Lyrics:

hey hey.

I was hell
sarcastic silver swell.
that day it rained
tough spun. hard won. no
ocean flower aquarium
badlands. give a hand.
honey dipt. film flam
hey hey. hey hey.
that cat can walk like a big bad man.

so happy to show us
I ate the lotus.
say haven't yoou noticed?
I ate the lotus

storefront window, I reflect.
just last week I merely heck
tip the scale. I was hell
picked me up, then I fell.
who's this stranger? crowbar spine
...and I feel fine.
let it rain, rain, rain
bring my happy back again.

so happy to show us
I ate the lotus.
say haven't yoou noticed?
I ate the lotus

let it rain, rain, rain
save me from myself again
wash away my ugly sins
opposing thumb, dorsal fin
that monkey died for my grin
bring my happy back again
let it rain, rain, rain
bring my happy back again

so happy to show us
I ate the lotus.
say haven't yoou noticed?
I ate the lotus
I ate the lotus
I ate the lotus

here's what you've got:
F                Dm          G
can't you see i need nothing too deep
(or something like that)
here's what i think it is:
F (xxx565) Faug5 (xxx665) Dm/F (xxx765) G (open)
can't you see      i need    nothing   too deep
(Faug5:133221 or XXX665)

Here's the guitar solo from Suspicion... it's pretty heavily modulated
so expect me to be off on a few counts.

Updated chords for Suspicion using basics from DJ Allen, with a slight 
variation on his use of G and Bb. I've tried G (320033) and 
G/Bb (x10033) and found it a nice option. You decide.
Also added extra chords at the end of the chorus, which also form the 
repeat at the  end of the song.

I've only added the effected parts of the song here. Repeat througout as 
needed.

HOPE

C

you want to go out friday
and you go forever
you know that it sounds childish
that you've dreamt of aligators
you hope that we are with you
and you hope you're recognized
you want to go forever
you see it in my eyes
     F
I'm lost in the confusion
and it doesn't seem to matter
     C
you really can't believe it
and you hope it's getting better

you want to trust the doctors
their procedure is the best
but the last try was a failure
and the intern was a mess
and they did the same to Matthew
and he bled 'til sunday night
they're saying don't be frightened
but you're weakened by the sight of it
     F
you lock into a pattern
and you know that it's the last ditch
        C
you're trying to see through it
and it doesn't make sense
              F
but they're saying don't be frightened
and they're killing alligators
             C
and they're hog-tied
and accepting of the struggle

you want to trust religion
and you know it's allegory
but the people who are followers
have written their own story
so you look up to the heavens
and you hope to see a spaceship
and it's something from your childhood
you're thinking don't be frightened

     Em
you want to climb the ladder
you want to see forever
     C
you want to go out friday
and you want to go forever
         F
and you want to cross your dna
                                  C
to cross your dna with something reptile
             F
amd you're questioning the sciences
and questioning religion
         C
you're looking like an idiot
and you no longer care
          F
and you want to bridge the schism,
                         C
a built-in mechanism to protect you
            F
and you're looking for salvation
and you're looking for deliverance
        C
you're looking like an idiot
and you no longer care
you want to climb the ladder
you want to go forever
you want to go out friday
you want to go forever

At my most beatiful - R.E.M.

One of the many great songs from the new album, I just picked it out,
believe it's correct. The bass notes on F/A and Bb/F sound a lot better
if played on a real bass and/or a piano, but if you only have a guitar,
I guess that's better then nothing...

Chords used: 
F: 133211
Am: x02210
D: xx0232
Gm: 355333

Lyrics:

I've found a way to make you
I've found a way
a way to make you smile

I read bad poetry
into your machine
I save your messages
just to hear your voice.
you always listen carefully
to awkwards rhymes.
you always say your name.
like I woulden't know it's you,
at your most beautiful.

I've found a way to make you
I've found a way
a way to make you smile

at my most beautiful
I count your eyelashes secretly.
with every one, whisper I love you.
I let you sleep.
I know you're closed eye watching me,
listening.
I thought I saw a smile.

