LOSING MY RELIGION ACOUSTIC by R.E.M
tabbed by Jonathan Doyle

This is an alternate way to play the song that sounds great fingerpicked
on an acoustic, especially if you're a solo guy playing around town.
It's still in the same key but sounds a little richer, I think.

Dmaj6add9  Dm                   Em
        Oh life    is bigger,    it's bigger than you.
            Dm                              Em
And you are not me, the lengths that I will go to.
                           Dm
The distance in your eyes.
Em                         Dm              Dmaj6add9
   Oh no, I've said too    much, I've said enough.
                         Dm                  Em
That's me in the corner,    That's me in the spot light,
                    Dm           Em
Losing my religion.    Trying to keep up with you.
      Dm
And I don't know if I can do it.
Em                         Dm                    Dmaj6add9
   Oh no, I've said too    much, I haven't said enough.

                           F
I thought that I heard you laughing.
F                Dmaj6add9     Dm
I thought that I heard     you sing.
  F                     Dmaj6add9  Dm
I think I thought I saw you        try.

          Dm
Every whisper,
             Em                                 Dm
Every waking hour, I'm choosing my confessions.
          Em
Trying to keep eye on you.
       Dm
Like a hurt lost and blinded fool, fool.
Em                            Dm            Dmaj6add9
   Oh no, I've said too much.    I said enough.
               Dm               Em
Consider this,    consider this hint of the century.
               Dm                Em
Consider this,    the slip, that brought me to my knees pale.
Dm                               Em
What if all these fantasies come    flaming aground.
         Dm       Dmaj6add9
Now I've said too much.

                           F
I thought that I heard you laughing.
F                Dmaj6add9     Dm
I thought that I heard     you sing.
  F                     Dmaj6add9  Dm
I think I thought I saw you        try.

C                 Dm
That was just a dream.
C                 Dm                                Dm
  That was just a dream.   That's me in the corner.
                 Em                              Dm
That's me in the spot light, losing my religion.
          Em                       Dm
Trying to keep up with you.  And I don't know if I can do it.
Em                         Dm
   Oh no, I've said too    much.
                 Dmaj6add9
I haven't said enough.

                           F
I thought that I heard you laughing.
F                Dmaj6add9     Dm
I thought that I heard     you sing.
  F                     Dmaj6add9  Dm
I think I thought I saw you        try.

    F                     Dmaj6add9   Dm
But that was just a dream,            try, cry, why try.
F                        Dmaj6add9  Dm            Dmaj6add9
That was just a dream,   just a     dream, just a dream, dream.

End on Em
