How to Play:

I transcribed these chords by watching and listening to the video of
this really talented (and very pretty) street performer named
Chelsea Williams doing a live solo cover of Damien Rice's Cannonball.

Em7 Cadd9/G G D/F#

Em7                    Cadd9/G      G         D/F#
there's still a little bit of your taste in my mouth
Em7                    Cadd9/G      G           D/F#
there's still a little bit of you laced with my doubt
Em7                 Cadd9/G   G  D/F#                 
it's still a little hard to say 
             Cadd9/G
what's going on
Em7                    Cadd9/G      G        D/F#
there's still a little bit of your ghost your witness
Em7                     Cadd9/G       G             D/F#
there's still a little piece of your face i haven't kissed
Em7               Cadd9/G      G 
you step a little closer each day
   D/F#               Cadd9/G
so i can't see what's going on
G      Cadd9/G       D  Dsus4
stones taught me to fly
G     Cadd9/G      D Dsus4
love taught me to lie
G     Cadd9/G     D
life taught me to die
            Em7     Cadd9/G
so it's not hard to fall
         Cadd9/G             Em7 
when you float like a cannonball

Cadd9/G G D/F#

Em7                    Cadd9/G     G         D/F#
there's still a little bit of your song in my ear
Em7                    Cadd9/G     G              D/F#
there's still a little bit of your words i long to hear
Em7               Cadd9/G     G
you step a little closer each day
     D/F#                       Cadd9/G
so close that i can't see what's going on
G      Cadd9/G       D  Dsus4
stones taught me to fly
G     Cadd9/G      D  Dsus4
love taught me to lie
G     Cadd9/G      D
life taught me to die
            Em7     Cadd9/G
so it's not hard to fall
         Cadd9/G
when you float like a cannon
G      Cadd9/G       D Dsus4
stones taught me to fly
G    Cadd9/G       D Dsus4
love taught me to cry
             G
so come on courage
      Cadd9/G     D
teach me to be shy
                Cadd9/G 
'cause it's not hard to fall
          Cadd9/G            Em7 
when you float like a cannonball
