Better together

2008 Jack Johnson inc

Bassist: Merlo Podlewski

Tuning : E A D G
Tempo  : 110 bpm

Intro 00:09       Chords : Capo on V
C               Em                       Am                    G
There is no combination of words I could put on the back of a postcard
F             C                  Dm          G
No song that I could sing, but I can try for your heart
C     Em                 Am              G
Our dreams, and they are made out of real things
         F         C
Like a, shoebox of photographs
     Dm          G
With sepia-toned loving


Verse1 00:26 (Bass starts)
G------------------|------------------|-----------------|
D--3~-3/2~-2/0~-0/-|------------------|-----------------|
A------------------|/3~-3/1~-1/0~-0---|-3/3~------------|
E------------------|---------------/3~|-----------------|
Love is the answer, at least for most of the questions in my heart,
like why are we here? And where do we go?
And how come it's so hard?

G------------------|------------------|-----------------|
D--3~-3/2~-2/0~-0/-|------------------|-----------------|
A------------------|/3~-3/1~-1/0~-0---|-3/3~------------|
E------------------|---------------/3~|-----------------|
It's not always easy and sometimes life can be deceiving
I'll tell you one thing, it's always better when we're together



Chorus 00:44
G--------3-------|---------5------|---------3------|--------5--------|
D----------------|----------------|----------------|-----------------|
A--1~-1----------|--3~-3----------|--1~-1----------|-3~-3------------|
E----------------|----------------|----------------|-----------------|
F                C
Mmm, it's always better when we're together
F                        C
Yeah, we'll look at the stars when we're together
F                 C
Well, it's always better when we're together
F                 G
Yeah, it's always better when we're together

Solo 01:01

Verse2 01:18
G------------------|------------------|-----------------|
D--3~-3/2~-2/0~-0/-|------------------|-----------------|
A------------------|/3~-3/1~-1/0~-0---|-3/3~------------|
E------------------|---------------/3~|-----------------|
And all of these moments
Just might find their way into my dreams tonight
But I know that they'll be gone
When the morning light sings

G------------------|------------------|-----------------|
D--3~-3/2~-2/0~-0/-|------------------|-----------------|
A------------------|/3~-3/1~-1/0~-0---|-3/3~------------|
E------------------|---------------/3~|-----------------|
And brings new things
For tomorrow night you see That they'll be gone too
Too many things I have to do

Verse3 01:35
G------------------|------------------|-----------------|
D--3~-3/2~-2/0~-0/-|------------------|-----------------|
A------------------|/3~-3/1~-1/0~-0---|-3/3~------------|
E------------------|---------------/3~|-----------------|
But if all of these dreams might find their way
Into my day to day scene
I'd be under the impression
I was somewhere in between

G------------------|------------------|-----------------|
D--3~-3/2~-2/0~-0/-|------------------|-----------------|
A------------------|/3~-3/1~-1/0~-0---|-3/3~------------|
E------------------|---------------/3~|-----------------|
With only two
Just me and you
Not so many things we got to do
Or places we got to be
We'll sit beneath the mango tree now

Chorus 01:53
G--------3-------|---------5------|---------3------|--------5--------|
D----------------|----------------|----------------|-----------------|
A--1~-1----------|--3~-3----------|--1~-1----------|-3~-3------------|
E----------------|----------------|----------------|-----------------|
Yeah, it's always better when we're together
Mmm, we're somewhere in between together Well,
it's always better when we're together Yeah,
it's always better when we're together

Solo 02:10
Mmm, mmm, mmm

E----------------|----------------|----------------|-----------------|
Dm           G
I believe in memories
         Dm                  G
They look so, so pretty when I sleep
    Dm            G
Hey now, and when I wake up,
         Dm                 G
You look so pretty sleeping next to me

A--1~-1----------|--3~-3----------|--1~-1----------|-3~-3------------| X2
E----------------|----------------|----------------|-----------------|
           F          G
But there is not enough time,
         F            G
There is no, no song I could sing
          Dm              G
And there is no combination of words I could say
          F              G
But I will still tell you one thing... we're better together.
