8th fret
Say by John Mayer
From "The Bucket List"
Tabbed By Thomas Cadmus

Note: There is a slight tuning change but still sounds perfect without it. The bridge is 
little off. If you fiddle around with it you'll get it.

Capo 8th

D Dsus4 D D7 (x4)

Verse 1:
                  D      Dsus4   D  D7
Take out all your wasted honour

             D       Dsus4    D  D7
Every little past frustration

                 D         Dsus4    D  D7
Take all of your so called problems

           D          Dsus4   D  D7
Better put them in quotations


             D       G
Say what you need to say

             Bm      A
Say what you need to say

             D       G
Say what you need to say

             Bm      A
Say what you need to say

Intro (x4)

Verse 2:

               D       Dsus4  D  D7
Walking like a one man army

                  D          Dsus4     D  D7
Fighting with the shadows in your head

              D        Dsus4  D  D7
Living on the same old moment

                  D           Dsus4         D     D7
Knowing you'll be better off instead if you could only

Repeat Chorus:


Am       C            D
Have no fear for givin in

Am       C            D
Have no fear for givin all of it

Am        C         D
You better know that in the end

Its better you say too much

Than never to say what you need to say again

Intro (x4)

Verse 3:

             D         Dsud4   D  D7
Even if your hands are shaking

         D        Dsus4    D  D7
And your faith is breaking

            D        Dsus4   D  D7
Even as the eyes are closing

             D          Dsus4  D  D7
Do it with a heart wide open

Repeat chorus (fade out)

I like the tab dude, but I really Don't think the chord preogression is (D Dsus4 D D7)

I think it sounds better if if you play it: (D Dsus4 D 000220)I'm not sure what the name of this chord is
