Traffic in the Sky by Jack johnson
Tabbed by ZososoZ

Ok, those who've spoken to jack in person tell me this isn't the way
he plays it, and thats cool.  he plays the same notes, and its just
a matter of different fingering.  play these TYPE of progression the whole
way through, even during the chorus parts.  also, on some of the verses he'll
slide from the D to the F#m and he'll strum it in the reggae style.  this
is just adding color to the song, so figure it out and you'll sound like
jack, aight?  thanks for the help everyone.

This is the progression

    D                  F#m              C            Em

[Verse 1]
There's traffic in the sky
And it doesn't seem to be getting much better
There's kids playing games on the pavement
Drawing waves on the pavement
Shadows of the planes on the pavement

[Pre-Chorus]
Its enough to make me cry
But that don't seem like it would make it feel better
Maybe its a dream and if I scream
It will burst at the seams
Whole place will fall to pieces
                A    G#
And then they'd say

[Chorus]
G                         A
Well how could we have known
                        D
I'll tell them it's not so hard to
Bm
 Tell
   G
Nah nah nah
              A
You keep adding stones
              D
Soon the water will
               Bm
Be lost in the well
G                  A
Mmmm mmmm

[Verse 2]
Puzzle pieces in the ground
No one ever seems to be digging
Instead they're looking up towards the heavens
With their eyes on the heavens
The shadows on the way to the heavens

[Pre-Chorus]
Its enough to make me cry
That don't seem like it would make it feel better
The answers could be found
We can learn from diggin' down
But no one ever seems to be diggin'
Instead they'll say

[Chorus]
G                         A
Well how could we have known
                        D
I'll tell them it's not so hard to
Bm
 Tell
   G
Nah nah nah
              A
You keep adding stones
              D
Soon the water will
               Bm
Be lost in the well
G                  A
Mmmm mmmm

[Verse 3]
Words of wisdom all around
But no one ever seems to listen
They're talking about their plans on the paper
Building up from the pavement
The shadows from the scrapers on the pavement

[Pre-Chorus]
Its enough to make me sigh
But that don't seem like it would make it feel better
The words are all around
But the words are only sounds
And no one ever seems to listen
Instead they'll say

[Chorus]
G                         A
Well how could we have known
                        D
I'll tell them it's not so hard to
Bm
 Tell
   G
Nah nah nah
              A
You keep adding stones
              D
Soon the water will
               Bm
Be lost in the well
G                  A
Mmmm mmmm

[End] D
