Free Fallin'

John Mayer's cover of the Tom Petty classic, from his live album 'Where the Light 
Is: Mayer Live in Los Angeles'.

None of the other versions were how John plays it. They 
aren't wrong, but are Tom Petty's way of playing, not John Mayer's.

Although most of the song is fingerpicked, its fingerpicked through the 3 chords: D/F#, G and A.

I think it sounds best to have the A string and the high E muted.

The A can be varied with an Asus4. It's up to you 
what sound you like best.

Also, the first G of each line could be played as a Dsus4/G (3x0233), and in fact 
probably sounds better, but again its up to you...

Capo 3


        D/F#  G     G      D/F#  A
She's a good  girl, loves  her   mama.
      D/F# G       G    D/F#  A
Loves Je- sus, and America    too.
       D/F#  G     G      D/F#  A
Shes a good  girl, crazy 'bout  Elvis
      D/F# G            G   D/F#   A
Loves hor- ses, and her boy-friend too, yeah yeah.


D/F# - G - G - D/F# - A


       D/F#  G   G      D/F#  A
It's a long  day living in    Reseda.
          D/F#  G   G       D/F#        A
There's a free- way runnin' through the yard.
      D/F#  G            G     D/F#  A
I'm a bad   boy 'cause I don't even  miss her.
      D/F#  G       G        D/F#  A
I'm a bad   boy for breakin' her   heart.


        D/F#  G   G - D/F# - A
And I'm free,
     D/F#     G       G - D/F# - A
Free fallin', fallin'

Free fallin', fallin'


        D/F#  G     G       D/F#        A
All the vam-  pires walkin' through the valley.
          D/F#  G       G    D/F#  A
They move west  down Ventura Boule-vard.
            D/F#  G        G        D/F#    A
And all the bad   boys are standing in  the shadows.
        D/F#  G         G         D/F#   A
And the good  girls are home with broken hearts.


        D/F#  G   G - D/F# - A
And I'm free,
     D/F#     G       G - D/F# - A
Free fallin', fallin'

Free  fallin' now.   Free  fallin', now


        D/F#  G    G    D/F# A
I wanna glide down over Mul- holland.
        D/F#  G        G    D/F#    A
I wanna write her, her name in  the sky.
        D/F#  G    G   D/F#  A
I wanna free  fall out into  nothin'.
              D/F#  G          G     D/F#  A
Oh, I'm gonna leave this, this world for a while.


        D/F#  G   G - D/F# - A
Now I'm free,
     D/F#     G       G - D/F# - A
Free fallin', fallin'
        D/F#  G   G - D/F# - A
Now I'm free,
