G   B7   C  C/B  D  (x2)


G                        B7            C          C/B              D
Made a meal and threw it up on Sunday, i've got a lot of things to learn

G                       B7               C              C/B       D
Said I would and i'd be leaving on day, before my heart starts to burn


C                         D
So what's the matter with you?

G       G/F#      Em
Sing me something new

                   A7                                 C                         
Don't you know the cold and wind and rain don't know, they only seem to come 
and go away

VERSE 2 (same chords as verse 1)

Times are hard when things have got no meaning, i've found the key upon the floor
Maybe you and I will not believe in, the things we find behind the door



G        D
Stand by me
       Am                          C  F  D/F#
Nobody knows, the way its gonna be
(repeat 3 times)

G        D             Am                 C              
Stand by me, nobody knows, yeah nobody knows
The way it's gonna be

VERSE 3 (same chords as verse 1)

If you're leaving will you take me with you, I'm tired of talking on my phone
There is one thing i can never give you, my heart will never be your home



Stand by me
Nobody knows, the way its gonna be
(repeat 3 times)

G        D             Am                 C   
Stand by me, nobody knows, yeah nobody knows
                  Em   D   C  
the way its gonna be

                  Em   D   C      
The way its gonna be yeah
            Em   D   C   
Maybe I can see yeah

Great tab man, but you do have some mistakes:

1. In the bridge, it's not A7, it's A.
2. In the "They only seem to come and go" part, it's not just C, it's C, and right after, comes C/B.
3. In the Chorus, it's not D/F#, it's just D.
4. At the end of the chorus, your'e not playing Am at "Nobody knows", Youre playing C, and you staying on that chord.
5. Right before the G at the end of the chorus ("The way it's gonna be"), youre playing D.

That's about it, great tab!

I agree with points 1, 3 and 5.
At point number 2 you say that there's a C/B after the C which I just cant hear and I've never seen noel playing it. (watch the "acoustic by the pool" vid to clear things up).
Point number 4 aint true. He has tabbed that well, you hold Am then you change to C.

dont you know the cold and wind and rain dont know?
they only seem to come and go away!
