Swallowed In The Sea
Coldplay - Swallowed in the Sea




There are already about four versions of this song on here and no one's
gotten it quite right yet!!! Here's how it's played.


TUNING:

-Eb-
-B-
-G-
-D-
-A-
-E-

Standard tuning with high E 1/2 step down. (same tuning as another
Coldplay song, "Yellow")


I've tabbed the chord fingerings first. The progression is after.
Play the sixth string with your THUMB. Otherwise it's much harder
to fret the minor chords.

Aside from the thumb fingerings on the sixth string, the major chords
are usually played with the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th fingers. You CAN play
them with the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd however. Minor chords use thumb, 1st, 3rd, and 4th 
fingers.

CHORDS: (remember the high E [first string] is tune ONE HALF
         step down to Eb. the other 5 strings are standard tuning)

B: -0-  F#: -0-  E: -0-  Abm: -0-  C#m: -0-
   -0-      -0-     -0-       -0-       -0-
   -8-      -3-     -1-       -4-       -9-
   -9-      -4-     -2-       -6-       -11-
   -9-      -4-     -2-       -6-       -11-
   -7-      -2-     -0-       -4-       -9-


Play around with these chords, then you can start putting together the song. It's 
actually quite easy!!!

First verse on the album version is only vocals and synthesizer, but this is the 
progression he plays on the acoustic guitar version.

[Verse]
(Quietly)
     B             F#       E                  B
You cut me down a tree And brought it back to me
     F#                  E         E            B
And that's what made me see Where I was going wrong
     B            F#       E               B
You put me on a shelf And kept me for yourself
      F#            E           E           B
I can only blame myself You can only blame me

[Chorus]
     E               B       Abm          F#
And I could write a song A hundred miles long
       E                B        B               F#
Well, that's where I belong And you belong with me
     E                B       Abm            F#
And I could write it down Or spread it all around
     E                 B         B               F#          B
Get lost and then get found Or swallowed in the sea............

[Verse]
(Louder)
     B           F#       E              B
You put me on a line And hung me out to dry
     F#                  E     E            B
And darling that's when I Decided to go to see you
     B              F#      E             B
You cut me down to size And opened up my eyes
 F#         E         E           B
Made me realize What I could not see

[Chorus]
     E               B        Abm                   F#
And I could write a book The one they'll say that shook
     E                  B      B                  F#
The world, and then it took It took it back from me
     E                B        Abm           F#
And I could write it down Or spread it all around
     E                 B        B                    F#
Get lost and then get found And you'll come back to me
    E                 B
Not swallowed in the sea



[Bridge]
(C#m E B F#) x4


*(The rest of the chords are basically just a repeat of the
  earlier progression)

[Chorus]
     E               B      Abm           F#
And I could write a song A hundred miles long
      E                 B        B               F#
Well, that's where I belong And you belong with me
       E                    B     Abm            F#
The streets you're walking on A thousand houses long
      E                 B        B               F#
Well, that's where I belong And you belong with me


         E             B         Abm             F#
Oh what good is it to live with nothing left to give,
    E              B        B               F#
Forget but not forgive, Not loving all you see?
          E                    B     Abm            F#
Oh the streets you're walking on A thousand houses long
     E                 B        B               F#
Well that's where I belong And you belong with me
      E               B
Not swallowed in the sea

[Outro]
 Abm             F#      E               B
You belong with me Not swallowed in the sea
       Abm              F#     E               B
Yeah, you belong with me Not swallowed in the sea.....

About the artist behind Swallowed In The Sea:

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]
