Mason Jennings - If You Need A Reason tab

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
I think that the other version of this song is way too complicated.  So here's the same 
but way simpler to understand.

Mason plays everything tuned a 1/2 step lower.  I have too many x chromosomes so I play 
in regular tuning with a capo on the third fret.  Do what works for you.


Mason fingerpicks the whole song.  But then again, he has a bass and drummer to back him 
 I tend to strum it out.


C
Got so lost that I went to church
G
Sorry God but you made it worse
C           F
Made me sit behind a fence
C           F
Haunted by the evidence

C
I guess you donít want me to think
G
So instead Iíll dream and drink
C             F
Got too drunk to drive home
C          F
In the cab I grabbed my phone

C
And made a call I might regret
G
To a girl that I just met
C            F
Lately things are not okay
C                  F
I just wanted to hear somebody say


C                     G
If you need a reason as to why youíre here
am                                  F
You donít need to look farther than me
C                     G
If you need a reason as to why youíre here
am                                  F
You donít need to look farther than me

C
Lovely, lovely quiet lake
G
How could this be a mistake
C             F
Too dark now to see your face
C                       F
Your hair is blowing all over the place

C
The moon is caught in a frozen glass
G
I could not let this moment pass
C                F
The sun is waiting far away
C              F
Until iíve had a chance to say

C
All thatís missing, all thatís lost
G
Every hope at any cost
C                F
Every dream too good to come true
C               F
Floods my heart when Iím with you

C                     G
