Standard Tuning



The chords used:
     Dm      F       Bb     C     C#5    A      Fm     B5
E-----5------1---------------------------5-------1---------------|
B-----6------1---------------------------5-------1---------------|
G-----7------2-------3------5------6-----6-------1------4--------|
D-----7------3-------3------5------6-----7-------3------4--------|
A-----5------3-------1------3------4-----7-------3------2--------|
E------------1---------------------------5-------1---------------|

 NOTE: For the Dm chord you may use the basic chord in the first position
but Jack Johnson plays it in the fifth position. 
           The x is in the place where he mutes/chops the strings.

So the song in tablature goes like this:
INTRO/VERSE:
   Dm                     F                   Bb
E--5--5-x---5---5-5---x---1--1-x---1---1-1-x--------x---------x-

D-----3--3-x----3----3-3----x----5-------*--|
A-----3--3-x----3----3-3----x----3----------|
E-----1--1-x----1----1-1----x---------------|

this
