3rd fret
Uberlin by R.E.M, off their upcoming album "Collapse Into Now"

Took me about an hour to work this out, and to me it sounds pretty right. Hopefully 
there aren't any problems with it, but if there are, feel free to send an email to 
Daniel_Wilding@hotmail.com so I can fix them up.


Capo 3rd.

hey now
take your pills, and
hey now
B (or Bm)
make your breakfast
hey now
 G                    Dsus2
comb your hair and off to work

(repeat Em-G-Dsus2-B -> 
Em-G-Dsus2 throughout all verses)

C                                   Bm
i know, i know, i know what I am chasing
C                                   Bm
i know, i know, i know that this is changing me

C     G           Em        Dsus2       C
I am flying on a star into a meteor tonight
C            G              Dsus2
I am flying on a star, a star, a star
C          G              Em
I will make it through the day
       Dsus2                 C
and then the day becomes the night
C       G                Dsus2
I will make it through the night

Verse 1:

hey now
take your pills
hey now
make your breakfast
hey now
comb your hair and off to work

crash land
no illusions
no collision
no intrusion
my imagination run away

Verse 2:

ah hey now
take the u-bahn
five stops, change the station
hey now
don't forget: the change will save you

hey now
count a thousand milion people
that's astounding
chasing through the city with their stars so bright

Verse 3:

well I don't mind repeating
i am not complete
I have never been the gifted type

well hey man
tell me something
are you off to somewhere?
do you want to go with me tonight?

Last Prechorus: (slightly different words, but the same phrasing and chords)
I know, I know that this is changing
we walk the streets to feel the ground
I'm chasing through Berlin

I think the Dsus2 chords in t he chorus maybe Bm?

Great job though. I love this song. I hope the rest of the new record is as good as this song.

Thanks again man.
