Thanks to Zachary (1st version of the tab) for providing the template... hope he doesn't mind.

Guitar's in standard tuning... a rarity for Coldplay, I must say.  Still some
different chords though...I'm giving them semi-standard names because I have no
clue what they are really called.

The Chords:

   B    B*   G#*   G#*add5  Fmajor  E   
e| 7    7     0       0       2     0
b| 7    7     0       0       2     0
G| 8    7     4       6       3     1
D| 9    8     6       x       4     2
A| 9    9     6       6       4     2
E| 7    7     4       4       2     0



Verse 1:

B             B*
From the very start, it

G#*    (G#*add5)
Came a-part and,

B*             B*     G#*
Broke up into pieces and...

Fmaj      B                   B*
There's a chance I could have missed it,

G#*      (G#*add5)
It could risked it,

(Fmaj) B               B*      G#*
But I put myself into your hands,

                       B    
 Cos you're not just anyone,
                            
                        G#* 
 You're a ladder to the sun, 
                             
                       B        
 Oh, You're not just anyone,    
                            
                       G#*  
 You're a ladder to the sun.

Verse 2:

B             B*
I could run my courses and ah,

G#*    (G#*add5)
Opposing forces and ah,

B               B*      G#*
Men are just mortals, and...

B                               B*
Oh If you want me then you can have me,

      G#*           (G#*add5)
C'mon take me, oh baby grab me,

B                               B*   G#*
Cos If you want me then you can have me,

                       B
 Cos you're not just anyone,
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/c/coldplay/ladder_to_the_sun_crd_ver_2.html ]
                        G#*
 You're a ladder to the sun,

                       B
 Oh You're not just anyone,

                        G#*
 You're my ladder to the sun.



E                
Oh now boy, what you may not turn?

Fmaj
You set a course and she couldn't run,

E                                   (slide up to B again.)
Oh now boy what you may not turn...

(1st instrumental -- listen to the song for timing)   B   B*  B   B* 


Verse 3:

           E              
I had it all and I risked it,

     C#m     Fmaj
And it could risk it,

          E                            C#m   Fmaj
I had it all and, and I risked it all,

                  B
Then I risked it all.


( 2nd instrumental -- listen to the song to get the timing right -- alternates
between  B  and   G#* )

                B
And I risked it all,

              B*
A ladder to the,

                G#*
A ladder to the sun,

          (G#*add5)    
A ladder to the,

                 B
A ladder to the sun,

             B*
A ladder to the,

                G#*
A ladder to the sun,

                               B 
I had it all and I risked it all,

              B*
A ladder to the,

                G#*
A ladder to the sun,

           (G#*add5)
A ladder to the,

                B
A ladder to the sun,

             B*
A ladder to the,

                 G#*
A ladder to the sun,

                             E   B   Fmaj [note, to make this transition easier,
                                  use (top to bottom) 024422 as your "B" chord.]

I had it all and I risk it all,

                 E   
And I risked it all,

 B        Fmaj        E
Ohh, and I risked it all,

         B
I had it all,

    Fmaj         E
and I risked it all,

   B         Fmaj...          
Ohh, and I risked it all...

               B (strum entire chord slower)
A ladder to the sun.
