Obadiah Parker

Obadiah Parker - Hey Ya guitar tab


/ Obadiah Parker / I think this song is a song about how hard it

/ Hey Ya (Outkast cover) / can be in a relationship and how hard it can be

/________________________/ to stick together sometimes - beautiful lyrics!

The song is played with capo on the 4th fret, so here are the chords first

with capo, then without capo:

(the names of the chords with capo are of course wrong, as C becomes an E

if you play a capo on the 4th fret, but it would have been C without capo)

C Fadd9 Gsus4 Am7 E Aadd9 Bsus4 C#m7

----3-----3-----3-----3---- ----4-----7-----7-----7----

My baby don't mess around

Because she loves me so

And this I know for sure

But does she really wanna

But can't stand to see me walk out the door

I can't stand to fight the feeling

'Cause the thought alone is killing me right now

Thank god for mom and dad for sticking two together

'Cause we don't know how

Hey ya, hey ya

Hey ya, hey ya

You think you've got it

Oh, you think you've got it

But God just don't get it till' there's nothing at all

We get together

Oh, we get together

But separates always better when there's feelings involved

If what they say that "nothing is forever"

Then what makes

What makes love the exception?

So why are, why are, why are, why are

Why are we so in denial when we know we're not happy here?

Hey ya, hey ya

Hey ya, hey ya

Alright now fellas

Yeah oh, cooler than being cool?

I can't hear you now, now, now

I say what's cooler than being cool?


What now ladies

Yeah, we're gonna bring it down in just a few seconds here

Now don't make me break this down for nothing

I wanna see you all on your all's baddest behavior

Lend me some sugar, I am your neighbor

Shake it

Shake it like a Polaroid Picture

Oh now, shake it

Shake it up

Hey ya, hey ya

Hey ya, hey ya
