Cookie Jar by Jack Johnson

 

Tabbed by Reed Gallogly

F#M to C#m with a little B or B9(?) tossed in at some points.

The flow is like this

 F#M               C#m                         Bm9?           C#m

I don't think you play the high E string during most of the song,
especially on the Bm chord. Anyway, there is a little intro riff
I'm still fiddling with, but it goes just like this, if I'm right.

Lyrics are below

And I would turn on the TV
but its so embarrassing
to see all the other people
I don't know what they mean
and it was magic at first
when they spoke without sound
but now this worlds gonna hurt
you better turn that thing down
turn it around

well it wasn't me says the boy with the gun
sure I pulled the trigger but it needed to be done
because life's been killing me ever since
ever since it begun
you can't blame me cause I'm too young

well you can't blame me,
sure the killer was my son
but I didn't teach him to pull the trigger of the gun
its the killing on the TV screen
you can't blame me
its those images he sees

well you can't blame me says the media man
well I wasn't the one who came up with the plan
and I just point my camera at what the people wanna see
man its a two way mirror and you can't blame me

you can't blame me says the singer of the song
and the maker of the movie which he based his life on
its only entertainment as anyone can see
its smoke machines and makeup man
you can't fool me

it was you, it was me, it was every man
we've all got the blood on our hands
we only receive what we demand
if we want hell then hell is what we'll have


And I would turn on the TV
but its so embarrassing
to see all the other people
i don't know what they mean
and it was magic at first
when they spoke without sound
but now this worlds gonna hurt
you better turn it around
turn it around
