leatherface did a good job tabbing this out.  i layed it out for myself and 
thought i would share my simplified transcription.  easier to follow along quickly methinks.

Radiohead - The Bends


[Intro]
D         Cadd9 G6 Cadd9    G6    Cadd9

[Verse]
 Em
Where do we go from here
     G
The words are coming out all weird
               C           C7
Where are you now, when I need you
 Em
Alone on an aeroplane
 G                                 C
Falling asleep against the window pane
               C7
My blood will thicken

Asus2 C7

   Em
I need to wash myself again
    G
to hide all the dirt and pain
               C                   C7
Cus I’ve been scared that there’s nothing underneath
 Em
Who are my real friends
 G
Have they all got the bends
             C       C7
Am I really sinking this low

[Refrain]
D     Cadd9 G6 Cadd9   G6  Cadd9
baby’s got the bends,     oh no
D              Cadd9 G6 Cadd9  G6           Cadd9
We don’t have any real friends,    whoa, no, no

[Chorus]
      Asus2
Just lying in the bar with my drip feed on
                                                    Em
Talking to my girlfriend, waiting for something to happen
                   Asus2
I wish it was the sixties, I wish I could be happy
                                             Em
I wish, I wish, I wish that something would happen

[Verse]
 Em
Where do we go from here
     G                               C
The planet is a gunboat in a sea of fear
          C7
And where are you
      Em                      G
They brought in the CIA, the tanks and the whole marines
            C               C7
To blow me away, to blow me sky high

[Refrain]
D     Cadd9 G6 Cadd9  G6   Cadd9
baby’s got the bends
D              Cadd9 G6 Cadd9  G6   Cadd9
We don’t have any real friends

[Chorus]
      Asus2
Just lying in the bar with my drip feed on
                                                    Em
Talking to my girlfriend, waiting for something to happen
                   Asus2
I wish it was the sixties, I wish I could be happy
                                             Em
I wish, I wish, I wish that something would happen

G C

         G
I wanna live, breathe
                              C
I wanna be part of the human race
         G
I wanna live, breathe
                              C
I wanna be part of the human race, race, race, race

[Verse]
Em
Where do we go from here
     G
The words are coming out all weird
               C           C7
Where are you now, when I need you



note:  radiohead's recording is not in concert tuning.  that's why it wont sound 
right if you play along.

for recording tuning, put a capo on one in current tuning, or transpose up 1
