Thin Air Chords

Pearl Jam - THIN AIR (from Binaural LP)
Tabbed by Serra (

This is a very simple song. I tabbed it for one guitar.

Verse1: E/C/E/E
       "There's a light, when my baby's in my arms,
        There's a light, when the window shades are drawn,

        Hesitate, when I feel I may do harm to her,
        Watch it all, cause this feeling we can share" 

Chorus: C/D(5th fret)/A(5th fret)/E
       "And I know she's reached my heart, in thin air"

                                              These are harmonics
e --------------- --------------- ----------- ----12--
B --------2-5-2-- --0-h2-0------- ----------- --12----
G ---3-4--------- ----------3---- ------2-1-- --------
D --------------- ------------2-- ----2------ --------
A --------------- --------------- --4-------- --------

[ Tab from: ]
Verse2: E/C/E/E
       "Byzantine is reflected in our pond,
        There's a cloud, but the water remains calm,
        Reaching in, the suns fingers clutch the dawn to pass,
        Even out, it's a precious thing to bear"


Bridge2: F/G/D/A 
         The second time  Play A 2 times then E(7th fret) 
         on "taking on".
        "It's not in my past to presume,
         Love can keep on moving in both directions.
         How to be happy and true,
         Is the quest we're taking on together,

         Taking on, on, on, on,
         Taking on, on, on, on, on, on"

Verse3: It's sung on pulsing bass. 
        I play it on the 6th string:

E ---7----------------------------3------------7-----
        "There's a light, when my baby's in my arms"
