Ed Sheeran - The a team

A Team by Ed Sheeran [final revision] Notes: (1) the original key for this song is A, so you can either play the chords with a capo on the 2nd fret, which allows for nice open chords in G, C, Em, Am and D positions, or play in the key of A directly (2) to make it easy for you, I wrote the song twice, once in the key of A and once in the key of G, assuming a capo on the second fret; but you can just play it in G without a capo too and it may suit your voice better (3) the arrangement uses passing chords which I put in parenthesis such as (E/ G#) or (D/F#) [or in the key of G (D/F#) or (C)]; these are as they sound, used in passing and are not absolutely necessary, as you will find if you play along with the song (4) this song is a little tricky to notate matching the lyrics, chords and rhythm, so it is pretty important to listen along to get the timing right KEY OF A Intro (chords only) A (D/F#) A (E/G#) F#m (D/F#) A.. A (E/G#) White lips, pale face, breathing in F#m (D/F#) snowflakes, burnt lungs, sour A (E/G#) taste... A (E/G#) Light's gone, day's end, struggling to F#m (D/F#) pay rent, long nights, strange
Amen...
BmAnd they say she's in the ClassD A Team, Stuck in her Adaydream, Been this way since E18, but lately, Her fBmace seems slowly sinking, Dwasting, Crumbling like paAstries, And they scream, EThe worst things in life come free to us,
Cos we're jF#must under the uDpperhand, AAnd go mad for a couple of grams, F#mAnd she don't wDant to go Aoutside tonight, And in a F#mpipe she flies to the MotherlDand, Or sAells love to another man, F#mIt's too cDold outside, A (E/G#) ..For angels to F#mfly, D A (E/G#) ... Angels to F#mfly, D A (E/G#) ...
A (E/G#) Ripped gloves, raincoat, tried to swim and F#m (D/F#) stay afloat, dry house, wet A (E/G#) clothes... A (E/G#) Loose change, bank notes, weary-eyed, dry F#m (D/F#) throat, call girl, no
