Jack Johnson tabs

Cocoon guitar tab

Here is my tab for Jack's song "Cacoon" off the new album.For the exact
finger-picking tabs, check a bit further down. What I put first are the
lyrics along with the chord names to go along to help give a clear idea
of the song's structure.  Hope this helps.

Intro

A . . .   x4



Verse

A                     C#m

...Well, based on your smile

D           C#m      Bm               E

I'm betting all of this might be over soon

A                       C#m

...But you're bound to win

      D              C#m      Bm                       E

Cause if I'm betting against you, I think I'd rather lose



Pre-Chorus

Bm                        E

...But this is all that I have so,

Chorus

A    G#    D              E

Please....... take what's left of this heart and

A    G#    D                  E

Use.......... please use only what you really

A    G#    D                  E

Need......... you know I only have so little so,

A    G#    D            E                   A (start intro)

Please....... mend your broken heart and... leave.


I know its not your style
I can tell by the way that you move... it's real, real smooth
But I'm on your side
And I don't wanna be your regret, I'd rather be your caccoon

But this is all that you have, so:

Please: let me take whats left of your heart and I will:
Use: I swear I'll use only what I:
Need: I know you only have so little so
Please: let me mend my broken heart and:



Bridge

A

...You said this was all you had

C#m

...And its all I need

F#m

...but, blah blah blah

D

...because it fell apart, and


I guess its all you knew
And all I have
But now we have
Only confused hearts, and
I guess all we have is really all we need, so
Please: let's take these broken hearts and
Use: let's use only what we really
Need: you know we only have so little, so
Please: take these broken hearts and leave.

-This is the only part I'm not totally sure about.  I'm fairly certain these are the exact notes, but I'm not sure if this is how Jack plays it.
Personally, when I play it I just mess around with A and make sure to alternate the bass note (from A to E).
