Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Waiting For The Rapture   Oasis

Title: Waiting For The Rapture
Artist: Oasis
Album: Dig Out Your Soul

Notes: I based this tab on the alternate recording released on the bonus disc to Dig Out
Soul.  It’s a much more acoustic style song.  This tab can still be applied to the song
the regular release, as it’s just “open neck” translations of the power chords used in 
album version.

Tempo: The tempo of this version is best described as a ticking clock.  With the first
of the chord being played in a down-stroke (representing the tic) and the second part of
chord being played in an up-stroke (representing the tock).  This style of play creates 
very syncopated sound and feeling.

Hope this version proves better than the previous submissions

Verse 1:
Am                            Dsus2
I still don't know what I was waiting for
Fmaj7                            Am
A big love to fall down from the sky
Am                            Dsus2
She took my hand and picked me up off the floor
Fmaj7                   Am
She put an apple in my eye

           C            Am
I said I'm tired__________
     Fmaj7                     Am
Come get me off the merry-go-round
    C                   Am
I'm wired__________________
     Fmaj7                     Am
Come feed me and then bring me down

Verse 2:
Am                 Dsus2
She come up to me, I can't remember what she said
Fmaj7                                    Am
Cause I was in a trance and I forgot it all
Am                                   Dsus2
I bet you don't know about all that, Revolution in her head
Fjam7                        Am
She make a lover seem so magical

             C           Am
She said I'm tired_________
     Fmaj7                     Am
Come get me off the merry-go-round
I'm wired
Well heaven must of sent you
To save me from the rapture... yeah, yeah, yeaaaaheeyy
