Comedown (Acoustic Chords)

Bush

Std Tuning (though I think it sounds better a 1/4 step down, 1/2 step (D#) is too far).

Chords:
B:  7-9-9-8-7-7    
A:  5-7-7-6-5-5      * Can surely Drop D these and rock out (if so, play G,B,e strings open)    
F#: 2-4-4-3-2-2        I'm just trying to show a fuller, more acoustic feel
G:  3-5-5-4-3-3
D:  10-12-12-11-10-10

There are some nice tabs of this song, but I thought I'd take a crack at an acoustic version that 
sounds really cool/nice and adds chords, lyrics, timing, etc. I think I offer some missing details 
that could be used back in the other tabs to fill in the electric/rock'n versions as well.

There are several variations of both. For instance, the chorus part might just strum each out 
each chord 8x's per measure in parts. I'm just trying to explain what I think is the main feel 
for the song roots. Take as many liberties as you'd like.

Intro:

(Bass enters first, then main riff is played twice)
B   |A   |F#  |G   |(x2)

Verse 1: (w/ main riff - starts off mellower and more on bassy side)
B            A                
   Love and hate...get it 
F#                G
wrong. She cut me right back down to 
B                 A     
size.  Sleep the day, let it
F#             G
fade.  Who was there to take your 
B    *           A                 (*kick it up in volume on 3rd beat)
place?  No one knows...never 
F#            G
will!  Mostly me but mostly 
B                A          
you. What do you say, what do you 
F#           G
do,  when it all comes down? 

Chorus:
D                      A 
   Cause I don't wanna come back down from 
G                      G
this cloud.                  It's taken me 
D                      A
all this time...    to find  out  what I 
G                      G
n-e-e-D...     yeah.   (yeah, yeah, yeah)

D                      A            
     No, I don't wanna come back down from 
G                      G
this cloud!             Cuz' it's taken me 
D                      A
all this...all this... t---i---i---i---i--
G
-ime. 

(back to main riff)
B   |A   |F#  |G   |(x2)

Verse 2: (same deal, mellow then pick up 2nd half)

B                A             F#
   There is no blame o-n-l-y shame 
         G                B
when you beg and just complain.
            A               F#    
The more I come, the more I try... 
       G           B    *
all police are paranoid. 
      A           F#
So am I, so's the future.
       G             B
So are you, be a creature.
            A                F#
What do you say, what do you do, 
        G
when it all comes down? 

Chorus:
D                     A                   G       
  Cause I don't wanna come back down from this cloud. 
G               D                A               G           G
  It's taken me all this time to find out what I need. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah! 
D                   A                   G
  No, I don't wanna come back down from this cloud.
G               D                   A         G       G           
  It's taken me all this, all this, t-i-i-i-i-me 

Bridge: (variation on main riff, i think)
B         A         F#              G
shoot up, shoot up, shoot up you're high... oooh..
B         A         F# (1 strum, pause then) G
hi--igh...hi--igh...high                   ("1, 2, 3, 4...")

Verse 3:
B           A          F#
  Love and hate get it wrong,
           G              B 
she cut me right down to size! 
           A          F#
Sleep the day, let it fade.
        G                  B 
Who was there to take your place?! 
        A            F#
No one knows, never will! 
         G              B
Could be me it could be you. 
               A          F#
Oh what do you say, do ya do, 
        G
when it all comes down?! 

Chorus:
D                     A                   G       
  Cause I don't wanna come back down from this cloud. 
G                    D                A               G           G
  Cuz' it's taken me all this time to find out what I need. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah! 
D                    A                   G
   No, I don't wanna come back down from this cloud.
G                    D                   A         G       G           
  Cuz' it's taken me all this, all this, t-i-i-i-i-me!  

Outro: (play chorus chords, but intensely - full strum away - D definitely at 10th fret here)
D                      A                      G                   G
D                      A                      G                   G
why did you, whydidju, why did you, whydidju, whydidju,whydidju,whydidu,why did you?
D                      A                      G                   G  
                                              Comedown? 
D                      A                      G                   G  
                                              Comedown? 
D                      A                      G                   G            
       I don't want to come back down    from this cloud...                       from...
D                      A                      G                   G

D                      A                      G                   G 
this cloud...   from...this cloud...          this cloud...       this cloud... 

D   A   G   G  (to fade, or end on D, or grab your violin if you have one and wrap things up)
