Hey guys! So this pretty much my first tab! Got the new Jack Johnson album yesterday and 
was blown away! Anyways, this is a combination of some-what completed tabs of this song 
and covers that I've seen/heard so here you go:

Notes: Standard tuning, No capo and the Chords kinda switch pretty fast especially with 
the Eb (Which is the one barred version on the 6th fret)
-Also, any helpful corrections would be great. Its not 100% correct, but at least its 
close. :P

Into:
Bb Eb F
Bb Cm Eb F

Bb Cm F


-Verse 1-
Bb                                    Cm    F
In the morning when the world came awake
Bb                               Cm   F
Before you knew me I knew your name
Bb                                     Cm   F
It was painted across the day as it breaks
Bb                              Cm  F
An impression in your window frame

-Chorus-
         Cm
When you saw me out your window
F
Singing from the garden
Cm
Only the beginning
    F
I'm only getting started
Cm
I don't mind the digging
F
Baby, I'll work harder
Cm
I've been washing dishes
 F
Singing from the bottom

-Verse 2-
Bb                                   Cm   F
But one day I'll be running this place
Bb                             Cm   F
And one day I could take you away
Bb                                   Cm   F
But I want you to wonder what's my name
Bb                                    Cm   F
Because I need you to want me the same

-Chorus-
         Cm
When you saw me washing dishes
  F
Singing from the bottom
Cm
Only the beginning
  F
I'm only getting started
Cm
I don't mind the digging
 F
Baby, I'll work harder
Cm
I've been in the ashes
 F
Singing from the garden

-Verse 3-
Bb                                  Cm   F
Where everything reaches for the sun
Bb                              Cm   F
Still unsure of what we'll become
Bb                              Cm   F
But I need you to reach out to me
Bb                            Cm   F (continue playing F)
See in me more than I could see

-Chorus-

Because I'm afraid that
Cm                 Eb
One day is only two words we say
Bb                       F
I don't want to let them get in the way
  Cm                  Eb                        Bb
Of all the plans that we should be making right now
F
Right now
Cm           Eb
Who took the time and where did they take it
Bb
I want to take it back
       F
I don't want them to break it
Cm                   Eb                  Bb
All these plans that we should be making right now
 F
Right now


Instrumental/Finger picking: Bb Eb Bb Cm F

-Verse 4-
        Bb                              Cm  F
You see one day I'll be running this place
Bb                              Cm  F
And one day I could take you away
Bb                                    Cm  F
But I want you to wonder what's my name
Bb                                  Cm  F
Because I need you to want me the same

-Chorus-
          Cm
When you saw me out your window
F                Eb
Singing from the bottom
Cm
Only the beginning
F
I'm only getting started
Cm
I don't mind the digging
 F              Eb
Baby, I'll work harder
Cm
I've been washing dishes
F                Eb
Singing from the bottom
Cm                  Eb
One day is only two words we say
Bb                       F
I don't want to let them get in the way
   Cm                   Eb                      Bb
Of all the plans that we should be making right now
     F    Eb
Right now
Cm                    Eb
Who took the time and where did they take it
  Bb
I want to take it back
  F
I don't want them to break it
Cm                   Eb                        Bb
All these plans that we should be making right now
