                             Don't Fall Asleep - SonReal ft. John Wilson
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: blakeg14
Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)

SonReal's Webiste: http://www.reverbnation.com/sonreal
song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=excJpMmPPN4

This is very basic. Just to get you playing the song. 
I haven't tabbed the fills in the beginning, still working on those myself.

Chords:
C major, F major, and G major. Probly the 3 most commonly used chords.
The progression is I-IV-V, or Cmaj, Fmaj, Gmaj.

John Wilson definitely holds the C (1st fret of the B string) and hammer-ons the 
top half of chords; 
The G, however, is a bit different.

It's an alternate fingering for the chord. It's easier to play with the C's and F's, 
because it's in the same shape. 
Ring finger on G (3rd fret, low E, 6th string), 
middle finger on B (2nd fret, A string, 5th string), 
and pinky on the G (3rd fret, high E, 1st string).


Song pattern:
Intro C, F, C, G (fade in) 2x
Verse 1 C, F 8x
Chorus C, F, C, G 2x (G stops short 2nd time)
verse 2 C, F 8x
Chorus C, F, C, G 4x (G stops short)
chorus/outro C, F, C, G (fade out) 3x

Very simple. Just listen for cut-offs.


Lyrics
(his rapping and accent makes some of the lyrics hard to figure out):

~Intro~
C F C G
C F C G

~Verse~

C
She was so ugly just affected by the world
F
walked the same path everyday of being this girl
C
that she knew she wasn't but wasn't buzzin enough
   F
cus everybody's sittin' there tellin' her what is up like
C                                            F
do this wear that 'til she put a dumb crooked smile on her face
                            C
subconsciously feel is wrong but can't confront herself so she keep walkin 
alone,
F
to the same beat of whoever playin' the drums
   C
and shorty gettin' older started sleepin' 'round with dudes
F                                          C
so hot now she been barely even eatin' food thinkin' she know everything
                       F
but she aint got a clue 'cus she jus' found out she's pregnant 

and she ain't even know who
C
she looked in the mirror but can't look in her eyes
F                                                 C
so frustrated to "make a plunge?" then she fallin' down on the bed

F
