1,000 Things (live acoustic version) 
Jason Mraz
Tabbed by:  Josh Larrimore (ski_merlin@yahoo.com)
**Special thanks to Jon Blank for trying to tab this
  song first...I just "corrected" (I hope) his 
  version.


TUNING: Standard EADGBe (no capo)

This is my very first tab attempt...I didn't think 
anyone else got it quite right, so this is what 
sounds right to me.  I've been playing for about a 
year now, but I have a very good ear, and I hope this 
is right.  Please let me know if anything sounds
off...remember that this is off the live acoustic
version.

CHORDS:
    C    G/E    C6  Fadd9   G     D5    C7

Jason starts by picking around a little with
the scat/intro chords, then pauses, waits for 
the bongos and starts with the scat/intro

VERSE 1
Fadd9
And I'm, I'm over-joyed
C
And I'm, I'm over-loved
Fadd9                    C
And I'm feeling lucky, like a little boy
Fadd9
Who's hiding under cover
C
And looking to discover

Fadd9                  C
Every way to play the part inside this darkened cave
D5
The meaning of life, well it starts at the nightlight
Fadd9                      G
Close your eyes and I hope you see mine

CHORUS

C6
rrraa-ba-daddah-badah-rrra-ba-daddah
Fadd9                G

VERSE 2
Fadd9
And I've, well I've seen a thousand things in one place
G/E                              D5
But I stopped my counting when I saw your face
                       Fadd9                             G
Erasing memory, well I feel as though I've never seen a face before
                 Fadd9
Until I saw your eyes
                                           G/E
And they're smiling back at me through my tears
                                    D5
I've been counting all these years, oh 
                                  Fadd9                              G
Suddenly the thousand things I've seen were nothing more than dreams of

           C   Fadd9
Of you and me
        C   Fadd9
You and me
    C            Fadd9
Quietly at a standstill now
       C           Fadd9 
Fortunately you will, well you'll kiss me, I will

I will kiss you back

BRIDGE
                   Fadd9         C
Oh the fact of the matter is - ooo-lay
                          
                   Fadd9             C
And I don't know what the latter is, oh no way
                           Fadd9                     
See, I've always wanted to kiss you
                           C 
But I, I always wanted to run from you
                              Fadd9
Because I've always wanted to miss you
                             C
And I, I always wanted to comfort you
  D5                                   Fadd9
OOoooo - Well I love my comfort foods, you said
                       G
While you always say, How do you do?
