I’m Yours | Chords + Lyrics (capo 2)


Intro

| A | E | F#m | D |

Verse 1

| A | E |
Well, you done, done me and you bet I felt it, I tried to be chill but you’re so hot that I melted.
| F#m | D |
I fell right through the cracks, and now I’m trying to get back.
| A | E |
Before the cool done run out, I’ll be giving it my bestest, and nothing’s going to stop me but divine intervention.
| F#m | D |
I reckon it’s again my turn, to win some or learn some.

Chorus 1

| A | E | F#m | D |
But I won’t hesitate no more, no more, it cannot wait, I’m yours.

Instrumental 1

| A | E | F#m | D |

Verse 2

| A | E |
Well open up your mind and see like me, open up your plans and damn you’re free.
| F#m | D |
Look into your heart and you’ll find, love, love, love, love.
| A | E |
Listen to the music of the moment people dance and sing, we’re just one big family,
| F#m | D | B |
and it’s our God-forsaken right to be, loved, love, love, love, loved

Chorus 2

| A | E | F#m | D |
So I won’t hesitate no more, no more, it cannot wait, I’m sure.
| A | E | F#m | D |
There’s no need to complicate, our time is short, this is our fate, I’m yours.

M8

||: A E/G# | F#m E | D | B :||
And do do do do you…. But do ya want to come on, scooch on over closer dear. And I will nibble your ear, so du ba ba….

Verse 3

| A |
I’ve been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror,
| E |
and bending over backwards just to try to see you clearer,
| F#m | D |
but my breath fogged up the glass, so I drew a new face and I laughed.
| A | E |
I guess what I’m saying is there ain’t no better reason, to rid yourself of vanities and just go with the seasons,
| F#m | D |
it’s what we aim to do, our name is our virtue.

Chorus 3

| A | E | F#m | D |
But I won’t hesitate no more, no more, it cannot wait, I’m yours.

Outro

| A | E |
Well open up your mind and see like me, open up your plans and damn you’re free.
| F#m | D |
Look into your heart and you’ll find that the sky is yours, so please don’t, please don’t, please don’t.
| A | E |
There’s no need to complicate ’cause our time is short this,
| F#m | D | B |
oh, this, oh this, oh this is our fate, I’m yours-ah!

I’m Yours Chords: Learn the progressions


I'm Yours 8 step by step guitar lessons

Jason Mraz‘s I’m Yours chord progression for the verse/chorus section is simple and very common with its I – V – VI – IV progression.

In the key of B, that’s:

||: B (I) | F# (V) | G#m (VI) | E IV) :||

It’s so common, that this is recognized as the safe bet for modern hits, I placed it at #3 on my top 10 chord progression list.

Using a capo and playing high up the neck, makes it much more difficult in terms of seeing the chords, but maybe you should think of them as AEF#mD instead. Above, I’ve written both with lyrics.

Make sure you can see how the chord progression is the same with a capo, like this:

||: A (I) | E (V) | F#m (VI) | D IV) :||

A few licks are incorporated into my one acoustic guitar arrangement. These are best described using TAB, here’s the first example of how you could play the chords, with the little extensions, making it a chord riff:

I'm Yours TAB. Verse chorus instrumental, example 1

Members look at another three examples of how to play this verse/chorus/instrumental section using TAB and a play-along loop as you see above.

Looking at the full lesson series in the course, you’ll find a section about nursery rhyme hit writing in general, and TAB for how to play the middle 8.

This is followed by playing the complete song with a singer (check the top of this page) complete with TAB.

Finally, we look at constructing a 2nd guitar part so you, me, and the singers can play I’m Yours together.

Here’s a link to the complete lesson series: I’m Yours – Guitar Lessons with TAB.



I put I’m Yours on YouTube before Jason Mraz!

In hindsight, the rest of the world agreed with Spy Tunes that I’m Yours was the song of 2008 but it took a while!

I recorded this tune in 2007 and received over a million plays on YouTube very quickly (the account has since been deleted).

Based on the original EP version (Extra Credit ’05) I decided that if Jason wasn’t going to release this obvious monster hit, then I would!

In May 2008, Mraz finally came to his senses and released it as the first single off his album We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things.

At first, sales were slow but by late 2009 it was clear that I’m Yours was the best-selling song since the Millennium with 13 million sales in the U.S. alone.

It also spent the longest time in the Billboard charts (74 weeks), a world record at the time.
