Welcome to this Carry Me Away Guitar Tutorial by John Mayer!

Everytime John releases a song or album I just get goosebumps. This song is no exception and has a beautiful feel to it. There’s a really simple and fun riff that gets played through much of the song. For the rest of it, there are just simple chords and strumming. This is a great song for beginners and for those who love singing along to John Mayer tracks.

My friend and amazing artist Toogla has provided vocals for the playthrough at the end of the song. Check his cover of this song and hit subscribe ►TOOGLA’s COVER – https://youtu.be/DRuO9tTq3sk

[Verse 1]
C                      
  I'm such a bore, I'm such a bummer
C                       
  There must be more, behind the summer
F                       
  I want someone, to make some trouble
F                        
  Been way too safe, inside my bubble


[Pre-Chorus 1]
Am           C                      F
Oh, take me out and keep me up all night
        Am           C                  F 
Let me live, on the wilder side of the light


[Chorus 1]
G        F     
Carry me away, carry me away
          C
Carry me away
         F     
Carry me away, carry me away
          Am  C  F   G
Carry me away
Am  C  F   G


[Bridge]
F
  You carnivore, you loose cannon, can I have some more, I can't understand it
C
  You fast car, you foolish spender, you know you are, and I surrender
F
  So come on over, and wake me up, put some of your tequila in my coffee cup
C
  You know I need ya, and that's for sure, you're just the kinda crazy I've been lookin' for


[Chorus 2]
         F     
Carry me away, carry me away
          C
Carry me away, where the sun hits my face all different
         F     
Carry me away, carry me away
         Am
Carry me away
               G              D/F#   F    C   
Ahhhh-ahh-ahh, ahhhh-ahh-ahh, ahhhhhhhhhh ahh
