                             THE REMEDY - Jason Mraz
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Krista

Tuning: Capo On 3rd

   Em  Am  C   G   D   Bm
e|-0---0---0---3---2---2-|
B|-0---1---1---3---3---3-|
G|-0---2---0---0---2---4-|
D|-2---2---2---0---0---4-|
A|-2---0---3---2---x---2-|
E|-0---x---x---3---x---2-|

I can't believe this has such a poor rating. It's supposed to be acoustic!
I know it's not how Jason plays it, but I've seen how he plays it
and I've looked at the other tabs that are correct...
FYI: These are the exact same chords, it's just in a different key!
I made it this way because when he plays it he uses all barred chords
which is kind of difficult for some people. These are the same chords,
I just transposed it into a different key.
(He plays Gm Cm F Bb which believe it or not is capo on 3rd Em Am D G)


Em C G D Bm C G D x2


      Em                 Am
I saw fireworks from the freeway
      D                         G
And behind closed eyes I cannot make them go away
               Em                      Am
Cause you were born on the fourth of july, freedom ring 
     D                           G
Well something on the surface it stinks
       Em                                Am
I said something on the surface, well it kind of makes me nervous
    D                                   G
Who says that you deserve this and what kind of god would serve this?
        Em              Am
We will cure this dirty old disease
        D
Well if you've got the poison I've got the remedy
 

    Em            Am
The remedy is the experience
          D           G
This is a dangerous liaison
          Em                 Am
I say the comedy is that its serious
          D                  G
This is a strange enough new play on words
          Em                       Am
I say the tragedy is how you're gonna spend
    D                             G
The rest of your nights with the light on
             Em                   Am
So shine the light on all of your friends
        D
Well it all amounts to nothing in the end.
 

G C D                 Em   Bm    C     D
I--- I wont worry my life away. Hey, oh oh.
G C D                 Em   Bm    C     D
I--- I wont worry my life away. Hey, oh oh.

Em C G D Bm C G D

        Em                     Am
I heard two men talking on the radio
     D                        G
In a cross fire kind of new reality show
  Em                            Am
Uncovering the ways to plan the next big attack 
          D                                  G
They were counting down the days to stab the brother in the
         Em                      Am
Be right back after this, the unavoidable kiss, 
          D                           G
Where the minty fresh death breath is sure to outlast
        Em        Am
This catastrophy, dance with me
           D
Because if you've got the poison, I've got the remedy 

 
    Em            Am
The remedy is the experience
          D           G
This is a dangerous liaison
          Em                 Am
I say the comedy is that its serious
          D                  G
This is a strange enough new play on words
          Em                       Am
I say the tragedy is how you're gonna spend
    D                             G
The rest of your nights with the light on
             Em                   Am
So shine the light on all of your friends
        D
Well it all amounts to nothing in the end.
 

G C D                 Em   Bm    C     D
I--- I wont worry my life away. Hey, oh oh.
G C D                 Em   Bm    C     D
I--- I wont worry my life away. Hey, oh oh.
 

Em              C              G
 When I fall in love I take my time
                    D
 There's no need to hurry when I'm making up my mind
Em                    C                       G                       D
 You can turn off the sun but I'm still gonna shine and I'll tell you why


(play G throughout)
Because the remedy is the experience.
This a dangerous liaison
I say the comedy is that its serious.
This is a strange enough new play on words
I say the tragedy is how you're gonna spend
The rest of your nights with the light on
So shine the light on all of your friends
Because it all amounts to nothing in the end.
 

G C D                 Em   Bm    C     D
I--- I wont worry my life away. Hey, oh oh.
G C D                 Em   Bm    C     D
I--- I wont worry my life away. Hey, oh oh.

(Repeat chorus chords with similar lyrics,
I won't, I won't, I won't, worry my life away, etc.)

End on Em or G.
