Before The Earth Was Round
Of The Blue Colour Of The Sky
Ok Go



C                    E  
Before the Earth was round, 
Am               F      
Oh there was no end to things. 
C                    E
And no one tried to measure,
Am               F     G
What they knew. 

Am              E
Everything was war, 
But everyone knew love. 
G#                          Am  
And every contradiction was true. 
The Sun worked twice as hard, 
And the Moon was twice as far. 
G#                              C
And the sky was still honestly blue.

F        G#
The sky was still honestly blue. 

C             E
When the time came,
Am                  F
Everything spiralled in.
C        E         Am        F
Everyone forgot what they knew. 

Am            E
War became a job,
And love became a mystery.
     G#                           Am
And heart and head were rent into two. 
Fear and doubt began,
And God threw up his hands,
         G#                      C
And the sky didn't know what to do. 
 F  G#                       C
The sky didn't know what to do. 

The song fades out playing about on the F, G#, C thing.

Ok but for the interlude and second verse, there's a key change. It's goes up three steps.

Use the "Transpose song" dropdown to get the correct chords for the 2nd verse.

Also suits the song much better as power chords

Oh, god, you're right, I'd never noticed. I guess I just worked out the first verse, then stuck it over the rest of the song. Which was... well, not smart of me. Thanks for pointing it out.

Very good but I believe the intro chord is an Em
