                             Wildfire - John Mayer
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Lukas G
E-mail: lukas.gardberg@hotmail.com

Tuning: standard

This is my first tab, any tips or fixes are appreciated!

Here is the link to the official video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lK2kKg4ao2I

This song is a part of Johns new record "Paradise Valley" which will be out the 13th of August.
This song however will be released as a single before the record is out.

[Intro]

This riff is played in the intro, along with the chord D#.
It goes relatively fast, just try to listen to the timings in the song.
You can also find this riff in some other places of the song.

e|--11-11--------------------------| 
B|--11-11-13p11--13-13p11----------| 
G|--12-12------12--------12--------| 
D|-------------------------13-13---| 
A|---------------------------------| 
E|---------------------------------|

Here is another riff that's also played along with the intro and sometimes the verse.
e|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---15-15b17---10b12-12br10-8---15-15b17-10b12-10b12-8------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Keep in mind that in some places of the verses no chords are played, there are just clapping.


[Verse]
D#
River's strong, you can swim inside it

You can string some lights up here beside it 
G#                                                                  D#
Tonight the moon's so bright you could drive with your headlights out
A#                                       G#                 D#
'Cause a little bit of summer's what the whole year's all about


[Clapping]
You look fine, fine, fine, put your feet up next to mine

We can watch that borderline get higher and higher

Say, say, say ain't it been some kinda day

You and me been catchin' on like a wildfire

(D# and Riff 1 and 2 together)

[Verse]
D#
Don't get up just to get another, you can drink from mine, we can't leave

each other
G#
We can dance with the dead, you can rest your head on my shoulder if you
                       D#
want to get older with me
A#                                    G#           D#
'Cause a little bit of summer makes a lot of history


[Clapping]
You look fine, fine, fine, put your feet up next to mine

We can watch that borderline get higher and higher

Say, say, say ain't it been some kinda day

You and me been catchin' on like a wildfire

G# - F# - G# - F#

G#
I got a rock from the river in my medecine bag
F#
Magpie feather in his medecine bag

G# - A#

[Clapping]
Say, say, say ain't it been some kinda day

You and me been catchin' on like a wildfire


[Outro D#]

Also, the bridge isn't G# - C#, but it is G# - F#.
The bridge ends with, I think, G# - A#.
