A Team Chord Chart by Ed Sheeran


Welcome to my A Team Chord Chart by Ed Sheeran. We will be using a capo on the second fret to make this song nice and easy for you using open chords. If you see anything weird in the chart like Am7 and you don't know what that is, that's OK just play Am or if you see D/F#, don't worry about that just play a D chord. 

So let's talk about a simple strumming pattern we can use for this really cool song. If you think you strumming is up to par, you can try accenting the 2nd and 4th beats noted with a (>). This means you strums those down beats a little harder than you normally would.

Dynamics like accenting can often times be difficult for beginner players, so don't worry if you are not able to that yet. You can always use 4 down strums per chord to make it super simple.

Strumming:

      >          >
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
D   D    DU DU

The great thing about this song is that you get to hang on the chords a little bit so the number of times you play the strumming patterns for each chord is in parenthesis. 

 

A Team Chord Chart

by Ed Sheeran Capo 2nd Fret

Intro: G G G G Em Em G G

Verse:
G (4)      
                                              
   White lips, pale face, breathing in snowflakes,
Em  (2)                       G  (2)                
     Burnt lungs, sour taste.
G (4)
    Light's gone, day's end, Struggling to pay rent,
 Em  (2)                          G  (2)
    Long nights, strange men.

Chorus:
        Am7 (2)                             C (2)

And they say she's in the Class A Team,
                      G (2)                                          D (2)
Stuck in her daydream, been this way since eighteen, but lately
       Am7 (2)                                 C (2)
her face seems, slowly sinking, wasting, crumbling like
  G (2)                                         D/F# (2)
pastries, and they scream, The worst things in life come free to us,
                     Em                   C                G (2)
'Cause we're just under the upper hand,  and go mad for a couple of grams,
Em                                  C          G (2)
    And she don't want to go outside tonight,
               Em                            C              G (2)
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland,     or sells love to another man,
Em            C         G          D/F#
    It's too cold outside, for angels to
Em   C     G (2)
fly,                   Angels to
Em   C     G (2)
fly

Verse:
G (4)
    Ripped gloves, raincoat, tried to swim and stay afloat,
Em  (2)                    G  (2)
    Dry house, wet clothes.
G (4)
   Loose change, bank notes, weary-eyed, dry throat,
Em (2)                 G  (2)
      Call girl, no phone.

Chorus:
        Am7 (2)                             C (2)

And they say she's in the Class A Team,
                      G (2)                                          D (2)
Stuck in her daydream, been this way since eighteen, but lately
       Am7 (2)                                 C (2)
her face seems, slowly sinking, wasting, crumbling like
  G (2)                                         D/F# (2)
pastries, and they scream, The worst things in life come free to us,
                     Em                   C                G (2)
'Cause we're just under the upper hand,  and go mad for a couple of grams,
Em                                  C          G (2)
    And she don't want to go outside tonight,
               Em                            C              G (2)
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland,     or sells love to another man,
Em            C         G          D/F#
    It's too cold outside, for angels to

Bridge:
Am7 (2)               C (2)
fly,  an angel will die, covered in
Em (2)                          G (2)
white, closed eye, and hoping for a better life,
Am7 (2)                           C (2)
This time, we'll fade out tonight, straight down the line.

Em C G G Em C G G

Chorus:
        Am7 (2)                            C (2)
And they say she's in the Class A Team,
                      G (2)                                         D (2)
Stuck in her daydream, been this way since eighteen, but lately
       Am7 (2)                               C (2)
her face seems, slowly sinking, wasting, crumbling like
  G (2)                                        D/F# (2)
pastries, and they scream, The worst things in life come free to us,

(one strum per chord):
                Em                C                G (2)
And we're all under the upper hand,  and go mad for a couple of grams,
Em                                  C          G (2)
    And she don't want to go outside tonight,

    It's too cold outside, for angels to

(resume strumming)
Em   C     G (2)
fly,                   Angels to
Em   C     G (2)
fly
Em   C     G (2)
fly,        fly,    Angels to
Em      C       G (2)              G (hold)
fly,  to fly, to fly,  Angels to  die.
