Tabbed by Andrew Skinner

Capo first fret

Verse
G            Cadd9     G
I've been in search of stones
G
Making up the pavement
        Cadd9    G
of less traveled roads
   G/F#    Em
mining for treasure deep in my bones
Em           D    Dsus2 D  Dsus2    
That I never found


Verse
G                Cadd9 G
Went looking for reve..rence
G
Tried to find it in a bottle
       Cadd9 G
& came back  again
G    G/F# Em
High on a hashpipe of good intent
Em                     D   Dsus2 D Dsus2
But it only brought me down


Chorus
Cadd9 D                   G    G/F# Em
Tried institutions of the mind and  soul
Cadd9   D
It only taught me what I
G      G/F# Em
Should not  know
Cadd9  D
Oh the answer well
G         G/F# Em    
who would have guessed
Em       C            D
Could be something as simple as
G    C            D         G   Cadd9 G
this,something as simple as this


Verse
Traveled to each oceans end
Saw all 7 wonders,
trying to make some sense
Memorized the mantra confucius said
But it only let me down


Chorus
Tried absolution of the mind and soul
It only led me where I should not go
Oh and the answer well
how could I miss
Something as simple as this?
Something as simple as this?


Bridge
Cadd9 D    G       Cadd9 D  G
I     been falling crashing breaking
Cadd9 D       G
And   all the while you were
Cadd9 D    G
stood here waiting
       Em
For me girl


Chorus
Tried liberation of my own free will
But it left me looking to get higher still
Oh and the answer well
who could have guessed
could be something as simple as this?
God knows how I could have missed
Something as simple as this

Almost right.
The G/F# chord sounds out of place throughout the whoile song.

G/F#
e]-2-- Should simply be: e]-3- (Not sure what chord this is)
b]-0-- b]-3-
g]-0-- g]-0-
d]-0-- d]-0-
a]-2-- a]-0-
e]-2-- e]-2-

Also, at the end of the chorus where you have ...

Em C D
Could be something as simple as
(G) C D G Cadd9 G
this,something as simple as this

The G I've put in brackets should be a Em chord.

Could be something as simple as this
Em Am
God knows how I could have missed

Something as simple as this
