Glass Of Water Chords

Coldplay

Hey folks. Glass of Water is one of my favorite Coldplay
songs, but I was never satisfied with the sound of it on
my guitar. While it was very good, I wanted the verse
chords to sound exactly like that in the song. I messed
around a bit, and then there it was: the perfect solution.

This version sounds great in my opinion. Hope you all like
it.

==== CHORDS =========

This is the way I play the verse. Just repeat over and
over. For those that may want it, I've included the
strumming pattern I use

CAPO 5

==== VERSE ONE =========
A         Aadd9  AM7     A
Scared of losing all the time
   Aadd9    AM7  A
He wrote it in a letter
   Aadd9 AM7       A    Aadd9  AM7
He was a friend of mine
A        Aadd9     AM7      A
He heard you could see your future
  Aadd9  AM7      A
Inside a glass of water
    Aadd    AM7     A     Aadd9  AM7
The ripples and the lines
       Aadd9
And he asked
G                            Aadd9
"Will I see heaven in mine?"


==== FILL =========
A  Aadd9  AM7


==== VERSE TWO =========
A       Aadd9    AM7    A
That is just the way it was
Aadd9   AM7      A
Nothing could be better
    Aadd9   AM7  A   Aadd9  AM7
And nothing ever was
   A        Aadd9   AM7      A
Oh they say you can see your future
  Aadd9  AM7      A
Inside a glass of water
    Aadd9   AM7     A      Aadd9  AM7
The riddles and the rhymes
G
Will I see heaven in mine?
Aadd9
Oh oh oh oh I


==== CHORUS =========
A   G#sus4 F#m G
Son
      A   G#sus4 F#m G
don't ask
        A         G#sus4 F#m   G
Neither half full     or empty
       A     G#sus4 F#m G
Is the glass
A     G#sus4 F#m G
Cling
       A    G#sus4 F#m G
to the mast
           A    G#sus4 F#m    G
Spend your whole life  living
       E
in the past
      Aadd9
Going nowhere fast


==== FILL =========
A  Aadd9  AM7


==== VERSE THREE =========
A     Aadd9    AM7  A
So he wrote it on a wall
    Aadd9 AM7    A
The hollowest of halos
   Aadd9 AM7   A   Aadd9  AM7
Is no ha-lo at all
A   Aadd9  AM7     A
Television selling plastic
Aadd9 AM7     A
figur-ines of leaders
   Aadd9 AM7        A   Aadd9  AM7
Saying   nothing at all
        Aadd9
And you chime
G
Stars in heaven align
Aadd9
Oh oh oh oh I 


==== CHORUS =========
A   G#sus4 F#m G
Son
      A   G#sus4 F#m G
don't ask
        A         G#sus4 F#m   G
Neither half full     or empty
       A     G#sus4 F#m G
Is the glass
A     G#sus4 F#m G
Cling
       A    G#sus4 F#m G
to the mast
           A    G#sus4 F#m    G
Spend your whole life  living
       E
in the past
      Aadd9
Going nowhere fast


==== FILL =========
A G#sus4 F#m G

(End on A)


==== END =========
A                                  Aadd9
Oh what are we drinking when we're done?
E          Aadd9
Glasses of water

(End with Aadd9)
