pale white moon shines down on colorado
Em   
hide my dirty secrets

down here in the shadows

where the quaking aspens
A
tremble in the snow
Em
haul me up the hillside
        G
hold me high and let me go

       C                                    D
let me fall down through my own roof like a meteorite
        Em                                 G
let the world and all its wonders leave me to my toys tonight

finds nothing but some trees

Notes: This is my first chord set ever @_@ I'm kinda unsure of the Bms in the second part though, but I felt like something is better than nothing. Feel free to fix it and send comments/suggestions!

Note: This is how I play Surrounded, while switching up the way you play the chords may seem overly complicated at first, the end result is an absolutely beautiful song that's totally worth it.

Surrounded
variation by joshuah

Moje's tab seems mostly right, but I think it's a bit off. Here's what I've been doing:

Intro D

D                     G
Pale white moon shine down on Colorado
Bm
Hide my dirty secrets
G
Down here in the shadows
D
Where the quaking aspens
G (or A, if you want a Pachelbelian variation)
Tremble in the snow
Bm
Haul me up the hillside
G
Hold me high and let me go
       C5 (neither major nor minor)          D
Let me fall right through my own roof like a meteorite
Bm (or maybe I'm just Bm-happy)              G
Let the world and all it’s wonders, leave me to my toys tonight
              D
And my ninety-six inch
G
Television screen
       D           A       Bm           D
Let me die, let me die, surrounded by machines

[Incidentally, here is where I like to do a D-(A)-Bm-(A)-D thing where the (A)s are quick transition chords.]
