D (drop high E to open string where appropriate)
Waiting on the day/ 
C                           D
When my thoughts are my own/ 
C                          D
When this house is my home/ 
                       A
And planes are leaving/ 
Bmin     D               G
Will you be there for me baby?/
Bmin     D               G 
Will you love me all the way/ 
Bmin     D            
When you take my side/
G 
In every little fire fight/ 
Bmin     D                    G
When you hang your things and stay/ 
D
I'm waiting on the day/ 
C                      D
When my life on the run/ 
C                     D
Reaches out in the sun/ 
A
Shows my age/ 
D
I'm waiting on the day/ 
C                           D
When that voice comes to say/ 
C
It's not wrong what you did/ 
A
For just a kid/ 
Bmin     D               G
Will you be there for me baby?/
Bmin     D               G
Will you love me all the way?/ 
Bmin     D                 G             
When you take my side,/ In every little fire fight/ 
Bmin     D                    G
When you hang your things and stay?/ 
D
I'm waiting on the day/ 

INSTRUMENTAL

D
Waiting on the day/
C                           D
When these words are in stone/ 
C                         D
When the kids are all grown/ 
A                Bmin  D              G
And we go dancing/ Oh can you do it baby?/ 
Bmin    D                  G
Can you love me all the way?/ 
Bmin     D           G
Will you tie me tight/ In little strands of paradise/ 
Bmin     D                                   G
Will you walk with me before the morning fades?/ 

D (See below)
I'm waiting on the day

For the outro of the studio version you essentially play improve on a D chord and 
alternate between three bass notes (first being Open D, Second being 3nd fret of 
Open A and third being 2nd fret of Open A). Play around with that and tweak it to 
whichever way suits you. Open for suggestions @ bendavidkremer@...gmail.com (minus 
the ...) - I've purposefully "dumbed down" the song so that beginners etc would be 
able to give it a crack.

Cheers,
Ben

i think people are confused by the "C." what i did was play at the seventh fret with the "D" positioning of the fingers and it sounds just like the second thing Mayer plays. it is a dumbed down version and i appreciate that since i'm a beginner, thank you!

Lack of accuracy. Tab incomplete. Clearly wrong.
