No Surprises - Ukulele Chords - Radiohead

Following my post yesterday of the wonderful Amanda Palmer performing Radioheads No Surprises on ukulele, I thought I would follow up with the chords.


Its a supremely easy song to play, though you will need to do some practice on the picked intro - that famous intro that everybody knows.  I am sure you will figure it out as it is just simple slow picking over the chord shapes of G and Em.



NO SURPRISES


Intro: [G] [Em] x4 (picked)

A [G] heart that's full up like a [Em] landfill,
A [Em] job that slowly [C] kills you,
[D] Bruises that won't [G] heal [Em] (repeat fingerpicked intro)


[G] You were so tired, happy,
[Em] Bring down the government,
[C] They don't, they [D] don't speak for [G] us [Em] 

[G] I'll take the quiet life, a [Em] handshake of carbon monoxide
[Am] No alarms and [D] no surprises, [Am] no alarms and [D] no surprises
[Am] No alarms and [D] no surprises
[G] Silent, [Em] silent [G] [Em]

[G] This is my final [Bm] fit, my final [Em] bellyache with
[Am] No alarms and [D] no surprises, [Am] no alarms and [D] no surprises
[Am] No alarms and [D] no surprises [G] please [Em]

Middle instrumental: [D] [Cm] [D] [Cm] [Am]


[G] Such a pretty house, [Em] such a pretty garden
[Am] No alarms and [D] no surprises, [Am] no alarms and [D] no surprises
[Am] No alarms and [D] no surprises [G] please [Em] [G] [Em] [G]
