Be Honest

                             Be Honest - Jason Mraz
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Kadas
E-mail: [email protected]

Tuning: Standard

This tab is about 90+% correct... The intro is much like the original song, while 
the one before the ref is the one from the acoustic version....

***Important Note: most of the tabs usually include the intro. Always make the intro a reference on some parts
of the song

[Verse 1]

   DM7            DM7/B        CM7/C#   F#7
Ok go, go hang your heart on, any tree, 
         Bm                        Em
You can make yourself available to anybody, 
       Bm                           CM7/C#    F#7
Cause every livin' person knows you are a prize,
    Bm                       Em 
Whichever way you go I'll be easy to find, 
        Em                    A2            DM7-DM7b
I don't ask for much, just be honest, with me

Think of this song as a promise you can do what you want, 
          Bm                        Em
If you decide you wanna move into a new stage, 
   Bm                          CM7/C#       F#7
Deleting me from pages in your mission statement, 
    Bm                    Em
My love is unconditional, make no mistake, 
         Em                   A2              DM7-DM7/B
I don't ask for much, just be honest, with me, 
         Em                   A2              
I don't ask for much, just be honest, with me

[Chorus] (Play with the intro as long as you end with the ending)
Who we are, when love is what it wants to be, 
We are free, and we are, having the best day ever by far, 
Being treated to the light, like a superstar

I can hold space while you see what your heart has to say about me,
             Bm                            Em
There's no dotted line to sign away your freedom,
      Bm                             Cm7/C#       F#7
