                                    (metronomeonline.com)
Notes:
	- Jewel fingerpicks this song, but you can use a pick if 
          if you like it better
	- Fingerpicking tab samples will be notated below the 
          "chords" section of this tab 
	- For ease of playing, only the chords will be fully tabbed,
          but the fingerpicking parts not tabbed basically follow
          the form of the samples for the rest of the song. 
	- Yes, I know that the "pre-chorus" is really just still
          part of the verses, but it's the easiest way to 
          explain the chord changes there... lol.	
        - Jewel DOES NOT play the Tag live solo usually, but I like it, 
          so I'm puttin' it on here. 
	- It IS going to be a good day, dammit!  Play and believe.

Verse 1:
I say to myself:
  C                 Cmaj9                      Am
"Self, why are you awake again?" It's one a.m.
                                 G
Standing at the fridge wide-open,  staring
                            C
Such a sight, fluorescent light, the stars are bright
        Cmaj9                            Am
I might make a wish, if I believed in that shit
                         G
But, as it is, I might watch TV
Cause it's nice to see 
Pre-Chorus:
                   D           D*  Csus2
People more messed up than me
            D    D*  Csus2
I say to myself, 
                    D   D*  Csus2
As I smile at the wall
            D    D*  Csus2
Let myself fall
Chorus:
(Csus2)         G         
"It's gonna be all right,
           D
No matter what they say
                 C
It's gonna be a good day
 C             D
Just wait and see
               G
It's gonna be all right
                D
Cause I'm all right with me
          C           
It's gonna be, it's gonna be
       D            D 
It's gotta be..."
Verse 2:
  C                           Cmaj9
     I shiver, shut the door
                                  Am
Can't think standing here no more
                               G
I'm alone, my mind's racing, heart breaking
  (G)                               C
Can you be everything I need you to be
                            Cmaj9
Can you protect me like a daughter
                         Am
Can you love me like a father
                        G
Can you drink me like water
Pre-Chorus:
                         D       D*      Csus2
Say I'm like the desert,        just way hotter
                 D   D*  Csus2
The point of it all
                     D    D*  Csus2
Is that if I should fall
                      D   D*  Csus2
Still your name I'll call
Chorus:
(Csus2)         G
"It's gonna be all right,
           D
No matter what they say,
             C
Gonna be a good day
 C             D
Just wait and see
                G
It's gonna be okay
            D
Cause I'm okay with me
           C
It's gonna be, it's gonna be
     D
As long as we ...
Bridge:
            A
Laugh out loud
                      C
And laugh like we're mad
                   G                            D
Cause this crazy mixed up beauty's all that we have
                Am                           C
Because what's love, but an itch we can't scratch
                  G               D
A joke we can't catch, God, but still we laugh
Verse 3: 1/2 as long
 G                    D/F#add4  
Get back in bed, turn    off    the TV
                 C                            D
You say, "It'll be okay, baby, just wait and see"
Chorus:
               G         D                    C   D
It's gonna be all right,      it's gonna be okay
                 G    D                   C                  D
It's gonna be a all right, just wait and see (Just wait and see)
               G                     D
It's gonna be all right, no matter what they say
            C                    D      
Gonna be a good day, just wait,    just see
          G                D
Gonna be okay, cause I'm okay with me
           C
It's gonna be, It's gonna be, 
           D    G    D   C   D   G   D  C  D
It's gotta be okay
Tag:
  G    D                   C
Uh-oh,    I'm awake again.    It's one a.m.
D              
  Staring, such a sight,
G       D                          Csus2
  Well,    at least the stars are bright.
