Sitting Waiting Wishing  Jack Johnson

[Verse 1] 
[Am]                      [Am7]               
I was sitting, waiting, wishing

[G]                      [G7]               
You believed in superstitions

[F]                       [F7]             [C] [C7] 
Then maybe you would see the signs

[A]                      [A7]               
But lord knows that this world is cruel

[G]                      [G7]               
And I ain't the lord no I'm just a fool

[F]                       [F7]              
Learning loving somebody

                               [C]     [C7] 
Don't make them love you


      [E] [E7]       [Am]    [Am7] 
Must I al-ways be wait-ing, wait-ing on you?

      [E] [E7]       [Am]    [Am7] 
Must I al-ways be play-ing, play-ing your fool?

[Verse 2] 

I sang your songs I danced your dance

I gave your friends all a chance

But putting up with them

Wasn't worth never having you

Maybe you've been through this before

But it's my first time so please ignore

The next few lines because they're directed at you


I can't always be waiting, waiting on you

I can't always be playing, playing your fool


[C]                            [E]         
I keep playing your part

But it's not my scene

Want this plot to twist

I've had enough mystery

[C]                     [E]                
You keep building it up

But then you're shooting me down

But I'm already down

Just wait a minute

[Tben same as verse] 

Just sitting, waiting

Just wait a minute

Just sitting, waiting

[Verse 3] 

Well if I was in your position

I'd put down all my ammunition

I'd wonder why it had taken me so long

But lord knows that I'm not you

And if I was I wouldn't be so cruel

Because waiting on love

Ain't so easy to do

Must I always be waiting, waiting on you?

Must I always be playing, playing your fool?
