Ed Sheeran – The A Team

CAPO 2nd

slagje: | ^  ^v  v^v |

Zoals we in het instructie filmpje kunnen zien kunnen 
we steeds een aantal vingers laten staan tijdens het 
wisselen van de akkoorden. Zo spelen we de G met de ring-
vinger en pink in het derde hokje van de 1e en 2e snaar.
Bij het G/F# akkoord veranderen we alleen de bas. Dezelf-
de twee vingers blijven weer staan. Ook bij het spelen van
Em en C. Zo komen we uit op het onderstaande overzicht. In 
de pre-chorus gebruiken we voor C en G de gewone akkoorden.

Akkoorden:

G : 320033
G/F# : 2×0033
C : x32033
Em : 022033

D/F# : 2×0232

(inv sample)

[Intro]

| G | G | G | G/F# |     (1 slagje per maat)
| Em | C | G | G |

[Verse 1]

| G | G | G | G/F# |
White lips, pale face, breathing in snowflakes
| Em | C | G | G |
Burnt lungs, sour taste
| G | G | G | G/F# |
Light’s gone, day’s end, struggling to pay rent
| Em | C | G | G |
Long nights, strange men

[Pre-chorus]

| Am | C | G | D/F# | (gewone akkoorden gebruiken in pre chorus)   
(2 slagjes per maat)
And they say she’s in the Class A Team, stuck in her daydream
| Am | C |     (2 slagjes per maat)
Been this way since 18, but lately her face seems, slowly sinking, wasting
| G | D/F# |     (2 slagjes per maat)
Crumbling like pastries, and they scream the worst things in life come free to us

[Chorus 1]

| Em | C | G | G |
Cos she’s just under the upperhand, and go mad for a couple of grams
| Em | C | G | G |
And she don’t want to go outside tonight
| Em | C | G | G |
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland, or sells love to another man
| Em | C | G | D/F# | Em | C | G | G |
It’s too cold outside for angels to fly,
| Em | C | G | G/F# |
for angels to fly

[Verse 2]

| G | G | G | G/F# |
Ripped gloves, raincoat, tried to swim and stay afloat
Em | C | G | G |
Dry house, wet clothes
| G | G | G | G/F# |
Loose change, bank notes, weary-eyed, dry throat
Em | C | G | G |
Call girl, no phone

[Pre-chorus]

| Am | C | G | D/F# |    (2 slagjes per maat)
And they say she’s in the Class A Team, stuck in her daydream
| Am | C |     (2 slagjes per maat)
Been this way since 18, but lately her face seems, slowly sinking, wasting
| G | D/F# |     (2 slagjes per maat)
Crumbling like pastries, and they scream the worst things in life come free to us

[Chorus 1]

| Em | C | G | G |    (1 slagje per maat)
Cos she’s just under the upperhand, and go mad for a couple of grams
| Em | C | G | G |     (1 slagje per maat)
And she don’t want to go outside tonight
| Em | C | G | G |     (1 slagje per maat)
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland, or sells love to another man
| Em | C | G | D/F# |     (1 slagje per maat)
It’s too cold outside for angels to fly

[Bridge]

| Am | C |      (2 slagjes per maat)
An angel will die, covered in white
| G/F# | G |      (2 slagjes per maat)
Closed eye and hoping for a better life
| Am | C | G | D/F# |      (2 slagjes per maat)
This time, we’ll fade out tonight, straight down the line
| Em | C | G | D/F# |      (slechts 1 slagje per maat)
Straight down the line

[Pre-chorus]

| Am | C | G | D/F# |      (2 slagjes per maat)
And they say she’s in the Class A Team, stuck in her daydream
| Am | C |      (2 slagjes per maat)
Been this way since 18, but lately her face seems, slowly sinking, wasting
| G | D/F# |      (2 slagjes per maat)
Crumbling like pastries, and they scream the worst things in life come free to us

[Chorus 2]

| Em | C | G | G |     (1 slagje per maat)
And we’re all under the upperhand, and go mad for a couple of grams
| Em | C | G | G |     (1 slagje per maat)
And we don’t want to go outside tonight
| Em | C | G | G |     (1 slagje per maat)
And in a pipe we’ll fly to the Motherland, or sell love to another man
| Em | C | G | G | D/F# | Em | C | G |
It’s too cold outside for angels to fly,
| Em | C | G | G/F# |
for angels to flyyyyy
| Em | C | G | G/F# | Em | C |
Flyyyy, flyyyyyy, angels to fly, fly, flyyy
| D/F# | G |
Or angels to die
