 CHORDS:
Please note that a dropped D tuning on both E strings is used. Also, there is a use of a capo on the 4th 
A capo is not essential, and the song can still be played no matter where you use it. For players wanting 
play "Lift" with un-capoed strings, simply subtract 4 from each of the fret numbers below.
   As for the Amaj7 add flat12 chord, that's just getting technical. It is a pretty weird chord, but it 
cool nonetheless. I've shortened it to A* just to make it easier to read.

This is the fingering I use for the chords. Feel free to use an alternate fingering if it's easier. The 
are numbered respectively 1-4, index to pinky.

Pretty easy fingering, so there should be no problems there. I believe the B is spiced up by a few random 
to the chord, which can be achieved with your 1st finger. For the E chord, it is basically a C major 
but you'll need to mute the low D string with your thumb (indicated with the X), otherwise the chord will sound icky.

---------------------------------

This tab is a half-step lower than last tab, anyone who thinks it was right
last time should tune down  half a step before their strings break......
Also I'm not 100% sure about the A+5 bit chord, I've got a bad live copy of
lift.....

Intro: Just strum a Bb chord for 4 bars (It changes to a sus2 when Thom starts singing)

		 A+5 bit 	 G#m  E

	    Bbsus2

			  A+5 bit    G#m  E
of the rest of your days.
		   Bb
So lighten up, squirt.

All th rest is easy, except the A+5 bit, which should roughly look like this

E---0---0---0---0---|
B---0-h-2-h-4-p-0---|
G---2---2---2---2---|
D---2---2---2---2---|
A---0---0---0---0---|
E---X---X---X---X---|

if it doesn't sound right ad-lib in this style until it does.
