This is an easy chords/tabs one for all the John Mayer fans out there. It’s good because the song is meant to be played on a acoustic guitar 🙂

In the record, the ending is just a fade, But you can end with the E chord to resolve to the main root and melody.

[Verse 1]
E                    G#m
..Should've been open, should've done more
C#m                                    A 
..Should've learned a lesson from the year before
E                      G#m  
..Should've been honest, should've just cried
C#m                             A  
..Should've told me there was nothing left inside

[Pre-Chorus]
         B                  C#m   A  
Now the road keeps rollin' on forever
         B                 C#m    A  
And the years keep pullin' us apart

[Chorus]
B           C#m                A   
..We lost something, I still wonder where it was
A                   A
It shouldn't matter,
            B            E   
shouldn't matter but it does

..You should've just broken, you should've come clean
C#m                                   A  
..You should've been sad instead bein' so *****' mean
E                     G#m
..It shouldn't be easy, but it shouldn't be hard
C#m                                    A  
..You shouldn't be a stranger in your own backyard

[Pre-Chorus]
         B                  C#m  A  
Now the road keeps rollin' on forever
         B                  C#m   A  
And the years keep pullin' us...apart

[Chorus]
B             C#m             A   
..I know it's over, I'm just sayin' this because
A                   A
It shouldn't matter,
            B            E   
shouldn't matter but it does

..I shouldn't be angry, I shouldn't hold on
C#m                              A  
..I shouldn't leave messages in every little song
E                        G#m
..It could've been always, it could've been me
C#m                            A  
..We could've been busy and bathin', number three

[Pre-Chorus]
        B                 C#m    A
Now the road keeps rollin' on forever

...It shouldn't matter, shouldn't matter but it
F#m                  A             B             E
