Radio Free Europe

               [A]Decide yourself if radio's gon[D]na s[E]tay

Calling out in the transit calling out in the transit
Radio Free Europe

Keep me out of country in the word
Disappointment into us absured
Straight up above where to go

Pilgrimage
==========
       (D) ---3-------------------
       (A) -----3------3----------
       (E) --------3-------------- .... repeat then go on to verses...

Take a turn take a turn
Take off marching take off marching
       (G)  -------0---------0------------------
       (D)  ----3---------3----------0-------0--
       (A)  --1--------1-----------3-------3----
       (E)  ---------------------1-------1------   ... repeat several times

They called the club a two-headed cow
Your hate clipped and distant your luck with pilgrimage
Rest assured this will not last take a turn for the worst
Your hate clipped and distant your luck a two-headed cow
               [CCC]       [F]Pilgrimage[G] has gained momentum
       [F]Take a [G]turn take a turn
       [F]Take off [G]marching [F]take off [G]marching
Pilgrimage
Speaking in tongues it's with a broken lip
Your hate clipped and distant your luck with pilgrimage
Rest assured this will not last take a turn for the worst
Your hate clipped and distant your luck a two-headed cow
Your hate clipped and distant your luck
Rest assured this will not last take a turn for the worst
Your hate clipped and distant your luck two-headed
Talk About The Passion
======================
       Riff :    B(2)  -3-3-------3-3--------
                 G(3)  -2-2-------2-2---------   C   Asus4
                 D(4): -0-0-0-2-4-0-0-0-2-4-0---    

Empty bread empty mouths combien reaction
Empty bread empty mouths talk about the passion
Not everyone can carry the weight of the world
                           / [3]/ /    /    /   | / [3]/ /   /     /
A G A | A G A
               [G]Talk about [D]the [Bm]pass[A]ion[A] [Asus2] [A] [Asus2]
Empty bread empty mouths combien reaction
Empty bread empty mouths talk about the passion
       [F]   [Em]Combie[F]n [Em]combien [F]   [Em]combien de temps?
Also, someone asked about the intro tab for Talk About The Passion :
(D)************************* (Cmaj7)**** (A)**********
       E-------------- ! ----------------! ---------! ------------------!
       B---------------! ----------------! ---3-----! ----232-----------!
       G--2--2--2-2--2-! -2--2--2-2-2-2--! --0-0----! ---2---2----------!
       D--0--0--0-2--4-! -0--0--0-2-4-0--! -2---2---! --2-----2---------!
       A---------------! ----------------! 3-----3--! -0-------0--------!
       E---------------! ----------------! ---------! ------------------!

I also play this song by making a D without any finger on the high
E string. Here's how it begins :
       -----------------------------------------------------------------
       ------------------------3---------------0------------------------
       --------------------------2---------2-----2---------2------------
       0-0-0-2-4--0-0-0-2-4-0------0-----0---------2-----2--------------
       2-2-2------2-2-2--------------3-1-------------3-2----------------
       -----------------------------------------------------------------

Then this is repeated for the chorus
       --------------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3------------------------------
       0-0-0-0---0-0-0-0------------------------------------------------
       2-2-2-2---2-2-2-2------------------------------------------------
       2-2-2-2---2-2-2-2------------------------------------------------
       2-2-0-2---2-2-0-2---3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3------------------------------
       --------------------3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2------------------------------

and this part comes after the chorus
       -----------------------------------------------------------------
       -------------------------0-0-0-0-0-------------------------------
       -------------------------2-2-2-2-2-------------------------------
       2-2-2-2--2-2-2-2--2-2-2--2-2-2-2-2-------------------------------
       3-3-3-3--3-3-3-3--3-3-3--2-2-2-0-2-------------------------------
       2-2-3-5--2-2-3-5--3-3-2------------------------------------------

