Red Balloons – Katie Melua

Hi guys, love this song so I decided to tab(/chord) it today. Hope you enjoy it, 
it is accurate.

INTRO
(C G D) x 3

VERSE
G
I put my heart in a red balloon 
G7
But I let it go too soon 
F
Let it go on the boulevard 
C
Where wicked winds blow so hard 

D					C
Maybe had I looked up I would have seen that 

CHORUS
       G
The sky is full of red balloons 
	                     C
Red balloons are full of broken hearts 
D				  Em
Broken hearts are floating by a chance 

	    C9	       G
Will they burst or drift 
          D
Into arms 
	    C9	       G
Will they burst or drift 
          D
Into arms 

VERSE
G
I put my voice in a red balloon 
G7
For you it sang too many tunes 
F
Haunted by those melodies 
C
I let it go with the breeze 

D					C
Maybe had I looked up I would have seen that 

CHORUS
       G
The sky is full of red balloons 
				C
Red balloons are full of broken hearts 
D				Em
Broken hearts are floating by a chance

	     C9	        G
Will they burst or drift 
	D
Into arms 
	     C9	        G
Will they burst or drift 
	D
Into arms 


   C	     D		       F       G
I put my eyes in a red balloon 
   C	     D		       F       G
To watch you with the light of the moon, 

C	D 	Em
But seeing you holding hands 
	Em	D 	C
With another girl and making plans 
C	D 	Em
Well I just had to set you free 
Em	D	C
And finally see, that 

CHORUS
       G
The sky is full of red balloons 
			C
Red balloons are full of broken hearts 
D				  Em
Broken hearts are floating by a chance 
	    C9	       G
Will they burst or drift 
          D
Into arms,
	    C9	       G
Will they burst or drift 
          D
Into arms


C G D (x 3) 
(+ SOLO - This small section can be improvised using the G Major/Major Pentatonic 
Scale and by extension the E Minor/Minor Pentatonic Scale. In other words, unless 
your dead set on playing the solo as its played in the song, you can improvise 
your own solo over these chords using the scales mentioned.)

OUTRO
	    C9	       G
They could burst or drift 
          D
Into arms,
          G
Into arms