I've found a way to make you
I've found a way
a way to make you smile

THE APOLOGIST

tabbed by miKe. (ericseis@hotmail.com)
[second half of solo from Chris Lawrence]

This is a cool song played mostly by jamming on Am (open or fifth fret).  
Just pile on the distortion and hit single or pairs of strings in the chord
pretty much at random.  As long as you keep the 'feel' of the song you can't go
far wrong.

Near the end of the song, as things lose what little definition they had,
just attack the Am(V) and interject with little riffs and jams.

Little Riffs:

e|--7-8b-7-5----5----   or      e|--7-8-/11--   perhaps  e|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5---
b|-----------8-(5)---  maybe    b|-----------    this    b|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5---

Am riff: (this is the odd organ backing)
g|--6-8--6/8/6--
d|--7-9--7/9/7--

End riff: (this is the riff that gets played in the final 'bridge')
g|------4--4-5
d|--7--7------

SAD PROFESSOR


From: JamieWire@postmaster.co.uk

Here's the correct version as played by Mike Mills on Rockpalast.

Tuning - some kind of open D.

E (bass string) A D A D D (treble string)

Performance notes: the double tuning of the 'b' and the 'e' to get two 'd'
notes gives a really ethnic kind of drone. Mike has strong hands - this
song is not easy to play unless you're a barre master!

Mix up and down strokes. Listen to the rhythm - these are the notes but
they're tabbed wrong!

From: DJ Allan (djgreedo@hotmail.com)


Only 4 chords:
D (open) A(barre) G(barre)  F(barre) )(E-shaped barres)

The transitions from A-G and G-A and A-F are usually slides.

In the chorus the song skips two beats (after 'i started a chapter' and 
'everybody hates a drunk') so be careful.  

If anything's wrong,  correct it and curse me for being incompetent.

YOU'RE IN THE AIR

From: Tom Davies (raoul2001@hotmail.com)

Here is a tab for some bits of "You're In the Air" - probably one of my 
favourite tracks off of "Up", and therefore, the one no-one has 
transcribed yet. (If these tabs don't look like they make sense, it's 
because of the unequal spacing for letters in my e-mail program - in a 
plain text format (i.e. in Notepad or something like that), the number 
of dashes is fine!)

Some of the guitar parts are swamped underneath keyboards and organs and 
other antiquated analogue noise, so I haven't got them (yet!).

The main verse riff that accompanies "you wanted a challenge that's 
calling you higher" is something like this....


E-------------------|-----------------
B-------------------|-----------------
G-------------------|------------7-9--
D---7-10-7----9-----|---7-10-7-9------
A-0--------10---10--|-0---------------
E-------------------|-----------------

(The two sections are split up so you can easily read them - it's not an 
attempt to use bars or anything musical!)

This call and response pattern repeats throughout the verse until, "You 
say you want me..." which is then kinda blasted out by the organs and 
bass. The general chord pattern is, however....

E-3---3---0---0---3---0----0--------0--
B-2---2---1---1---0---1----1--------1--
G-3---3---0---0---0---2----2--------0--
D-0---0---2---2---0---2----0--------2--
A-X---X---3---3---2---0----2--------3--
E-X---X---X---X---3---0----0--------0--

  D / D / C / C / G / Am / Am w/B / C

You may want to just arpeggio these chords loosely until someone knows 
what the actual pattern is.

Then into verse two - "brighten the stars, the weather is lifting". 
Verse pattern is used again.

The second chorus is the same until the end when there's a little solo 
bit (dead easy) which I think Peter plays on his electric sitar. It 
goes...

E--------------------------------------------
B-----------------------------13-------------
G--14-14-12-14-14-12-14-14-12----14-12-12-14-  (last two notes performed 
D--------------------------------------------    in a sweet hammer-on)
A--------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------

This is repeated twice and then a final time, with a bit on the end.

E--------------------------------------------|---------
B-----------------------------13-------------|---------
G--14-14-12-14-14-12-14-14-12----14-12-12-14-|-7-9-9--- (more 
hammer-ons)
D--------------------------------------------|---------
A--------------------------------------------|-------0-
E--------------------------------------------|---------

This open A string then goes straight back into the verse pattern for 
verse three - "I want the stars to know they've won".

