Song:   The Apologist (by R.E.M.).
Album: 'Up'.

(NOTE: I'm not sure whether the second 'Am' is actually a 'C', as they
both work. So I've put them both in).

INTRO:  | Am/Bm | Am(C)/Bm | Am/Bm | Am(C)/Bm |

          Am      Bm   Am(C) Bm           Am        Bm     Am(C)  Bm
They call me the    apologist,      and now that I'm at peak,
         Am      Bm     Am(C)  Bm      Am  Bm              Am(C)  Bm
You know at first it really hurt, we joke about these things,
       Am      Bm      Am(C)   Bm      Am         Bm     Am(C)  Bm
I've skirted all my differences, but now I'm facing up,
   Am      Bm Am(C)  Bm         Am    Bm     Am(C)  Bm
I wanted to apologise         for everything I was, So,

C              D             F              G
I'm sorry, So sorry, So sorry, So sorry,
C               D              F           F
I'm sorry, So sorry, So sorry,

Am        Bm    Am(C)    Bm            Am       Bm     Am(C)  Bm
Did you understand me right? The people here are good.
      Am        Bm     Am(C)       Bm             Am    Bm  Am(C)  Bm
They tell me what I should have done, and offer what I could,
 Am  Bm   Am(C)  Bm     Am   Bm  Am(C)    Bm
I'm good, all is good,     All's well, no complaints,
Am      Bm    Am(C) Bm        Am Bm       Am(C)   Bm
When I feel regret,               I get down on my knees and pray,

C                                 D
I'm sorry (So sorry), So sorry (So sorry),
F                                G
So sorry (So sorry), So sorry (So sorry),
C                              D
I'm sorry (So sorry), So sorry (So sorry),
F                              F
 So sorry (So sorry),

| Am/Bm | Am(C)/Bm | Am/Bm | Am(C)/Bm |

C               D                F                   G
I live a simple life, unfettered by complex sweets,
C                              D                       F            F
You think this isn't me? Don't be weak, There I go.
Am      Bm    Am(C) Bm    Am    Bm   Am(C)    Bm
I'm so sorry,

Am       Bm     Am(C)   Bm        Am        Bm       Am(C)   Bm
Thank you for being there for me, thank you for listening, goodbye,

Am       Bm     Am(C)   Bm        Am        Bm       Am(C)   Bm

Am       Bm     Am(C)  Bm        Am        Bm         Am(C)   Bm
  I can forfeit selfishness,         I hope for you that you apply,
       Am      Bm    Am(C) Bm        Am        Bm       Am(C)   Bm
This happiness,               This peacefulness.

 C                             D                       F    F
  You think this isn't me? That's so sweet .
   Am      Bm    Am(C) Bm     Am    Bm   Am(C)     Bm