The only thing that I have figured out is the intro/verse section to
"Talk About the Passion". For what it's worth, here it is :
1:
2: 1 0 1 0
3: 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 0 0 0 0
4: 0 0 0 2 4 0 0 0 2 4 0 2 0 0 0
5: 3 2
6:
Make sure you try this, because I have a hard time remembering what I
play without a guitar in my hands. The second part (after the double
notes) may be off a little bit. They are based on the C and G
chords, though.
Perfect Circle
==============
               [F]   [F/G]Put your ha[D]ir back y[F]ou g[F/G]et to l[G]eave
       [F]   [F/G]Eleven gall[D]ows on your sl[G]eeve
       [F]   S[F/G]hallow fig[D]ure w[F]in[F/G]ner's pa[G]in
       [F]   E[F/G]leven sh[D]adows w[F]ay out of p[G]lace[F] [Dm7]
       S[C]tanding two s[F]ure shoulders h[C]igh in the r[Dm]oom
The last time through this part is :
               [C]Standing two [F]sure shoulders [C]high in the [F]room
Pull your dress on and stay real close
Who might leave you where I left off
A perfect circle of acquaintances and friends
Drink another coin a phrase
Heaven assure shoulders high in the room
Try to win and suit your needs
Speak out sometimes and try to win
Standing two ___ shoulders high in the room
Sitting Still
=============
Note : In this song and many other REM songs, there is an A9 chord.
This chord can be interchanged with Asus2. Here is my favorite A9
position :
(E) -0- Its just like playing an A chord using a 5th fret
(B) -0- barre E chord. If you move it to the seventh fret,
(G) -6- it becomes a B11. On the 8th fret, its a Cmaj7. On
(D) -7- the 10th, its a D9add6. On the 3rd fret, its a very
(A) -7- pretty G6 chord. On the second, its a neat sounding F#
(E) -5- sort-of chord. On the first fret, Its a Mexican sounding
F chord.
A BaddE/F# is an easy chord. Don't play the A-string.
Obviously, you pick this chord - don't strum, It'll sound shitty.
BaddE/F# BaddE (normal)
(E) -0- -0-
(B) -0- -0- To switch between these chords, move
(G) -2- -2- only ONE finger.
       [D](A) [-4-]-x-             [-4-]-2-
(E) -2- -x-
                I[E]t's name a god we all ag[BaddE/F#]ree[BaddE]
        S[E]ecret stop stop it well-[BaddE/F#]read[BaddE]
        W[E]e could find it in the s[BaddE/F#]ieve[BaddE]
        W[E]e could gather throw a f[BaddE/F#]it[BaddE]
                U[B]p to par and Katie-bar the ki[A]tchen door but not me in
        S[B]ee them try for the big kill [A]wasting time sitting still
I'm the sun and you can read
I'm the sun and you're not dead
We could find it in the sieve
We could gather throw a fit
I can hear you
You can gather when I talk talk until we're blue
You could get away from me get away from me
I can hear you
Can you hear me?
Shaking Through
===============
       (E) ---5---3---2---0---
       (B) ---7---5---3---2---
       (G) ---7---5---2---0---

(D) --steady 1/8 notes all the way
{once again, there's a melody line played on the E string with
the chords, it just alternates between D Dsus2 and Dsus4;
with the Bm chord, its easier to play a "cheater" chord (no barre)
then pick out the notes. Or I guess you could play straight chords if
you're a weenie}
               [D]Could it be that [Bm]one small voice d[D]oesn't count in the [Bm]world
       [Em]Yellow like a geisha [A]dawn [Em]deny it all the [A]way
Could this be three beaten
Autumn marches on
Yellow like a geisha dawn deny it all the way
               [D]Sh[A]aking [G]thro[A]ugh a[D]ll t[A]he [G]day
Or have we gone way too far
Taking after rain
Yellow like a geisha dawn deny it all the way
Shaking through all the day
Shaking through opportune
       [Em]In my l[A]ife[Em] [A]
Is that a steal
Children of today on parade
Yellow like a geisha dawn deny it all the way
Shaking through all the day
{At the end, the chorus gets played a key up for a while, so it's
E B A .... then end on a big 'ol B}
We Walk
=======
{On the C to Am stuff, It sounds good to walk the bass note of the C
chord down to a B before playing Am - just like Mikey Mills}
U[C]p the stairs t[Am]o the landing u[C]p the stairs into[Am] the hall[C] [Am] [C] [Am]
T[C]ake oa[Am]sis mo[C]re odd sp[Am]aces[C] [Am] [Em]
W[F]e w[Fmaj7]alk th[Dm]rough the wood w[F]e w[G]alk
U[C]p the stairs t[Am]o the landing u[C]p the stairs int[Am]o the hall[C] [Am] [C] [Am]
T[C]ake oa[Am]sis mo[C]re odd sp[Am]aces[C] [Am] [Em]
W[F]e w[Fmaj7]alk th[Dm]rough the woods w[F]e wa[G]lk
Take oasis take oasis take oasis take oasis
[Bb-B-C]    Up the stairs t[Am]o the landing u[C]p the stairs int[Am]o the hall[C] [Am] [C] [Am]
C Am C Am ......
Take oasis more odd spaces
We walk through the world we walk
Up the stairs to the landing up the stairs into the hall
Take oasis more odd spaces
Up the stairs to the landing up the stairs into the hall
Take oasis more odd spaces
Up the stairs to the landing up the stairs into the hall
Into the hall
