                             Coldplay - Us Against The World
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: TomKlose
Email: tomklose@web.de

Tuning: E A D F# B E

Capo 3rd Fret

   A   Asus4     E   Esus4      D   D/C#
E |-0---0---------0---0---------0---0---|
B |-0---0---------0---0---------0---0---|
F#|-10--8---------8---8---------0---0---|
D |-10--10--------9---10--------15--14--|
A |-10--10--------10--10--------15--15--|
E |-(8)-(8)-------0---0---------13--12--|

This looks difficult but it really is not. Since the song has not been
officially released yet, I had to look at Chris' fingers when they played the
song for the first time live at the "Rock Am Ring 2011". This is pretty much
the way he plays the song, I'm just not 100% sure with the lyrics! For an
easier version without capo and in Standard Tuning look below. Enjoy! :)


[Intro]

A Asus4 4x


[Verse]

   A            Asus4        A           Asus4
Oh morning come bursting the clouds move in
E             Esus4            E    Esus4
lift off this blindfold let me see again
    D
and bring back the water that your ships will rid
      A                E
in my heart she left a whole.

    A                  Asus4        A         Asus4
The tightrope that I'm walking just sways and ties
    E             Esus4              E       Esus4
the devil as he's talking with those angel's eyes
    D
and I just wanna be there when the lightning strikes
        A         E
and the saints go marching in.


[Chorus]

         A      Asus4 A     Asus4         E Esus4
E Esus4
And sing sloooo-ooooo-ooooo-oooow it down
                    D
through chaos as it swirls
                         A      E
it's just us against the world.


[Verse]

       A          Asus4      A      Asus4
Like a river to a raindrop I lost a friend
   E            Esus4       E      Esus4
my drunken as a dagger in a lion's den
    D
and tonight I know it all has to begin again
   A                         E
so whatever you do don't let go.


[Bridge]

                A     Asus4
And if we could float away
A             Asus4              E      Esus4
fly up to the surface we'll just start again
    E                Esus4
and lift off with no trouble
     D
just erodes us in the rain

just erodes us in the rain
      A                              E
just erodes us just erodes us in the rain.


[Chorus]

     A      Asus4 A     Asus4          E Esus4
E Esus4
Sing sloooo-ooooo-ooooo-ooooow it down
   D                                 A E
oh sloooo-ooooo-ooooo-ooooow it down.


[Instrumental]

[Outro]

                    D      D/C#
Through chaos as it swirls
                         E
it's just us against the world
                    D      D/C#
through chaos as it swirls
                    E~~~
it's us against the world.

Hey, thanks for the tab, it's spot on with all the fingering and stuff, they are definitely the correct chord shapes. I can only imagine Coldplayer16 is reading it wrongly.

The only tweak I would make is I'm pretty sure that the 2nd string is de-tuned to an 'A' making it EADF#AE tuning. This doesn't affect the chord shapes at all but sounds perfect to me. Try it, see what you think...

Oh, and while the '-------- lion's den' line is a mystery to me too, I'm pretty sure the third line of the song is bring back the water that your ships 'roll in' rather than 'will rid'. Hope that helps a bit, thanks again for the tab.
