Spring Wind by Greg Brown from Dream Café
Covered by Jack Johnson

Update from Oliver: The chords to this song are correct but I am sure that Jack plays them open with a capo on 2.

Tabbed by Don Taylor

Intro : D  G  D  G  D  G

D                 G

All my friends are getting older

A               Bm

I guess I must be too

G

But without their love and kindness I

A

I don’t know what I’d do

G                     D

Oh the wine bottles half empty

A                     Bm

The money’s all been spent

G

We’re a cross between our parents and

A

Hippies in a tent

Chorus

G                      D      A

Oh love calls just like the wild birds

Bm

Just another day

G

A spring wind blew my list of

C            D

Things to do away

G  D  G  D  G  D  G

D                  G

In a mucked up lovely river

A                Bm

I cast my little fly

G

But I look at that river and I smell it and

A

It makes me want to cry

G                 D

Oh to clean our dirty planet

A             Bm

There’s a noble wish

G

And I put my shoulder to the wheel

A

Cause I want to catch some fish

Chorus

G                          D      A

Oh love calls just like the wild birds

Bm

Just another day

G

A spring wind blew my list of

C          D

Things to do away

Jack plays this song along with the Plastic Jesus/Fall Line Medley. This version is from the 8-23-03 show at the Gorge Amphitheatre in George, WA. I was lucky enough to be at this show and hear him perform. After he finished this song he told the crowd that the bass player (Merlo) was locked in the tour bus and they were trying to get him out. Jack then played Losing Hope, after which Merlo and Adam finally came out and played a reggae style version of It’s All Understood.
