          Here is one of the best songs off of Maroon.  It's really fun to play, too; very up-tempo.   
          This is also my first tab, so I would greatly appreciate some feedback.  Thanks!

INTRO: G Cadd9 x 4 VERSE 1: G Cadd9 Well let me tell you if you're feeling alone, G Cadd9 Instead of whining and moaning, G Cadd9 G Cadd9 Just get on the phone, tell her you're coming home Riff 1 If you need her, you should be there VERSE 2: G Cadd9 G Cadd9 And if you scream in your sleep, or collapse in a heap G Cadd9 G Cadd9 And spontaneously weep then you know you're in deep Riff 2 If you need her, you should be there G Cadd9 G Go Home. CHORUS 1: Riff 3 There's nothing better than affairs of the heart G G/F# Em To make you feel so good then tear you appart Riff 3 G Cadd9 G Cadd9 Make up your mind and stick it out or start again.

CHORUS 2: Riff 3 If you think of her as Joan of Arc G G/F# Em Em7 She's burning for you, get your car out of park Riff 3 If you think of her as Catherine the Great G G/F# Em Em7 Then you should be the horse to help her meet her fate Riff 4 If you need her, you should be there, G Cadd9 G Bm Go Home.

VERSE 5: G Cadd9 Well now you're thinking that it's over at last, G Cadd9 All your woes in the past G Cadd9 G Cadd9 But you've got to be fast; put your foot on the gas Riff 1 If you need her, you should be there VERSE 6: G Cadd9 So now you're out from under the gun, G Cadd9 And it's over and done G Cadd9 G Cadd9 I won't spoil all the fun but if you ever wonder Riff 2 She'll be there if you need her G Cadd9 G Go Home. CHORUS 3: Riff 3 If you're lucky to be one of the few G G/F# Em Em7 To find somebody who can tolerate you Riff 3 Then I shouldn't have to tell you again G G/F# Em Em7 Just pack your bags and get yourself on a plane Riff 4 If you need her, you should be there, G G/F# Em Em7 Go Home........C'mon man, Riff 2 If you need her, you should be there, G Cadd9 G Cadd9 G Cadd9 G D/F# G Go Hoooooooome...
