tainted obligations

R.E.M





"TAINTED OBLIGATIONS"  (As performed by the Community Trolls)

Chords by:  Chris Bray  (cbray@comp.uark.edu)

(This song has Michael Stipe singing lead vocals, and can be found on a number
of R.E.M. bootlegs, including "Those Were the Days", "Life's Rich Pageant
and More".  I'm also pretty sure that Matthew Sweet is singing backing vocals.)


(D)                        (G)           (D)
I saw the shoals at night, with the moon above.
                          (A7sus4)
I felt an obligation, and heard your voice again.
(D)                             (G)
If you were here once, you were here a hundred times.
(D)                          (A7sus4)
If I reached out tonight, I found I couldn't fight it.
B                A                             B
If you were here once, you were here a hundred times.
        A
Ohhhhhh


D                         G                  D
Best as a wishing star, I saw you better far away,
                           A7sus4
and I felt obligation, and heard your voice again.
D                       G                D
Hear the rush of water, passing over the shoals.
                             A7sus4
Hear my heartbeat rather, if I reached out tonight.
B              A                        B
If I reach out tonight and find I can't fight it,
                A
and look to the stars, and wander towards a

D                       G                     D
heartfelt obligation, a place that you called home
                     A7sus4
and heard your voice again, but it's too late.
D                                 G
You left long ago, and now you're probably dead and gone,
    D                      A7sus4                     B           A
and I'm left here with the water and the shoals and a tainted obligation.
B       A
Ohhhhhh


D  G  D  A7sus4
D  G  D  A7sus4


B           A
Tainted obligations
B           A
Tainted obligations

B       A
Ohhhhhh
B       A
Ohhhhhh
