[Verse 1]

Two jumps in a week
          Asus2                               E   Esus4  E
I bet you think that's pretty clever don't you boy
Flying on your motorcycle
Asus2                              E    Esus4  E   
Watching all the ground beneath you drop
You'd kill yourself for recognition
Asus2                      E    Esus4  E
Kill yourself to never ever stop
You broke another mirror
       Asus2                         E   Esus4  E
You're turning into something you are not


               F#m11  Asus2
Don't leave me high 
Don't leave me dry
               F#m11  Asus2
Don't leave me high 
Don't leave me dry


(Riff 1)


Drying up in conversation
Asus2                         E    Esus4  E
You will be the one who cannot talk
All your insides fall to pieces
Asus2                                E              Esus4  E  
You just sit there wishing you could still make love
They're the ones who'll hate you
         Asus2                          E         Esus4  E
When you think you've got the world all sussed out
They're the ones who'll spit at you
    Asus2                E       Esus4  E
You will be the one screaming out


[Interlude 2]

F#m11 Asus2  E  [2x]


It's the best thing that you ever had
    Asus2                        E  
The best thing that you ever, ever had
It's the best thing that you ever had
    Asus2                           E    Esus4  E
The best thing you ever had has gone away

[Chorus] x2

About the artist behind High And Dry Acoustic:

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.
