City of Blinding Lights Guitar Tab

Here you are, from this evening's Top of the Pops performance. I managed to pull the main riffs, but my mp3 is really choppy so I wasn't able to get a good sequence.

Anyways here it is:

Enjoy!

Cool, thanks! Glad you're able to concentrate on the good stuff tonight, while all that bad stuff is going on about the hoax.

Polar opposites tonight!

I think the song is in A, but just tuned down half a step.

Hey guys...here's my version of COBL from the rehearsals of the BBC show. I'm not exactly sure about the lyrics and chords, but I'll give it a shot and I'm waiting for suggestions and corrections

CITY OF BLINDING LIGHTS

intro: A E D


A E
The more you see the less you know
D E
The less you find out as you grow.......
A E D
I knew much more then than I do know
A E
Neon heart, day glow eyes,
D E
City lit from fireflies
A E
They're advertising in the skies
D
For people like us....

CHORUS

C D
And I miss you when you're not around
C D
I'm getting ready to leave the ground
E D
Ouuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuu ouuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuu
E D
Ouuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuu ouuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuu
E D A
Oh you look so BEAU-TI-FUL tonight...
A E D
In the city of blinding lights

Don't smile before you laugh
Look ugly in a photograph
Flash photo, purple eyes
As the camera can't see
I've seen you when you walk on the plane
I've seen you in the clothes you make
I see the beauty inside of me
What happened to the beauty I had inside of me

CHORUS

And I miss you when you're not around
I'm getting ready to leave the ground
Ouuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuu ouuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuu
Oh you look so BEAU-TI-FUL, tonight.....!
Tonight.......tonight
In the city of Blinding Lights......

E D E D A
Time...time....time...won't leave me as I am
E D A
But time...won't take the boy out of this man

Oh you look so BEAU-TI-FUL tonight
Oh you look so BEAU-TI-FUL tonight
Oh you look so BEAU-TI-FUL tonight...
(Tonight...tonight
In the city of blinding lights)


ENJOY IT
