Jason Mraz Version 

(INTRO)

A and D picking pattern x2

(INTRO)
e-------------------|
B-------------------|
G----6---6--------7-|
D---------------7---| (play twice)
A--7----------5-----|
E-5----5------------|

(VERSE)
A                 F#m   
Why are there so many
Bm             E
songs about rainbows?
      A            F#m    Bm   E
And what's on the other side?
A              F#m
Rainbows are visions,
     
Bm         E
but only illusions.
A               F#m       Bm    E
Rainbows have nothing to hide.

(PRE-CHORUS)
Dm7
What's so amazing

that keeps us stargazing?
C#m7
And what do they think

we might see?

(CHORUS)
Bm             E
Someday we'll find it
       A        F#m
the rainbow connection
Bm                 E
The lovers, the dreamers,
     A
and me

(VERSE)
A                F#m
Have you been half-asleep?
     Bm                 E
And have you heard the voices?
       A                F#m      Bm    E
Well I've heard them calling my name
A              F#m                Bm
Are these the sweet sounds that called
            E
the young sailors?
A                 F#m         Bm    E
I think they are one and the same

(PRE-CHORUS)
Dm7
I've heard it too many, many, 

many times to ignore it,
C#m7
There's something that

I'm supposed to see

(CHORUS)x2
Bm             E
Someday we'll find it,
      A         F#m
the rainbow connection,
      Bm          E
The lovers, the dreamers,
    A
and me

(OUTRO)
After the chorus is played twice, use the A and D picking intro pattern.

The verse is spot on, well done.
As for the pre-chorus, I can't make those chords sound right, but a D and a C#m work well for me, adding a Cm on the way down (not necessary, just fun).

D
What's so amazing that keeps us stargazing?
C#m Cm Bm
And what do they think we might see? Someday...

Then in the chorus the F#m should be an F#.

A F#
...the rainbow connection

Not sure why it removed all my spacing...
