More songs by Radiohead

This file is part of a collection that (moreso than the rest of the site) are not meant to be detailed or accurate transcriptions of the original recordings. They're just some simple chord charts that I made for my own use, some of them my own arrangements.

 Am   D7/F#  Em  /F# G         Am
   Karma   police, arrest this man
      Fsus2 F   Em       G             Am
   He talks in maths, he buzzes like a fridge
        D      G D/F#  C/E   Bm  Am   Bm  D
   He's like a detuned rad - i - o

   Karma police, arrest this girl
   Her Hitler hairdo is making me feel ill
   And we have crashed her party

    C         D           G   F#7
      This is what you'll get
    C         D           G   F#7
      This is what you'll get
    C         D           G
      This is what you'll get
               Bm        C     Bm  D
      When you mess with us

   Karma police, I've given all I can
   It's not enough, I've given all I can
   But we're still on the payroll


       Bm      D       G
         For a minute there
            D      G       D      E
         I lost myself, I lost myself
