Coldplay - Violet hill

Artist: Coldplay Song: Violet Hill Album: Viva La Vida... Made by Maxime Legault (insomniak40@hotmail.com) Hi everyone! So I made up this ACOUSTIC VERSION to help people who would like to play a Coldplay song, so it's not the album version (since it's basically a piano song...), but feel free for any comments or suggestions !!! So enjoy!!! EDIT AUGUST 11th 2010: Changed the lyrics, they are now accurate, they are from Coldplay's official website. Standard Tuning with Capo on 2nd fret Chords: Bm ========== x24432 Bsus2 ======= x24422 G =========== 3x0003 Dmaj7sus4/G = 3x0023 Em ========== 022000 Em6 ========= 022020 Em(2) ======= 079987 A =========== x02220 F#m ========= 244222 D =========== xx0232 or 200232 F# (note) === 2xxxxx EASY VERSION: VERSE 1:
Was a Bmlong and dark December From the rooftops I remember There was Gsnow, white Emsnow ClBmearly I remember from the windows They were watching while we Gfroze Down belEmow
CHORUS:
When the fGuture's architectured By a Acarnival of idiots on Bmshow You'd better lie Alow If you Glove F#mme, Dwon’t yoBmu leAt mBme know?
VERSE 2:
Was a Bmlong and dark December When the banks became cathedrals And a Gfox became EmGod PBmriests clutched onto bibles
Hollowed out to fit their rifles
And the cGross was held Emaloft
CHORUS:
GBury me an armour When I’Am dead and hit the ground My nerves are Bmpoles that unfAroze If you Glove F#mme, Dwon’t yoBmu leAt mBme know?
GUITAR SOLO: Bm Bm G Em x2 (don't forget about the capo thing...it's 2 step higher so if you play without a capo, 3 a 5, 2 is a 7, etc...)

So it's pretty much all there. For the distorted guitar fill during the verses (instead playing the Em (and Em6 for the complex one)), you can play the last 4 chords written in the "guitar solo"... So enjoy !!! (and feel free for any suggestions)
