                            Cookie Jar by Jack Johnson
Tabbed by: Ryan "tab_monkey" 

Tuning: standard EADGBe

G|----2--x--6--6--6--6--6--4-----x--6--6--6--6--6------| this is repeated  
D|-4-----x--6--6--6--6--6--4-----x--6--6--6--6--6------| throughout the song

  and I will turn on the TV...  

        Jack uses this little riff at the end of each verse 

        listen to the song to put it together

[Verse 1]

i would turn on the tv, but its so embarrassing
to see all the other people, i dont know what they mean
it was magic at first, when they spoke without sound
but now this world is gonna hurt, you better turn that thing down
turn it around

[Verse 2]

it wasnt me, says the boy with the gun
sure i pulled the trigger, but it needed to be done
because lifes been killing me ever since it begun
you cant blame me because im too young

[Verse 3]

you cant blame me, sure the killer was my son
but i didnt teach him to pull the trigger of the gun
its the killing on his tv screen
you cant blame me, its those images he seen

[Verse 4]

you cant blame me, says the media man
i wasnt the one who came up with the plan
i just point my camera at what the people want to see
its a two way mirror and you cant blame me

[Verse 5]

you cant blame me, says the singer of the song
or the maker of the movie which he based his life on
its only entertainment, as anyone can see
its smoke machines and makeup, you cant fool me

[Verse 6]

it was you, it was me, it was every man
weve all got the blood on our hands
we only receive what we demand
and if we want hell then hells what well have

[Verse 5]

i would turn on the tv, but its so embarrassing
to see all the other people, dont know what they mean
it was magic at first, but let everyone down
and now this world is gonna hurt, you better turn it around
turn it around

Try playing the B chord on the seventh fret. You can hear the higher note on the E string when he plays on the album.

if you play the first chord as a barre chord:
it sounds better
