Sitting, Waiting, Wishing by Jack Johnson – Lyrics with Guitar Chords

[Intro]
 
Am  Am7  G  G7  F  F7  C  C7
 
 
[Verse]
 
Am                  Am7
Well I was sitting, waiting, wishing 
G               G7
You believed in superstitions 
F                F7      C
Then maybe you'd see the signs 
    Am                   Am7
The Lord knows that this world is cruel 
  G                      G7
I ain't the Lord, no I'm just a fool 
         F               F7              C
Learning lovin' somebody don't make them love you 
 
 
[Chorus]
 
       E                             Am*    Am7*  Am*  Am7*
Must I always be waiting, waiting on you 
       E                               Am*  Am7*  Am*  Am7*
Must I always be playing, playing your fool 
 
 
[Verse]
 
  Am                 Am7
I sang your songs, I danced your dance 
  G                 G7
I gave your friends all a chance 
    F
But putting up with them 
F7                 C            C7
Wasn't worth never having you 
Am                        Am7
Maybe you've been through this before 
         G                G7
But it's my first time so please ignore 
    F                    F7                     C    C7
The next few lines cause they're directed at you 
 
 
[Chorus]
 
       E                             Am*    Am7*  Am*  Am7*
I can't always be waiting, waiting on you 
       E                               Am*  Am7*  Am*  Am7*
I can't always be playing, playing your fool 
 
 
[Bridge]
 
C                   E                    F
I keep playing your part but it's not my scene 
     F            G               F
Want this plot to twist I've had enough mystery 
C                    E                   F
You keep building it up then shooting me down 
        F       G         G
But I'm already down just wait a minute 
Am Am7 G     G7          F    F7
        Just sitting, waiting 
C    C7        Am  Am7  G    G7       F        F7  C  C7
Just wait a minute      Just sitting, waiting 
      Am          Am7
Well, if I was in your position 
    G               G7
I'd put down all my ammunition 
    F               F7          C     C7
I'd wonder why'd it taken me so long 
    Am                  Am7
But Lord knows that I'm not you 
    G                    G7
And if I was, I wouldn't be so cruel 
      F                    F7         C    C7
Cause waitin' on love aint so easy to do 
 
 
[Chorus]
 
       E                             Am*    Am7*  Am*  Am7*
Must I always be waiting, waiting on you 
       E                               Am*  Am7*  Am*  Am7*
Must I always be playing, playing your fool 
              E                           Am*  Am7*  Am*  Am*
No, I can't always be waiting, waiting on you 
        E                                Am*  Am7*  Am*  Am*
I can't always be playing, playing your fool        fool
