A-Team - Ed Sheeran

Piano notes for how to play A Team by Ed Sheeran with your right hand.
I do not have the left hand, sorry!

Verse 1
White lips, pale face Breathing in the snowflakes
B        C#   G#  A     B C#     C# C#  E C#

Burnt lungs, sour taste
B        C#        E    E 

Light's gone, day's end, struggling to  pay rent
B         C#     G#    A     B C# C#  C# E   C#

Long nights, strange men
B       C#         E       E 

Pre-Chorus
And they say she's in the Class A Team
B      E    C#  A      A  A    A    E    C#

Stuck in her daydream
A       A   A     E C#

Been this way since 18,   but lately, her face seems
A       A     A     A   B C#  A   B C#   A   E     C#

Slowly sinking, wasting, crumbling like pastries
A A      A A       E C#       A A A     A    E C#

And they scream, the worst things in life come free to us
A     E         C#     B     C#     C#  C# C#  D    C#  B G#


Chorus:
Cause we're just under   the upper hand
A          A     C#  C# C# B    C# B   C# 

And go mad for a couple grams
A    C# C#  C# D C# B   A

And she don't want to go         outside tonight
A    C#    E       F#  E C# B A   A A      B C#

And in   a pipe she flies to the Motherland or sells love to   another man
B    C# B  C#  B   C#  C# B    C# B C#   A   C#   C# C# D C# B   A

It's too cold outside for angels to fly, 
C#  E   F#    A G#  E  C# B   A   A E C# B A  

Angels to fly
E C#   B  A B C# BA


Verse 2
Ripped gloves, raincoat, tried to swim and stay afloat
B           C#     G#  A       B   C#  C#  C#   E     C#

Dry house, wet clothes
B      C#      E     E 

Loose change, bank notes, weary-eyed, dry throat
B         C#        G#     A     B C#   C#   E     C#

Call girl, no phone
B    C#   E     E 


Pre-Chorus
And they say she's in the Class A Team
B      E    C#  A      A  A    A    E    C#

Stuck in her daydream
A       A   A     E C#

Been this way since 18,   but lately, her face seems
A       A     A     A   B C#  A   B C#   A   E     C#

Slowly sinking, wasting, crumbling like pastries
A A      A A       E C#       A A A     A    E C#

And they scream, the worst things in life come free to us
A     E         C#     B     C#     C#  C# C#  D    C#  B G#

Chorus:
Cause we're just under   the upper hand
A          A     C#  C# C# B    C# B   C# 

And go mad for a couple grams
A    C# C#  C# D C# B   A

And she don't want to go         outside tonight
A    C#    E       F#  E C# B A   A A      B C#

And in   a pipe she flies to the Motherland or sells love to   another man
B    C# B  C#  B   C#  C# B    C# B C#   A   C#   C# C# D C# B   A

It's too cold outside for angels to fly, 
C#  E   F#    A G#  E  C# B   A   A E C# B A  

Angels to fly
E C#   B  A B C# BA

Bridge:
An angel will die, covered in white
A E C# B C#  A A G# A 

Closed eyes and hoping for a better life
B         C#    B    C# B  C# B C# D  C#

This time, we'll fade out tonight
B      C#    A     A      A   E C# 

Straight down the line
A            A      B   C#

Pre-Chorus:
And they say she's in the Class A Team
B      E    C#  A      A  A    A    E    C#

Stuck in her daydream

Been this way since 18,   but lately, her face seems
A       A     A     A   B C#  A   B C#   A   E     C#

Slowly sinking, wasting, crumbling like pastries

Chorus:
Cause we're all under   the upper  hand
A          A    C# C# C#  B    C# B   C# 

And go mad for a couple grams
A    C# C#  C# D C# B   A

And we  don't want to go         outside tonight
A    C#    E       F#  E C# B A   A A      B C#

And in   a pipe she flies to the Motherland or sells love to   another man
B    C# B  C#  B   C#  C# B    C# B C#   A   C#   C# C# D C# B   A

It's too cold               outside for angels to fly, 
C# E   F# A G# E C#  B A     A    E C# B  A 

Angels to fly
E C# B A B C# D C# B A 

To fly                     fly
A E D C# D C#    E D C# D C# B A 

For angels to die

About Me
These notes can be used to play the song on many instruments including the flute, keyboard, recorder, piano and musical keyboard.
The piano/keyboard I use is a Casio CTK 240 Electric keyboard which is very basic but works brilliantly for beginners.
All of my posts are of the letter/alphabetical notes for many popular songs including current pop, rock, nursery rhymes, Disney and classical pieces.
I also have a YouTube channel (Mint Music) where I make videos to assist you in your learning.
Please feel free to comment any requests, feedback and constructive criticism.

Thank you for reading and have a good day!

(P.S please let me know how you got here, was it my YouTube, a google search or other?)

  4. Hey, so for 'burnt lungs, sour taste' and 'long nights, strange men's, I feel it woulde be better jf instead of two e's (because neither sound right), it should be g# and a? Not sure if that helps. Also for 'dry clothes, wet home' 'call girl, no phone'.