Etcetera, etcetera.

At the end, as Pete's doing his 'cer-azy' feedback, etc., there is an 
alternate bit to the verse pattern, which goes.

E--------------
B--------------
G--------------
D---7-10-7--9--
A-0--------10--
E--------------

And that's as much as I know! Please - someone with a sampler get rid of 
all those organs and find out what the nice jangly bits are in the 
chorus and the solo bits!



Lyrics:

you wanted a challenge that's calling you higher I landed on my feet by
crawling I
remember standing alone trying to forget you idling I hate to admit that
that's my
reference point but there it is you say you want me

I'm what you found I'm upside sown you're in the air you're in the air
and I am breathing

brighten the staars the weather is lifting the heavens love a love like
this it's pulling
you higher twist it and turn this around it lights from within it
dribbles your chin now
brings a smile I'm lost again I'm lost again

I'm what you found I'm upside sown you're in the air you're in the air
and I am breathing
you

I want the stars to know they've won if only to beguile the sky has
opened up again in
heaven reconciled I want you naked I want you wild I want the stars to
know they win 
give me that smile just give it me just turn it on I'm lost again

I'm what you found I'm upside down you're in the air I'm what you found
I'm upside down
you're in the air I'm what you found I'm upside down you're everywhere
you're in the air
and I am breathing you

  Hi.  I'm a huge fan, and I love your site.  I have the Automatic for the People
songbook, and I'm going to get Out of Time.  I play guitar, and I'm going to start
mandolin.  Your site has been very helpful to me.
  I think I figured out at least part of You're in the Air.  Right after the
chorus, that sitar (I think that's what it is) plays a really cool riff.  I think
this is how it is (on the high e string)

-7-7-5-7-7-5-7-7-5-10-7-5-7-

I've never written tab before, just music, so I apologize if that looks weird,
but that is how it goes.  Remember, it is on the high e string.  If my tab is
incorrect, you can probably figure it out by using the same format on the
string in various places.

Please mail me and tell me if you like it.

Here's the tab I've found around the net, hope it helps.

YOU'RE IN THE AIR

From: Tom Davies (raoul2001@hotmail.com)

Here is a tab for some bits of "You're In the Air" - probably one of my 
favourite tracks off of "Up", and therefore, the one no-one has 
transcribed yet. (If these tabs don't look like they make sense, it's 
because of the unequal spacing for letters in my e-mail program - in a 
plain text format (i.e. in Notepad or something like that), the number 
of dashes is fine!)
Some of the guitar parts are swamped underneath keyboards and organs and 
other antiquated analogue noise, so I haven't got them (yet!).
The main verse riff that accompanies "you wanted a challenge that's 
calling you higher" is something like this....


E-------------------|-----------------
B-------------------|-----------------
G-------------------|------------7-9--
D---7-10-7----9-----|---7-10-7-9------
A-0--------10---10--|-0---------------
E-------------------|-----------------

(The two sections are split up so you can easily read them - it's not an 
attempt to use bars or anything musical!)
This call and response pattern repeats throughout the verse until, "You 
say you want me..." which is then kinda blasted out by the organs and 
bass. The general chord pattern is, however....

E-3---3---0---0---3---0----0--------0--
B-2---2---1---1---0---1----1--------1--
G-3---3---0---0---0---2----2--------0--
D-0---0---2---2---0---2----0--------2--
A-X---X---3---3---2---0----2--------3--
E-X---X---X---X---3---0----0--------0--

D / D / C / C / G / Am / Am w/B / C

You may want to just arpeggio these chords loosely until someone knows 
what the actual pattern is.
Then into verse two - "brighten the stars, the weather is lifting". 
Verse pattern is used again.
The second chorus is the same until the end when there's a little solo 
bit (dead easy) which I think Peter plays on his electric sitar. It 
goes...

