1,000 Things (live acoustic version) 
Jason Mraz
Tabbed by:  Josh Larrimore (ski_merlin@yahoo.com)
**Special thanks to Jon Blank for trying to tab this
  song first...I just "corrected" (I hope) his 
  version.


TUNING: Standard EADGBe (no capo)

This is my very first tab attempt...I didn't think 
anyone else got it quite right, so this is what 
sounds right to me.  I've been playing for about a 
year now, but I have a very good ear, and I hope this 
is right.  Please let me know if anything sounds
off...remember that this is off the live acoustic
version.

CHORDS:

the scat/intro chords, then pauses, waits for 
the bongos and starts with the scat/intro

VERSE 1
Cadd9
And I'm, I'm over-joyed
G
And I'm, I'm over-loved
Cadd9                    G
And I'm feeling lucky, like a little boy
Cadd9
Who's hiding under cover
G
And looking to discover

Cadd9                  G
Every way to play the part inside this darkened cave
A5
The meaning of life, well it starts at the nightlight
Cadd9                      D
Close your eyes and I hope you see mine

CHORUS

VERSE 2
Cadd9
And I've, well I've seen a thousand things in one place
D/B                              A5
But I stopped my counting when I saw your face
                       Cadd9                             D
Erasing memory, well I feel as though I've never seen a face before
                 Cadd9
Until I saw your eyes
                                           D/B
And they're smiling back at me through my tears
                                    A5
I've been counting all these years, oh 
                                  Cadd9                              D
Suddenly the thousand things I've seen were nothing more than dreams of

           G   Cadd9
Of you and me
        G   Cadd9
You and me
    G            Cadd9
Quietly at a standstill now
       G           Cadd9 
Fortunately you will, well you'll kiss me, I will

I will kiss you back

BRIDGE
                   Cadd9         G
Oh the fact of the matter is - ooo-lay
                          
                   Cadd9             G
And I don't know what the latter is, oh no way
                           Cadd9                     
See, I've always wanted to kiss you
                           G 
But I, I always wanted to run from you
                              Cadd9
Because I've always wanted to miss you
                             G
And I, I always wanted to comfort you
  A5                                   Cadd9
OOoooo - Well I love my comfort foods, you said
                       D
While you always say, How do you do?

G

hey man
Great song by a great artist!
Only a couple of things that i think they're not quit right.
The A5, it may sound better with Am7 (tried with the live version with percussions only),
& the G7 that you tabbed is correct in the posture but wrong in the naming, because i checked with GuitarPro and it says that it's called G7M.

Thanks a lot for sharing!
