Artist: John Mayer
Album: Paradise Valley
Song: Badge and Gun

Standard Tuning



Intro: D

Give me my badge and gun
              G             D
Give me the road that I may run
              D                                   A7
Give me that peaceful, wandering free I used to know
I've waited all I can
              G            E7
But I'm just not a patient man
               D               D      A7      D    
And I've been hiding here for seven months or so

Hand me down my coat and hat
And grab the winter one at that
     G                           A7
You never know how long I'll be away

Give me my badge and gun
             G                D
Give me the songs that I once sung
Give me those jet-black, kick-back, lay down nights alone
This house is safe and warm
           G                 E7
But I was made to chase the storm
            D                   D      A7     D
Taking the whole world on with big ol' empty arms

Tell my friends I tried my best
That one day I just up and left
       G                      A7
They probably saw it coming anyway

What can I say

Hey, hey

(Instrumental): D G D A7   D G E7 D A7 D

The lock is on the cellar door
I can't remember what it's for
    G                                    A7
I ain't been down those stairs in oh so long
So, so long

(Instrumental): D

Give me my badge and gun
            G               D
Give me the road that I must run
              D                                  A7
Give me that peaceful, wandering free I used to know
      D                          G              E7
The copy of your key is hanging where it used to be
                D            A7
Good as you've always been to me
     D              A7
The life I need to lead
     D                   A7                  D      G     D
Is somewhere out there, callin' over those hills

About the artist behind Badge And Gun Chords:

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.