E--------------------------------------------
B-----------------------------13-------------
G--14-14-12-14-14-12-14-14-12----14-12-12-14- (last two notes performed 
D--------------------------------------------  in a sweet hammer-on)
A--------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------

This is repeated twice and then a final time, with a bit on the end.

E--------------------------------------------|---------
B-----------------------------13-------------|---------
G--14-14-12-14-14-12-14-14-12----14-12-12-14-|-7-9-9--- (more hammer-ons)
D--------------------------------------------|---------
A--------------------------------------------|-------0-
E--------------------------------------------|---------

This open A string then goes straight back into the verse pattern for 
verse three - "I want the stars to know they've won".
Etcetera, etcetera.
At the end, as Pete's doing his 'cer-azy' feedback, etc., there is an 
alternate bit to the verse pattern, which goes.

E--------------
B--------------
G--------------
D---7-10-7--9--
A-0--------10--
E--------------

And that's as much as I know! Please - someone with a sampler get rid of 
all those organs and find out what the nice jangly bits are in the 
chorus and the solo bits!





Lyrics:

you wanted a challenge that's calling you higher I landed on my feet by
crawling I
remember standing alone trying to forget you idling I hate to admit that
that's my
reference point but there it is you say you want me
I'm what you found I'm upside sown you're in the air you're in the air
and I am breathing
brighten the staars the weather is lifting the heavens love a love like
this it's pulling
you higher twist it and turn this around it lights from within it
dribbles your chin now
brings a smile I'm lost again I'm lost again
I'm what you found I'm upside sown you're in the air you're in the air
and I am breathing
you
I want the stars to know they've won if only to beguile the sky has
opened up again in
heaven reconciled I want you naked I want you wild I want the stars to
know they win 
give me that smile just give it me just turn it on I'm lost again
I'm what you found I'm upside down you're in the air I'm what you found
I'm upside down
you're in the air I'm what you found I'm upside down you're everywhere
you're in the air
and I am breathing you

To Chris
    My name is Adam Bruce and this is the first song I've posted on the net and
I think this site is great.  I noticed you were missing the chords and Tab for
You're in the air, so here is the chord sheet.  The Tab may follow if I get the time.
Anyway this should make the archive more complete, I think you'll find it is very
close to the actual, but as I'm sure you know some REM song's will never sound perfect
by anyone else because of all the technical changes and mixing.  I've had a lot of music
from your site and its very good so keep it up.  I also have some small corrections to
make to strange currencies, but I'll do this some other time.
If you ever want to talk REM, or anything else E-mail me any time.
    Cheers!

Em

As the sun comes up, as the moon goes down

long ago I was brought into
this life a little lamb

a little lamb

courageous, stumbling

(same chords again)

Say "keep within the boundaries if you want to play"
Say "contradiction only makes it harder"
how can I be
what I want to be?
when all I want to do is strip away
these stilled constraints
and crush this charade
shred this sad masquerade
I don't need no persuading
I'll trip, fall, pick myself up and
walk unafraid
I'll be clumsy instead
hold my love me or leave me high

If I have a bag of rocks to carry as I go
I just want to hold my head up high
I don't care what I have to step over
I'm prepared to look you in the eye
look me in the eye
and if you see familiarity
then celebrate the contradiction
help me when I fall to
walk unafraid
I'll be clumsy instead
hold my love me or leave me high
walk unafraid
I'll be clumsy instead
hold my love me or leave me high

distortion should do the trick just as well.)


Verses:
The chords aren't actually played. In the verses, instead Peter 
just uses an e-bow and plays the root notes, i.e.

   (A)   (F)   (A)   (F)        for the Am F   
E|--5~~~~/1~~~~/5~~~~/1~~~~--   progression     
  and
    (D)   (C)    (D)   (C)      for the D C
E|--10~~~~/8~~~~/10~~~~/8~~~~-- progression

Peter doesn't this all the time during the verses, sometimes he'll just kinda'
slide up and down a string, making eerie noises, while the bass just thumps out:

   (A)              (F)                (A)
E|--5---5---5-5--5---/1---1---1-1---1---/5-   and so on.


