Intro Riff: G   C1  G   C1  G   C1   G   G/F#


Verse 1:
G                                   G/F#    Em
White lips, pale face, breathing in snowflakes
      C2             G        C1
Burnt lungs, sour taste
G                                    G/F#  Em
Lights gone, days end, struggling to pay rent
           C2        G
Long nights, strange men


Chorus:
Am7                              C3                   G'
And they say she's in the Class A Team, stuck in her daydream
                    D/F#               Am7                          C3
Been this way since 18, but lately her face seems, slowly sinking, wasting
               G'                            D/F#
Crumbling like pastries, and they scream the worst things in life come free to us
          Em          C2         G
Cos she's just under the upperhand, and go mad for a couple of grams
Em                   C2        G
And she don't want to go outside tonight
          Em                 C2          G
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland, or sells love to another man
Em       C2       G       D/F#      Em      
C2      G
It's too cold outside for angels to fly,
              Em   C2   G    G/F#
for angels to fly


Verse 2:
G                                          G/F#    Em
Ripped gloves, raincoat, tried to swim and stay afloat
      C2             G        C1
Dry house, wet clothes
G                                     G/F#  Em
Loose change, bank notes, weary-eyed, dry throat
        C2      G
Call girl, no phone

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/e/ed_sheeran/the_a_team_crd_ver_11.html ]
Chorus:
Am7                              C3                   G'
And they say she's in the Class A Team, stuck in her daydream
                    D/F#               Am7                          C3
Been this way since 18, but lately her face seems, slowly sinking, wasting
               G'                            D/F#
Crumbling like pastries, and they scream the worst things in life come free to us
          Em          C2         G
Cos she's just under the upperhand, and go mad for a couple of grams
Em                   C2        G
And she don't want to go outside tonight
          Em                 C2          G
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland, or sells love to another man
Em       C2       G       D/F#      Em
It's too cold outside for angels to fly
Am7           C3              Em
An angel will die, covered in white
               G
Closed eye and hoping for a better life
Am7                          C3                        G'
This time, we'll fade out tonight, straight down the line


Mini-Solo: Play Twice!
C3  G'  D/F#


Chorus:
Am7                              C3                   G'
And they say she's in the Class A Team, stuck in her daydream
                    D/F#               Am7                          C3
Been this way since 18, but lately her face seems, slowly sinking, wasting
               G'                            D/F#
Crumbling like pastries, and they scream the worst things in life come free to us
          Em          C2         G
Cos she's just under the upperhand, and go mad for a couple of grams
Em                   C2        G
And she don't want to go outside tonight
          Em                 C2          G
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland, or sells love to another man
Em       C2       G       D/F#      Em      
 C2       G       D/F#
It's too cold outside for angels to fly,
         C2   G   D/F#   Em
Angels to fly
         C2   G   D/F#   Em
To fly, fly
         C2   G   D/F#   Em
For angels to fly to fly, fly
   D/F#      G
Or angels to die

Great tab but what exactly is the C1 chord?

To wsccsw: C1 can be played like Asus4(addG):

........C1........
e--------3--------
B--------3--------
G--------0--------
D--------2--------
A--------0--------
E--------x--------

Don't use the chords that UG shows when you hover over the C2 and C3 in the tab, instead:

The C2 chord sounds better as a CaddDaddG (which is the same as the C1 chord above, but with a C as the bass note):

........C2........
e--------3--------
B--------3--------
G--------0--------
D--------2--------
A--------3--------
E--------x--------

And the C3 can be played as

........C3........
e--------3--------
B--------1--------
G--------0--------
D--------2--------
A--------3--------
E--------x--------

I'm just a hack on the guitar, but I've played acoustic guitar for 35 years, and these chords sound decent to my ears.
