Violet Hill by Coldplay

STANDARD TUNING

[Verse 1]
      C#m
Was a long and dark December 

From the rooftops I remember
          A           F#m
There was snow, white snow 
  C#m
Clearly I remember from the windows 
                            A
They were watching while we froze... 
        F#m
Down below 

[Chorus]
          A
When the future's architectured
     B                     C#m
By a carnival of idiots on show 
                 B
You'd better lie low 
       A    G#m E         C#m B  C#m
If you love me, won’t you let me know?

[Verse 2]
      C#m
Was a long and dark December 
When the banks became cathedrals 
        A          F#m
And the fog became gone 
 C#m
Priest clutched onto bibles 
Hollowed out to fit their rifles
         A             F#m
And the cross was held aloft.

[Chorus]
A
Bury me in armor
         B
When I’m dead and hit the ground 
            C#m       B
My love's opposed but unfolds
       A    G#m E         C#m B  C#m
If you love me, won’t you let me know?

[Chorus]
        A
I don’t wanna be a soldier 
        B
who the captain of some sinking ship 
     C#m
would stow 
    B
far below...
             A    G#m E         C#m B  C#m
So if If you love me, won’t you let me know?

[Outro]
          E            A      G#m      A
I took my love down to Violet Hill 
        C#m     F#m   A   
There we sat    in    snow 
         C#m  F#m     A         G#m
All that time she was silenced still 
    E      A    E   C#m       F#m  B    C#m   F#m
So, if you love me, won’t you let  me   know?
       A    G#m E         C#m B  C#m
If you love me, won’t you let me know?
