Breakaway (John Mayer) 
transcribed by Catherine Gagné (www3.sympatico.ca/g403z)

* This tab is not accurate at all..

Intro 

e--------------------------------------------------------------------- 
b--------------------------------------------------------------------- 
g--------------------------------------------7------7----------------- 
d--9----9-------9-----------------(x2)---7------------------------(x2) 
a--9h11----9h11-----9--11--9-------------7h9----7h9----7--9--7-------- 
e--0--------------------------12---------0----------------------10---- 

e------------------------- 
b------------------------- 
g-------8------8h9----9--- 
d---------9----9------7--- 
a--------------------/5--- 
e---/9-------9------------ 

The pattern changes a lot.. I only wrote the guidelines.


Part 1 

Verse 

e------------------------------------------------------(0)(0)-(0)-- 
b------------------------------------------------------(0)(0)-(0)-- 
g---------9-------9---9------------7-------7----7-------8--9---9--- 
d----9----9--9----9---9--(x2)--7---7---7---7----7--(x2)-9--9---7--- 
a----9h11----9h11----11--------7h9-----7h9------9-------x--x--/5--- 
e----0-------0--------0--------0-------0--------0-------9--9------- 

* (9x9800)/(9x9900) might be (x4x440)/(x4x450) 


Part 2 

"Can I have my cake?" 

e---0---0---0----0--0--- 
b---0---0---0----0--0--- 
g---4---6---4----8--9--- 
d---4---7---4----9--9--- 
a---x---x---x----x--x--- 
e---4---5---4----9--9--- 


Part 3 

"Would the world between us.." 

e---0---0---x---0---0- 
b---0---0---2---0---0- 
g---2---4---3---6---6- 
d---2---4---2---7---7- 
a---x---x---x---0---x- 
e---2---4---2-------7- 

I think that John doesn't play (x07600)/(7x7600).. he seems to be using 
(x0220x) and (x2x220). 


Part 4 

"Would the world between us.." 

e---0---0-------0---x--------- 
b---0---0-------0---2--------- 
g---2---4--(5)--4---3---6---6- 
d---2---4--(4)--4---2---7---7- 
a---x---x--(x)--x---x---0---x- 
e---2---4--(4)--4---2-------7-

I only have one version of the song and I hear (4x45xx) at 3:15 min. I 
think it might be a mistake but I'm not sure. 


Part 5 

"Could I ever beak away?..." 

e------------3---5---0--- 
b------------3---5---0--- 
g----9---7---5---7---1--- 
d----9---7---5---7---4--- 
a---11---9---3---5---2--- 
e----0---0---x---x---0--- 


(1) If melody is my destiny 
Then what's left of me 
I'll give to you 

(1) If next to me 
Is all that you need to be 
Would you settle for fantasy 
If its the best you could do 

(2) Can I have my cake? 
Can I have you too? 
Would you follow me? 
Could I ask you to? 

(3) Would the world between us 
break these ties 
We've work so hard to realize 
Can a postcard say 
What I see in your eyes? 
Could I ever break away? 

Intro 

(1) Would I be satisfied 
and find peace inside 
Rolling half my life 
over broken white lines 

(2) Can I have my cake? 
Can I have you too? 
Would you follow me? 
Could I ask you to? 

(3) Will I wake up one morning 
and see your face 
and streaks on the window 
that the rainstorm makes 
Could you bear all the weight 
and the strength that it takes 
could I ever break away 

(2) Can I have my cake? 
Can I have you too? 
Would you follow me? 
Could I ask you to? 

(4) Would the world between us 
break these ties 
We've work so hard to realize 
Can a postcard say 
What I see in your eyes? 
Could I ever break away? (5)
