About this tab version
Remember to always check the original song to perfectly understand chord changes and length. I capoed the song to be played easily although it's pretty simple even without the capo, just transpose it down a step. also a good training for barred chords if you're not used to them. I use a D major seventh chord in the intro and interlude part to add some openness and depth, you can use a simple major chord if you wanna keep it simple (as is the case in many rock songs). Same goes for the Gmaj7 in the outro. Strumming pattern are a suggestion, there is actually no rhythm guitar in the verse or intro/outro, be aware of the tempo changes though. the asus4: i first thought it was a b minor because it just fits the progression, but i figured out it's not really there (again, no guitar in the verse), the a keeps going. the bass line plays a and d, so asus4 seems the best fit. if you're in acoustic a b minor seventh can add some depth to the progression. your call. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Strumming Are these strumming patterns correct? Yes No

[Verse]

D A Bm G x 2

     D              A
In a village in the hills
                    Asus4           G
House buried to the window sills in snow
     D              A
In a prison yard at night
            Asus4                    G
An Alsatian barking for the stars to go 

       D          A 
In the attic of a house
                Asus4                        G 
In the slats of light which creep across the room
     D               A 
In a forest grove at dawn
          Asus4                       G
Where the animals sleep hidden in the gloom 


[Chorus]

       Bb             Bm
On the 97th floor overlooking Tokyo
   Bb                                      Bm
In Camden road in a second floor flat with Dilworth down below
         Bb              Bm
There is only one thing
Bb          A        D
   There is only one thing 


[Verse]

     D                     A
In a cancer ward where the patients sit
        Asus4        G
Waiting patiently to die
      D                A
In an aeroplane high above the place
    Asus4          G 
You finally left behind
 
     D               A    
In a cage where only one thing could be free
    Asus4            G
And it's not you and I
     D               A 
In a cage where only one thing could be free
    Asus4            G
And it's not you and I 


[Chorus]

   Bb                          Bm
In every single place that has ever ever been
  Bb                       Bm
Hiroshima, Los Angeles and each town in between
         Bb
There is only one thing
         Bm             Bb A
There is only one thing

One thing 


[Verse]

       D               A        Asus4         G
In the darkest part of you that you have ever seen
       D            A             Asus4      G  
In the smile of the child staring at the TV screen
       D          A                          Asus4        G 
In the diary of a priest, in the sheets that lie upon his bed
    D                 A         Asus4               G
Out there amongst the waves and inside your lover's head 


[Chorus]

         Bb
There is only one thing
         Bm
There is only one thing
         Bb
There is only one thing
         Bm
There is only one thing
         Bb
There is only one thing 
         Bm
There is only one thing 
Bb          A        
   There is only 
    N.C.
one thing

(tempo slows down)

Em7 G D x 2

Em7                          G               D
20 years of sleep before we sleep... forever
Em7                          G               D
20 years of sleep before we sleep... forever
Em7                            G               D
10 years on the coast figuring out the weather
        Em7             
Another decade getting high
             G
until you're free
                D
There's nothing after that but you and I

Nothing after that buy you and me
Em7                          G                D
20 years of sleep before we sleep... forever
Em7                          G                D
20 years of sleep before we sleep... forever
