Made by Maxime Legault (insomniak40@hotmail.com)

Hi everyone! So I made up this ACOUSTIC VERSION to help people who would like to play a
Coldplay song,
so it's not the album version (since it's basically a piano song...), but feel 
free for any comments
or suggestions !!!
So enjoy!!!

EDIT AUGUST 11th 2010: Changed the lyrics, they are now accurate, they are from 
Coldplay's official website.


Standard Tuning with Capo on 2nd fret

Chords:

Bm ========== x24432
Bsus2 ======= x24422
G =========== 3x0003
Dmaj7sus4/G = 3x0023
Em ========== 022000
Em6 ========= 022020
Em(2) ======= 079987
A =========== x02220
F#m ========= 244222
D =========== xx0232  or 200232
F# (note) === 2xxxxx


EASY VERSION:

VERSE 1:

      Bm
Was a long and dark December

From the rooftops I remember
          G           Em
There was snow, white snow
  Bm
Clearly I remember from the windows
                            G
They were watching while we froze
        Em
Down below


CHORUS:
          G
When the future's architectured
     A                     Bm
By a carnival of idiots on show
                 A
You'd better lie low
       G    F#m D         Bm  A  Bm
If you love me, won’t you let me know?


VERSE 2:
      Bm
Was a long and dark December

When the banks became cathedrals
      G          Em
And a fox became God
 Bm
Priests clutched onto bibles

Hollowed out to fit their rifles
         G             Em
And the cross was held aloft


CHORUS:
G
Bury me an armour
         A
When I’m dead and hit the ground
              Bm            A
My nerves are poles that unfroze
       G    F#m D         Bm  A  Bm
If you love me, won’t you let me know?

GUITAR SOLO:

Bm Bm G Em  x2

(don't forget about the capo thing...it's 2 step higher so if you play without a capo, 3
a 5, 2 is a 7, etc...)

(3x)                        (1x)
|--------------------------|-----------------------------|
|-3p2p0-3------------------|--3p2p0-3--------------------|  (2x)
|------------2-----4-------|-------------2---------------|
|---------4-----4-----2----|----------4-----4--9-8--7-(6)|
|-----------------------2--|-------------------7-6--5-(4)|
|--------------------------|-------------------7-6--5-(4)|

(the last chord is played the second time only, and the first
time, you just return to beginning of the solo...)

CHORUS:
        G
I don’t want to be a soldier
       A
Who the captain of some sinking ship
     Bm
Would stow
    A
Far below
           G    F#m D         Bm  A  Bm
So, if you love me, why’d you let me go?

OUTRO:
          D    G       D  Bm  A    G
I took my love down to Violet Hill
A        Bm     F#m       G
There we sat    in the    snow
G   A    Bm   Em      D  Bm  A
All that time she was silent still
    F#m     G    F#m D         Bm   A    G
Said if you love me, won’t you let  me   know?
F#m       G   F#m D         Bm  A  Bm
If you love me, won’t you let me know?

GUITAR SOLO:

Bm Bm G Em  x2

(don't forget about the capo thing...it's 2 step higher so if you play without a capo, 3
a 5, 2 is a 7, etc...)

(3x)                        (1x)
|--------------------------|-----------------------------|
|-3p2p0-3------------------|--3p2p0-3--------------------|  (2x)

CHORUS:
        G

           A
Who the captain of some sinking ship
      Bm

    A

F#(note)   G    F#m D         Bm  A  Bm
So, if you love me, why’d you let me go?

OUTRO:
          D    G       D  Bm  A    G
I took my love down to Violet Hill
A        Bm     F#m     G
There we sat    in the  snow
G   A    Bm   Em(2)    D  Bm  A
All that time she was silent still
    F#m     G    F#m D         Bm  A    G
So, if you love me, won’t you let  me   know?
F#m     G   F#m D         Bm  A  Bm
If you love me, won’t you let me know?


So it's pretty much all there. For the distorted guitar fill during the verses (instead
playing the Em (and Em6 for the complex one)),
you can play the last 4 chords written in the "guitar solo"...

So enjoy !!! (and feel free for any suggestions)
