Title: “Flake”
Album: Brushfire Fairytales”
tabbed by Roy Uno ([email protected])
I saw D.Yamaki’s version of the tab. It was good, but it was somewhat confusing,
so I thought I’d make it more easy to understand. Unfortunately, I don’t know the
slide guitar part melody for the interlude, so if anyone figures it out before me,
then please e-mail me.
I tried to show the strumming pattern as well as I could but, Listen to the song for
the strumming pattern.
The chords used:
Dm F Bb C5 A Fm C#5 B5
E-----5------1---------------------5-------1-------------------|
B-----6------1---------------------5-------1-------------------|
G-----7------2-------3------5------6-------1------6-----4------|
D-----7------3-------3------5------7-------3------6-----4------|
A-----5------3-------1------3------7-------3------4-----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:

The song with the lyrics goes like this:
INTRO:
Dm, F, Bb, F
Dm F
I know she said it's alright
Bb F
But you can make it up next time
Dm F
I know she said it's not right
Bb F
There ain't no use in Lying
Dm F
Maybe she thinks I know something
Bb F
Maybe maybe she thinks it's fine
Dm F
Maybe she knows something I don't I'm so,
Bb B5 C5
I'm so tired, I'm so tired of trying
CHORUS:
F C5 C#5
It seems to me that maybe
Dm A
It pretty much always means no
Bb C#5 C5 F Bb C
So don't tell me you might just let it go
F C
And often times we're lazy
Dm A
It seems to stand in my way
Bb B C5 F Bb C
Cause no one no not no one wants to be let down
VERSE:
Dm F
I know she loves the sunrise
Bb F
no longer sees it with her sleeping eyes
Dm F
And I know that when she said she's gonna try
Bb F
Well it might not work because of other ties
Dm F
And I wouldn't want to break 'em, nah,
Bb
I wouldn't want to break em
Dm F
Maybe she'll help me to untie this but
Bb B5 C5
Until then well, I'm gonna have to lie to her
CHORUS:
F C5 C#5
It seems to me that maybe
Dm A
It pretty much always means no
Bb C#5 C5 F Bb C
So don't tell me you might just let it go
F C
And often times we're lazy
Dm A
It seems to stand in my way
Bb B C5 F Bb C
Cause no one no not no one wants to be let down
CHORUS:
F C5 C#5
It seems to me that maybe
Dm A
It pretty much always means no
Bb C#5 C5 F Bb C
So don't tell me you might just let it go
F C
And often times we're lazy
Dm A
It seems to stand in my way
Bb B C5 F Bb C
Cause no one no not no one wants to be let down
INTERLUDE:
