Coldplay - Charlie Brown

Tabbed by VanVeenTabs


Capo 3rd fret

Intro: Em C G G Em C Em Am


Em        C     G
       I stole a key
       Em                      C
Took a car downtown where the lost boys meet
          G                Am                         Em                     
I took a car downtown and took what they offered me  
    C    G
To set me free
           Em                    C
I saw the lights go down at the end of the scene
           G                          Am                                      
I saw the lights go down and they're standing in front of me  

Em C G G Em C Em Am

Em           C      G
        My scarecrow dreams
           Em                     C
When they smashed my heart into smithereens
          G                     Am                    Em                        
I'll be a bright red rose come bursting the concrete
      C     G
Be a cartoon heart

C
Light a fire, from a spark
D                            C
Light a fire, a flame in my heart

            C
We'll run wild
                         Em
We'll be glowing in the dark

C G G Em C Em Am 

Em C G G Em C Em Am 

         D
All the boys, all the girls
         C              G
All the madness in the world
         D
All the boys, all the girls
         C              G
All the madness that occurs
         D
All the highs, all the lows
        C
As the room is spinning, oh

C
We'll run wild oh
                            Em  
We'll start glowing in the dark

Em  C  G  Em C  Em  Am x2

C
It was all an innocent riot
                         G
We'll be glowing in the dark

so in the intro where it goes: Em C G G Em C Em Am; the Em right before the Am isn't necessary. i believe it should just be: Em C G G C Am. Basically, you play the C alittle longer and obviously this would be throughout the song, not just the intro. other than that, great tab. :) thank you.

so this isn't the way Chris plays it but to have the guitar in standard tuning this sounds good considering Coldplay uses some funky tuning. Also this works well to play the main riff the same way as the other guitarist does live so this seems like the most accurate way for one person to play the song on an acoustic guitar. Thank you for the tab!
