The Bends Tab

   
Radiohead - The Bends
Tabbed by Tom Staunton Em                        G
 Where do we go from here, the words are coming out all weird
                    C
 where are you now?, when i need you
 Em                    G                                  C
 Alone on an airplane, falling asleep against the window pane

 My blood will thicken

 Just lying in a bar with my drip feed on, talking to my girlfriend

 Verse(2nd)
 Where do we go from here? the planet is a gunboat,
 in a sea of fear, and where are you?
 They brought in the CIA, the tanks and whole marines
 to blow me away, to blow me sky high

 Chorus (same as Intro)
 My babys got the bends,
 we don't have any real friends
 Just lying in a bar with my drip feed on
 Talking to my girlfriend waiting for something to happen
 I wish it was the sixties, i wish i could nbe happy
 i wish, i wish, i wish that something would.....

 (do the same as  just before it goes into the second verse)
 Then, this is a very simple version of the solo. Listen to the song
 to get the strumming right.

 Repeat sole twice then

 G                                                            C
 I want to live and breath, i want to be part of the human race
 G                                                            C
 I want to live and breath, i want to be part of the human race
 Em                     G
 Where do go from here, the words are coming out all weird
                   C
 Where are you now?, when i need you
