Vultures Acoustic Tab
John Mayer - Vultures
Continuum

Tabbed by Adam D.

This is a great catchy tune off the Continuum record. The other tabs for this song are 
but this tab is for those of us without a full band behind us and play on acoustic.

* = slap the strings with your thumb
I play this song without a pick and use all fingers on my right hand. Don't be afraid to 
a nice jazz groove going on :)

T = get your thumb on that E string

Verse 1

F#m - C#m7,   F#m  - C#m7- C#m7
Some of us, We're hardly ever here
The rest of us, we're born to disappear
How do I stop myself from
Being just a number
How will I hold my head
To keep from going under

Chorus
A
Down to the wire I wanted water but
B
I'll walk through the fire If this is what it takes
A
To take me even higher Then I'll come through
B
Like I do When the world keeps
Testing me, testing me, testing me

Verse 2

How did they find me here
What do they want from me
All of these vultures hiding
Right outside my door
I hear them whisperin
They're tryin to ride it out
Cause they've never gone this long
Without a kill before

Chorus

(feel free to rock out a nice solo in C#m)

Verse 3

Wheels up
I got to leave this evening
Can't seem to shake these vultures
Off of my trail
Power is made, by power being taken
So I keep on running
To protect my situation

Chorus

(play verse/intro guitar part until fade out)
Oooooooooooo
Oooooooooooo
Oooooooooooo
Oooooooooooo
Whatcha gunna do about it
Whatcha gunna do about it
Whatcha gunna do about it

Don't give up give up
Don't give up give up give up
Don't give up give up give up

About the artist behind Vultures Acoustic Tab:

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.
