White Flag Chords

   
Dido - White Flag
Track #1, Life For Rent, 2003

It's annoying me that the other versions of this song here don't seem to have the
words precisely right, or to have the chords properly aligned, so I thought I'd
do my own version. 

I've transposed it into an easier key to play, as this way all the minor chords
are in the open position. It's also a good key in which to sing it if you're a
high baritone or a soprano, but if you want to play along to the CD then you need
a capo on the 5th fret.

Capo 5

Intro:   [C] [Em] [C] [Em]


[Am]I know you think that I shouldn't still love you
I'll [Em]tell you that 
but if [Am]I didn't say it, well I'd still have felt it 
[Em]where's the sense in that? 

I promise [G]I'm not trying to make your life harder 
or re[Dm]turn to where we were [Em]

[F] but I will go down with this_[C]__ ship
and I won't [Dm]put my hands up and sur[Am]render 
there will be [F]no white flag above my_[C]__ door 
I'm in [G]love and always [Dm] will be 

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/d/dido/white_flag_crd_ver_5.html ]
[Am]I know I left too much mess 
and destruction to come [Em]back again 
and I cause [Am]nothing but trouble 
I understand if you can't [Em]talk to me again 

[G]  and if you live by the rules of it's over 
then I'm [Dm]sure that that makes sense [Em]

[F] but I will go down with this_[C]__ ship
and I won't [Dm]put my hands up and sur[Am]render 
there will be [F]no white flag above my_[C]__ door 
I'm in [G]love and always [Dm] will be 


and when we [C]meet, which I'm sure we will 
all that was [Em]then, will be there still 
I'll let it [Dm]pass, and hold my tongue 
and you will [G]think that I've moved on____


[F] I will go down with this_[C]__ ship
and I won't [Dm]put my hands up and sur[Am]render 
there will be [F]no white flag above my_[C]__ door 
I'm in [G]love and always [Dm] will be 

[F] I will go down with this_[C]__ ship
and I won't [Dm]put my hands up and sur[Am]render 
there will be [F]no white flag above my_[C]__ door 
I'm in [G]love and always [Dm] will be 


(Just use a single strum at the start of each bar in the final chorus.)
