Ordinary World Tabbed by George Ireland Of Rugby.

Chords: C#m(446654) E(022100) F#(244322) A(577655) B(799877)
Main Riff: C#m,/E,F#,/C#m
PreChorus: C#m,G#,B,E
Chorus: B,F#,A,E,B

The way he plays it, he goes C#m,then you hear the slide to the E then strum strum,
then F# then strum strum slide up to the C#m so the way he plays it.. if you listen
to the acoustic version, almost sounds like 4 chords, but really its only 3

Then guitar 1 playes the foreground riff 1 :

Main Riff:

C#m
Came in from a rainy Thursday
E        B
on the avenue
C3m                               E       B
thought I heard you talking softly
C#m                               E       B
I turned on the lights, the TV and the radio

C#m                               E     B
still I can't escape the ghost of you

C#m
What is happened to it all?
G#m
Crazy, some say
B                           E
Where is the life that I recognize?
E
gone away

B                         F#m
But I won't cry for yesterday
                      A
there's an ordinary world
        E           B
somehow I have to find
B                        F#m
And as I try to make my way
                  A
to the ordinary world
        A           E
I will learn to survive

C#m
Passion or coincidence
E         B
once prompted you to say
C3m              E  B
"Pride will tear us both apart"
C#m
Well now pride's gone out the window
E             B
cross the rooftops, runaway
C#m             E     B
left me in the vacuum of my heart

C#m
What is happening to me?
G#m
Crazy, some say
B                           E
Where is my friend when I need you most?
E
Gone away

B                         F#m
But I won't cry for yesterday
                      A
there's an ordinary world
        E           B
somehow I have to find
B                        F#m
And as I try to make my way
                  A
to the ordinary world
        A           E
I will learn to survive

E--------------------------------------|

C#m
Papers in the roadside
E        B
tell of suffering and greed
C3m            E  B
feared today, forgot tomorrow
C#m
ooh, here beside the news
E               B
of holy war and holy need
C#m             E     B
ours is just a little sorrowed talk

E
(Just blowing away)

B                         F#m
But I won't cry for yesterday
                      A
there's an ordinary world
        E           B
somehow I have to find
B                        F#m
And as I try to make my way
                  A
to the ordinary world
        A           E
I will learn to survive

play this as he repeats 'I will learn'...'to survive'
        A           E

        A           E

        A           E

        A           E
