JASON MRAZ
WHO NEEDS SHELTER
WAITING FOR MY ROCKET TO COME

Thanks to Maitinin for teaching me the basics of the song. I've adjusted the 
chords so that they're in the right key with the capo, and fixed the intro a bit 
to sound closer to what Jason plays.

The bracketed part of the intro riff can be played as either version A or version 
B. In the intro, it sounds more like A with the other instruments playing 
alongside, but during the verses, it switches more to B. This isn't 100%, but 
should be close enough to sound good, and you can play around with it a bit to 
find what's most comfortable for you.  

Capo 2

VERSE 1
 
D
Good-day sunlight
C                                    Bm
I'd like to say how truly bright you are
                      C
You don't know me but I know you, see
                     D
You're my favorite star
        C
Follow you I will so let’s get moving


CHORUS
Bm                          E
Who needs shelter when the morning’s coming?
Bm                      E
Absolutely there's no one
Bm                          E
Who needs shelter from the sun?
Bm                  E
Not me, no, not anyone.


VERSE 2
D
By your clock the cock rooster crows
     C				   Bm
Then off to work where everybody goes 
			   C
Slow, But eventually they get there
D
Picking up the day shift 
C
Back where all left off confined and 
Bm
Pecking at relationships 
	C
You know it's only a worthless piece of shit


CHORUS
Bm                          E
Who needs shelter when the morning's coming?
Bm                      E
Absolutely there's no one
Bm                          E
Who needs shelter from the sun?
Bm                  E
Not me, no, not anyone.


BRIDGE (strum on up beat)
Am            E     Am    		  E                   
I'd sleep it all away but the sun wont let me
Am              E         G    G-D/F#-Em-G
I'd miss those lovely days of              summer


OUTRO

Good-day sunlight

You don't know me but I know you, see
