This is pretty risky, trying to tabulate "my iron lung," which is one of 
Radioheads best songs for that awesome breakdown/chorus.  I can almost 
guarantee you it should be different, but then again, Radiohead doesn't 
really seem like the usual barre chord sort...

Both of the previously posted intros work pretty good, depending on what 
type of equipment you have.  The rest goes something like:


then verse one: (the verses have continual feedback. you'll have to 
figure out the tones)

bass plays G              C
          "faith.  you're driving me"
         "away,       you do it every day,"

        "you don't mean it but it hurts like hell."

verse one riff:
neck mute    v   v    v  v  v     
  "my brain...       says I'm receiving"
       pain...       a  lack  of oxygen"

        "from my life support, my iron lung..."

--intro riff again--

the second verse is exactly like the first except there's a second 
guitar now that plays these parts:

verse two:
 "we're    too young to fall asleep"
           too      cynical  to speak"

(don't play the riff that should go here)
 "we are losing it        can't you tell?"

"a scratch        our e ter nal itch"
               our 20th century bitch"

        "we are grateful for, our iron__   lung."

--intro again, then (the fun part)--


(this is what I play, it's not perfect, but it's a start.  listen to the 
album for the rythm. there's a lot of sliding and noise in here. it's 
pretty easy to reproduce...play this twice for a chorus)

  (^=1/4 bend)

-x-x--9-8-7-6-5-5-5-4-4-4- repeat, then two bars of intro.

--verse three-- 
suck. suck your teenage thumb, toilet-trained and dumb.

       when the   powr runs out we'll   just  hum.

(play the second part of the verse like the second part of the vs.2)
    this. this is our new song,
    just like the last one,
    a total waste of time,
    my iron lung.  

(bridge/chorus again 4x. on third and fourth time, there's a little 
solo-type thing. listen to the album to see how it's placed:)

solo 1:
  G G     G G     C C                 E E     E E

  G G     G G    C C          E E    E E    E

real bridge (not to be confused with that other thing I'm calling a 

I'm getting tired, so I'm not going to draw a bunch of the same chord.  
You can figure out the rythm:
     if you're frightened you can be frightened you can be that's ok

then the chorus 4 more times and you're done.  The sencond time on the 
chorus there is yet another solo, but, in typical Radiohead fashion, 
it's not that tough:
('b'=1/2 bend)

  G G          G G         C C                           E E

                                          (scratch and make noise
          E E                              for one more bar.)
----------8__ 10-8--------------------------------------------------

and you're done. I love this song, and when I play it this way it pretty 
much rocks.  Look on the previous postings for the intro riffs (one is 
good if you don't have a tone-thingy--I don't, but the other's probably 
more authentic.)  If I've missed anything or screwed it up, write me at
