"Accoustic Part"


*please read first*
Hi guys, tabbed this nice song of coldplay. 
This is tabbed out of a live version in japan 2003. 
My Tab is 100% correct.
First of all you have to tune your thin E-string 4 halfsteps down to C,
like this: E A D G B C
If you wanna play the original song of the records, 
you will have to add a capo to the first fret.
But know we will check the live version.

First of all, the strummings:

in verse (and the end(don't strumm the x's)):
       D     D     D     D     D     D     D     D  U
c|-----------------------0-----------------------------------------|
B|-----0-----------------0-----------------0-----------------------|
G|-----0-----------------0-----------------0-----------------------|
D|-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0--0--------------|
A|-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0--0--------------|
E|-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0--0--------------|

       1     2     3     4     5     6     7     8     1

in chorus and solo:
       D     D  U  D     D     D  U  D     D     D  U
c|-----------------------0-----------------------------------------|
B|-----0-----------------0-----------------0-----------------------|
G|-----0-----------------0-----------------0-----------------------|
D|-----0-----0--0--0-----0-----0--0--0-----0-----0--0--------------|
A|-----0-----0--0--0-----0-----0--0--0-----0-----0--0--------------|
E|-----0-----0--0--0-----0-----0--0--0-----0-----0--0--------------|

       1     2     3     4     5     6     7     8     1

D = strum down
U = strum up


Now the chords:
for verse, chorus and solo:
 C-major   e-minor   G-major   F-major   d-minor   C/G-major
c|---0-----|---0-----|---0-----|---0-----|---0-----|---0--|
B|---0-----|---0-----|---0-----|---0-----|---0-----|---0--|
G|---9-----|---0-----|---0-----|---2-----|---0-----|---0--|
D|---10----|---2-----|---5-----|---3-----|---12----|---2--|
A|---10----|---2-----|---5-----|---3-----|---12----|---3--|
E|---8-----|---0-----|---3-----|---1-----|---10----|---3--|

~I know that most chordnames are wrong, but who cares~
tip: pick the bass strings with your thumb

chords for the end:
   F-major   C/G-maj   G-major   a-minor   C-major

~verse 1:~
 C          em          2x G
My song is love
 C          em          1,5x G then F
My song is love, unknown
 C          em          2x G
And it goes on
 F          em          2x G
You don't have to be alone


~verse 2:~
 C          em          2x G
Your heavy heart
 C          em          1,5x G then F
Is made of stone
 C          em          2x G
And its so hard to see clearly
 F          em          2x G
You don't have to be on your own
 F          em          2x G              <-- start with chorus strumming
You don't have to be on your own


~chorus 1:~
 2x dm            C        G
And I'm not gonna take it back
 2x dm            C        G
And I'm not gonna say I don't mean that
 2x dm            C        G
You're the target that im aiming at
 F                C/G      2x G
And I'm nothing on my own


~verse 3:~
 C          em          2x G
My song is love
 C          em          1,5x G then F
Love to the loveless shore
 C          em          2x G
But I'm on fire for you, clearly
 F          em          2x G              <-- start with chorus strumming
You don't have to be alone
 F          em          2x G              
You don't have to be on your own


~chorus 2:~
 2x dm            C        G
And I'm not gonna take it back
 2x dm            C        G
And I'm not gonna say I don't mean that
 2x dm            C        G
You're the target that im aiming at
 F                C/G      2x G
And I'm nothing on my own
 F                C/G      2x G

I'm not gonna leave it until its much too late
 2x dm            C        G
On a platform I'm gonna stand and sing
 F                C/G      2x G
That I'm nothing on my own
 F                C/G      2x G
