  		Jason Mraz - Dead End 
From track 1 of Selections for Friends "Welcome To Schubas The EMinor EP in FSharp" 

Mraz uses four basic jazz chords for most of the song: 
F#m7  2x42x0 
E/F#  x9799x 
D7    x5x45x during verse  or  x5453x during breakdown 
C#7   x4342x 

I didn't take time to mark out where they all land during the verse, but they're played  
that order throughout. 

There is also: 
F# 244322 
E  x7999x 

Intro/verse chords: 
e------0---------0----------------------------------------------|

G------2----9----2-----9-------4---4-----4----------------------| 
D------4----7----4-----7-------x---x-----3----------------------| 
A------x--9-9----x---9-9---5-5---5---4-4-4--0h2h4p2p0-----------| 
E--2-2-2-------2-2------------------------------------4---------| 

Verse 1: 
say easily with me well i show affection 
but it's creeping up creeping up on me in another direction 
i love a ride and i know someday Iím gonna buy it so i try to ask no questions 
but the weary one is often me well do you think it's obsession 

Breakdown: 
D7                        C7                       D7 
the smoke will find you a choker that matches your coat 
              C7 
not fit to be tied 
    D7                     C7 
the mirror it makes it all clearer 
             D7                     C7 
as you stand alone and can see your behind 
(scat) 

Verse 2: 
well they tried it and they like to say nobody would believe this 
yes you tried it and you liked it but nobody could ever conceive of it 
the way you stayed up locked away up keeping the flame for yourself 
the way you played it out pushing the blame of reaping the fame for yourself 

Bridge: 
F#m7                       E/F# 
oh, it's a it's a dead end itís ts ts ts ts ts dead end day 
D7           C7 
it's a dead, a lonely day 
F#m7                         E/F# 
said itís it's a dead end and itís ts ts ts ts ts dead end thing 
D7               C7 
it's a dead end, a lonely day 
           D7   C7             F# 
and it's a long way a long way down sing it again 
           D7         C7 
and it's a long, long way 
                 Bm7 
itís a long way down 

E 
Long itís a long way-ee-ay 

Verse 3 (Here just palm mute the base notes of the verse chords): 
change is coming baby don't be startled lady 
every once in awhile they do it again 
you're gonna shake it, shake it you know you wanna take it 
back to where you once belonged 
back beneath the sheets and between the pillow cases 
and the snake he races out and then he tangles into your hair 
oh, funny the fruits you choose oh the time it takes the words you lose 
and it all goes back to rotation over the back of your hand 
said the back of your hand said the back of your hand 
well the map is your hand it's the back of your hand 
s-s-said the back of your hand you know the map is your hand 
oh you better take pictures and remember what you can 

             D7         C7 
cause it's a long, long way 
           D7 
and it's a long, long way-ee 
           D7          C7 
and it's a long, long, 
          D7        C7     F# 
mm itís a long, lo-ong way down 
             D7   C7            Bm7 
cause it's a long way, long way down 
Em               F#m7 
oooh itís a long ooo-oo-ooh 

h = hammer 
p = pull
