Transcribed 28/7-2012 by Jon Malmin (
Tuning: Standard E
The chords are the same throughout the song. Look at the bottom of the tab to see
some suggestions on how to play the chords!
Intro: G6 Aadd9 Dmaj9 G6 (x2)
[G6]A boy from [Aadd9]Florida,
[Dmaj9]Took a trip to the C[G6]aribbeans
[G6]Umbrella in his d[Aadd9]aiquiri
[Dmaj9]Sipping, listening to B[G6]ob Marley
Guitar melody backing:
G6 Aadd9 Dmaj9 G6 (x2)
He came to get away
He came to get over it
Sunglasses and his radio,
Chilling, and a head swaying to-and-fro
Soul Rebel in stereo
You bring the ocean, I'll bring emotion
Together we'll make a love potion
You bring the ocean, I'll bring the motion
Dancing all night in slow motion
(Guitar melody)
He came to get away,
He came to get over her
Laptop and his cell phone,
Floating in the ocean 'til he's all alone
Soul Rebel in stereo
(Guitar melody)
[G]Don't you worry,[A] boy
[Dmaj7]Take your time,[G] don't hurry
[G]Don't you worry,[A] boy
[Dmaj7]Take your time,[A] don't hurry
(Chorus x2)
(Guitar melody)
G6 Aadd9 Dmaj9 G6 (x2)
[G6/D] [F#7/C#] [Fmaj7/C] [E]  
These are the chords I use to play this song:
G6: Aadd9: Dmaj9: F#7/C#: Fmaj7/C:
 3-5-5-4-0-0 5-7-7-6-0-0 x-5-4-6-5-0 x-4-4-3-2-0 x-3-3-2-1-0 

E: G6/D:
 0-2-2-1-0-0 x-5-5-4-3-0

However, there is an easier way to play the main chords if you find these difficult:
G6: A (not add9): Dmaj9 (no3):
 3-x-0-0-3-0 x-0-2-2-2-0 x-x-0-2-2-0
