Put that put that put that up your wall
A D E
That this isn't country at all

F# A (EEAE) F# A B
Radio station decide yourself

{same sa verse above}

Keep me out of country in the word
Deal of fortunes leading us absurd
Push that push that push that to the floor
That this isn't nothing at all

Straight off the boat where to go

E A E A
Calling out in the transit calling out in the transit
E A E A
Radio Free Europe

Decide defy the media too fast
Instead of pushing palaces to fall
Put that put that put that up your wall
That this isn't fortunate at all

Radio station decide yourself
Calling out in the transit calling out in the transit
Radio Free Europe

Bsus4 C# Bsus4 C#
Decide yourself coming on a boat I am not a bum!

Keep me out of country in the word
Disappointment into us absured

Straight up above where to go
Calling out in the transit calling out in the transit

Pilgrimage
==========


{piano intro is something like this:}

(D) ---3-------------------
(A) -----3------3----------
(E) --------3-------------- .... repeat then go on to verses...

Take a turn take a turn
Take off marching take off marching

(G) -------0---------0------------------
(D) ----3---------3----------0-------0--
(A) --1--------1-----------3-------3----
(E) ---------------------1-------1------ ... repeat several times

They called the club a two-headed cow
Your hate clipped and distant your luck with pilgrimage
Rest assured this will not last take a turn for the worst
Your hate clipped and distant your luck a two-headed cow

CCC F G
Pilgrimage has gained momentum
F G
Take a turn take a turn
F G F G
Take off marching take off marching
Pilgrimage

{the little break is....}

C / / / C(Bbass) / / / Bb / / / G {of course repeated some}

Speaking in tongues it's with a broken lip
Your hate clipped and distant your luck with pilgrimage
Rest assured this will not last take a turn for the worst
Your hate clipped and distant your luck a two-headed cow

Your hate clipped and distant your luck
Rest assured this will not last take a turn for the worst
Your hate clipped and distant your luck two-headed




Talk About The Passion
======================


Riff : B(2) -3-3-------3-3--------
G(3) -2-2-------2-2--------- C Asus4
D(4): -0-0-0-2-4-0-0-0-2-4-0---

Empty bread empty mouths combien reaction
Empty bread empty mouths talk about the passion
Not everyone can carry the weight of the world

3 3
/ / / / / | / / / / /
A G A | A G A

G D Bm A A Asus2 A Asus2
Talk about the passion

Empty bread empty mouths combien reaction
Empty bread empty mouths talk about the passion
F Em F Em F Em
Combien combien combien de temps?


Also, someone asked about the intro tab for Talk About The Passion :

(D)************************* (Cmaj7)**** (A)**********
E-------------- ! ----------------! ---------! ------------------!
B---------------! ----------------! ---3-----! ----232-----------!
G--2--2--2-2--2-! -2--2--2-2-2-2--! --0-0----! ---2---2----------!
D--0--0--0-2--4-! -0--0--0-2-4-0--! -2---2---! --2-----2---------!
A---------------! ----------------! 3-----3--! -0-------0--------!
E---------------! ----------------! ---------! ------------------!


I also play this song by making a D without any finger on the high
E string. Here's how it begins :

-----------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------3---------------0------------------------
--------------------------2---------2-----2---------2------------
0-0-0-2-4--0-0-0-2-4-0------0-----0---------2-----2--------------
2-2-2------2-2-2--------------3-1-------------3-2----------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Then this is repeated for the chorus

--------------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3------------------------------
0-0-0-0---0-0-0-0------------------------------------------------
2-2-2-2---2-2-2-2------------------------------------------------
2-2-2-2---2-2-2-2------------------------------------------------
2-2-0-2---2-2-0-2---3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3------------------------------
--------------------3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2------------------------------

and this part comes after the chorus

-----------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------0-0-0-0-0-------------------------------
-------------------------2-2-2-2-2-------------------------------
2-2-2-2--2-2-2-2--2-2-2--2-2-2-2-2-------------------------------
3-3-3-3--3-3-3-3--3-3-3--2-2-2-0-2-------------------------------
2-2-3-5--2-2-3-5--3-3-2------------------------------------------


The only thing that I have figured out is the intro/verse section to
"Talk About the Passion". For what it's worth, here it is :

1:
2: 1 0 1 0
3: 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 0 0 0 0
4: 0 0 0 2 4 0 0 0 2 4 0 2 0 0 0
5: 3 2
6:

Make sure you try this, because I have a hard time remembering what I
play without a guitar in my hands. The second part (after the double
notes) may be off a little bit. They are based on the C and G
chords, though.




