Coldplay - Help is round the corner

This is one of my favorite songs to sing and play on the acoustic. It's the Coldplay bside Help Is Round The Corner! Normally this song is in open C# tuning just like God Put A Smile Upon Your Face, but I figured out a way to get almost the exact same results with a capo and tuning your E down to C#. Ok so first tune your low E to C#. Now grab your capo and put it on reverse, so that the first five EBGDA strings are capo'd on the first fret. Make sure you have the low C# uncapo'd and that everything rings out clearly without buzzing. Notes are NOT tabbed relative to the capo! So 1's on the first 5 strings are opens on the capo. Now here are the chords! E|--1--------1--------1--------1--------1-------x--------| B|--2--------2--------2--------2--------2-------6--------| G|--1--------3--------1--------3--------3-------6--------| D|--3--------3--------3--------4--------1-------6--------| A|--4--------4--------4--------x--------1-------8--------| C#|--0--------0--------4--------5--------2-------7--------| C# C#6 C#/F F#M7 D#7sus2 C#/G# C# C#6 C# C#6

Oh, what a D#7sus2state I'm in F#M7 Oh, come on, come on Why won't it D#7sus2just sink in?

Oh, C#my head won't stop C#6aching And I'm C#sat here, licking my C#6wounds And I'm C#shattered, but it really doesn't C#6matter Cause my C#rescue is gonna be here C#6soon
C#/F F#M7 Oh, come on, come on
Oh, what a D#7sus2state I'm in F#M7 Oh, come on, come on Why won't it D#7sus2just sink in?
C# C#/F C#/G# That help is just around the corner for us C# C#/F C#/G# C# C#/F C#/G# That help is just around the corner for us C# D#7sus2 F#M7 C#/G# C# That help is just around the corner for us I'd say it's pretty accurate, although I had to compromise a bit with the C#/G# chord, because the actual chord in this tuning would be impossible to play. :( Enjoy! =D
