Cocoon (By JACK JOHNSON)
 
Cocoon- Jack Johson.
tab - Rhett Smith (rhette28@yahoo.com)


special thanks to hauck1@optushome.com.au -> your tabs on reed's
website got me started.


no capo. Standard tuning.
Start the intro with your tab hand like so:[0-0-7-6-5-5],which is
an A chord (- looks like a F chord placed on the 5 fret.)
Use your index finger to cover the tabb'ing across 
the 'e' and 'B' strings. (Don't worry- it looks worse than it
is).

Verse (Main) Chord Progression 
==========================================================


A C#m D C#m Bm E


The Main tab is as follows. 


A helpful note: if you're having trouble getting through the piece as is,
work through it only pickin' the 3 highest strings. From there, work in
the 4th (D) string.  The 5th and 6th strings are not what JackyJ. plays,
they're mostly the bass line (but I tabb'ed them in to be thorough)


   A                 C#m              D       C#m      Bm

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       D              C#m     Bm
  But you're bound to win, 'coz if I'm betting against you
                   E 
I think I'd rather lose

 Bm                       E
   But this is all that I have


=============================================================
Chorus
=============================================================


Helpul note:  I use a different 'E' chord here (E: 0 7 6 4 0 0).
This is because its easier to transition to this E chord from D
instead of the  other E chord (0 2 2 1 0 0). You'll see.

  A       C#m D              E                      
So please,       take what's left of this heart and 
A         C#m D                  E
use.             Please use only what you really 
A         C#m D                  E
need.            You know I only have so little, so
A         C#m D                   E         ...[intro]
please,          mend your broken heart and leave


===============================================================
Play intro as transition

Verse 2 (Main Progression) , tab Verse 1, as above
===============================================================


I know it's not your style.
I can tell by the way you move, it's real, 
real soon.
But I'm on your side,
and I don't want to be your regret, I'd 
rather be your cocoon




================================================================
Chorus 2 (Pre-chorus progression followed by chorus 
progression), tab exactly as Chorus 1, above
================================================================


But this is all that you have.
So please, let me take what's left of 
this heart and I will use.
...I sware I'll use only what I need.
I know you only have so little,
so please, let me mend my broken heart and...

E|--------------|-4-----44----4|-------------|--------||


 You said this was all you have  and it's all I 
need but blah blah blah because it fell apart 
and. I guess it's all you knew and all I 
have but now we have only confused 
hearts I guess all we have is really all we 
need


==================================================================
Chorus 3 (Chorus progression (w/ pre-chorus))
==================================================================


So please,
lets take what's left of these 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.
