RADIOHEAD Exit Music (For A Film)   (song can be found on O.K computer)
transcription by Joey Gallagher (joeygallagher@hotmail.com)

I've seen some transcriptions that aren't 100% accurate, here's the correct 

n.b :Everything sounds right, and it corresponds to what I've seen Thom play. -utopian 

[--Capo 2nd fret--]


Am      Asus2 Asus4     (X2)   then   Am

Verse 1

Am               E          C/G             Dadd9/F#

wake from your sleep,   the drying of your tears,

Am             E        Asus4   A

today we escape,   we escape

Am                E        C/G                  Dadd9/F#   Dadd9/F

pack and get dressed,     before your father hears us,

Am          E           Asus4   A

before all hell breaks loose


Gm11                    D7/F#

breathe,        keep breathing

Asus2     Am Asus2    Asus4      Am          Esus4

don't      lose         your    nerve

Gm11                     D7/F#

breathe,        keep breathing

Asus2          Am   Asus2    Asus4    Am      Esus4     E

I can't do    this             alone

Verse 2    (same chords as verse 1 )

Sing us a song, a song to keep us warm

there's sucha chill, sucha chill

Am             B             E      F                     Bb

And you can laugh,    a spineless laugh,   we hope your rules and        

Esus4      E

wisdom choke you

Am           E            C/G         Dadd9/F#   Dadd9/F

And now we are one, in everlasting peace,

Am                E                Asus4   A

We hope that you choke, that you choke    (repeat 3 times, end on A)

great tab! love these chords, they're sort of powerless with no real edge to them - that's cool for this song!
