Soak Up the Sun  Sheryl Crow

The Easiest way to do the intro riff is by making an Emaj bar chord
Intro:
 
 e----------------------|
 B-------9--------------|
 G-----9---9------------|
 D---9-------9-9--7-7---|
 A-7---------9-9--7-7---|
 E-----------7-7--5-5---| 2x

In the actual song she uses continues to use the intro riff for the verses, but if
you want an easier way you can use these chords instead:
Verse 1:
[E]My friend the communi[B]st holds m[A]eetings[E] in his RV.[B] [A]
[E]I can't afford his ga[B]s, so I[A]'m stuc[E]k here watching TV.[B] [A]
[E]I don't have digit[B]al. I[A] don't[E] have diddlysquat.[B] [A]
[E]It's not having what you[B] want. It's wa[A]nting w[E]hat you've got.[B] [A]
Chorus:
[E]I'm gonna soak up the sun. I'm Gonna [B]tell everyone[F#m]
[G#m]To [A]lighten u[B]p (I'm gonna tell 'em that)
[E]I've got no one to blame Fo[B]r every time I feel lame[F#m]
[G#m]I'm [A]looking u[B]p
I'm gonna soak up the sun
(start rift or verse chords)
I'm gonna soak up the sun.
Verse 2: (She uses the rift again here, but these are the chords anyways)
[E]I?ve got a crum[B]my job. It d[A]on't p[E]ay near enough.[B] [A]

Bridge:
[E]Every time I [E/D#]turn around I'm looking up,[D] you're looking down. [A]

The water's still free
I'm gonna soak up the sun
before it goes out on me.

Don?t have no master suite, but I?m still the king of me.
You have a fancy ride, but baby I?m the one that has the key.
