                “Grey Room” by Damien Rice off the Album “9”

No capo, standard tuning.

Chords:

C/G:  332010
F:    133211
Em:   022000
G:    355433

Notes on strumming:

There are lots of hammer-ons and pull-offs in this song.  In general:

When he plays the C/G chord, he does the hammer-ons and pull-offs with the open D string 
the E note on the second fret.

When he plays the F chord, he does the hammer-ons and pull-offs with the open G string 
the A note on the second fret.

During the verse, right before you change from the F chord back to the C/G, he does a 
pull-off with the F chord like it's described above.

If you want to keep the F bass note on that F chord, you could play it with your thumb 
I like to do to keep a nice, full sound [plus it's cool to play with your thumb 
 So it goes like this:

C/G chord hammer-on:

E|--0-0-----|
B|--1-1-----|
G|--0-0-----|
D|--0h2-----|
A|--3-3-----|
E|--3-3-----|

C/G chord pull-off:

E|--0-0-----|
B|--1-1-----|
G|--0-0-----|
D|--2p0-----|
A|--3-3-----|
E|--3-3-----|

F chord hammer-on:

E|--1-1-----|
B|--1-1-----|
G|--0h2-----|
D|--3-3-----|
A|--3-3-----|
E|--1-1-----|

F chord pull-off:

E|--1-1-----|
B|--1-1-----|
G|--2p0-----|
D|--3-3-----|
A|--3-3-----|
E|--1-1-----|

I tried to get the chord placements right with the lyrics, but they might be off a bit, 
you know how it goes...

Intro:  C/G     F

	    C/G     					         F
Well I've been here before, I've sat on the floor, in a grey grey room,

Where I stay in all day, I don't eat, but I play, with this grey grey food,

Desole, If someone is prayin', then I might break out,

Desole, Even if I scream, I can't scream that loud,
Em      F           Em 	            F	     Em			 F
I'm all alone again,  crawling back home again, just stuck by the phone again

[Right around 1:28 he sneaks in a G note on the third fret, first string]
