     AGE OF WORRY - John Mayer
-----------------------------------------------------------------

With the help of a couple other tabs and two videos of John playing, I think I've put 
together a completely accurate tab (hopefully). Enjoy!


Tuning: EADGBe

(T): Use thumb on bass note
(m): Use middle finger on bass note
 x : Mute note

INTRO

For this part, it's easiest to just pick with your thumb and index finger while resting 
your other fingers on the guitar. Start out with a G shape on the third fret with your 
thumb fretting the root on the low E.

If you're playing solo, you might just repeat that the rest of the song. Or, you could 
play the chords, as John often does with the band:

   Gadd9           Dadd4          C6sus2
e|---5---------------5--------------5----------------------------|
B|---3---------------3--------------3----------------------------|
G|---4---------------0--------------x----------------------------|
D|---5---------------4--------------0----------------------------|
A|---x---------------5--------------3----------------------------|
E|---3---------------3--------------x----------------------------|
    (T)             (T)            (T)

These chords are pretty weird and difficult to play — I extrapolated them best I could 
from a video of a live performance on Letterman — so alternatively, use simpler open 
chords (G5, D/F#, Cadd9).

Gadd9(G5)   Dadd4(D/F#)  C6sus2(Cadd9)
Close your eyes and      clone yourself

C6sus2(Cadd9)       Gadd9(G5) Dadd4(D/F#)   Gadd9(G5)
Build your heart an ar-       my

       Dadd4(D/F#)  C6sus2(Cadd9)
To defend your      innocence

             Dadd4(D/F#)  Gadd9(G5)
While you do everything   wrong


G5       D/F#        Cadd9
Don't be scared to walk alone
Cadd9              G5   D/F#   G5
Don't be scared to like it

           D/F#          Cadd9
There's no time that you must be home, so

            D/F#          G5
Sleep where darkness falls


G5           D/F#     Cadd9
Alive in the age of worry

Cadd9               G5  D/F#
Smile in the age of wor-ry

   G5          D/F#   Cadd9
Go wild in the age of worry

         Cadd9   D/F#         G5
And say, "Worry, why should I care?"


G5   D/F#   Cadd9   Cadd9   D/F#  G5
(Oooooooooooooooh)  (Ooooooooooooooh)


G5        D/F#     Cadd9
Know your fight is not with them

Cadd9              G5   D/F#
Yours is with your time here

G5         D/F#       Cadd9
Dream your dreams but don't pretend

     Cadd9        D/F#        G5
Make friends with what you are


G5        D/F#       Cadd9
Give your heart then change your mind

Cadd9             G5  D/F#
You're allowed to do  it

       G5        D/F#      Cadd9
'Cause God knows it's been done to you

   Cadd9  D/F#      G5
And somehow you got through it


 G5          D/F#   Cadd9
Alive in the age of worry

Cadd9              G5  D/F#
Rage in the age of wor-ry

     G5         D/F#   Cadd9
Sing out in the age of worry

         Cadd9   D/F#         G5
And say, "Worry, why should I care?"


G5   D/F#  Cadd9

Cadd9              G5  D/F#
Rage in the age of wor-ry

         G5         D/F#   Cadd9
Act your age in the age of worry
         Cadd9   D/F#       G5
And say, "Worry, get out of here!"

Cadd9   D/F#    G5

Cadd9   D/F#    G5
