Matthew Perryman Jones - O Theo chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Based on videos, he plays capo 3 and picks out the first two verses. Not sure about the 
Amadd11, but it's close enough. Also, not even remotely sure about the bridge but it 
still sounds good with the flow of the song.

Capo 3

G/B: x20033     [ch]Gsus4/C[/ch]: x30033
G5:  3x0033     Amadd11: x00210


Verse 1:
G/B       [ch]Gsus4/C[/ch]    G5
Under the silence of water,
G/B    [ch]Gsus4/C[/ch]     G5
Into a sky full of birds
G/B          [ch]Gsus4/C[/ch]     G5
Out from the land of our fathers,
     Em              C
I am falling on your words,
G/B       [ch]Gsus4/C[/ch]    G5
Oh...


Verse 2:
G/B         [ch]Gsus4/C[/ch]    G5
Dark as the night of a preacher,
G/B      [ch]Gsus4/C[/ch]    G5
I made a bed out of hay
     G/B       [ch]Gsus4/C[/ch]    G5
They paid me a handful of money,
  Em          C
I gave it all away...
G/B       [ch]Gsus4/C[/ch]    G5
All away...


Chorus 1:
        C                      Em
And the righteous raised their stones
        C               Em
And the devil threw his arrow
         C             Em
That was longing for a home
     Am         Amadd11
With nowhere to go,
G/B       [ch]Gsus4/C[/ch]    G5
Oh, Theo...


Verse 3:
G/B         [ch]Gsus4/C[/ch]     G5
In the half-life of the city,
G/B          [ch]Gsus4/C[/ch]    G5
She took off all of her clothes
  G/B           [ch]Gsus4/C[/ch]       G5
I flew from the height of the mountains
       Em            C
Into a valley of dry bones
G/B       [ch]Gsus4/C[/ch]    G5
All alone


Chorus 2:
        C               Em
Then my heart was still unknown
      C                 Em
I was drunk and full of sorrows
      C             Em
I was longing for a home
     Am         Amadd11
With nowhere to go,
G/B       [ch]Gsus4/C[/ch]    G5
Oh, Theo...


Bridge: (Solo)
Am   C   G   (Gadd11 Em)



Verse 4:
G/B       [ch]Gsus4/C[/ch]  G5
So, I set fires of starlight,
   G/B      [ch]Gsus4/C[/ch]       G5
To burn up against the despair
      G/B           [ch]Gsus4/C[/ch]    G5
I was caught in the tangles of midnight's
Em               C
Long, unanswered prayer:
G/B       [ch]Gsus4/C[/ch]    G5
'Are you there?'


Chorus 3:
        C                Em
And the light of morning grows
     C               Em
On a field of fallen sparrows
      C             Em
I was longing for a home
     Am         Amadd11
With nowhere to go,
G/B       [ch]Gsus4/C[/ch]    G5
Oh, Theo...
