How Can You Be Sure?

Radiohead

 

 

Verse:

E B E A2->A

Seen all good things and bad

E B E A2

running down the hill

E B E A

All so battered and brought to the

E B E A2

ground

E B E A2->A

I am hungry again

E B E A2

I am drunk again

E B E A

With all the money I owe to my

E B E

friends

 

Pre-chorus:

A G#m F#m E5

When I'm like this

B A G#m F#m

How can you be smiling, saying

 

Chorus (inhale deeply!):

E B E A

Ho-o-w can you be sure?

E B E A

Ho-o-w can you be sure?

 

Verse:

If you walk out that door, will I see you again

if so much of me lies in your eyes?

I am hungry again, I am drunk again

With all the money I owe to my friends

 

Pre-Chorus

 

Chorus x2

Chorus (instrumental)

Chorus w/ "I don't want you anymore" vocals overdubbed

 

end

 

Notes on the chords:

 

I'm not sure what to call the B that I hear in the song, but I think it

might be a B5. It's fingered thusly; essentially just a power chord.

e--X---

B--0---

G--4---

D--4---

A--2---

E--X---

 

Also, the A2->A is accomplished through a hammer-on, like so:

e--0---2-2

B--0---0h2

G--2---2-2

D--2---2-2

A--0---0-0

E--0---0-0

 

I think the G#m employed in the chorus is played with some open strings:

e--0

B--0

G--4

D--6

A--6

E--x

 

And finally, the E5 in the chorus is played like an open D, but barred up 2

frets (kinda like how you might play an Eb)

e--x

B--5

G--4

D--2

A--2

E--0
