Second part of the intro is just the first chords below.

Play this over the chords (bending up to 11th and just repicking,
then bending back down again) -

e----------------------------------------
B----------------------------------------
G--9b11-11-11-11-11-11-11-11-11b9-9-9-9-- Over B chord

Verses

Yer acoustic strums along nicely with the first set of chords,
electric strums once at start of each bar, with its own special
version of each chord
B  - xx9877
F# - xx8676
E  - xx9997

B                                          F#
Look at the stars, look how they shine for you

                       E                              B
And everything that you do, yeh they were all yellow


I came along, i wrote a song for you
and all the things you do, and it was called yellow
And so i took my turn, oh what a thing to have done, and it was all yellow

Chorus

G#m              F#               E
Your skin, oh yeh your and bones
G#m        F#              E
turn in to something beautiful
G#m          F#           E
you know, you know i love you so

E*
you know i love you so

Yer lead guitarist gets the easy job here, he plays this:

e--16-16-16-16-16-16-16-16-16-16-16-16-16-14-14-14--
B---------------------------------------------------
G---------------------------------------------------
D---------------------------------------------------
A---------------------------------------------------
E---------------------------------------------------

Verse 2

I swam across, i jumped across for you
oh what a thing to do, cos you are all yellow
I drew a line, i drew a line for you
oh what a thing to do, cos it was all yellow

Chorus

Your skin, oh yeh your skin and bones
turn into something beautiful
you know, for you i'd bleed myself dry
for you i'd bleed myself dry

Bridge - play intro chords & lead

It's true, look how they shine for you... etc

Outro

B                                         A                           E 
Look at the stars, look how they shine for you, and all the things you do....
