Intro
-----

B

A, E, A, E


1st Verse
---------
            A
In times like these
               E  
In times like those
                A  
What will be will be
            E 
And so it goes

And it always goes 
F#m            B
on and on and on and on and on
F#m            B                  A
on and on and on and on and on it goes
        E
hmm hmm hmm
        A
hmm hmm hmm
        E
hmm hmm hmm


2nd Verse
---------
                          F#m              
And there has always been laughing, crying, birth, and dying
 B
Boys and girls with hearts that take and give and break
     F#m                                     B
And heal and grow and recreate and raise and nurture
                                     A
But then hurt from time to time like these
               E
And times like those
                      A
And what will be will be
          E
And so it goes


3rd Verse
---------
                         F#m
And there will always be stop and go and fast and slow
         B
Action, Reaction, sticks and stones and broken bones
F#m
Those for peace and those for war
              B
And god bless these ones, not those ones
                          A
But these ones made times like these
              E
And times like those
                  A
What will be will be
       E
And so it goes

And it always goes 
F#m            B
on and on and on and on and on
F#m            B                  A
on and on and on and on and on it goes
        E
hmm hmm hmm
        A
hmm hmm hmm
        E
hmm hmm hmm


Outro
-----
           F#m        Riff 01      
But somehow I know it won't be the same
           F#m        Riff 01       
Somehow I know it'll never be the same.



Another very smooth song by Jack Johnson. Just brilliant.

Thanks for the tab! There is, however, an easier way to play the riff:

D --------2--4
A --0--s4-----
