A Rush of Blood to the Head - Coldplay

 

Questions, comments, suggestions - k_ekakia@hotmail.com

 

Initially, I wasn't that big on this song, but after awhile it grew on me and

became one of my favorite Coldplay songs, ever. The actual version has an extra

string tuned to D from what I can hear. This version is as accurate as I could

get it using standard tuning, and it's quite easy with only one barre.

 

Tuning (EADGBE)

Am (x02210)

C/G (332010)

Em (022000)

F (xx3211)

FÄ7(#11) (xx3200)

D7 (xx0212)

BbÄ7 (xx3335)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My strumming for each stanza chord: down,down,down,down,up,down,up,down,

(little pause)up,down,up

 

My strumming for each chorus chord: down (x8)

 

In any case, you'll figure it out.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Am C/G

He said I'm gonna buy this place and burn it down

 

Em Am

I'm gonna put it six feet underground

 

Am C/G

He said "I'm gonna buy this place and watch it fall

 

Em Am

Stand here beside me baby in the crumbling walls

 

(The Am|C/G|Em|Am section occurs two more times)

 

Oh I'm gonna buy this place and start a fire

Stand here until I fill all your heart's desires

Because I'm gonna buy this place and see it burn

Do back the things it did to you in return

 

(Add an extra Am here)

 

F FÄ7(#11) x2

Ah ah ah, ah ah ah...

 

Am|C/G|Em|Am x2

He said I'm gonna buy a gun and start a war

If you can tell me something worth fighting for

Oh and I'm gonna buy this place that's what I said

Blame it upon a rush of blood to the head

 

F

Honey

 

F D7

All the movements you're starting to make

 

D7 F

See me crumble and fall on my face

 

F D7

And I know the mistakes that I made

 

D7 BbÄ7 F

See it all disappear without a trace.

 

F D7

And they call as they beckon you on

 

D7 BbÄ7 Am

They said start as you mean to go on

 

Am|C/G|Em

 

Am

Start as you mean to go on

 

(Okay, that's it. You just repeat the same chords for the next stanza and

chorus, and so on. At the end of the song there are some nifty chords, but I'm

not sure how to explain them.)

 

 

He said "I'm gonna buy this place and see it go

Stand here beside my baby, watch the orange glow

Some will laugh and some just sit and cry

But you just sit down there and you wonder why

 

So I'm gonna buy a gun and start a war

If you can tell me something worth fighting for

And I'm gonna buy this place that's what I said

Blame it upon a rush of blood to the head

Oh to the head

 

(Add extra Am here, again)

 

Honey

All the movements you're starting to make

See me crumble and fall on my face

And I know the mistakes that I made

See it all disappear without a trace.

And they call as they beckon you on

They said start as you mean to go on

As you mean to go on, as you mean to go on

 

So meet me by the bridge,

Oh meet me by the lane

When am I going to see

That pretty face again

 

Meet me on the road

Meet me where I said

Blame it all upon

A rush of blood to the head
