Note: Yeah, 4 chords only, I'm just trying to make it simple & basic so
      that everybody can understand it. What makes the song fantastic
      is because the electric guitar adds lots of 'flower' in it & the
      way Chris sings it. Enjoy! In the intro, the Cmaj just strum it
      once.

Verse 1:

Cmaj        Amin
A cardboard head I see,

Fmaj          Amin
Has found its way to me,

Cmaj         Amin              Cmaj Amin
Itís old and itís old and itís old,

          Fmaj Gmaj
Making me cry,

Verse 2:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/c/coldplay/only_superstition_crd.html ]
Cmaj          Amin
I sleep but I will not move,

Fmaj          Amin
Too scared to leave my room,

Cmaj           Amin         Cmaj
But I wonít be defeated, oh no,

Note: The electric guitar do some of the intro here.

Pre-Chorus:

Cmaj                      Fmaj
What if cards donít go my way?

Fmaj                      Amin
And itís sure to spoil my day,

       Cmaj            Fmaj
But in voices loud and clear,

Note: This part electric guitar do the same as the intro.

Chorus:

           Amin                  Gmaj
You say to me "Itís only superstition,

Amin                  Gmaj
Itís only your imagination,

Amin                                 Fmaj
Itís only all of the things that you fear,

        Amin                        Fmaj
And the things from which you canít escape."

Verse 3:

Cmaj               Amin
Keep clean for the thousand time,

Fmaj            Amin
Stand still and wait and line,

Cmaj             Amin                   Cmaj
Some numbers are badder than others, oh no,

Note: Same as the first one.

Pre-Chorus:

Cmaj                      Fmaj
What if cards donít go my way?

Fmaj                      Amin
And itís sure to spoil my day,

       Cmaj            Fmaj
But in voices loud and clear,

Note: Same as the first one.

Chorus:

           Amin                  Gmaj
You say to me "Itís only superstition,

Amin                  Gmaj
Itís only your imagination,

Amin                                 Fmaj
Itís only all of the things that you fear,

        Amin                         Fmaj
And the things from which you cannot expect."

Bridge:

Amin               Fmaj
But itís making me cry,

Amin               Fmaj
And itís making me cry,

Amin             Fmaj
And Iím slipping away,

Amin             Fmaj
And Iím slipping away,

Fade:

Amin              Gmaj                   Amin
Itís only superstition, only your imagination,

Amin              Gmaj               Amin
Itís only superstition, only superstition,
