Lifes rich pageant album  R.E.M



       G(3) :  ------------0-2-0----


       D(2) :  --0-h-2-h-4-------4-0-  F# chord

               [F#]A birdy and a hand for l[A]ife's rich demand
The insurgency began and you missed it
       [F#]I looked for it and I f[A]ound it
       Miles Standish p[E]roud congratulate m[F#]e[F#7]
       When [D]the land and sky murders you    (???)
Life's rich demand creates supply and demand
Of the powers the only book that matters
Silence means security silence means approval
We have Zenith on the TV tiger run around the tree
Follow the leader run the churn into butter
               [D]Let's begin again begin the begin
       [F#]Let's begin again like Ma[A]rtin Luther Zen
The mythology begins the begin
       [F#]Answer me a question I can't itemize
       I can't think cle[A]arly look to me for reason
       It's not there I can't even r[E]hyme begin the begi[F#]n[F#7]
Example the finest example is you
               [F]Let's begin a[G]gain be[F]gin the b[G]egin
       [F]Let's begin [G]again[F] [G]
Begin The Begin (Another interpretation)
========================================
       -----------------------
       -----------------------
       0-2-4-------4-0--------    This is the part that begins the song and
       ------0-2-0------------    is used in most of it
       -----------------------
       -----------------------

And the rest of it follows this pattern
               Bi[F#]rdie in the hand, for the l[A]ights which demand
       The insug[E]ency which began and we m[F#]issed it
       The phil[D]anderers tied the murderer's shoes

Fall On Me
==========
Intro : a little ditty around a C chord
               [Dm]There's a problem [Am]feathers iron
       [Dm]Bargain buildings w[Am]eights and pulleys
       [Dm]Feathers hit the gro[Am]und before the [Dm]weight can leave the[Am] air
       [Dm]Buy the sk[G]y and [C]sell the [F]sky and [Dm]tell the sky and [G]tell the sky
Chorus :
       Don't f[C]al[Dm]l on [F]me[G]
(What is it up in the air for)
(It's gonna fall)
       [C]Fa[Dm]ll on[F] m[G]e
(If it's there for long) (It's gonna fall)
       C Dm   F G -------------> F

Fall on me
(It's over it's over me) (It's gonna fall)
There's the progress we have found
A way to talk around the problem
Building towered foresight isn't anything at all
       [Dm]Buy the sk[G]y and [C]sell the [F]sky and [Dm]bleed the sky and [G]tell the sky
Chorus
Bridge :
       [Am]Well I could [F]keep it above
       [Am]But then it [Em]wouldn't be sky an[Am]ymore
       So if I [F]send it to you, you've got to [Dm]promise to keep it[G] home
                       [Dm]Buy the [G]sky and [C]sell the [F]sky and [Dm]lift your [G]arms up [C]to the [F]sky
       And a[Dm]sk the sky and [G]ask the sky
Chorus to fade
Fall On Me
==========
                T[Dm]here's a problem f[Am]eathers iron
        B[Dm]argain buildings w[Am]eights and pullies
        F[Dm]eathers hit the gr[Am]ound before the we[Dm]ight can leave the a[Am]ir
        B[Dm]uy the sk[G]y and se[C]ll the s[Am]ky and te[Dm]ll the sky and te[G7]ll the sky
(A) ---0-2- C chord
Don't Fall On Me
        (It's ov[F]er It's ov[G]er m[F]e ..[Fmaj7]...   )
There's the progress we have found
A way to talk around the problem
Building towered foresight isn't anything at all
Buy the sky and sell the sky and bleed the sky and tell the sky
                W[Am]ell I could k[F]eep it above
        B[Am]ut then it wou[G]ldn't be sky anymore[Am]
        So if I s[F]end it to you you've got to pro[Dm]mise to keep it h[G]ome
                B[Dm]uy the s[G]ky and s[C]ell the s[Am]ky and l[Dm]ift your ar[G]ms up t[C]o the s[Am]ky
        And a[Dm]sk the sky and a[G]sk the sky

I Believe
=========
{On this song, you can simulate that little guitar melody by starting
off with a plain jane E-chord, then playing an Esus4, and then stretch
your pinky down to the 4th fret of the D string to make that F# note.}
                When I[E] was young and full of grace
              and s[E]pirited a rattlesnake
        When I[E] was young and fever fell
        My sp[E]irit I will not tell
        You're on y[A]our honor not to te[F#m]ll
                I bel[E]ieve in coyotes and time as an abstract
        Expl[E]ain the change the difference bet[A]ween
        What you want and w[F#m]hat you need there's the k[B]ey
        Your adventure f[G#m]or today what do you do
        Betw[A]een the hours of the da[B]y
                 [E]   [Esus4]       [E]   [B]       [E]   [Esus4]      [E]    [B]  [E]       [Esus4]            [B]                 [F#m]     
        I ---  I --------        I ----      believe      my shirt is wearing thin

        And change is what I[A] believe in
When I was young and give and take
And foolish said my fool awake
When I was young and fever fell
My spirit I will not tell
You're on your honor on your honor
Trust in your calling make sure your calling's true
Think of others the others think of you
Silly rule golden words make practice practice makes perfect
Perfect is a fault and fault lines change
I believe my humor's wearing thin
And change is what I believe in
I believe my shirt is wearing thin
And change is what I believe in
When I was young and full of grace
And spirit hid a rattlesnake
When I was young and fever fell
My spirit I will not tell
You're on your honor not to tell
        I[B] believe in example
        I[G#m] believe my throat hurts
        Exa[A]mple is the checker to the k[B]ey
I believe my humor's wearing thin
And I believe the holds are slipping
I believe my shirt is wearing thin
And change is what I believe in

Swan swan hummingbird
Hurrah we are all free now
What noisy cats are we
Girl and dog he bore his cross
A long low time ago people talk to me
Johnny Reb what's the price of pans
Forty a piece or three for one dollar
Hey captain don't you want to buy
Some bone chains and toothpicks
Night weaves her hair chains
Years you wouldn't bring back sing
Wooden beams and dove tails sweep
I struck that picture ninety times
I walked that path a hundred ninety
Long low time ago people talk to me
A pistol hot cup of rhyme
The whiskey is water the water is wine
Marching feet Johnny Reb what's the price of heroes
Six and one half dozen the other
Tell that to the captain's mother
Hey captain don't you want to buy
Some bone chains and toothpicks
Night weaves her hair chains
Swan swan hummingbird
Hurrah we are all free now
What noisy cats are we
Long low time ago people talk to me
A pistol hot cup of rhyme
The whiskey is water the water is wine
