This is the basic piano riff, which is modified a little throughout the intro.
(i.e. by leaving out one of the chords or adding one in, you'll have to listen
for the little changes)



Verse

C         Bbadd6   Dm
Sleight of        hand
F    Gm  F/A  Bb
Jump  off the end
Bb       Am    C     Bb
Into a clear lake
C   Bbadd6  Dm  
No one    around  
Dm

C      Bbadd6   Dm
Just dragonflies
F    Gm  F/A  Bb
Flying to the side
Bb   Am       C       Bb
No one gets hurt
C    Bbadd6       Dm  
You've done nothing wrong  
Dm

Then an intro between the verses.

A third verse the same as above, then the last two lines of the verse.

C    Bbadd6   Dm
Slide your hand
F    Gm  F/A  Bb
Jump off the end
Bb   Am       C       Bb
The water's clear
C    Bbadd6       Dm  
And innocent  
Dm
Bb   Am       C       Bb
The water's clear
C    Bbadd6       Dm    
Dm
And innocent



Then there's a change at 3:34

About the artist behind Codex:

Radiohead are an English alternative rock band from Oxfordshire. The band is composed of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, rhythm guitar, piano, electronics), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, other instruments), Ed O'Brien (guitar, backing vocals), Colin Greenwood (bass guitar, synthesisers) and Phil Selway (drums, percussion). Radiohead have released seven albums and have sold over 23 million records throughout their career.[1]

Radiohead released their first single, "Creep", in 1992, and their debut album, Pablo Honey, in 1993. Though initially unsuccessful, "Creep" was a worldwide hit when reissued a year later. Radiohead's popularity in the United Kingdom increased with the release of their second album, The Bends (1995). The band's textured guitar atmospheres and Yorke's falsetto singing were warmly received by critics and fans. With the release of OK Computer (1997), Radiohead were propelled to greater fame worldwide. Featuring an expansive sound and themes of alienation from the modern world, OK Computer has often been acclaimed as a landmark record of the 1990s.

The release of Kid A (2000) and Amnesiac (2001) saw Radiohead reach their peak popularity, although the albums divided critical opinion. This period marked a change in Radiohead's musical style, with their incorporation of avant-garde electronic music, Krautrock and jazz influences. Hail to the Thief (2003), Radiohead's sixth album, blended styles from throughout the band's career, mixing guitar-driven rock, electronic influences and contemporary lyrics. Radiohead subsequently left their record label, EMI, and released their seventh album, In Rainbows (2007), through their own website as a digital download for which customers selected their own price.
