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

 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

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

      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


 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

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

      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

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
