                                             Paul Weller - Above The Clouds
                                      Paul Weller        
                                         1992
 

This is based on the acoustic version which was played on Later with

Towards the end of the chorus and during the Coda there's a chord I 
can't quite work out, I play it as a B7 which sounds okay but Paul plays 
something else. Not sure what though. F#m/B or Bsus4 (x244xx) sound okay as
well. If you can work it out let me know so I can adjust the tab. 

                   Chords:

Emaj7        (076444)   Emaj7*       (xx999-11) 
Amaj7        (x07654)   Emaj7**      (xx9897)
F#m7         (242222)
Abm7         (464444)
B7           (x2120x) or F#m/B       (x242xx)
C#m          (x46654)
A            (577655)
B            (799877)

When playing Emaj7 you'll want to hit the low E string twice before playing
it so something like this:

        e-----------------4---------------------------------------------|
        B-----------------4---------------------------------------------|
        G-----------------4---------------------------------------------|
        D-----------------6---------------------------------------------|
        A-----------------7---------------------------------------------|
        E-------0----0----0---------------------------------------------|

Also the last three chords in the outro goes something like this:

        e------11-------7-------4---------------------------------------|
        B------9--------9-------4h5p4-----------------------------------|
        G------9--------8-------4---------------------------------------|
        D------9--------9-------6---------------------------------------|
        A-----------------------7---------------------------------------|
        E-----------------------0---------------------------------------|


Intro:   | Emaj7          | Amaj7    | Emaj7          | Amaj7    |
    
         | Emaj7          | Amaj7    | Emaj7          | Emaj7*  Emaj7**  ||


            Emaj7            Amaj7           Emaj7          Amaj7
Verse 1:    Autumn blew it's leaves at me,
            Emaj7              Amaj7         Emaj7          Amaj7
            Threatening winter as I walked,
            Emaj7         Amaj7              Emaj7          Amaj7
            Summer always goes so quick,
            Emaj7           Amaj7            Emaj7
            Barely stopping like my thoughts.


                  F#m7                  (F#m7) Abm7   F#m       Abm7
Chorus 1:   Which dip and spin and change so fast,
              F#m7          (F#m) Abm7   F#m7   B7           
            I have to wonder,                
                   Emaj7        Amaj7    Emaj7          
            will I last?                             

            Emaj7               Amaj7            Emaj7          Amaj7      
Verse 2:    Through the windows of a train,
              Emaj7                  Amaj7       Emaj7     Emaj7*  Emaj7**
            I caught reflections of a paper cup,
            Emaj7              Amaj7             Emaj7          Amaj7
            Hanging small in a pale blue sky,
            Emaj7         Amaj7                  Emaj7          
            Never knowing which way's up.     


            F#m7             (F#m7)  Abm7           
Chorus 2:   Above the clouds,           
                   F#m7         (F#m7) Abm7
            What's to be found?,
              F#m7           (F#m7)  Abm7   F#m7    B7
            I have to wonder,                  ooh
                      Emaj7         Amaj7   Emaj7
            will I be around?


         C#m                   F#m7
Bridge :    As my anger shouts,   at my own self doubt,
         C#m                    F#m7
            So a sadness creeps,     into my dreams,
         C#m                             F#m7
            When you're scared of living,     but afraid to die,
          A                            B               B
            I get scared of giving and I must find the faith to beat it, 
            Emaj7         Amaj7    Emaj7        
            Oh yeh,                 yeh yeh yeh.


           

               Emaj7(Hit Once)                 Emaj7          Amaj7
Verse 3:    It must be me that's rushing by,
            Emaj7             Amaj7            Emaj7          Amaj7
            Time just lingers on the wind,
            Emaj7                Amaj7         Emaj7          Amaj7  
            Bristlin' through my open fears,
              Emaj7            Amaj7           Emaj7          
            I wonder what it's goin' to bring.


Chorus 3:  As Chorus 2



          | Emaj7          | Amaj7    | Emaj7          | Amaj7       
 

            Emaj7             
Coda:       Run and hide, run and hide
             F#m7                 B7            | Emaj7         Amaj7(x2)
            I   catch the sail at evening's tide.
            Emaj7             
            Run and hide, run and hide

            I  catch the sail at evening's tide.
            Emaj7             
            Run and hide, run and hide
            F#m7                 B7             Emaj7         Amaj7
            I  catch the sail at evening's tide.
