Christina Perri ft. Jason Mraz
Acoustic Unplugged Version
Capo 2nd fret
Tabbed by Emmanuel Tse

I made this tab watching the unplugged version of the song, check it out
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ix8H1QXeU2M. Some were guesses by ear, some I tried to 
read off his actual chord shapes shown in the video. I definitely recommend at least a couple listens 
before giving this a go. Have fun! :)

I think Capo goes on first. Or I'm just thinking of piano. Cuz piano plays D and Bm(?) during the verse. And A, G, Bm, A for the chorus
