Thanks to Zachary (1st version of the tab) for providing the template... hope he doesn't mind.

Guitar's in standard tuning... a rarity for Coldplay, I must say.  Still some
different chords though...I'm giving them semi-standard names because I have no
clue what they are really called.

The Chords:

B    B*   G#*   G#*add5  Fmajor  E   
e| 7    7     0       0       2     0
b| 7    7     0       0       2     0
G| 8    7     4       6       3     1
D| 9    8     6       x       4     2
A| 9    9     6       6       4     2
E| 7    7     4       4       2     0



Verse 1:

B             B*
From the very start, it

G#*    (G#*add5)
Came a-part and,

B*             B*     G#*
Broke up into pieces and...

Fmaj      B                   B*
There's a chance I could have missed it,

G#*      (G#*add5)
It could risked it,

(Fmaj) B               B*      G#*
But I put myself into your hands,

B    
 Cos you're not just anyone,
                            
                        G#* 
 You're a ladder to the sun, 
                             
                       B        
 Oh, You're not just anyone,    
                            
                       G#*  
 You're a ladder to the sun.

Verse 2:

B             B*
I could run my courses and ah,

G#*    (G#*add5)
Opposing forces and ah,

B               B*      G#*
Men are just mortals, and...

B                               B*
Oh If you want me then you can have me,

G#*           (G#*add5)
C'mon take me, oh baby grab me,

B                               B*   G#*
Cos If you want me then you can have me,

B
 Cos you're not just anyone,

G#*
 You're a ladder to the sun,

B
 Oh You're not just anyone,

G#*
 You're my ladder to the sun.



E                
Oh now boy, what you may not turn?

Fmaj
You set a course and she couldn't run,

E                                   (slide up to B again.)
Oh now boy what you may not turn...

(1st instrumental -- listen to the song for timing)   B   B*  B   B*

Verse 3:

E              
I had it all and I risked it,

C#m     Fmaj
And it could risk it,

E                            C#m   Fmaj
I had it all and, and I risked it all,

B
Then I risked it all.

( 2nd instrumental -- listen to the song to get the timing right -- alternates
between  B  and   G#* )

B
And I risked it all,

B*
A ladder to the,

G#*
A ladder to the sun,

(G#*add5)    
A ladder to the,

B
A ladder to the sun,

B*
A ladder to the,

G#*
A ladder to the sun,

B 
I had it all and I risked it all,

B*
A ladder to the,

G#*
A ladder to the sun,

(G#*add5)
A ladder to the,

B
A ladder to the sun,

B*
A ladder to the,

G#*
A ladder to the sun,

E   B   Fmaj [note, to make this transition easier,
                                  use (top to bottom) 024422 as your "B" chord.]

I had it all and I risk it all,

E   
And I risked it all,

B        Fmaj        E
Ohh, and I risked it all,

B
I had it all,

Fmaj         E
and I risked it all,

B         Fmaj...          
Ohh, and I risked it all...

B (strum entire chord slower)
A ladder to the sun.

About the artist behind Ladder To The Sun:

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]
