So, I like playing Coldplay's Amsterdam in the Key of Eb with a 4/4 meter.
Here's a different key with the online chord chart @ http://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/c/coldplay/amsterdam_crd.htm

verse:
D        A        E           G
Come on, oh my star is fading
D       A         E         G
And I swerve out of control
D   A     E              G
If I, if I'd only waited
D        A         E               G
I'd not be stuck here in this hole.

*play intro and repeat verse*

chorus: 
E                    G
But time is on your side
              D        A 
It's on your side now
E7                        G    
Not pushing you down and all around
          D         A 
It's no cause for concern


*intro again and verse*

*chorus till end*
