Band: Coldplay
Song: Only Superstition
Album: Brothers & Sisters EP
Words & Music: Guy Berrymen, Jon Buckland, Will Champion & Chris Martin
From: Zachary

Standard Tuning: EADGbe

Chords Used:

e| 0    0    1    3
b| 1    1    1    3

Note: Yeah, 4 chords only, I'm just trying to make it simple & basic so
      that everybody can understand it. What makes the song fantastic
      is because the electric guitar adds lots of 'flower' in it & the
      way Chris sings it. Enjoy! In the intro, the Cmaj just strum it
      once.

Verse 1:

Cmaj        Amin
A cardboard head I see,

Fmaj          Amin
Has found its way to me,

Cmaj         Amin              Cmaj Amin
It’s old and it’s old and it’s old,

          Fmaj Gmaj
Making me cry,

Verse 2:

Cmaj          Amin
I sleep but I will not move,

Fmaj          Amin
Too scared to leave my room,

Cmaj           Amin         Cmaj
But I won’t be defeated, oh no,

Note: The electric guitar do some of the intro here.

Pre-Chorus:

Cmaj                      Fmaj
What if cards don’t go my way?

Fmaj                      Amin
And it’s sure to spoil my day,

       Cmaj            Fmaj
But in voices loud and clear,

Note: This part electric guitar do the same as the intro.

Chorus:

           Amin                  Gmaj
You say to me "It’s only superstition,

Amin                  Gmaj
It’s only your imagination,

Amin                                 Fmaj
It’s only all of the things that you fear,

        Amin                        Fmaj
And the things from which you can’t escape."

Verse 3:

Cmaj               Amin
Keep clean for the thousand time,

Fmaj            Amin
Stand still and wait and line,

Cmaj             Amin                   Cmaj
Some numbers are badder than others, oh no,

Note: Same as the first one.

Pre-Chorus:

Cmaj                      Fmaj
What if cards don’t go my way?

Fmaj                      Amin
And it’s sure to spoil my day,

       Cmaj            Fmaj
But in voices loud and clear,

Note: Same as the first one.

Chorus:

           Amin                  Gmaj
You say to me "It’s only superstition,

Amin                  Gmaj
It’s only your imagination,

Amin                                 Fmaj
It’s only all of the things that you fear,

        Amin                         Fmaj
And the things from which you cannot expect."

Bridge:

Amin               Fmaj
But it’s making me cry,

Amin               Fmaj
And it’s making me cry,

Amin             Fmaj
And I’m slipping away,

Amin             Fmaj
And I’m slipping away,

Fade:

Amin              Gmaj                   Amin
It’s only superstition, only your imagination,

Amin              Gmaj               Amin
It’s only superstition, only superstition,
