Jack Johnson – Flake

This video is requested from GuitarTutee.
Standard Tuning:


Dm F
I know she said it’s alright
A# F
But you can make it up next time
Dm F
I know she said knows it’s not right
A# F
There ain’t no use in Lying
Dm F
Maybe she thinks I know something
A# F
Maybe maybe she thinks it’s fine
Dm F
Maybe she knows something I don’t I’m so,
A# C
I’m so tired, I’m so tired of trying

It seems to me that maybe
Dm Ab
It pretty much always means no
A# C F C
So don’t tell me you might just let it go
And often times we’re lazy
Dm Ab
It seems to stand in my way
A# C F C
Cause no one no not no one wants to be let down

(Guitar quiet)
Dm F
I know she loves the sunrise
A# F
no longer sees it with her sleeping eyes
Dm F
And I know that when she said she’s gonna try
A# F
Well it might not work because of other ties
And I wouldn’t want to break ’em, nah,
I wouldn’t want to break em

(Guitar loud again)
A# F
Maybe she’ll help me to untie this but
Dm C
Until then well, I’m gonna have to lie to her

Then he starts to sing:
Fm, Fm, Fm, C5, Fm, Bb, Fm, C, Fm

    Nice Video iss helping me a lot
    continue the good work
    (try improving the sound quality its a bit noisy)

  2. Nice playing, but what version is this? I’ve just checked out a bunch of videos of Jack playing live and I havent come across this one. (I agree w. last comment too – noisy, time for a new guitar?)

  3. Isnt the last line “going to have to lie too”? not “to her”

  4. yea i believe it is

  5. May I quote your post on my website http://www.suma-add.de ? Tha would be sweet!
