Hey Ya Chords

Hey Ya covered by Mat Weddle of Obadiah Parker
Transcribed by:
Standard Tuning: EADGBe

I tried to tab this song just by watching the video on YouTube 
( and the low quality made
it hard to see or hear what the G-like chord really is but I gave it my
best shot. E-Mail any corrections. PS, this is my first tab.


Chords Used:  (I personally think that the first G sounds better but in the
video it looks like he's playing the second G so you can decide).

    C              Am             G*     OR      G

               ^When he goes from the C to the Am, hammer on the 2nd fret G string)

[Verse One:]
C             Am
My baby don't mess around

Because she loves me so
           G        Am
And this I know for sure...
C                Am
Uh, But does she really wanna

But can't stand to see me
     G       Am
Walk out the door...
C            Am
Can't stand to fight the feelin'
                                     G         Am
Because the thought alone is killing me right now...
C                 Am
Thank god for mom and dad

For sticking two together
          G          Am
'Cause we don't know how...

[ Tab from: ]
C      Am
Hey... Ya...
G   C
Hey Ya...

[Verse Two:]
You think you've got it
Ohh, you think you've got it

But got it just don't get it
              G          Am
Till' there's nothing at all..
We get together
Oh, we get together
                                          G        Am
But seperate's always better when there's feelings involved
C                   Am
If what they say is "Nothing is forever"
     G                Am
Then what makes, Then what makes, Then what makes

Then what makes, then what makes, Love the exception
C           Am
So why you, why you

Why you, why you, why you are we so in denial
        G                    Am
When we know we're not happy heeeerrreeee...


C           Am
Alright now fellas
                       G     C
Now what's cooler than bein' cool?
I can't hear ya' now
             G                 C
I say what's cooler than bein' cool?

Now alright (repeats multiple times, just play verse chords)
    C    Am                                              G       Am
Now ladies, yeah we're gonna bring it down in just a few seconds here
C             Am
Don't make me bring it down for nothin'
I wanna see you on y'all's baddest behavior
Am G
   Lend me some sugar
Am C
I am your neighbor

Shake it, shake it like a Polaroid Picture (Multiple times+scratches and the first chord of every change)
