John Mayer – Vultures
Continuum

Tabbed by Adam D.

This is a great catchy tune off the Continuum record. The other tabs for this song are 
but this tab is for those of us without a full band behind us and play on acoustic.

* = slap the strings with your thumb
I play this song without a pick and use all fingers on my right hand. Don’t be afraid to 
a nice jazz groove going on…:)

T = get your thumb on that E string

Verse 1

F#m – C#m7,   F#m  - C#m7- C#m7
Some of us, We're hardly ever here
The rest of us, we're born to disappear
How do I stop myself from
Being just a number
How will I hold my head
To keep from going under

Chorus
A
Down to the wire I wanted water but
B
I'll walk through the fire If this is what it takes
A
To take me even higher Then I'll come through
B
Like I do When the world keeps
Testing me, testing me, testing me

Verse 2

How did they find me here
What do they want from me
All of these vultures hiding
Right outside my door
I hear them whisperin
They're tryin to ride it out
Cause they've never gone this long
Without a kill before

Chorus

(feel free to rock out a nice solo in C#m)

Verse 3

Wheels up
I got to leave this evening
Can't seem to shake these vultures
Off of my trail
Power is made, by power being taken
So I keep on running
To protect my situation

Chorus

(play verse/intro guitar part until fade out)
Oooooooooooo
Oooooooooooo
Oooooooooooo
Oooooooooooo
Whatcha gunna do about it
Whatcha gunna do about it
Whatcha gunna do about it

Don't give up give up
Don't give up give up give up
Don't give up give up give up

Do you have a video for reference, or did you just make this up yourself? It sounds a little off, but it could just be me.

Sorry, no video reference.
Should have made it more clear - this is my version of this song on acoustic.
So it's not going to sound the same on the JM record, but then again, this a single acoustic not a full band.
