Am C Fmaj7 Cause yeah, everybody here's got somebody to lean on. [NOTE: last chord is strummed twice (just twice!)] And that's yer lot, enjoy! I think it's pretty accurate, although some of the words may be wrong (he seems to mumble a bit in the verse). Spot any mistakes, just email me. Also give me a shout if you want another Coldplay song as I know them (not in quite so much detail though) or if you have any tab for me, I love anything. Oh, I also have msn messenger to if you just wanna chat. ============================================== Tabbed by John McManus ( ==============================================
