What You Thought You Need – Jack Johnson

C     x32010
Cadd9 x30010
Dm*   x57765
Em*   x79987

Listen to the song and you notice that he does a quick change between C and Cadd9 then 
to C.  I added it below in a few places - stodman


[Verse 1]

C                               Cadd9  C
I can't give you everything you want
C                                         Dm*
But I could give you what you thought you need.
Dm*                                                                     C
A map to keep beneath your seat, you'll read to me in time I'll get you there
Dm*                                                                 C
I fold it up so we don't find our way back soon, nobody knows we're here.

C                               Cadd9  C
We can park the van and walk to town
C                                          Dm*
Find cheapest bottle of wine that we could find
                                                                  C
And talk about the road behind how getting lost is not a waste of time.
Dm*
The water moor will take us home in the moment we will sing as the forest sleeps.


[Chorus]

          Em*         Dm*                   C
Well it's all for the sake of arriving with you
          Em*            Dm*                   C
Well it's all .. for the sake of arriving with you


[Verse 2]

     C                            Cadd9  C
Well I will make the table into a bed
C                                      Dm*
The candle is burning down its time to rest.
Dm*                                                                      C
I can't take back things already gone, but I could give you promises for keeps.
Dm*                                                                         C
And I would only take them back if they become your own and you give 'em to me .


[Chorus]

         Em*         Dm*                   C
And it's all for the sake of arriving with you.
          Em*         Dm*                   C
Well it's all for the sake of arriving with you.


[Bridge]

Dm*
We could make this into anything
Dm*                                        C
We could make this into more than words we speak.
Dm*
This could make us into anything
Dm*                                         C
It could make us grow and become what we'll be.


[Outro]

C
Mmmmmm ..  How and we will know
                  Dm*                        C
It's just like it feels... It’s just like it feels
C
Mmmmmm ...  How can we really know
                  Dm*                        C
It's just like it feels... It’s just like it feels
                  Dm*                  C
It's just like it feels... How does it feel
                  Dm*                        C
It's just like it feels... It’s just like it feels
            Dm*                        C
How does it feel... It’s just like it feels
            Dm*
How does it feel...

Yo dude! some of the lyrics are wrong...

you'll "read" to me (not: you've been)

"no", getting lost (not:how)

promises for "keys" (not:keeps)

Otherwise, that's a pretty good job.

Cheers.

Lol you guys are both wrong... pierrot83, I assume your from the UK so some American slang or phrases may seem odd to you; like...[promises for "keys" (not:keeps)] It is actually "keep" "promises for keeps" However! pierrot83 you are correct on this one [you'll "read" to me (not: you've been)] It is, "A map to keep beneath your seat, you'll read to me in time I'll get you there" (she's going to navigate for Jack Johnson) and finally Pierrot83 ["no", getting lost (not:how)Stodman is correct, the lyric is, "And talk about the road behind how getting lost is not a waste of time" (They are discussing their journey and both verbally acknowledging that "getting lost" is NOT a waste of time; most likely because "getting lost" leads them to new undiscovered destinations. But this was an awesome tab
