Ed Sheeran - Tenerife Sea chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This is how Ed played it at Madison Square, and I believe these are the right lyrics.
Here's the video of him singing it that I used:

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

Almost Standard Tuning: (Low to High with no capo)

E-A-D-E-B-E    (Just tune the G down to an E)


Capo 4

Chords: (from capo, Low to High)

E - 022000
F#m - 244000
A - x02000
B - x24000
C#m - x46000

On the A chord, he hammers the B string (2nd from highest), second fret - x02020

Technique stuff:
The F#m chord may sound a bit off, but it's the bass note that you should listen for.
Also, think of this song as 4 beats per line, but then subdivide every beat into 6 
mini beats. That's how he plucks. For example, say "Cheerio Cheerio" for each 
beat. (For those who read music, it's in 4/4 time, but think of individual beats 
in 6/8, or as 2 triplets)
He likes to hit the bass note on the first beat of every chord, the G string on 
the 2nd triplet (or the Chee of the second Cheerio), then the B string on the "a" 
of the 2nd triplet (1+a2+a) (or the "O" of the second Cheerio).

E             F#m       A
  You look so wonderful in your dress
E            F#m       A
 I love your hair like that
E           F#m          A
 The way it falls on the side of your neck
C#m        B             A
 Down your shoulders and back

E         F#m          A
 We are surrounded by all of these lies
     E          F#m      A
 And people who talk too much
E                F#m     A
 You've got the kind of look in your eyes
       C#m         B            A
As if no one knows anything but us


   A                  E            B
And should this be the last thing I see
  A                      E          B
I want you to know it's enough for me
      A                    E                  B
Cause all that you are is all that I'll ever need


          E   F#m   A
I'm so in love
      E   F#m   A
So in love
      E   F#m   A
So in love
      E   F#m   A
So in love


E             F#m       A
 You look so beautiful in this light
E            F#m       A
 Your silhouette over me
E            F#m           A
 The way it brings out the blue in your eyes
       C#m     B    A
is the Tenerife Sea 
    E          F#m        A
And all of the voices surrounding us here
          E             F#m         A
They just fade out when you take a breath
E             F#m           A
Just say the word and now we'll disappear
    C#m      B          A
oh, into the wilderness


    A                  E            B
And should this be the last thing I see
  A                      E          B
I want you to know it's enough for me
      A                    E                  B
Cause all that you are is all that I'll ever need


          E   F#m   A
I'm so in love
      E   F#m   A
So in love
      E   F#m   A
So in love
      E   F#m   A
So in love


C#m A   B  E
Lumière darling
C#m  A        B
Lumière over me 

(He loops this 6 times) (I sing it 2 times normal, 2 with the first harmony he uses)


   A                  E            B
And should this be the last thing I see
  A                      E          B
I want you to know it's enough for me
      A                    E                  B
Cause all that you are is all that I'll ever need


          E   F#m   A
I'm so in love
      E   F#m   A
So in love
      E   F#m   A
So in love
      E   F#m   A
So in love


E            F#m       A
 You look so wonderful in your dress
E             F#m       A
 I loved your hair like that
E            F#m      A*
 And in the moment I knew you back


*(on the last chord just play the bass string)
