Drink The Water Tab

   
Drink The Water
Jack Johnson
Tabbed by Brian Noy

The intro kind of goes like this. I know it's missing a few notes but if
you play this with the right rythm, anyone who knows the song will reconize it.

e-------------------- I've    ------------------------------
B-------------------- heard   ------------------------------
G-------------------- him do  ------9--11-----13--9--11-----
D-------------------- it live --11--9--11--9--13--9--11--9--
A--4-7-9-2-11-7-9-7-- like    --11--7--9---9--11--7--9---9--
E-------------------- this--> --9----------7-------------7--

The verses mainly go Dm, G#, F# on the Brushfire Fairytales CD. In his acoustic
version he plays a G7 real quick before switching to F#

   Drink the water...Spit it...I didn't want this
   Dm                G#    G7  F#
e---4----------------4-----3---2-----------
B---5----------------4-----3---2-----------
G---6----------------5-----4---3-----------
D---6----------------6-----3---4-----------
A---4----------------6-----5---4-----------
E---4----------------4-----3---3-----------

The chorus is played E, G#, Dm two times through and then goes into the intro
again. On an acoustic version he plays G# and A after the chorus

    To time to swim a shore
    E          G#     Dm    repeat  G# A  G#  
e---0----------4------4--------|----4--5--4-
B---0----------4------5--------|----4--5--4-
G---1----------5------6--------|----5--6--5-
D---2----------6------6--------|----6--7--6-
A---2----------6------4--------|----6--7--6-
E---0----------4------4--------|----4--5--4-

The rest of the song follows those same chord progressions
