Here is one of the best songs off of Maroon. It`s really fun to play, too; very up-tempo.
This is also my first tab, so I would greatly appreciate some feedback. Thanks!

INTRO:
G Cadd9 x 4

VERSE 1:
G Cadd9
Well let me tell you if you`re feeling alone,
G Cadd9
Instead of whining and moaning,
G Cadd9 G Cadd9
Just get on the phone, tell her you`re coming home
Riff 1
If you need her, you should be there

VERSE 2:
G Cadd9 G Cadd9
And if you scream in your sleep, or collapse in a heap
G Cadd9 G Cadd9
And spontaneously weep then you know you`re in deep
Riff 2
If you need her, you should be there
G Cadd9 G
Go Home.

CHORUS 1:
Riff 3
There`s nothing better than affairs of the heart
G G/F# Em
To make you feel so good then tear you appart
Riff 3 G Cadd9 G Cadd9
Make up your mind and stick it out or start again.

VERSE 3:
G Cadd9
You can`t imagine what an effort it takes
G Cadd9
When you make a mistake
G Cadd9 G Cadd9
And you know in the wake that a heart`s gonna break
Riff 1
If you need her, you should be there

VERSE 4:
G Cadd9
If you`re flummoxed and flushed
G Cadd9
And your heartbeat is rushed
G Cadd9 G Cadd9
Then get out of the slush, tell your dog team to mush
Riff 2
If you need her, you should be there,
G Cadd9 G
Go Home.

CHORUS 2:
Riff 3
If you think of her as Joan of Arc
G G/F# Em Em7
She`s burning for you, get your car out of park
Riff 3
If you think of her as Catherine the Great
G G/F# Em Em7
Then you should be the horse to help her meet her fate
Riff 4
If you need her, you should be there,
G Cadd9 G Bm
Go Home.

BRIDGE:
Em D G Cadd9 G Bm
You can`t believe it, but it`s true
Em D G Cadd9 G Bm
She`s given everything to you
Em F Am
Now take a moment to be sure
Cm G Cadd9 G Cadd9
Before you give it all to her.

VERSE 5:
G Cadd9
Well now you`re thinking that it`s over at last,
G Cadd9
All your woes in the past
G Cadd9 G Cadd9
But you`ve got to be fast; put your foot on the gas
Riff 1
If you need her, you should be there

VERSE 6:
G Cadd9
So now you`re out from under the gun,
G Cadd9
And it`s over and done
G Cadd9 G Cadd9
I won`t spoil all the fun but if you ever wonder
Riff 2
She`ll be there if you need her
G Cadd9 G
Go Home.

CHORUS 3:
Riff 3
If you`re lucky to be one of the few
G G/F# Em Em7
To find somebody who can tolerate you
Riff 3
Then I shouldn`t have to tell you again
G G/F# Em Em7
Just pack your bags and get yourself on a plane
Riff 4
If you need her, you should be there,
G G/F# Em Em7
Go Home........C`mon man,
Riff 2
If you need her, you should be there,
G Cadd9 G Cadd9 G Cadd9 G D/F# G
Go Hoooooooome... Fuck yeah!