Chorus:
The Em - G - D chords are played as normal in the chorus.

And the intro riff twice to end.

Why Not Smile - R.E.M.

(Oxford American Version)
From: Matt Egan (mde1583@rit.edu)

This is a great, mellow tune from the Oxford American Magazine "Why Not Smile."
Here are the lyrics, chords and a bit of tab.
I don't think that this is perfect, but it's a easonable facsimile, and I think
it sounds decent. 
This is the first tab that I've posted, so I'd love to hear some feedback. Thanks.

The rest of the song pretty much follows that pattern.
You should probably be able to figure it out. 
If not, drop a line, and I'll see what I can do. 




At the (*) there is some little fill. It's something like this:

PARAKEET
here's my shot at "parakeet," which i think is the best song on UP.
it's a great sound, great especially for halloween. it was kinda hard
to get the chords considering that there is no guitar in this song
(okay there might be some weird riffs played in the chorus),  it's
keyboard transcribed for guitar, so the chords might not be exactly
right, but i think they're pretty close. i know that the bass notes
are right, at least. if the chords don't sound right, try out power
chords, those are alright in this song. in fact, there's one chord
that i'm a little iffy on, and that's the C# in the verses. you be the
judge. i'm pretty sure about the rest. enjoy. 
 
here's that spooky-sounding riff that mike plays on the keyboard in the chorus:
d--1-2-4-5

        G        F#m      E
you wake up in the morning
       D       C#        E
and fall out of your bed
  D      C#          E
mean cats eat parakeets
  D                   C      Eb
and this one's nearly dead.
  G             F#m      E
you dearly wish the wind shift
         D        C#         E
and greasy windows slide
  D     C#         E
open for the parakeet
            D        C     Eb
who's colored bitter lime. 
 
  Em (riff)   C (riff) 
open the window
       Am              Bm   D
and lift into your dreams
 Em (riff) C (riff) Am             D Ebm
lately, baby, you can barely breathe.
 
(chords same as above)
a broken wrist, an accident
you know that something's wrong
you fold the leavings of your past 
no one knows you've gone. 
the sunspot flares of the early 
nineties light up your wings.
and scan the shortwave radio
it's tracking outer range. 
 
open the window 
and lift into your dreams
baby, baby, you can start to breathe
 
the tectonic dispatcher shifts
to smooth the ocean floor
and flattens out to warmer winds
of brisbane's sunny shore. 
where buddhas tend to mending wrists
a tea made from the leaves
of eucalyptus fragrances
and coriander seeds. 
 
open your window
and lift into a dream
baby, baby, baby starts to breathe
open the window 
and lift into a dream 
baby, baby, baby starts to breathe

  
you wake up in the morning
to warm pacific breeze
where means cats chew on licorice
         D        C           G#m 
and cannot climb the trees. 

end on some G#m riffs.

notes...i'm open to suggestions as to what that last chord is.
it's really cool, and it's definetly a chord not used anywhere
else in the song. okay, i think that's it.

    Ab      Gm     F
you wake up in the morning 
    Ab       Gm     F
and fall out of your bed
Ab       Gm       F
mean cat eat parakeets
    D#         C#     C
and this one's nearly dead.
    Ab      Gm      F
you dearly wish the wind shift
    Ab      Gm     E
and greasy windows slide
Ab   Gm      F
open for the parakeet
      D#      C#     C
who's colored bitter lime.

the rest is basically the same, because the final verse ends on that
weird chord, here it is:

EMPHYSEMA

this is a cool instrumental, and although there isn't any guitar on the track, 
i went ahead and tabbed out the bass and organ or whatever that instrument 
is -- accordian? moog synth? i don't know. a note about the tab: the way 
its spaced and typed, the organ is above the bass, and the bass notes are 
played wherever they're tabbed in relation to the organ -- if a bass note 
is directly under an organ note, they're played at the same time. if it's 
between two notes, well, i think you can figure it out. i didn't tab out 
the organ for the bridge, i figured it'd be too much so i just typed something 
else. i think that's it. questions? comments? David Wagner (wagner@mindspring.com)
