No Other Way by Jack Johnson

Tabbed by Jordan Cosulich (j_cosulich@hotmail.com, This tab is
all my own work. Comments and corrections welcome.)

Tabbed from the In Between Dreams album.  Haven't seen a video so I
don't know if it's how Jack plays it but it sounds almost
perfect when played with the CD.  Listen to the CD for timing.

Dropped  D tuning. Capo on 3rd fret; all notes are not relative
to the capo, (eg. 5 is 5th fret, 3 is capo'd fret and is thus
played as an open string) 

Intro:
|E-----------------------------------|
|B--6h8-6h8-6----6-6h8-6h8-6--6---6--|
|G-------------7-----------------7---|
|D-----------------------------------|

|E---------------------------------|
|B---------------------------------|
|G-------------------5-------------|
|D--8/10-8-------5/7---7-3-3-------|
|A---------8-8---------------------| -->i play these 8's in place
|D----------3-3-----------3-3------|    of the usual 3's so the
                                        8 on the higher D string can
                                        ring through
|E---------------------------------|
|B---------------------------------|
|G-------10-----------5------------|
|D--8/10----3-3---5/7---7-3-3------|
|A---------------------------------|
|D-----------3-3-----------3-------| 

Verse:

|E--------------------------------------|
|B--------------------------------------|
|G--------------------------------------|
|D-----7---7---7/5-3-5*--8---8---8------| *Jack doesn't play this note
|A---8---8---8---------8---8---8---8-8--|  note but i like to add it
|D--3-3---3---3-------8-8---8---8---8---|  in just to keep the rhythm

|E--------------------------------------|
|B--------------------------------------|
|G--------------------------------------|
|D-----5---5---5---------8---8---8------|
|A---5---5---5---5-----8---8---8---8-8--|
|D--5-5---5---5---5/8-8-8---8---8---8---|

Chorus:

|B--------------------------|
|G--------------------------| X3
|D-----7---------10-----8---|
|A---8---8-8---10--10--8-8--|
|D--3-3---3--10-------8-----|

|E--------------------------------------|
|B--------------------------------------|
|G--------------------------------------|
|D-----5---5---5---------8---8---8------|
|A---5---5---5---5-----8---8---8---8-8--|
|D--5-5---5---5---5/8-8-8---8---8---8---|

Outro:

|E---------------------------------|
|B---------------------------------|
|G-------------------5-------------|
|D--8/10-8-------5/7---7-3-3-------|
|A---------8-8---------------------|
|D----------3-3-----------3-3------| 

|E---------------------------------|
|B---------------------------------|
|G-------10-----------5------------|
|D--8/10----3-3---5/7---7-3-3------|
|A---------------------------------|
|D-----------3-3-----------3-3-----|

Repeat outro one more time and thats it!

There is a solo that is played intermittently
over the chorus and verse but it is quite simple
and so I have not tabbed it here. I may add it in
the future.
Enjoy!

Drop D tuning, Capo on the 2nd fret
all the numbers are RELATIVE TO THE CAPO; so 7 = 9 , 5 = 7 etc.

Intro -
> = slide
p = pull off

I am sure this is correct, the tricky part is sliding back down from 7 to 4 with your first finger and
then pulling it off

E|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------7--------------------------------0---------------------------|
D|---7>9---------------7>4p0----------7>9------------7>4p0------------|
A|-----------------7>9---------------------------7>9------------------|
D|-0-----------0-------------------0-----------0----------------------|

Verse -

the finger picking on this is different depending on what recording you listen to, I tabbed the one that makes
the most sense with the lyrics. It is simplified a little. Hold the 4., 5., 2., for half a beat longer.

When your mind is a mess.... ....There's waves that can break

Lyrics.

When your mind is a mess
So is mine
I cant sleep
Cause it hurts when I think
My thoughts aren't at peace
With the plans that we make
Chances we take
They're, not yours and not mine
There's waves that can break
All the words that we say
And the words that we mean
Words can fall short
Can't see the unseen
Cause the world is awake
For somebody's sake now, please close your eyes woman
Please get some sleep

And know that if I knew
All of the answers I would
Not hold them from you'd
Know all the things that I'd know
We told each other, there is no other way

Well too much silence can be misleading
You're drifting I can hear it in the way that your breathing
We don't really need to find reason
Cause out the same door that it came well its leaving its leaving
Leaving like a day that's done and part of a season
Resolve is just a concept that's as dead as the leaves
But at least we can sleep, its all that we need
When we wake we will find
Our minds will be free to go to sleep

And know that if I knew
All of the answers I would
Not hold them from you'd
Know all the things that I'd know
We told each other, there is no other way
