This is my first time posting a tab.  Hopefully I do it right, but if I didn't go
ahead and e-mail me and tell me what I did wrongor how I can improve.  I appreciate
constructive criticism.  
   This is one of my favorite Mraz songs.  Its off the Live at Java Joe's album.
Its in standard tuning (EADGBE) and repeats almost the same chord progression the
entire song.  Here goes nothing.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Each section of music (eg. e|---x--|) is two bars long.
/=slide

The intro starts with a simple slide up then back down the D string.
Listen to the song for timing.

Intro riff(x4)
e|---0----0----0---0---0--|
B|---0----0----0---0---0--|
G|---x----x----x---x---x--|
D|---2/4--4/6--6---4---2--|
A|---x----x----x---x---x--|
E|---0----0----0---0---0--|

Pick on the A string on the 2nd fret, then the open E string.

End of intro(x4)
e|---0------0----|
B|---0------0----|
G|---x------x----|
D|---2------2----|
A|---x---2--x----|
E|---0------0----|

Next, this is where the singing comes in with "Hands in line, Arms closed"

e|---0------0---|---x--|---x--|---x--|---x--|
B|---0------0---|---4--|---5--|---x--|---x--|

A|---x---2--x---|---x--|---4--|---2--|---0--|
E|---0------0---|---4--|---x--|---x--|---x--|

Next, this is where the lyrics start with "And I'm taking empty"

e|---0----0----0---0---0--|---x--|---x--|---x--|---x--|

Next, the lyrics start with "My hands are high"

e|---x--|---x--|---x--|---x--|
B|---4--|---5--|---x--|---x--|
G|---4--|---4--|---4--|---2--|
D|---4--|---x--|---4--|---2--|
A|---x--|---4--|---2--|---0--|
E|---4--|---x--|---x--|---x--|

Next, before the lyrics come in theres a four bar section.

e|---0----0----0---0---0--|---x--|
B|---0----0----0---0---0--|---4--|
G|---x----x----x---x---x--|---4--|
D|---2/4--4/6--6---4---2--|---4--|
A|---x----x----x---x---x--|---x--|
E|---0----0----0---0---0--|---4--|

Next, the lyrics start with "Quality is what you see now".  Repeat four times.
On the second two times allow the first chord to ring out during the "Bong, bong, bong."

e|---x--|---x--|
B|---5--|---4--|
G|---4--|---4--|
D|---x--|---4--|

Repeat the last two phrases.

Next, at "And I'm wakin empty"

A|---x----x----x---x---x--|---x--|---4--|---2--|---0--|
E|---0----0----0---0---0--|---4--|---x--|---x--|---x--|

Then to end the song after "And I unfold," play this twice.

e|---0----0----0---0---0--|
B|---0----0----0---0---0--|
G|---x----x----x---x---x--|
D|---2/4--4/6--6---4---2--|
