Jason Mraz — Dead End
From track 1 of Selections for Friends "Welcome To Schubas The EMinor EP in FSharp"

Mraz uses four basic jazz chords for most of the song:
F#m7  2x42x0
E/F#  x9799x
D7    x5x45x during verse  or  x5453x during breakdown
C#7   x4342x

I didn't take time to mark out where they all land during the verse, but they're played 
that order throughout.

There is also:
F#maj 244322
Emaj  x7999x

Intro/verse chords:

Verse 1:
say easily with me well i show affection
but it's creeping up creeping up on me in another direction
i love a ride and i know someday I'm gonna buy it so i try to ask no questions
but the weary one is often me well do you think it's obsession

D7                        C7                       D7
the smoke will find you a choker that matches your coat
not fit to be tied
    D7                     C7
the mirror it makes it all clearer
             D7                     C7
as you stand alone and can see your behind

Verse 2:
well they tried it and they like to say nobody would believe this
yes you tried it and you liked it but nobody could ever conceive of it
the way you stayed up locked away up keeping the flame for yourself
the way you played it out pushing the blame of reaping the fame for yourself

F#m7                       E/F#
oh, it's a it's a dead end it's ts ts ts ts ts dead end day
D7           C7
it's a dead, a lonely day
F#m7                         E/F#
said it's it's a dead end and it's ts ts ts ts ts dead end thing
D7               C7
it's a dead end, a lonely day
           D7   C7             F#maj
and it's a long way a long way down sing it again
           D7         C7
and it's a long, long way
it's a long way down
Long it's a long way—ee—ay

Verse 3 (Here just palm mute the base notes of the verse chords):
change is coming baby don't be startled lady
every once in awhile they do it again
you're gonna shake it, shake it you know you wanna take it
back to where you once belonged
back beneath the sheets and between the pillow cases
and the snake he races out and then he tangles into your hair
oh, funny the fruits you choose oh the time it takes the words you lose
and it all goes back to rotation over the back of your hand
said the back of your hand said the back of your hand
well the map is your hand it's the back of your hand
s—s—said the back of your hand you know the map is your hand
oh you better take pictures and remember what you can

             D7         C7
cause it's a long, long way
and it's a long, long way—ee
           D7          C7
and it's a long, long,
          D7        C7     F#maj
mm it's a long, lo—ong way down
             D7   C7            Bm7
cause it's a long way, long way down
Emaj             F#m7
oooh it's a long ooo—oo—ooh
