            G                            Bb,F
when i stole my first rhyme from the m.i.c.
        G                C
at a west end avenue at 63
     F                           Bb,F        
the beginning of a leap year, february,
  G                                C 
’96 when a guitar picked up in the mix
       F                         Bb,F
i committed to the licks like a nickel back of tricks
      G 
well look at me now
 C

       Bb,F                          G
that i bet my whole checking account
                C                            F
because it all amounts to nothing up in the end

and i been payin close attention to the willie nelson style
      G                         C
like a a band of gypsies on the highway while
         F                      Bb,F

   G                    C                        F

VERSE 3: (DO G-C-F-Bb,F)
see i'm a down home brother, redneck undercover
with my guitar here i'm ready to play
and i'm a sucker for philly
got a natural ability to give the freestyle
look at my flexibility
dangerous on the mic
my ghetto hat's cocked right
all the ladies say, "yo, that kid is crazy"
we got the backstage betties taking more than they can get
they say, "what's up with m-r-a-z?"

BRIDGE: (SAME AS VERSE)
hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
something's different in my world today
well they changed my traffic sign to a brighter yellow
hey, hey, something's different in my world today
well they changed my traffic sign to a brighter yellow
i'm just a curbside prophet love
a curbside brother love
a curbside brother love
a curbside oh come on
i'm just a curbside prophet and i'm waiting for my rocket
i'm waiting for my rocket to come

Rock On!

It's the simplified version and labeled "Acoustic" to signify that.

It sounds good. Just doesn't have the flair that Mraz puts in. Then again, the song is really in the performance.
