As I Was Saying by Jack Johnson off his new album “From Here to Now to You”

Standard tuning. NOTE: Barre chords sound the BEST here. You can still use the regular 
chords but barre chords create that Jack Johnson sound we all love.

Capo 1st fret

INTRO
F#m

VERSE
A              Em
As I was saying
                          D
Just before you left the room
       A
Before I assumed
      G         D          A
That you might not come around

A              Em
As I was saying
                   D
Just after I took my foot from
    A                G
My mouth and put it back
D        A
On the ground

CHORUS
D                     E
I don't want to disappoint you
A                     D
I don't want to disappear
      Bm      E      A
From here or now or you

VERSE
A                   Em
This is worth saving
                          D
Because the sum of us is more than us
       A
If you add us up


          G       D        A
Then subtract my lack of sleep

A                  Em
My mind feels crazy
                             D
When all these thoughts come rushing in
              A
Should I be trusting them
   G     D        A
Or only let them be?

CHORUS
D                     E
I don't want to disappoint you
A                     D
I don't want to disappear
      Bm      E      A
From here or now or you

BRIDGE
Bm                      E
Is it just a matter of time?
Bm                        C#
Or does it even matter at all?
D                      A           Bm
Because even if this story should fall
           D         A
From the sky to the sea
A           Bm
If I should fall
           D              F#m
Would you fall down with me?
               E
Would you fall?

VERSE
A                 Em
Found my foundation
                     D
It was underneath me all along
A
On this path I'm on,
       G     D     A
Now I never walk alone

A                Em
I've been erasing
                    D
Rewrote the second half like this
          A
So my protagonist
       G        D        A
Might find his way back home

CHORUS
D                     E
I don't want to disappoint you
A                     D
I don't want to disappear
      Bm      E      A
From here or now or you
             Bm      E       A
No not from here or now or you

Good tab! Simple enough. Wonderful lyrics again by JJ, of course.

Though I think it's supposed to be:

"Found my foundation, it was underneath me all ALONG"

Haha yeah I copied and pasted the lyrics from another site, so I probably should have checked first. Good catch!
