Pop Song 89  R.E.M.

{ The opening lick is straight off an A blues scale. I don't have my
guitar here to transcribe it. It doesn't sound good by itself anyway.
Whistling is a great substitue when you have to play alone. Ha! Ha!
no not the skin flute!}
> [A]Hello I s[D]aw you I [A]know you I k[D]new you
> I t[A]hink I can r[D]emember your n[A]ame...n[D]ame
[A] [D] [A] [D]  
> [A]Hello I'm s[D]orry I l[A]ost my[D]self
> I t[A]hink I th[D]ought you were s[A]omeone el[D]se
> [E]Should we [G]talk about the we[D]ather? [BaddE]
> [E]Should we [G]talk about the go[D]vernment?[B]
{break: B / / / B / / / E / / / E7 / / /
the melody[B] o[/]n [/]th[/]e [B]br[/]ea[/]k [/]is[E]n'[/]t [/]to[/]o [D/Dsus4]hard to pick out. The notes
are real close to the chords - often in them. I think its weird
that Pete didn't play them on the acoustic version.}
> Hello my friend are you visible today?
> And no one ever knew that it could be so strange...strange
> Hello I'm sorry I lost myself
> I think I thought you were someone else
