Coldplay - Champion Of The World: chords

    G
I tried my best to be just like
    D                C
The other boys in school
    G
I tried my best to get it right
     D             C
And died at every duel
      G
This mountainside is suicide
       D               C
This dream will never work
           G
Still the sign upon my headstone, write
     D              C
"A champion of the world"

I tried my best to stay alight
Fly like a firework
I tried my best at taking flight
But my rocket ship reversed
Oh, referee, don't stop the fight
Everyone can see I'm hurt
But I'll stand before conquistadors
Till I'm champion of the world

Chorus:
         C
(When I sail) And when I sail
             G
I'm sailing west
                 C
(Though I might fail) Knowing I might fail
                 G              D
But, still I am hoping for the best
         C
(In my dreams) And in my dreams
         Em
Onto my chest
                            C
She'll pin the colours and say
"I wandered the whole wide world but
       D          G
Baby, you're the best"

So I'm flying on my bicycle
Heading upwards from the Earth
I am jumping with no parachute
Out into the universe
I have E.T. on my bicycle
Because giving up won't work
Now I'm riding on my rocketship
And I'm champion of the world
