VERSE 1:
      C#m
Was a long and dark December 

From the rooftops I remember
          A           F#m
There was snow, white snow 
  C#m
Clearly I remember from the windows 
                            A
They were watching while we froze 
        F#m
Down below 

CHORUS:
          A
When the future architecture 
     B                     C#m
By a carnival of idiots on show 
               B
You better lie low 
       A    E   C#m       F#m B  C#m
If you love me, won't you let me know 

VERSE 2:
      C#m
Was a long and dark December 
When the banks became cathedrals 
        A            F#m
And the frost became gone 
 C#m
Creased cut stones and bibles 
Are all out to fade their rifles 
         A             F#m
And the cross was held aloft 

CHORUS:
A
There in me and I'm  
         B
When I'm dead and hit the ground 
         C#m       B
Legs are cold, unfold 
       A    E   C#m       F#m B  C#m
If you love me, won't you let me know 

GUITAR SOLO:

C#m C#m A F#m  x2

CHORUS:
        A
I don't wanna be a soldier 
       B
With a captain of some sinking ship 
     C#m
With snow 
    B
Far below 
            A    E   C#m      F#m B  C#m
So, if you love me, why'd you let me go 

OUTRO:
          E            A      G#m      A
I took my love down to Violet Hill 
        C#m     F#m   A   
There we sat    in    snow 
         C#m  F#m     A         G#m
All that time she was silenced still 
    E      A    E   C#m       F#m  B    C#m   F#m
So, if you love me, won't you let  me   know?
E      A    E   C#m       F#m B  C#m
If you love me, won't you let me know?

About the artist behind Violet Hill Chords:

Coldplay are an English alternative rock band formed in London in 1997. The group comprises vocalist/pianist/guitarist Chris Martin, lead guitarist Jonny Buckland, bassist Guy Berryman, and drummer/multi-instrumentalist Will Champion. Coldplay has been one of the most commercially successful bands of the new millennium, selling over 30 million albums. The band is also known for its hit singles, such as "Yellow", "Speed of Sound", the Grammy Award-winning "Clocks" and their latest single, "Viva La Vida".

Coldplay achieved worldwide fame with the release of their single "Yellow", followed by the success of their debut album, Parachutes (2000), which was nominated for the Mercury Prize. Both Parachutes and its follow-up, A Rush of Blood to the Head (2002), were released to commercial success; the latter was named NME's Album of the Year. X&Y (2005) received a generally positive reception. From December 2006, the band worked with producer Brian Eno on their fourth studio album, Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends, which was released on 12 June 2008.

Coldplay's early material was compared to acts such as Jeff Buckley,[1] U2, and Travis.[2] Since the release of Parachutes, Coldplay have drawn influence from other sources, including Echo and the Bunnymen[1] and George Harrison[3] on A Rush of Blood to the Head and Johnny Cash and Kraftwerk for X&Y.[4] Coldplay have been an active supporter of various social and political causes, such as Oxfam's Make Trade Fair campaign and Amnesty International. The group has also performed at various charity projects such as Band Aid 20, Live 8, and the Teenage Cancer Trust.[5]
