Radiohead - The Bends
Tabbed by Tom Staunton <tomstaunton@eircom.net)

This is The Bends but a sort of simpler version. I'm really new and this is my first tab
so be gentle. If you would like to point out the mistakes and stupidity, please email me.

Intro (repeat 4 times)

 e|--2------0---0----3----3------|
 B|--3--x3--3---3----3----3------|
 G|--2------0---0----0----0------|
 D|--0------0---2----0----2------|
 A|-------------3----2----3------|
 E|-------------0----0----0------|


 Verse
 Em                        G
 Where do we go from here, the words are coming out all weird
                    C
 where are you now?, when i need you
 Em                    G                                  C
 Alone on an airplane, falling asleep against the window pane

 My blood will thicken

 e|--0----------------------------5s2-5s2-5s2-5s7-|
 B|--2---2-3-5-8-7-5-----5--4-5-7-----------------|
 G|--2---------------2-4-5------------------------|
 D|--2-------------------5------------------------|
 A|--0--------------------------------------------|
 E|--0--------------------------------------------|

 Em                           G
 I need to wash myself again, to hide all the dirt and pain
                    C
 cause i'd be scared, thats theirs nothing underneath,
 Em                          G
 and who are my real friends? have they all got the bends?
               C
 am i really sinking this low?

 Chorus (same as intro)
 My babys got the bends, oh no
 We don't have any real friends, no no no

 A
 Just lying in a bar with my drip feed on, talking to my girlfriend
                              Em
 waiting for something to happen,
 A
 and i wish it was the sixties i wish i could be happy,

 i wish, i wish, i wish that something would happen

 Verse(2nd)
 Where do we go from here? the planet is a gunboat,
 in a sea of fear, and where are you?
 They brought in the CIA, the tanks and whole marines
 to blow me away, to blow me sky high

 Chorus (same as Intro)
 My babys got the bends,
 we don't have any real friends
 Just lying in a bar with my drip feed on
 Talking to my girlfriend waiting for something to happen
 I wish it was the sixties, i wish i could nbe happy
 i wish, i wish, i wish that something would.....

 (do the same as  just before it goes into the second verse)
 Then, this is a very simple version of the solo. Listen to the song
 to get the strumming right.

 Solo
 e|--3------0----3------0----|
 B|--0--x4--3----0--x4--3----|
 G|--0------0----0------0----|
 D|--0------0----0------0----|
 A|--2------2----2------2----|
 E|--3------3----3------3----|

 e|--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-3-3-3-3-3-3-|
 B|--1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-|
 G|--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|
 D|--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-|
 A|--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|
 E|--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|

 Repeat sole twice then

 G                                                            C
 I want to live and breath, i want to be part of the human race
 G                                                            C
 I want to live and breath, i want to be part of the human race
 Em                     G
 Where do go from here, the words are coming out all weird
                   C
 Where are you now?, when i need you
