A Rush of Blood to the Head - Coldplay

Questions, comments, suggestions - k_ekakia@hotmail.com

Initially, I wasn't that big on this song, but after awhile it grew on me and
became one of my favorite Coldplay songs, ever.  The actual version has an extra
string tuned to D from what I can hear. This version is as accurate as I could
get it using standard tuning, and it's quite easy with only one barre.

  Tuning (EADGBE)
      Am (x02210)
     C/G (332010)
      Em (022000)
       F (xx3211)
Fmaj7b5  (xx3200) 
      D7 (xx0212)
   Bbmaj7(xx3335)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My strumming for each stanza chord: down,down,down,down,up,down,up,down,
(little pause)up,down,up
My strumming for each chorus chord: down (x8) 
In any case, you'll figure it out.

[Verse 1]

Am                                           C/G
He said I'm gonna buy this place and burn it down

Em                             Am    
I'm gonna put it six feet underground

Am                                             C/G
He said "I'm gonna buy this place and watch it fall

Em                                         Am
Stand here beside me baby in the crumbling walls

(The Am|C/G|Em|Am section occurs two more times)

Oh I'm gonna buy this place and start a fire
Stand here until I fill all your heart's desires
Because I'm gonna buy this place and see it burn
Do back the things it did to you in return

(Add an extra Am here)

F         Fmaj7b5  x2
Ah ah ah, ah ah ah...

Am|C/G|Em|Am x2
He said I'm gonna buy a gun and start a war
If you can tell me something worth fighting for
Oh and I'm gonna buy this place that's what I said
Blame it upon a rush of blood to the head


[Hook]

F
Honey
F                                        D7
All the movements you're starting to make
D7                                F
See me crumble and fall on my face
F                                  D7 
And I know the mistakes that I made
D7      Bbmaj7                       F 
See it all disappear without a trace.
F                                  D7
And they call as they beckon you on
D7          Bbmaj7                  Am
They said start as you mean to go on
Am|C/G|Em
Am
Start as you mean to go on

(Okay, that's it.  You just repeat the same chords for the next stanza and
chorus, and so on.  At the end of the song there are some nifty chords, but I'm
not sure how to explain them.)


[Verse 2]

He said "I'm gonna buy this place and see it go
Stand here beside my baby, watch the orange glow
Some will laugh and some just sit and cry
But you just sit down there and you wonder why

So I'm gonna buy a gun and start a war
If you can tell me something worth fighting for
And I'm gonna buy this place that's what I said
Blame it upon a rush of blood to the head
Oh to the head


[Hook] (Add extra Am here, again)

Honey
All the movements you're starting to make
See me crumble and fall on my face
And I know the mistakes that I made
See it all disappear without a trace.
And they call as they beckon you on
They said start as you mean to go on
As you mean to go on, as you mean to go on


[Outro]

So meet me by the bridge,
Oh meet me by the lane
When am I going to see
That pretty face again

Meet me on the road
Meet me where I said
Blame it all upon
A rush of blood to the head
