       Pop Song 89
       ===========


       The tab to the opening riff of Pop Song '89 is:

       (E) --8-5-------------------------------------------|
       (B) ------8--------5--------------------------------|
       (G) -----------------7--5--7-s-9--7--7-h-9-p-7------|
       (D) -------------------------------------------5--7-|

       {Intro:    A  A  D D A A D D D   x  3}

         A        D        A           D
        Hello I saw you I know you I knew you
            A           D             A      D
        I think I can remember your name...name
       A   D   A  D

         A          D       A     D
        Hello I'm sorry I lost myself
            A        D               A        D
        I think I thought you were someone else

         E         G                D         BaddE
        Should we talk about the weather?
         E         G                D         B
        Should we talk about the government?

       {break:     B / / / B / / /  E / / / E7 / / /
                   B / / / B / / / E / / / D/Dsus4
         the melody on the break isn't too hard to pick out. The notes
         are real close to the chords - often in them.  I think its weird
         that Pete didn't play them on the acoustic version.}

        Hello my friend are you visible today?
        And no one ever knew that it could be so strange...strange
        Hello I'm sorry I lost myself
        I think I thought you were someone else

       {Intro: E B C G A       E B C G Bb}

       A                  D
        Sleep delays my life
                              A
        Where does the time go...go
                  D
        I don't know
                              A
        Sleep sleep sleepy head
                 D
        Wake it up...up
                              A
        You've got all your life
                  D
        Way up ahead

         E      B     C    G        A
        Dreams they complicate my life
         E      B     C    G        Bb
        Dreams they compliment my life

        I've seen you laying pined
        I've seen you laying pined
        Life is rough...rough
        I've seen you laying down...down
        With the loving kind
        I know life is hard...hard
        Well now
        Where to turn?

       {break   A  D    A   D    w/  13  alarm clocks going off at once}

        This time there's no escape
        To dreamtime


       You Are The Everything
       ======================

       {Intro   Am}
       G                                  D
       Sometimes I feel like I can't even sing
                                 G
       I'm very scared for this world
                           D
       I'm very scared for me
                          G
       Eviscerate your memory
                G
       Here's a scene
              D
       You're in the back seat laying down
           G
       The windows wrap around you
           D
       The sound of the travel and the engine
       C               G                  C
       All you hear is time stand still in travel
                                 G
       You feel such peace and absolue
                                  C
       The stillness still that doesn't end
                          G
       But slowly drifts into sleep
             D
       The stars are the greatest thing you've ever seen
            D
       And they're there for you
            D                            G
       For you alone you are the everything
            G                 D
       I think about this world a lot and I cry
             G                         D
       And I've seen the films and the eyes
                         G
       But I'm in this kitchen
                       D
       Everything is beautiful
                       G
       And she is so beautiful
                           D
       She is so young and old
                         C
       I look at her and I see the beauty
               G
       Of the light of music
             C                                 G
       The voice is talking somewhere in the house
                                 C
       Late spring and you're drifting off to sleep

                   D
       With your teeth in your mouth
       D
       You are here with me
       D
       You are here with me
       D                                 Am
       You have been here and you are everything

       Stand
       =====


       {intro:  E   A   B}

          E           A                B
        Stand in the place where you live
         A    A/G# E
        Now face North
         E            A
        Think about direction
                 F#        B  A    E
        Wonder why you haven't before
              E            A               B
        Now stand in the place where you were
         A  A/G#  E
        Now face West
         E                 A
        Think about the place where you live
         F#              B  A   E
        Wonder why you haven't before

         E             A       C#       C    B
        If you are confused check with the sun
         E        A         G        A B
        Carry a compass to help you along
              E         A       C#    C   B
        Your feet are going to be on the ground
              E         A       G     G A B
        Your head is there to move you around

        Your feet are going to be on the ground
        Your head is there to move you around
        If wishes were trees the trees would be falling
        Listen to reason
        The reason is calling

       {at the end of this song, it goes up a key, so the chords are:
       F#  B  C# .....
       then they go up again to:
       G#  C#  D# .....
       however, the song ends on:
            E
       so STAND!


       World Leader Pretend
       ====================

       {Between the Em and Bm chords play this ----
         (D) -0-2-4-2-0-                  }

       {Intro  Em   Bm   Em   Bm  Em   Bm    G     A }

         D            G    C                 D
        I sit at my table and wage war on myself
         D   G               C                  D
        It seems like it's all...it's all for nothing
         D           G         C
        I know the barricades, and
                      D             D
        I know the mortar in the wall breaks
             G                  C                 D
        I recognize the weapons, I used them well

         Em  Bm
         Em                  Bm
        This is my mistake. Let me make it good
         Em                     Bm                            G    A
        I raised the wall, and I will be the one to knock it down

        I've a rich understanding of my finest defenses
        I proclaim that claims are left unstated,
        I demand a rematch
        I decree a stalemate
        I divine my deeper motives
        I recognize the weapons
        I've practiced them well. I fitted them myself

        It's amazing what devices you can sympathize...empathize
        This is my mistake.  Let me make it good
        I raised the walls, and I will be the one to knock it down

         Am            C          Am                     C
        Reach out for me and hold me tight.  Hold that memory
            Am           C           Am             A           G
        Let my machine talk to me.  Let my machine talk to me

        This is my world
        And I am the world leader pretend
        This is my life
        And this is my time
        I have been given the freedom
        To do as I see fit
        It's high time I've razed the walls
        That I've constructed

        It's amazing what devices you can sympathize...emapathize
        This is my mistake. Let me make it good
        I raised the walls, and I will be the one to knock it down

        You fill in the mortar. You fill in the harmony
        You fill in the mortar. I raised the walls
        And I'm the only one
        I will be the one to knock it down
       {End on Em}

       Hairshirt
       =========


       {This song repeats these 8 measures throughout the verses:
       G / / / G / / / A7 / / / A7 / / / C / / / C / / / G / / / G / / /}

        I am not the type of dog
        That could keep you waiting
        For no good reason
        Run a carbon-black test on my jaw
        And you will find it's all been said before

         G    A7             C                      Am
        I can swing my megaphone and long arm the rest
               Am
        It's easier and better
                                    C      C
        To just beat it from the chest
        Of desire       G
        {verse}
        I could walk into this room
        And the waves of conversation are enough
        To knock you down in the undertow
        So alone so alone in my life
        Feed me banks of light
        And hang your hairshirt on the lowest rung
        It's a beautiful life
        And I can hang my hairshirt
        Away up high in the attic of the wrong dog's life chest
        Or bury it at sea
        All my life I've searched for this

        Here I am here I am in your life
        It's a beautiful life
        My life
        It's a beautiful life
        Your life


       (Untitled) - Pieces printed in the 1988 fan club holiday card
       =============================================================


       C
       This world is big and so-awake
       G                   C
       I stayed up late to hear your voice
       C
       This light is here to keep you warm
                                      G
       This song is here to keep you strong


       I made a list of things to say
       But all I really want to say
       All I really want to say is
       Hold her and keep him strong
       While I'm away from here
       Hold her and keep her strong
       While I'm away from here

       {Break :    F7   C   F7   G}

       I've seen the world and so-awake
       And stay up late to hear me sing
       Just hold her
       I've seen the world and so-awake
       And stay up late to hear me sing
       Just hold him
       Hold her and keep her strong
       While I'm away from here
       Hold him and keep him strong
       While I'm away from here
