Angus And Julia Stone - Just a Boy
Tabbed By Michael Higgins

Intro: Am  Em  F  C
       Am  Em  F  F

Verse: Am       Em
       I bit my tongue in the
       F            C
       arc of conversation
       Am          Em
       I dont know why
       F           C
       I dont know why

       Am        Em
       I met you once and i've
       F               C
       fallen for your notions
       Am          Em
       I dont know why
       F           C
       I dont know why

       Am  Em   F   F

       Am     Em
       Do you believe that there's
       F               C
       Treasures in the ocean
       Am    Em             F    C
       Did I say i'm just a boy...

       Am            Em
       One kiss from you and i'm
       F                C
       drunk up on your potion
       Am           Em
       That big old smile is all you
       F     C
       wore...

Chorus:
       G        Am              F    C
       Girl you make me want to feel ...
       G           Am         F    C
       Things i've never felt before ...
       G        Am              F    C
       Girl you make me want to feel ...
       G     Am               F     C
       Did I say I was just a boy ...
       G     Am               F
       Did I say I was just a boy
               C
       You can hold me to that ...

Harmonica solo

The Guitar to this part is

Am  Em  F  C
Am  Em  F  C
Am  Em  F  C
Am  Em  F  F

I have transcribed the harmonica on a guitar as

e|--8--10--8--12--10--8—-8--10--8--|--8-—10--8--12--13-—12--13//15--13--12--|

B|-----------------------------|--------------------------|
G|-----------------------------|--------------------------|
D|-----------------------------|--------------------------|
A|-----------------------------|--------------------------|
E|-----------------------------|--------------------------|


Verse: Same as first verses, but with these lyrics:

       No lonely hands grab my
       suitcase full of nothing
       I don't know why
       I don't know why

       You took me in gave me
       something to believe in
       That big old smile is all you
       wore ...

Chorus
       Girl you make me want to feel
       Things I never felt before
       Girl you make me want to feel
       Did I say I'm just a boy
       Did I say I'm just a boy
       You can hold me to that...

Harmonica Solo: Am  Em   F  C
                Am  Em   F  C
                Am  Em   F  C
                Am  Em   F  F

Chorus
       Girl you make me want to feel
       Things I never felt before
       Girl you make me want to feel
       Did I say I'm just a boy
       Did I say I'm just a boy...

I have also tabbed the overdubs that the piano plays during the verse and chorus
