     AGE OF WORRY - John Mayer
-----------------------------------------------------------------

With the help of a couple other tabs and two videos of John playing, I think I've put 
together a completely accurate tab (hopefully). Enjoy!


Tuning: EADGBe

(T): Use thumb on bass note
(m): Use middle finger on bass note
 x : Mute note

INTRO

For this part, it's easiest to just pick with your thumb and index finger while resting 
your other fingers on the guitar. Start out with a G shape on the third fret with your 
thumb fretting the root on the low E.

e|---------------------------------------------------------------|

                                                    (T) (T) (T) (T) (T) (T)

If you're playing solo, you might just repeat that the rest of the song. Or, you could 
play the chords, as John often does with the band:

   Gadd9           Dadd4          C6sus2
e|---5---------------5--------------5----------------------------|
B|---3---------------3--------------3----------------------------|
G|---4---------------0--------------x----------------------------|
D|---5---------------4--------------0----------------------------|
A|---x---------------5--------------3----------------------------|
E|---3---------------3--------------x----------------------------|
    (T)             (T)            (T)

These chords are pretty weird and difficult to play — I extrapolated them best I could 
from a video of a live performance on Letterman — so alternatively, use simpler open 
chords (G5, D/F#, Cadd9).

Gadd9(G5)   Dadd4(D/F#)  C6sus2(Cadd9)
Close your eyes and      clone yourself

C6sus2(Cadd9)       Gadd9(G5) Dadd4(D/F#)   Gadd9(G5)
Build your heart an ar-       my

       Dadd4(D/F#)  C6sus2(Cadd9)
To defend your      innocence

             Dadd4(D/F#)  Gadd9(G5)
While you do everything   wrong


G5       D/F#        Cadd9
Don't be scared to walk alone
Cadd9              G5   D/F#   G5
Don't be scared to like it

           D/F#          Cadd9
There's no time that you must be home, so

            D/F#          G5
Sleep where darkness falls


G5           D/F#     Cadd9
Alive in the age of worry

Cadd9               G5  D/F#
Smile in the age of wor-ry

   G5          D/F#   Cadd9
Go wild in the age of worry

         Cadd9   D/F#         G5
And say, "Worry, why should I care?"


G5   D/F#   Cadd9   Cadd9   D/F#  G5
(Oooooooooooooooh)  (Ooooooooooooooh)


G5        D/F#     Cadd9
Know your fight is not with them

Cadd9              G5   D/F#
Yours is with your time here

G5         D/F#       Cadd9
Dream your dreams but don't pretend

     Cadd9        D/F#        G5
Make friends with what you are


G5        D/F#       Cadd9
Give your heart then change your mind

Cadd9             G5  D/F#
You're allowed to do  it

       G5        D/F#      Cadd9
'Cause God knows it's been done to you

   Cadd9  D/F#      G5
And somehow you got through it


 G5          D/F#   Cadd9
Alive in the age of worry

Cadd9              G5  D/F#
Rage in the age of wor-ry

     G5         D/F#   Cadd9
Sing out in the age of worry

         Cadd9   D/F#         G5
And say, "Worry, why should I care?"


G5   D/F#  Cadd9

Cadd9              G5  D/F#
Rage in the age of wor-ry

         G5         D/F#   Cadd9
Act your age in the age of worry
         Cadd9   D/F#       G5
And say, "Worry, get out of here!"

Cadd9   D/F#    G5

Cadd9   D/F#    G5
