Jack Johnson-I Got You (Single)

Tuning: E-A-D-G-B-E

Chords:  E     7/7/9/9/9/7
         B     7/9/9/8/7/7
         F#    2/4/4/3/2/2/
         B/D#  X/6/9/8/7/6


[Intro]

E    -     B
E    -     B
E    -     B
F#- B/D# - F#

That's the easy way to play it.
If you play the song alone, you can pick the cords like that and
whistle the melody,
because than it sounds nicer:

    E                      B           E                   B

e|--7-------------------|-----------|--7----------------|------------------|
B|---------9------------|--7--------|--------9----------|--7---------------|
G|----9------9----8-----|----8------|----9-----9----8---|----9--8----------|
D|-----9------9-----9---|-----9-----|-----9-----9-----9-|------------------|
A|--7-----(7)----(7)----|------9----|--7----(7)----(7)--|------------------|
E|----------------------|--7--------|-------------------|--7----7----------|

    E                      B                  F#     B/D#        F#
e|--7-------------------|----------------|--2------------------|--2--------|
B|---------9------------|--7------7-\-4--|--2---------7--------|---2-------|
G|----9------9----8-----|----8-----------|--3----------8-------|-----------|
D|-----9------9-----9---|-----9----------|--4------------------|-----------|
A|--7-----(7)----(7)----|------9---------|--4--4--4/6-----6\4--|-----------|
E|----------------------|--7-------------|--2------------------|-----------|


Or the version Jack plays (including some bass tones I didn't fix but they belong to the 
chords so it's no problem to play them):

    E         B          E            B                  E         B
e|--7------|----------|--7----------|-----------------|--7------|----------|
B|-----9---|--7~~~~~~~|----9----7---|-----------------|-----9---|--7~~~~~~~|
G|-------8-|----------|------8----9-|--8~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|-------8-|----------|
D|---------|----------|-------------|-----------------|---------|----------|
A|--7~~~~~~|----------|--7~~~~~~7~~~|-----------------|--7~~~~~~|----------|
E|---------|--7~~~~~~~|-------------|--7~~~~~~~~~~----|---------|--7~~~~~~~|

         F#          B/D#         F#
e|-------2----|----------------|--2-----------|
B|--7/4--2----|--------7-------|---2----------|
G|-------3----|---------8------|--------------|
D|-------4----|----------------|--------------|
A|-------4--4-|----4/6-----6\4-|--------------|
E|-------2----|----------------|--------------|


[Verse 1]

          E                          B
Back when all my little goals seemed so important

E                          B
Every pot of gold fill and full of distortion

E                           B
Heaven was a place still in space not in motion

    F#
But soon

[Refrain]

      E
I got you

     B
I got everything

         E
I've got you

        B
I don't need nothing

          E
More than you

      B
I got everything

         F#
I've got you

[Verse 2]

        E
We went walking through the hills

          B
Tryin' to pretend that we both know

E
Maybe if we save up

       B
We can build a little home

    E
But then the hell storm came and yelled,

 B                                  F#
"You need to let go, you've got no control. No."

[Verse 3]
(Same chords with some variations, but play it like you want to)

     E                  B
This weight's too much alone

     E            B
Some days I can't hold it at all

    E              B
You take it on for me

       E
When tomorrow's too much

     F#
I'll carry it all

       Fill-In 2 x2
I've got you
