seams
Whole place would fall into pieces

                A    G#
And then they'd say
G                         A
Well how could we have known
                        D
I'll tell them it's not so hard to
Bm
 Tell
   G
Nah nah nah
              A
You keep adding stones
              D
Soon the water will
               Bm
Be lost in the well
G                  A
Mmmm mmmm

Verse (same as above)
And puzzle pieces in the ground
No one ever seems to be digging
Instead they're looking up towards the heavens
With their eyes on the heavens
Mmm hmmm
The shadows on the way to the heavens
Mmm hmm
It's enough to make me cry
That don't seem like it will make it feel better
The answers could be found
We could learn from digging down
But no one ever seems to be digging
Instead they'll say
Well how could we have known
I'll tell them it's not so hard to tell
Nah nah nah
You keep adding stones
Soon the water will
Be lost in the well
Mmmm mmmm
And words of wisdom all around
But no one ever seems to listen
They're talking about the plans on the paper
Building up from the pavement
Mmm hmm
The shadows from the scrapers on the pavement
Mmm hmm
It's enough to make me sigh
But that don't seem like it will make it feel better
The words are all around
But the words are only sounds
And no one ever seems to listen
Instead they'll say
Well how could we have known
I'll tell them it's really not so hard to tell
Nah nah nah
You keep adding stones
Soon the water will
Be lost in the well
Lost in the well
Mmmm mmmm mmmm (end on D)

Verse:
(E - G# - C#m - A)
Well look at all those fancy clothes
but these could keep us warm just like those
and what about your soul? is it cold?
(F#m - B)
is it straight from the mold and ready to be sold?

(E - G# - C#m - A)
...and cars and phones and diamond rings, bling bling
those are only removable things
and what about your mind does it shine org
(F#m - B)
are there things that concern you more than your time

(E - B - C#m - A)
gone, going, gone everything gone give a damn
gone be the birds when they don't wanna sing
gone people all awkward with their things, gone.

Intro (E - C#m)

Verse2:
(E - G# - C#m - A)
look at you out to make a deal
you try to be appealing, but you lose your appeal
and what about those shoes you're in today
(F#m - B)
they'll do no good on the bridges you've burnt along the way, oh

(E - B - C#m - A) (yes, these are the chorus chords)
you were willing to sell anything gone with your hurt
leave your footprints we'll shame them with our words
gone people all careless and consumed, gone

gone going gone everything gone, give a damn
gone be the birds when they don't wanna sing
gone people all awkward with their things gone

Written by Jack Johnson

This is a mixture of a whole lot of average tabs. I think that this is better than them 
enjoy!!

The verse can be played using the riff or the chords...it sounds much better with two
each playing it differently...but try playing the riff three times and instead of hitting
last E, play Em chord.

She's just waiting for the summertime
when the weathers fine
and she could hitch a ride out of town
and so far away
from that low down, good for nothing
mistake making fool with excuses like

(strum for this part)

"baby that was a long time ago"
but thats just a euphemism
if you want the truth he was out of control
but a short time's a long time
when your mind just won't let it go

Intro:
well that's alright
and that's alright
2000 miles we stood
and that's alright

and that's alright
if that's alright
i'll see you in the morning
if that's alright

Verse:
 D                    F#m
what would you do if i wrote you a song
           Em7                  A7
would you give me some lovin when i get home
           D                F#m
would you be mad at me if i had a hard time
          Em7                    G
gettin a hold of you you know i try all the time

    D       F#m      Em7
and i think that
                A7                  D
you don't know anybody that could be
    F#m    Em7
so bad
       A7
but if you did
                   D
you'd be wonderin where
     F#m
i'm at
       Em7                A7                  D  F#m  Em7  A7
well i'll be home when tomorrow mornin comes

i'll be right there
the message is long
but this is your song

and i think that
you don't know anybody that could be
so bad
but if you did
you'd be wonderin where
i'm at
well i'll be home when tomorrow mornin...

and that's alright
'cause i'll be home when tomorrow mornin...
and that's allllright
'cause i'll be home when tomorrow mornin comes.

Intro chord: D
D
And by the way You know that hope will make you strange

Make you blink, make you blank, Make you sink
                G
It will make you afraid of change

Enough to blame the box with the view of the world
                  D
And the walls that fill the frame

I turn it up But then I turn it off Because I can't stand
                                 G
When they start to talk about The hurting and killing

Whose shoes are we filling The damage and ruin

And the things that we're doing
     D
Gotta We gotta stop We gotta turn it all off We gotta rewind
                            A               B         C
Start it up again Because we fell across the fall line
             B            G                                D
Ain't nothing sacred anymore Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah

 A7sus4, D, A7sus4,

D
Somebody saw him jump Yeah, but nobody saw him slip

I guess he lost a lot a hope And then he lost a grip
G
And now he's lying in the freeway In the middle of this mess

Guess we lost another one, just like the other one
D
Optimistic, hypocrite that didn't have the nerve to quit

The things that kept him wanted more 'Til he finally reached the core
  A               B         C             B            G
He fell across the fall line Ain't nothing sacred anymore
                              D
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah

	listen to the song to put it together

i would turn on the tv, but its so embarrassing
to see all the other people, i dont know what they mean
it was magic at first, when they spoke without sound
but now this world is gonna hurt, you better turn that thing down
turn it around

it wasnt me, says the boy with the gun
sure i pulled the trigger, but it needed to be done
because lifes been killing me ever since it begun
you cant blame me because im too young

you cant blame me, sure the killer was my son
but i didnt teach him to pull the trigger of the gun
its the killing on his tv screen
you cant blame me, its those images he seen

you cant blame me, says the media man
i wasnt the one who came up with the plan
i just point my camera at what the people want to see
its a two way mirror and you cant blame me

you cant blame me, says the singer of the song
or the maker of the movie which he based his life on
its only entertainment, as anyone can see
its smoke machines and makeup, you cant fool me

it was you, it was me, it was every man
weve all got the blood on our hands
we only receive what we demand
and if we want hell then hells what well have

i would turn on the tv, but its so embarrassing
to see all the other people, dont know what they mean
it was magic at first, but let everyone down
and now this world is gonna hurt, you better turn it around
turn it around

Jack Johnson- Rodeo Clowns

Chords- C#m	F#m	A	G#

C#m
Sweeping the floors, open up the doors
F#m
Turn on the lights, getting ready for tonight
A
Nobody's romancing because it's too early for dancing
G#
But here comes the music


C#m
Bright lights flashing to cover up your lack of soul
F#m
Many people, so many problems, so many reasons
A
To buy a round drink it down
G#
Just another night on the town

C#m
With the big man, moneyman, better than the other man
F#m
He got the plan with the million-dollar give a damn
A
When nobody understands he'll become a smaller man
G#m
The bright lights keep flashing, the women keep on dancing

	C#m	   G#m
With the clowns, they pick me up when I'm down
	A	    F#m
The rodeo clowns, they pick me up when I'm down

Then it repeats this sequence with only the lyrics changing

Enjoy!!!
