The A Team by Ed Sheeran

[final revision - thanks to all contributors before]

     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#) [or in the key of G (D/F#) or (C)]; 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

Bm DAnd they say she's in the Class A Team,
AStuck in her daydream,
EBeen this way since 18, but lately,
Bm DHer face seems slowly sinking, wasting,
ACrumbling like pastries, And they scream,
EThe worst things in life come free to us,
F#m DCos we're just under the upperhand,
AAnd go mad for a couple of grams,
F#m DAnd 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 Dfly,
A (E/G#)... Angels to
F#m Dfly,
A (E/G#)...
A (E/G#)Ripped gloves, raincoat, tried to swim and
F#m (D/F#)stay afloat, dry house, wet
A (E/G#)clothes...
A (E/G#)Loose change, bank notes, weary-eyed, dry
F#m (D/F#)throat, call girl, no
