Ed Sheeran - A Team chords

      
A Team by Ed Sheeran

     Notes:
     
     (1) the original key for this song is A, so you can either play the chords 
with a capo on the 2nd fret, which allows for nice open chords in G, C, Em, Am and 
D positions, or play in the key of A directly
     
     (2) to make it easy for you, I wrote the song twice, once in the key of A and 
once in the key of G, assuming a capo on the second fret; but you can just play it 
in G without a capo too and it may suit your voice better
     
     (3) the arrangement uses passing chords which I put in parenthesis such as (E/
G#) or (D/F#); these are as they sound, used in passing and are not absolutely 
necessary, as you will find if you play along with the song

     (4) this song is a little tricky to notate matching the lyrics, chords and 
rhythm, so it is pretty important to listen along to get the timing right

Key of A:
A (E/G#)White lips, pale face, breathing in
F#m (E/G#)snowflakes, burnt lungs, sour
Ataste...
A (E/G#)Light's gone, day's end, struggling to
F#m (E/G#)pay rent, long nights, strange
Amen...
Bm DAnd they say she's in the Class A Team,
AStuck in her daydream,
E Been this way since 18, but lately,
Bm DHer face seems slowly sinking, wasting,
A Crumbling like pastries, And they scream,
EThe worst things in life come free to us,
F#m D Cos we're just under the upperhand,
AAnd go mad for a couple of grams,
F#m D And she don't want to go
Aoutside tonight,
F#m DAnd in a pipe she flies to the Motherland,
AOr sells love to another man,
F#m DIt's too cold outside,
A (E/G#)..For angels to
F#m D fly,
A (E/G#)... Angels to
F#m Dfly,
A (E/G#)...
A (E/G#)Ripped gloves, raincoat, tried to swim and
F#m (E/G#)stay afloat, dry house, wet
A (E/G#)clothes...
A (E/G#)Loose change, bank notes, weary-eyed, dry
F#m (E/G#)throat, call girl, no
A (E/G#)phone...
Bm DAnd they say she's in the Class A Team,
AStuck in her daydream,

F#m D Cos we're just under the upperhand,

F#m D And she don't want to go
Aoutside tonight,
F#m DAnd in a pipe she flies to the Motherland,
AOr sells love to another man,
F#m DIt's too cold outside,
A ..For angels to
Bm D fly, an angel will die.
F#m…Covered in white, closed eye, and
Ahoping for a better life,
Bm D This time, we'll fade out tonight,
Straight down the Instrumental break:
F#m DLine...
A (E/G#)..
F#m D..
