How can you be sure?  by Radiohead

>From the "High & Dry" CD single... played at a deliberate, medium tempo.
The bass actually echoes most of the melody in the song, so it can sound a
little wack on an acoustic guitar. Try walking the E up to the A on the
"good things and bad" parts to fill things out a little bit.

  E    B   E           A2->A
  Seen all good things and bad
  E       B    E   A2
  running down the hill
  E   B  E            A
  All so battered and brought to the
  E       B  E   A2
  E B  E      A2->A
  I am hungry again
  E    B     E     A2
  I am drunk again
  E        B   E       A
  With all the money I owe to my
  E    B   E

  A    G#m F#m  E5
  When I'm like this
  B       A      G#m      F#m
  How can you be smiling, saying

Chorus (inhale deeply!):
  E  B E A
  Ho-o-w can you be sure?
  E  B E A
  Ho-o-w can you be sure?

  If you walk out that door, will I see you again
  if so much of me lies in your eyes?
  I am hungry again, I am drunk again
  With all the money I owe to my friends


Chorus x2
Chorus (instrumental)
Chorus w/ "I don^t want you anymore" vocals overdubbed


Notes on the chords:

I'm not sure what to call the B that I hear in the song, but I think itmight be a B5. It's fingered thusly; essentially just a power chord.e--X---B--0---G--4---D--4---A--2---E--X---
Also, the A2->A is accomplished through a hammer-on, like so:e--0---2-2B--0---0h2G--2---2-2D--2---2-2A--0---0-0E--0---0-0
I think the G#m employed in the chorus is played with some open strings:e--0B--0G--4D--6A--6E--x
And finally, the E5 in the chorus is played like an open D, but barred up 2frets (kinda like how you might play an Eb)e--xB--5G--4D--2A--2E--0
