  / Obadiah Parker          /  I think this song is a song about how hard it
 / Hey Ya (Outkast cover)  /  can be in a relationship and how hard it can be
/_________________________/  to stick together sometimes - beautiful lyrics!

 Also check my guitar pro version of this tab:

Key: E major
Capo on 4th fret
First is the actual name of the chord,
and below in brackets is the name of the chord without capo:

      E    Aadd9   Bsus4   C#m7
     (C)  (Fadd9) (Gsus4) (Am7)

Main Progression:
This is the opening round, which is very typical for the rest of the song.
The other guitar improvises small random things here and there.

  E                     Aadd9              Aadd9

 2/4          4/4
  Bsus4        C#m7                  C#m7


  My baby don't mess around
  Because she loves me so
  And this I know for sure
  But does she really wanna
  But can't stand to see me walk out the door
  I can't stand to fight the feeling
  'Cause the thought alone is killing me right now
  Thank god for mom and dad for sticking two together
  'Cause we don't know how

  Hey ya, hey ya
  Hey ya, hey ya

  You think you've got it
  Oh, you think you've got it
  But God just don't get it till' there's nothing at all
  We get together
  Oh, we get together
  But separates always better when there's feelings involved
  If what they say that "nothing is forever"
  Then what makes
  What makes love the exception?
  So why are, why are, why are, why are
  Why are we so in denial when we know we're not happy here?

  Hey ya, hey ya
  Hey ya, hey ya

  Alright now fellas
  Yeah oh, cooler than being cool?
  I can't hear you now, now, now
  I say what's cooler than being cool?
  What now ladies
  Yeah, we're gonna bring it down in just a few seconds here
  Now don't make me break this down for nothing
  I wanna see you all on your all's baddest behavior
  Lend me some sugar, I am your neighbor
  Shake it
  Shake it like a Polaroid Picture
  Oh now, shake it
  Shake it up

  Hey ya, hey ya
  Hey ya, hey ya
