Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Reunion   Indigo Girls







REUNION (Amy Ray)
-----------------
[Amy plays C (x32010) rather than C(9); Emily plays C(9) as x32033.
 Also, Amy plays G as 320003, and Emily plays 320033.]
[The "la la" part might be A A D E rather than A E D E; it's hard
 to tell.  I usually play A E/A D E.] 
[The chords in the guitar solo are hard to figure out; the tablature
 is more important, anyway...]

    G           D          C(9)        D
Had guards like watchdogs, dogs in a manger
        G              D        C(9)          D
I could feel the protection, possession and anger
      G              D           C(9)       D
And I drove out of there with no one behind me
G         D           C(9)  D
  Feeling funny and free
 
All you pretty pretenders, negligent vendors
Aren't you precious inside
I have no need of anger with intimate strangers
And I got nothing to hide
 
I laughed as I said it, this is my situation
It's not pictures or privilege, it's just self-preservation
I don't want you to feel any obligation
It feels so funny to be free
 
All you pretty pretenders, negligent vendors
Aren't you precious inside
I have no need of anger with intimate strangers
And I got nothing to hide
 
Am  Am   Am  Am   Am  Am   Am  Am   Am  Am   Am  Am

We act empty and innocent, but we are fueled by distortions
                 (I                 remember         you)
Of lives led in discontent, trading misfortunes
   (When        we     were shiny  and  new; Now you)
'Cause faith is one thing that is hard to deliver
       (guard  your faith,         temper your speed)
 It feels so funny to be free
(It feels so funny to be free)
 
All you pretty pretenders, negligent vendors
Aren't you precious inside
I have no need of anger with intimate strangers
And I got nothing to hide
 
G     Dm         Esus   E    A   E   D   E
I got nothing to hi  -  i  - ide
A   E   D   E     A   E   D   E     A   E   D   E     A   E   D   E
Laa laa, la la la (etc.)
A   A   Am  Am
Laaaaa
D          Dsus       D          Dsus
All of us, all of us, all of us, all of us
 
Pretty pretenders, negligent vendors
Aren't we precious inside
I have no need of anger with intimate strangers
And I got nothing to hide
I got nothing to hide

I had guards like watchdogs, dogs in a manger
                  (I       remem    -    ber     you)

GUITAR SOLO
-----------
I'm pretty sure about the _notes_ in the guitar solo, but I don't know
exactly which fingerings Emily uses, and I'm even _less_ sure about which
chords Amy plays behind this solo.  I've included two versions of the
solo; the first one is low on the neck, using a lot of open strings, and
the second one is high up on the neck, using barres and stuff.  Feel free
to mix and match whichever is easier.  (And if anyone sees this in concert,
keep an eye on Emily's left hand and tell me how she plays it!)
