MOCKINGBIRD
Rob Thomas

Intro:  CF 

[C] Here we stand 
Somewhere in between this [F] moment and the end 
[C] Will we bend? 
Or will we open up and [F] take this whole thing in?
[C] Everybody else is smiling 
And their [F] smiles don’t fade 
And you [C] don’t even wonder why 
You just don’t [F] think that way 

Maybe [C] you and me got lost somewhere, 
We [G] can’t move or we can’t stay here 
Well, [Am] maybe we’ve just had enough, 
Well, [F] maybe we ain’t meant for this love 

[C] You and me tried everything 
But [G] still that mocking bird won’t sing 
Well, [Am] man this life seems hard enough 
Well, [F] maybe we ain’t meant for this love [C]  

[C] Take my hand 
And I will lead you through the [F] broken promise land 
[C] Yes I can, oh yes I can 
I can be there when you [F] need it, 
I’ll give it all till you can’t feel it anymore 
[C] I don’t wanna love you now, 
If you’ll just [F] leave someday 
[C] I don’t wanna turn around, 
If you’ll just [F] walk away 

Maybe [C] you and me got lost somewhere, 
We [G] can’t move or we can’t stay here 
Well, [Am] maybe we’ve just had enough, 
Well, [F] maybe we ain’t meant for this love 

[C] You and me tried everything 
But [G] still that mocking bird won’t sing 
Well, [Am] man this life seems hard enough 
Well, [F] maybe we ain’t meant for this love [C]  

Instrumental bridge: CGAmF 

Maybe [C] you and me got lost somewhere, 
We [G] can’t move or we can’t stay here 
Well, [Am] maybe we’ve just had enough, 
Well, [F] maybe we ain’t meant for this love 

[C] You and me tried everything 
But [G] still that mocking bird won’t sing 
Well, [Am] man this life seems hard enough 
Well, [F] maybe we ain’t meant for this love [C]  

[CGAmF] Maybe we ain’t meant for this love
[CGAmF] Maybe we ain’t meant for this love [C]

This is a great start!

To get the feel for the beginning, I'd definitely, change the straight C - F to:

C -F; C -C -C -C -F & repeat
listen to the intro to get the actual rhythms for this.

To add richness in play, for each chord in the progression, I'd play:

C, then Cadd9;

G, then G/C;

Am, then Asus4 (very optional)

F, then Fadd9

I've found that the prechorus (e.g. from "Everybody else is smiling ") isn't C, but rather G (so you switch back and forth from G to F instead of C to F). Not a big change, but it definitely matches the recording better.
