When playing the Cadd9 chord, hammer-on the D string a few times while strumming before you go back to G if you want to embellish a bit and make it sound more like the recording. Codeine by Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit (Standard Tuning) VERSE
G D Em7 Cadd9If there's one thing I can't stand

G D Em7 Cadd9If there's one thing I can't take

G D Em7 Cadd9but with you gone, this place looks bigger than it should.
G D Em7 Cadd9If there's two things that I hate
