Xo
These are the chords for John Mayer's cover of Beyonce's XO that he played in Adelaide, South Australia
on the 15th of April 2014. I was there and it was amazing. 

Here is a link to a YouTube video of it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JVH6OkUT7Dc

I worked this out from my recording of it and the YouTube video

Tuning: Standard, Capo 2nd

These are the chords used, pretty much just mix it up by hammering on the B 
string from open to 1st throughout.

I'm not sure about the proper name for the chords but they are all relative to the Capo

    C              G            Am  (or C6?) 
e|--3---|      e|--3--|     e|---3--|        
B|--1---|      B|--1--|     B|---1--|
G|--0---|      G|--0--|     G|---2--|
D|--2---|      D|--0--|     D|---2--|
A|--3---|      A|--2--|     A|---0--|
E|------|      E|--3--|     E|------|

They're just hopelessly gazing

Oh baby, take me, take me
                              C
Before they turn the lights out

Before our time has run out

Baby, love me lights out

[Chorus]

I'll search through the crowd 
             G
Your face is all that I see

Your face is all that I see

You can turn my lights out

End on C


The timing of the chords might be slightly off but it's so easy you should be able to work it out 
pretty quickly!

Cheers,

Brenton

About the artist behind Xo:

John Clayton Mayer (surname pronunciation: /ˈmeɪ.jɜr/[1]) (born October 16, 1977) is an American singer-songwriter. Originally from Connecticut, he attended Berklee College of Music before moving to Atlanta, Georgia, in 1998, where he refined his skills and gained a following. His first two studio albums, Room for Squares and Heavier Things, did well commercially, achieving multi-platinum status. In 2003, he won a Best Male Pop Vocal Performance Grammy for "Your Body Is a Wonderland".

Mayer began his career performing mainly acoustic rock and pop, but gradually began a transition towards the blues genre in 2005 by collaborating with renowned blues artists such as B. B. King and Eric Clapton, and by forming the John Mayer Trio. The blues influence can be heard on his album Continuum, released in September 2006. At the 49th Annual Grammy Awards in 2007 Mayer won Best Pop Vocal Album for Continuum and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for "Waiting on the World to Change". Mayer's career pursuits have extended to stand-up comedy, design, and writing; he has written pieces for magazines, most notably for Esquire. He is also involved in philanthropic activities through his "Back to You" fund and his concern over global warming.
