Harborcoat  R.E.M.

HARBORCOAT (Version 1)
{This song is actually played in Eb on the record. This transcription in
E won't go along much with the album unless you tune down.}
T[C#m]hey crowded up to Leni[E]n with their noses worn off[A] [B]
A[C#m] handshake is worthy i[E]f it's all that you've got[A] [B]
M[C#m]etal shoes on wood pus[E]h through our back[A] [B]
There's a sp[C#m]linter in your eye [E]and it reads "REACT"[A] [B]
/F#m G#m/ x 3 F#m7
They shifted the statues for harboring ghosts
Reddened their necks, collared their clothes
Then we danced the dance till the menace got out
She gathered the corners and called it her gown
P[E]lease [G#m]find my harb[A/Asus2]orcoat, [E]can't[G#m] go outside[A/Asus2] without it
[E] [G#m]Find my harb[A/Asus2]orcoat, [E]can't[G#m] go outside[A/Asus2] without it
They crowded up to Lenin with their noses worn off
A handshake is worthy if it's all that you've got
Metal shoes on wood push through our back
There's a splinter in your eye and it reads "REACT", R-E-A-C-T
They shifted the statues for harboring ghosts
Reddened their necks, collared their clothes
Then we danced the dance till the menace got out
She gathered the corners and called it her gown
She said...

They crowded up to Lenin with their noses worn off
A handshake is worthy if it's all that you've got
Metal shoes on wood push through our back
There's a splinter in your eye and it reads "REACT"
They shifted the statues for harboring ghosts
Reddened their necks, collared their clothes
Then we danced the dance till the menace got out
She gathered the corners and called it her gown
Please find my harborcoat, can't go outside without it
Find my harborcoat, can't go outside without it
They crowded up to Lenin with their noses worn off
A handshake is worthy if it's all that you've got
Metal shoes on wood push through our back
There's a splinter in your eye and it reads "REACT", R-E-A-C-T
They shifted the statues for harboring ghosts
Reddened their necks, collared their clothes
Then we danced the dance till the menace got out
She gathered the corners and called it her gown
