Traffic in the Sky, performed by Jack Johnson


   D                  F#m           
    
There's traffic in the sky and it doesn't 
C                         Em
seem to be getting much better 
                       D                    F#m
There's kids playing games on the pavement Drawing waves on the 
          C
pavement Mmm hmm 
                   Em                         D
Shadows of the planes on the pavement Mmm hmm 
                         F#m
It's enough to make me cry 
                 C                              Em
But that don't seem like it will make it feel better 
               D                
Maybe it's a dream and if I scream 
          F#m
It will burst at the seams 
C                            Em
Whole place would fall into pieces 
 
                A    G# 
And then they'd say 
G                         A 
Well how could we have known 
                        D 			 
I'll tell them it's not so hard to 
Bm 
 Tell 
   G 
Nah nah nah 
              A   
You keep adding stones 
              D 
Soon the water will 
               Bm 
Be lost in the well 
G                  A 
Mmmm mmmm 
 





Verse (same as above) 
D                          F#m
And puzzle pieces in the ground 
C                       Em
No one ever seems to be digging 
                        D
Instead they're looking up towards the heavens 

            F#m                   C
With their eyes on the heavens Mmm hmmm 
                    Em                       D
The shadows on the way to the heavens Mmm hmm 
                        F#m
It's enough to make me cry 
            C                              Em
That don't seem like it will make it feel better 
                       D
The answers could be found 
                             F#m
We could learn from digging down 
   C                         Em
But no one ever seems to be digging 
                A    G#
Instead they'll say 
G                        A
Well how could we have known 
                        D           Bm
I'll tell them it's not so hard to tell 
G
Nah nah nah 
                A
You keep adding stones 
              D
Soon the water will 
               Bm           G   A
Be lost in the well Mmmm mmmm 


D                         F#m
And words of wisdom all around 
    C                     Em
But no one ever seems to listen 
                           D
They're talking about the plans on the paper 
         F#m
Building up from the pavement 
C
Mmm hmm 
                        Em
The shadows from the scrapers on the pavement 

Mmm hmm 
D                      F#m
It's enough to make me sigh 
                 C                            Em
But that don't seem like it will make it feel better 
                    D
The words are all around 
                         F#m
But the words are only sounds 
    C                     Em
And no one ever seems to listen 



                 A   G#
Instead they'll say 
G                        A
Well how could we have known 
                           D               Bm
I'll tell them it's really not so hard to tell 
G
Nah nah nah 
                 A
You keep adding stones 
                D
Soon the water will 
                Bm
Be lost in the well 
G
Lost in the well 
A
Mmmm mmmm mmmm (end on  D)
