Green Eyes Acoustic
BAND: Coldplay
SONG: Green Eyes
ALBUM: A Rush of Blood to the Head
E-MAIL: [email protected]

This is my first tab, and it's mostly based on another tab that, to my chagrin, I can't
access anymore. Thus, I cannot claim that this tab is my own, though I did make changes
to it. This is not how the song is played by the band, but it sounds very good for a
simple acoustic rendition. Comments, corrections, whimsical musings, etc. are welcome!

[11/09/07]: Realized I transcribed some chords incorrectly. Fixed.
[04/02/08]: Once again fixed chords (oh noes!) and added alternatives. Thanks to
Jimmyboy, supermancs, schroedersniper, 4tis, and mrevilguy for suggestions.

==== TUNING ====


| D |
| B |
| G |
| D |
| A |
| E |

The high E string should be tuned down a full step, so it is the same as the third fret
on the B string. This can also be played satisfactorily with standard tuning, if it is
your preference.

==== CHORDS ====

      G6   Dadd9   Am  Asus2   C    F7M

The strumming pattern is very simple, and is best acquired from listening to the song
and trying to play along with it. Roughly speaking, it's something like this:

G6         Dadd9      Am              Asus2

And no, those aren't protons and neutrons, they're strokes. (Smile if you get that!)
The chords as given above are my suggestions. Alternatively, you can use Am7 (002010)
instead of Asus2, and you can play both halves of the chorus using the same chord
progression (i.E. replacing F7M with Dadd9).

Capo 2.

[Verse 1]

G6       Dadd9      Am     Asus2
   Honey, you are a rock
G6       Dadd9    Am     Asus2
   Upon  which I stand,
G6       Dadd9        Am     Asus2
   And I come here to talk,
G6           Dadd9    Am     Asus2
   I hope you under - stand.

[Chorus 1]

Am                       C
The green eyes, yeah the spotlight
       G6        Dadd9
Shines upon you.
  Am             C
And how could anybody
 G6        Dadd9
Deny you?
Am                    C
   I came here with a load,

                     G6     F7M       C
And it feels so much ligh - ter now I met you.
Am                      C
   And honey you should know
                   G6     F7M     C
That I could never go     on without you.
Green eyes...

[Verse 2]

G6       Dadd9        Am     Asus2
   Honey, you are the sea
G6       Dadd9    Am     Asus2
   Upon  which I float,
G6       Dadd9        Am     Asus2
   And I came here to talk
G6         Dadd9      Am     Asus2
   I think you should know.

[Chorus 2]

    Am                      C
That green eyes, you're the one that I
          G6   Dadd9
Wanted to fi - ind.
   Am               C
Anyone who tried to deny you
                     G6   Dadd9
Must be out of their mi - ind.
Am                       C
   'Cus came here with a load,

                     G6     F7M         C
And it feels so much ligh - ter since I met you.
Am                      C
   And honey you should know
                   G6     F7M     C
That I could never go     on without you.
Green eyes...


      G6                 Am
Oh oh oh oh     oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh


G6       Dadd9      Am     Asus2
   Honey, you are a rock
G6       Dadd9    Am (strum and let ring)
   Upon  which I stand...

About the artist behind Green Eyes Acoustic:

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]
