Grey Room  Damien Rice

?Grey Room? by Damien Rice off the Album ?9?
No capo, standard tuning.
C/G: 332010
F: 133211
Em: 022000
G: 355433
Notes on strumming:
There are lots of hammer-ons and pull-offs in this song. In general:
When he plays the C/G chord, he does the hammer-ons and pull-offs with the open D string
the E note on the second fret.
When he plays the F chord, he does the hammer-ons and pull-offs with the open G string
the A note on the second fret.
During the verse, right before you change from the F chord back to the C/G, he does a
pull-off with the F chord like it's described above.
If you want to keep the F bass note on that F chord, you could play it with your thumb
I like to do to keep a nice, full sound (plus it's cool to play with your thumb
So it goes like this:
C/G chord hammer-on:

C/G chord pull-off:

F chord hammer-on:

F chord pull-off:

I tried to get the chord placements right with the lyrics, but they might be off a bit,
you know how it goes...
Intro: C/G F
Well I've be[C/G]en here before, I've sat on the floor, in a grey grey[F] room,
Where I st[C/G]ay in all day, I don't eat, but I play, with this grey grey food,[F]
[C/G]Desole, If someone is prayin', then I mi[F]ght break out,
[C/G]Desole, Even if I scream, I can't scream t[F]hat loud,
[Em]I'm all [F]alone again,[Em] crawling back [F]home agai[Em]n, just stuck by the[F] phone again
(Right around 1:28 he sneaks in a G note on the third fret, first string)
Yeah, well I've [C/G]been here before, sat on a floor, in a grey grey [F]mood,
Where I [G/C]stay up all night, And all that I write, is a grey grey tune,[F]
So [C/G]pray for me child, Just for a while, And I might[F] break out yeah,
[C/G]Pray for me child, even a smile, would do for now[F],
(Crank up the speakers because Lisa kicks in here ? go Lisa!)
[Em]So I'm all [F]alone again[Em], crawling back [F]home again[Em], just stuck by the [F]phone again
Have I still got you [G]to be my ope[F]n door,
Have I still got you [G]to be my san[F]dy shore,
Have I still got you [G]to cross my brid[F]ge in this storm,
Have I still got you [G]to keep me wa[F]rm,
Coz if I squeeze my g[C/G]rape, And I drink my wine yeah,[F]
Coz if I squeeze my g[C/G]rape, And I drink my wine[F] yeah,
Yeah, Oh coz noth[C/G]ing is lost, This is frozen in frost,
And it's op[F]ening time, And there's no-one in line,
But I've still got me to [G]be your open [F]door,
I've still got me t[G]o be your san[F]dy shore,
I've still got me t[G]o cross your bri[F]dge in this storm,
And I've still got [G]me to keep you [F]warm,
Warmer than [C/G]warm yeah, Warmer than [F]warm yeah,
Warmer than wa[C/G]rm yeah, Warmer than wa[F]rm yeah
