WALT GRACE'S SUBMARINE TEST, JANUARY 1967 -- JOHN MAYER, "Born and Raised" (2012)
Exact chords tabbed by ClassicalfreaK, 2015
 ** I noticed a lot of discrepancies with this song with other people, and I'm uploading 
a version that has the exact chords with the right extensions. If the key of F# is too hard
(It IS a hard key!) then you could transpose it down a whole-step to E and use second capo. **
 ** The "chord - - - " layout is to distinguish beat, so during instrumental sections you know
exactly when you should be changing chords. **

CHORD DIAGRAM:
Bmaj7       x-2-4-3-4-2
C#          x-4-6-6-6-4
Bmaj7/D#    x-6-9-8-7-6
C#/E#       x-8-10-9-8-x 
    OR      1-4-3-1-2-1 (like a first-position C/E chord)
F#          x-9-11-11-11-9
    OR      2-4-4-3-2-2
F#/C#       9-9-11-11-11-9
    OR      x-4-4-6-7-6 (not ideal; like a first-position D chord on top)
D#m         x-6-8-8-7-6
B6          x-2-4-4-4-4
G#m         4-6-6-4-4-4
C#sus       x-4-6-6-7-x
G#m7        4-6-4-4-4-4 (basic voicing)
    OR      4-6-6-4-6-4 (nicer sounding voicing)
G#          4-6-6-5-4-4

BM7 | C# | BM7/D# | C#/E#
          (slow 2nd x--->)

VERSE
F#                      F#/C#      BM7
Walt Grace, desperately hating his old place
              C#          D#m                 C#        B6
Dreamed to discover a new space and buried himself alive
           F#
Inside his basement
                  F#/C#       BM7
The tongue on the side of his face meant
             C#          D#m
He's working away on displacement
     C#                      B6
And what it would take to survive

BRIDGE
G#m                 D#m            C#
 'Cause when you're done with this world
G#m                 D#m        C#
 You know the next is up to you

CHORUS
        F#            B           C#sus C#
And his wife told his kids he was crazy
        F#                B          G#m7 C#
And his friends said he'd fail if he tried
             F#           B          D#m     G#
But with the will to work hard and a library card
          BM7                  C#sus   C#            
He took a homemade, fan blade, one-man submarine ride
F# - - D#m | F# - - D#m |
F# - - D#m | F# - - D#m |

VERSE
     F#                  F#/C      BM7
That morning the sea was mad and I mean it
         C#          D#m                 B6
Waves as big as he'd seen it deep in his dreams at home
     F#                     F#/C#   BM7
From dry land, he rolled it over to wet sand
           C#            D#m
Closed the hatch up with one hand
    C#          B6
And pedaled off alone

BRIDGE
G#m                 D#m            C#
 'Cause when you're done with this world
G#m           D#m           C#
 You know the next is up to you

CHORUS
        F#          B            C#sus C#
And for once in his life, it was quiet
      F#             B           G#m7 C#
As he learned how to turn in the tide
        F#       B             D#m         G#
And the sky was aflare when he came up for air
       BM7                  C#sus   C#
In his homemade, fan blade, one-man submarine ride

F# - - D#m | F# - - D#m |

VERSE
    F#                      F#/C#            BM7
One evening, when weeks had passed since his leaving
             C#         D#m               C#      B6
The call she planned on receiving finally made it home
      F#                  F#/C# BM7
She accepted the news she never expected
        C#      D#m        C#             B6
The operator connected the call from Tokyo

BRIDGE
G#m                 D#m            C#
 'Cause when you're done with this world
G#m           D#m              C#
 You know the next is up to you

CHORUS
        F#                B               C#sus C#
Now his friends bring him up when they're drinking
       F#           B           G#m7 C#
At the bar with his name on the side
         F#              B            D#m          G$
And they smile when they can, as they speak of the man
           BM7                  C#sus   C#
Who took a homemade, fan blade, one-man submarine ride

F# - - D#m | F# - - D#m |
F# - - D#m | F# - - D#m | F#||