Perfect Circle
==============


{Some of the chords in this song tend to elude me}

F F/G D F F/G G
Put your hair back you get to leave
F F/G D G
Eleven gallows on your sleeve
F F/G D F F/G G
Shallow figure winner's pain
F F/G D F G F Dm7
Eleven shadows way out of place
C F C Dm
Standing two sure shoulders high in the room

The last time through this part is :

C F C F
Standing two sure shoulders high in the room

{Same as before}

Pull your dress on and stay real close
Who might leave you where I left off
A perfect circle of acquaintances and friends
Drink another coin a phrase
Heaven assure shoulders high in the room

Try to win and suit your needs
Speak out sometimes and try to win
Standing two ___ shoulders high in the room




Sitting Still
=============

Note : In this song and many other REM songs, there is an A9 chord.
This chord can be interchanged with Asus2. Here is my favorite A9
position :

(E) -0- Its just like playing an A chord using a 5th fret
(B) -0- barre E chord. If you move it to the seventh fret,
(G) -6- it becomes a B11. On the 8th fret, its a Cmaj7. On
(D) -7- the 10th, its a D9add6. On the 3rd fret, its a very
(A) -7- pretty G6 chord. On the second, its a neat sounding F#
(E) -5- sort-of chord. On the first fret, Its a Mexican sounding
F chord.

A BaddE/F# is an easy chord. Don't play the A-string.
Obviously, you pick this chord - don't strum, It'll sound shitty.

BaddE/F# BaddE (normal)
(E) -0- -0-
(B) -0- -0- To switch between these chords, move
(G) -2- -2- only ONE finger.
(D) -4- -4-
(A) -x- -2-
(E) -2- -x-


{The G#m chord is actually played in an "open" style}

{Intro : A9 G#m F#m / A9 G#m B / }

E BaddE/F# BaddE
It's name a god we all agree
E BaddE/F# BaddE
Secret stop stop it well-read
E BaddE/F# BaddE
We could find it in the sieve
E BaddE/F# BaddE
We could gather throw a fit

B A
Up to par and Katie-bar the kitchen door but not me in
B A
See them try for the big kill wasting time sitting still

{Same as before}

I'm the sun and you can read
I'm the sun and you're not dead
We could find it in the sieve
We could gather throw a fit

{Same as intro}

I can hear you

You can gather when I talk talk until we're blue
You could get away from me get away from me

I can hear you
Can you hear me?




Shaking Through
===============


{Intro:}

(E) ---5---3---2---0---
(B) ---7---5---3---2---
(G) ---7---5---2---0---
(D) --steady 1/8 notes all the way

{once again, there's a melody line played on the E string with
the chords, it just alternates between D Dsus2 and Dsus4;
with the Bm chord, its easier to play a "cheater" chord (no barre)
then pick out the notes. Or I guess you could play straight chords if
you're a weenie}

D Bm D Bm
Could it be that one small voice doesn't count in the world
Em A Em A
Yellow like a geisha dawn deny it all the way

Could this be three beaten
Autumn marches on
Yellow like a geisha dawn deny it all the way

D A G (A) D A G
Shaking through all the day

Or have we gone way too far
Taking after rain
Yellow like a geisha dawn deny it all the way
Shaking through all the day
Shaking through opportune
Em A Em A
In my life

Is that a steal
Children of today on parade
Yellow like a geisha dawn deny it all the way
Shaking through all the day
{At the end, the chorus gets played a key up for a while, so it's
E B A .... then end on a big 'ol B}





We Walk
=======


{Intro: F Fmaj7 Dm Dm F Fmaj7 Dm Dm}

{On the C to Am stuff, It sounds good to walk the bass note of the C
chord down to a B before playing Am - just like Mikey Mills}

C Am C Am C Am C Am
Up the stairs to the landing up the stairs into the hall
C Am C Am C Am Em
Take oasis more odd spaces
F Fmaj7 Dm F G
We walk through the wood we walk
C Am C Am C Am C Am
Up the stairs to the landing up the stairs into the hall
C Am C Am C Am Em
Take oasis more odd spaces
F Fmaj7 Dm F G
We walk through the woods we walk

Am F Bb C Am F Bb C Am F Bb C Am F Bb {slide here}
Take oasis take oasis take oasis take oasis

Bb-B-C Am C Am C Am C Am
Up the stairs to the landing up the stairs into the hall
C Am C Am ......
Take oasis more odd spaces

{Same as before}

We walk through the world we walk
Up the stairs to the landing up the stairs into the hall
Take oasis more odd spaces
Up the stairs to the landing up the stairs into the hall
Take oasis more odd spaces
Up the stairs to the landing up the stairs into the hall
Into the hall
