The Am chord is sometimes "sussed" to add a transition, but mostly
chords are just strummed once with lots of echo and reverb and a bit of
distortion. The strumming can be slightly tricky if you're singing at
the same time, so listen to the record to get it right.


Am G6 Fmaj7 E7 F G


Drums come in...

Verse 1:


Am G6 Fma7 E7 Am
Oho, can't anybody see? You gotta walk to find me,

G6 Fmaj7 E7
Never found our way, regardless, of what they say

F G Am F
How can it feel, this wrong? From this moment,

G Am
How can if feel, this wrong?

Verse 2: (same chords as previously) Chords have more echo here

Am G6 Fmaj7 E7 Am
Stoned, in the morning light, I feel, no more

G6 Fmaj7 E7 F G
Can I say, frozen, to myself, I got nobody on my side,

And surely that ain't right

F G Am
Surely that ain't right.

Verse 3:


Same as verse 1, except with strings..Also, 2nd Am is sussed,if you see what I mean...(play 2nd Am as Am->Asus4->G6)

Ohh, can't anybody see
We've got a war to fight
Never found our way
Regardless of what they say

F G Am F
How can it feel, this wrong, from this moment

G E7
How can it feel, this wrong?

Play intro (with a lot of bass A, G, F, E) up to:

F G Am F
How can it feel, this wrong, from this moment

G E7
How can it feel, this wrong?

Play Verse 1 again (the same way as in intro).

Ends on: Am
"...this wrong."

Other ways of playing some chords:

..Fmaj7.... Amsus4 .Am ...G6 or
B:--1---------5-----1-----5--0--| The 1st G6 voicing is a bit crap,
G:--2---------7-----2-----4--0--| but Fmaj7 and Am and 2nd G6 are easier
D:--3---------7-----2-----x--0--| to play like this on an accoustic
A:--3---------7-----0-----5--2--| and sound better..
