Jack Johnson - Sitting, Waiting, Wishing

Album: In Between Dreams

[So It Goes Like This]

[Verse 1]
A                     A7
I was sitting, waiting, wishing
G                     G7
You believed in superstitions
F                      F7                   C         C7
Then maybe you would see the signs
A                     A7
But lord knows that this world is cruel
G                     G7
And I ain't the lord no I'm just a fool
F                      F7
Learning loving somebody
                               C              C7
Don't make them love you

[Chorus]
E                                                   Am
Must I always be waiting, waiting on you?
E                                                         Am
Must I always be playing, playing your fool?

[Verse 2]
I sang your songs I danced your dance
I gave your friends all a chance
But putting up with them
Wasn't worth never having you
Maybe you've been through this before
But it's my first time so please ignore
The next few lines because they're directed at you

[Chorus]
E                                                   Am
Must I always be waiting, waiting on you?
E                                                         Am
Must I always be playing, playing your fool?

[Bridge]
C                           E
I keep playing your part
                          F
But it's not my scene
                        G
Want this plot to twist
   F
I've had enough mystery
C                    E
You keep building it up
                                          F
But then you're shooting me down
                          G
But I'm already down
                        F
Just wait a minute

[Then same as verse]
Just sitting, waiting
Just wait a minute
Just sitting, waiting

[Verse 3]
Well if I was in your position
I'd put down all my ammunition
I'd wonder why it had taken me so long
But lord knows that I'm not you
And if I was I wouldn't be so cruel
Because waiting on love
Ain't so easy to do

[Chorus]
E                                                   Am
Must I always be waiting, waiting on you?
E                                                         Am
Must I always be playing, playing your fool?
