TUNING: HALF STEP DOWN (D# G# C# F# A# D#)

The previous tab here was close, though it assumed a D chord for part of the
which isn't true.  I've made the listed Intro/refrain what I assume he plays, and I've 
at the
(*) what I think sounds better (it really just eliminates a weak sounding hammer on).  
stated above, the recording (and live shows), Mason Jennings tunes half a step down.
you're just grooving, it's hardly necessary. Thanks to whomever posted the last tab, it 
a good starting point.

I tell you what I'm gonna do
           C         F G
I'm gonna lighten up
            C                          F        G
I'm gonna throw a box of books and my beloved guitar
          C
into the back of my truck
F            G
 And try my luck in

INTRO x 2

Gonna stay away from LA
Stayin far away from there
Going north of San Fransisco
Into the cleaner air
Gonna get a little land from the money I saved
Buy an old house that I can work on
where the next nearest neighbor lives miles away
I'll never have to mow the lawn, right on

INTRO x 2
BRIDGE x 4

and when the house is all finished
and the garden is grown
i'm gonna write you a letter
asking you to come home
and i know that you will come
yes i know that you will come
others may know where ya been
but honey i know where you're from, you're from
