                      She Just Wants To Be - R.E.M
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: acoustic-fish
Tuning: EADGBEe (standard)

ok, this is my first tab, so i dont know how its going to turn out. the song is actually 
with two guitars, rhythm and lead. the rhythm guitar plays the verse and bridge, and 
lead plays the solos, and the chorus riff. i have 'simplified' it into one guitar part,
but that means that i havent tabbed the chords for the chorus. the timing is off as well, 
to the song.

verse
the verse is arpeggios with a few hammer-on's. the number of A minors changes in each 
listen to the song for the exact timing
here are the complete lyrics for this verse:

its not that she walked away. her world got smaller.
all the usual places, the same destinations, only something's changed
its not that she wasnt rewarded with pomegranite afternoons
of mingus, chet baker and chess. its not stampeding fortune
or prim affectations. she's off on her own and she knows now

bridge
not sure about this bit, its where a whole load of other stuff comes in and muffles it slightly.

 A|---0-------------|---3-------------|---0-------------|---3-------------|
 E|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|

chorus
the chorus riff is quite hard to hear above the singing, but a friend of mine let me 
a live recording that they got as part of the REM fan club where you can hear it a lot 
this is the best i could do with it...
lyrics:

she just wants to be somewhere, she just wants to be
she just wants to be somewhere, she just wants to be

 e|---------0-------|-0-----3---------|---------0-------|-----------------|
 B|-----1-3---1--0--|----3------------|-----1-3---1--3--|-----------------|
 G|---2-------------|-----------------|---2-------------|-----------------|
 D|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
 A|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
 E|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
     she...      be      somewhere          she...   be

 e|---------0-------|-0-----3---------|---------0-------|-----------------|
 B|-----1-3---1--0--|----3------------|-----1-3---1--3--|-----------------|
 G|---2-------------|-----------------|---2-------------|-----------------|
 D|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
 A|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
 E|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
     she...      be      somewhere          she...   be

verse 2
as i said before, the number of A minors changes for each verse, so here is the amount 
the second verse...

    Am                Am             Am           Am
its not that the transparency of her earlier incarnations
           Am             C  Em    Am          Am               Am
now looked back on werent rich and loaded with beautiful vulnerability
    C       Em
and now she knows

Bridge
with the lyrics:
Dm F Dm             F
     now is greater, and she knows that

Chorus

verse 3
    Am                       Am
its not like if angels could truly look down
Am                        Am
stir up the trappings and light on the ground
  Am                     Am              Am              Am
remind us of what, when, why or who that how's up to us, me and you
    Am                      Am           Am
and now is greater than the whole of the past
               C       Em
is greater and now she knows that
