Drink The Water
Jack Johnson
Tabbed by Brian Noy

The intro kind of goes like this. I know it's missing a few notes but if
you play this with the right rythm, anyone who knows the song will reconize it.

e-------------------- I've    ------------------------------|
B-------------------- heard   ------------------------------|
G-------------------- him do  ------9--11-----13--9--11-----|
D-------------------- it live --11--9--11--9--13--9--11--9--|
A--4-7-9-2-11-7-9-7-- like    --11--7--9---9--11--7--9---9--|
E-------------------- this--> --9----------7-------------7--|

The verses mainly go Dm, G#, F# on the Brushfire Fairytales CD. In his acoustic
version he plays a G7 real quick before switching to F#

   Drink the water...Spit it...I didn't want this
   Dm                G#    G7  F#
e---4----------------4-----3---2-----------|
B---5----------------4-----3---2-----------|
G---6----------------5-----4---3-----------|
D---6----------------6-----3---4-----------|
A---4----------------6-----5---4-----------|
E---4----------------4-----3---3-----------|

The chorus is played E, G#, Dm two times through and then goes into the intro
again. On an acoustic version he plays G# and A after the chorus

    To time to swim a shore
    E          G#     Dm    repeat  G# A  G#
e---0----------4------4--------|----4--5--4-|
B---0----------4------5--------|----4--5--4-|
G---1----------5------6--------|----5--6--5-|
D---2----------6------6--------|----6--7--6-|
A---2----------6------4--------|----6--7--6-|
E---0----------4------4--------|----4--5--4-|

The rest of the song follows those same chord progressions
