I've been making my own tabs for a while, but this is the first I've posted (only 
because there are no good ones out there and this is a great song). It is played 
moderately fast, so practice slowly before you move onto playing with the song, 
but some parts do need to be heard to understand the picking rhythm (as they sound 
strange played incorrectly). Let me know if any errors are found. 
Thanks and enjoy! :)

[Verse 1]

CaddG
 Gonna put the the world away for a minute 
F
 Pretend I don't live in it 
C               G              C
 Sunshine gonna wash my blues away 
CaddG
 Had sweet love but I lost it 
F
 She got too close so I fought her 
         Am          G               F         G      C
 Now I'm lost in the world trying to find me a better way 


[Chorus]

              CaddG
 Wishing I was knee deep in the water somewhere 
         F
 Got the blue sky breeze and it don't seem fair 
      C                         G                   C      [*]
 Only worry in the world is the tide gonna reach my chair 
CaddG
 Sunrise there's a fire in the sky 
       F
 Never been so happy, never felt so high 
       Am                 G           F           G   C
 And I think I might have found me my own kind of paradise 

Riff [1st half]


[Verse 2]

CaddG
 Wrote a note said be back in a minute 
F
 Bought a boat and I sailed off in it                  C

 Am            G            F          G   C
 Wishing my condition ain't ever gonna go away 


[Chorus]

               CaddG
 Cause now I'm knee deep in the water somewhere 
         F
 Got the blue sky breeze blowing wind through my hair 
      C                         G                   C      [*]
 Only worry in the world is the tide gonna reach my chair

 Never been so happy, never felt so high

 And I think I might have found me my own kind of paradise 


[Verse 3]

      Am                      C
 This champagne shore washing over me 
        G                               C         CaddBb
 It's a sweet, sweet life living by the salty sea 
 F                       C
 One day you could be as lost as me 
               D7
 Change your geography 
       G
 Maybe you might be

 CaddG [x1]

[Outro]

 C [x1]                       G [x1]

C [x1]      G [x1]            Am [x1]      G [x1]  F [x1]
 Grab a backpack of lies, you never know until you try

 When you lose yourself, you find the key to paradise

~ADDIONAL LEAD RIFF~
This is the lead guitar lick that is played occasionally throughout the song 
(marked by [*]). It just consists of keeping the forefinger on the 11th fret of 
the B and high E string while pulling off with either the middle or ring finger 
and the pinky. Since it requires 2 guitars, I did not include it in my main work 
(although the ending little lick in the Intro Riff is also a second guitar, but I 
decided to put that in as it's manageable to play with everything else), but if 
anyone is interested, here's the tabs! :)

Dude, this was awesome! Just looked at the clock, and I've been jamming to this for like two hours straight... Awsome song, awesome tabbing-work!

Wish the riff parts were om Guitar Pro though, makes it a whole lot easier to learn, no matter how good the tabbing is.. :/ Can't find anything to this song for Guitar Pro, not even a noob kid who did everything wrong -.-

Might tab it on GP myself, if I just didn't suck so bad at GP editing...

Thanks for the feedback. :) Love to hear that my tabs are getting used! I was planning on adding more tabs when I submitted this one to Ultimate Guitar, but it was a pain in the arse to get it posted! Took several weeks and multiple declines before I had a site manager take care of it for me. Too much trouble to try and help the community!

Anyways, if I tried to make Guitar Pro tabbing, I probably could, but honestly I prefer to learn by seeing it on paper and listening to the song rather than seeing it played on GP.

Also, I updated 1 chord, the Cm. Changed it to a CaddBb, which is shown how to play near the bottom. Keep up the playin'!
