Don’t haunt me 
Am
Don't hurt me

D                      Am
Gather up the lost and sold
          D               Am
Into your arms, into your arms
D                 Am
Gather up the pitiful
          D               Am
Into your arms, into your arms
D                 Am
What seems impossible
          D               Am
Into your arms, into your arms
D                     Am
I think I have had my fill
          D               Am
Into your arms, into your arms
          D               Am
Into your arms, into your arms

Bm                           Fmaj7   Cmaj7
I think I should give up the ghost
          D               Am
Into your arms, into your arms
          D               Am
Into your arms, into your arms
          D               Am
Into your arms, into your arms
          D               Am
Into your arms, into your arms





Throughout the song, guitar 2 is mostly panned right, guitar 3 to the left.
Sometimes they are playing the same thing and sometimes they aren't.
Both guitars have rhythmic variations on what is tabbed, and sometimes some
notes are missed.

About the artist behind Give Up The Ghost:

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.
