Above the Clouds  Paul Weller

Paul Weller - Above The Clouds
Paul Weller
This is based on the acoustic version which was played on Later with
Jools Holland in 2001:
Towards the end of the chorus and during the Coda there's a chord I
can't quite work out, I play it as a B7 which sounds okay but Paul plays
something else. Not sure what though. F#m/B or Bsus4 (x244xx) sound okay as
well. If you can work it out let me know so I can adjust the tab.
Emaj7 (076444) Emaj7* (xx999-11)
Amaj7 (x07654) Emaj7** (xx9897)
[F#m7] [(242222)]  
[G#m7]B7 [(464444)](x2120x) or F#m/B (x242xx)
C#m (x46654)
[A]B [(577655)](799877)
When playing Emaj7 you'll want to hit the low E string twice before playing
it so something like this:

Also the last three chords in the outro goes something like this:

Bridge : [C#m] As my anger shouts,[F#m7] at my own self doubt,
[C#m] So a sadness creeps,[F#m7] into my dreams,
[C#m] When you're scared of living,[F#m7] but afraid to die,
[A] I get scared of giving and [B]I must find the [B]faith to beat it,
[Emaj7]Oh yeh, [Amaj7] [Emaj7] yeh yeh yeh.
