Jack Johnson - I got you
Hey folks here is Jack's new single I got you. Of course you can play it without capo, 
but to play it with is easier and sounds more like the original, because of the open 
strings. So here we go... if you like, feel free to rate it, thanx...

Capo on 4th fret
standard tuning
chords used in the song:(relative to the capo)
C (x3x03x)
G (3xx03x)
D (xx023x)
the intro lick uses just some variations of these chords
xxx means slap the strings with your thumb in the typical J.J. way ;-)

Chorus just the same chords, really easy to play.... here are the lyrics:


Back when all my little goals seemed so important
Every pot of gold fill and full of distortion
Heaven was a place still in space not in motion
But soon

I got you
I got everything
Iíve got you
I donít need nothing
More than you
I got everything
Iíve got you

We went walking through the hills
Tryiní to pretend that we both know
Maybe if we save up
We can build a little home
But then the hell storm came and yelled,
ďYou need to let go, youíve got no control. No.Ē

I got you
I got everything
Iíve got you
I donít need nothing
More than you
I got everything
Iíve got you

This weightís too much alone
Some days I can't hold it at all
You take it on for me
When tomorrowís too much
Iíll carry it all
Iíve got you

And when tomorrowís too much
Iíll carry it all
I got you

I got you
I got everything
Iíve got you
I donít need nothing
More than you
I got everything
Iíve got you
