          Here is one of the best songs off of Maroon.  It's really fun to play, too; very up-tempo.   
          This is also my first tab, so I would greatly appreciate some feedback.  Thanks!

          **These are all basically the same riff and it's ok to play each one the same way.  I just like a little variety.**
          
          This is the little part at the end of verses 1, 3, and 5.

          INTRO:
          G  Cadd9  x 4
          
          VERSE 1:
                                         G        Cadd9
          Well let me tell you if you're feeling alone,
                      G          Cadd9
          Instead of whining and moaning,
               G           Cadd9          G             Cadd9
          Just get on the phone, tell her you're coming home
                 Riff 1               
          If you need her, you should be there
          
          VERSE 2:
                     G               Cadd9        G          Cadd9
          And if you scream in your sleep, or collapse in a heap
                   G         Cadd9         G              Cadd9
          And spontaneously weep then you know you're in deep
                 Riff 2
          If you need her, you should be there
              G   Cadd9   G  
          Go Home.
          
          CHORUS 1:
          Riff 3
          There's nothing better than affairs of the heart
          G           G/F#              Em
          To make you feel so good then tear you appart
          Riff 3                                        G   Cadd9  G   Cadd9
          Make up your mind and stick it out or start again.
          
          VERSE 3:
                                    G         Cadd9
          You can't imagine what an effort it takes
                   G         Cadd9
          When you make a mistake
                  G            Cadd9      G              Cadd9
          And you know in the wake that a heart's gonna break
                 Riff 1
          If you need her, you should be there
          
          VERSE 4:
                    G              Cadd9
          If you're flummoxed and flushed
                   G             Cadd9
          And your heartbeat is rushed
                   G           Cadd9           G            Cadd9          
          Then get out of the slush, tell your dog team to mush
                 Riff 2
          If you need her, you should be there,
              G   Cadd9   G   
          Go Home.
          
          CHORUS 2:
          Riff 3
          If you think of her as Joan of Arc
          G             G/F#              Em          Em7
          She's burning for you, get your car out of park
          Riff 3
          If you think of her as Catherine the Great
               G                 G/F#              Em       Em7
          Then you should be the horse to help her meet her fate
          Riff 4
          If you need her, you should be there,
             G   Cadd9   G   Bm
          Go Home.
          
          BRIDGE:
          Em           D                    G   Cadd9   G   Bm
          You can't believe it, but it's true
          Em           D               G   Cadd9   G   Bm
          She's given everything to you
          Em         F            Am   
          Now take a moment to be sure
                     Cm                G   Cadd9   G   Cadd9
          Before you give it all to her.
          
          VERSE 5:
                                             G        Cadd9
          Well now you're thinking that it's over at last, 
                   G            Cadd9
          All your woes in the past
                     G          Cadd9         G            Cadd9
          But you've got to be fast; put your foot on the gas 
                 Riff 1
          If you need her, you should be there
          
          VERSE 6:
                                 G          Cadd9
          So now you're out from under the gun,
                   G         Cadd9
          And it's over and done
                  G              Cadd9     G         Cadd9
          I won't spoil all the fun but if you ever wonder
          Riff 2
          She'll be there if you need her
              G   Cadd9   G  
          Go Home.
          
          CHORUS 3:
          Riff 3
          If you're lucky to be one of the few
          G           G/F#         Em       Em7
          To find somebody who can tolerate you
          Riff 3
          Then I shouldn't have to tell you again
          G              G/F#             Em          Em7
          Just pack your bags and get yourself on a plane
          Riff 4
          If you need her, you should be there, 
              G   G/F#   Em    Em7
          Go Home........C'mon man, 
          Riff 2
          If you need her, you should be there,
              G   Cadd9   G   Cadd9   G   Cadd9   G D/F# G 
          Go Hoooooooome...                         Fuck yeah!
