Who Needs Shelter
JASON MRAZ
WHO NEEDS SHELTER
WAITING FOR MY ROCKET TO COME

Thanks to Maitinin for teaching me the basics of the song. I've adjusted the 
chords so that they're in the right key with the capo, and fixed the intro a bit 
to sound closer to what Jason plays.

The bracketed part of the intro riff can be played as either version A or version 
B. In the intro, it sounds more like A with the other instruments playing 
alongside, but during the verses, it switches more to B. This isn't 100%, but 
should be close enough to sound good, and you can play around with it a bit to 
find what's most comfortable for you.
