Tabbed byBreAnn S
TuningStandard
Capo2nd Fret
From her live performance on 6/14/04
Standard Tuning, Capo @ 2, 4/4 Time, Quarter Note = ~66-76
                                     (metronomeonline.com)
Notes:
	-Just as with any new Jewel song, 
	 her lyrics and chords may tend to vary.
	 This tab is from the above performance.
	-You can find alternate lyrics at 
	 www.jewelwiki.com  
	-I'm pretty sure that she uses a pick
	 on this whole song, but the intro is 
	 tabbed because well, that's how she
	 emphasizes notes in the intro. 
	-When picking, she tends to also palm-	
	 mute while upwards strumming on the 
	 pre-chorus
	-I had to give some chords alternate 
	 names to eliminate confusion...she 
	 uses several F chords as well as C
	 chords in this song

Verse 1:

C                       F*                    Am
   In my younger years,    cried all my tears

     G                
In darkness all alone

C                               F*
   Uncertainty in the air, electricity everywhere

Am                            G           FMaj7   C
   Tempers waiting to flare, waiting to explode

(tap, tap, tap)

Pre-Chorus:

                Am                  D/F#
It was like a dream but I could not wake

                   F* 
I was drowning beneath the wake

        G
Of the hope I would find my 

Chorus:

  C           G
Place in the sun

     Em          F*
My place in the sun

     C           G
My place in the sun

         FMaj7   C    C/B   C   (tap, tap)
Just for me

Verse 2:

C                     F*
   Moved into my car,    it may not go very far

Am                            G
   But I found the spotlight,   it did not warm my soul

C
And you people let me in your living rooms

F*
   And you listened to my simple tunes

Am                        G               FMaj7    C
   Just like me, people needed words for company 

Pre-Chorus:

                   Am             D/F#
But I thought I'd find a kind of world

           F*                       G
Beyond my own with people who were just as alone

      G
And trying to find their

Chorus:

  C           G
Place in the sun

        F*
Their place in the sun

        C           G
Their place in the sun

          FMaj7
Just for beauty

Bridge:

F* 
Now I'm on the other side

CMaj7
Of this crazy kind of life

F*                                   CMaj7
I've found fame, fortune, heartache, poverty

                   F*
And I can see that everything really feels the same

CMaj7
Until you're happy with your own name

  D/F#
I don't gotta fight, I'm gonna be all right

Tag:

              FMaj7 (tap, tap, tap)   CMaj7 (tap, tap, tap)
I've found my place             in the sun

   FMaj7 (tap, tap, tap)       CMaj7  (tap, tap, tap)
My place                in the sun

   FMaj7         G
My place in the sun

     Em          F*
My place in the sun

C    G    Em                  F*    
Myyyyyyyyyyyyy  place in the sun    

CMaj7
Oh......
