Walt Grace's Submarine Test, January 1967                             
                                                                      
John Mayer

I've written out the first verse chorus, the rest pretty much repeats itself. 
There's a couple of bass lines that I haven't written down, but this should work 
for the guitar part. 



Capo 4


Intro: |: D - G/B :|


D Em Walt Grace, desperately hating his whole place
Bm Dreamed to discover a new space
GAnd buried himself alive
D EmInside his basement, tongue on the side of his face meant
BmHe's working away on displacement
Bm/A GAnd what it would take to survive
Em Em/B A 'Cause when you're done with this world
Em. Em/B A You know the next is up to you
D G AAnd his wife told his kids he was crazy
D G AAnd his friends said he'd fail if he tried
D GBut with a will to work hard
Bm EAnd a library card
G A D He took a homemade, fan-blade, one-man submarine ride
That morning the sea was mad and I mean it Waves as big as he'd seen it deep in his dreams at home From dry land, he rolled it over to wet sand Closed the hatch up with one hand And pedaled off alone 'Cause when you're done with this world You know the next is up to you And for once in his life, it was quiet As he learned how to turn in the tide And the sky was aflare when he came up for air In his homemade, fan blade, one-man submarine ride One evening, when weeks had passed since his leaving The call she planned on receiving finally made it home She accepted the news she never expected The operator connected the call from Tokyo 'Cause when you're done with this world You know the next is up to you Now his friends bring him up when they're drinking At the bar with his name on the side And they smile when they can, as they speak of the man Who took a homemade, fan blade, one-man submarine ride
