                            Bodysnatchers - Radiohead
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Gallagher2006

For the tone, try getting an old amplifier and just push everything at “10”, as
well as distortion.

Tuning: Drop D on all guitars

         Bb
Has the light gone out for you?
            Dm
Because the light's gone for me
           C
It is the 21st century
          F/D
It is the 21st century
        Bb
You can fight it like a dog
           Dm
And they brought me to my knees
          C
They got scared and they put me in
          F/d
They got scared and they put me in
         Bb
All the lies run around my face
         Dm
All the lies run around my face
         C
And for anybody else to see
         F/d
And for anybody else to see

         G
I'm alive...
