What If We Give It Away?  R.E.M.

Chords by: Tony Bowden (
Corrections by:
[G]On the o[A]utside [G]underneath the [A]wall
All the money couldn't buy
You're mistaken no one's standing there
For the record no one tried
[Em]Oh... [A]I..... [Em]try to[A]
[G]What if we give it a[D]way...?
Overlooking with a hollow eye
What's pretending is it right
Eye for order a hand for what's in line
Couldn't follow couldn't write
[Em]Oh... [A]I..... [Em]try to[A]
[G]What if we give it a[D]way...?
[A]And our l[D]ife is [C]fine [G]here
[A]Stitch it [D]on your [C]tie [Em]here
Here's the trailer Tom
A year has come and gone
We're not moving was it right
Take the order sew it on your tie
We couldn't follow couldn't try
