Jack Johnson – Sitting, Waiting, Wishing

Intro:
* Am  * Am7   G   G7   F   * C  * C7


[Verse]
   * Am             * Am7
Well I was sitting, waiting, wishing
 G                  G7
You believed in superstitions
 F                F7     * C  * C7
Then maybe you'd see the signs
   * Am                 * Am7
But Lord knows that this world is cruel
        G                    G7
And I ain't the Lord no I'm just a fool
           F              F7             * C    * C7
Learning loving somebody don't make them love you


[Chorus]
        E  E7       E        E7       Am   Am7  Am   Am7
Must I always be waiting, waiting on you?
        E  E7       E        E7         Am   Am7   Am   Am7
Must I always be playing, playing your fool?


[Verse]
 * Am                * Am7
I sang your songs, I danced your dance
    G               G7
I gave your friends all a chance
      F                   F7                 * C     * C7
But putting up with them wasn't worth never having you
   * Am                     * Am7
Or maybe you've been through this before
          G                  G7
But it's my first time, so please ignore
       F                      F7               * C  * C7
These next few lines ‘cause they're directed at you


[Chorus]
         E  E7       E        E7       Am   Am7  Am   Am7
I can’t always be waiting, waiting on you?
         E  E7       E        E7         Am   Am7   Am   Am7
I can’t always be playing, playing your fool?


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

*Am  * Am7   G   G7
                Just sitting, waiting
F   F7  * C  * C7
              Just wait a minute
*Am  * Am7   G   G7
                Just sitting, waiting
F   F7  * C  * C7

   * Am         * Am7
Well if I was in your position,
     G              G7
I'd put down all my ammunition
      F                 F7        * C * C7
I'd wonder why it had taken me so long
       * Am           * Am7
But the Lord knows that I'm not you
     G                  G7
And if I was I wouldn't be so cruel
        F                   F7        * C * C7
Cause waitin' on love ain't so easy to do


[Chorus]
        E  E7       E        E7       Am   Am7  Am   Am7
Must I always be waiting, waiting on you?
        E  E7       E        E7         Am   Am7   Am   Am7
Must I always be playing, playing your fool?
             E  E7       E        E7        Am7   Am   Am7
No, I can’t always be waiting, waiting on you?
         E  E7       E        E7         Am  Am7   E   E7   Am
I can’t always be playing, playing your fool...    fool...

These are definitely the right chords - the chord follwed by the "7" version of it.
