Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics
Major upgrade!! After one year development the new version of Chordie is now online! Please give feedback.

Waiting for the Rapture  Oasis

Title: Waiting For The Rapture
Artist: Oasis
Album: Dig Out Your Soul
Notes: I based this tab on the alternate recording released on the bonus disc to Dig Out
Soul. It?s a much more acoustic style song. This tab can still be applied to the song
the regular release, as it?s just ?open neck? translations of the power chords used in
album version.
Tempo: The tempo of this version is best described as a ticking clock. With the first
of the chord being played in a down-stroke (representing the tic) and the second part of
chord being played in an up-stroke (representing the tock). This style of play creates
very syncopated sound and feeling.
Hope this version proves better than the previous submissions

[Am]I still don't know what I was [Dsus2]waiting for

[Fmaj7]She put an apple in my e[Am]ye
I said I'm [C]tired________[Am]__
Come [Fmaj7]get me off the merry-go-ro[Am]und
I'm [C]wired_______________[Am]___
Come [Fmaj7]feed me and then bring me [Am]down
Verse 2:
[Am]She come up to me, [Dsus2]I can't remember what she said
[Fmaj7]Cause I was in a trance and I forgot it a[Am]ll
[Am]I bet you don't know about all that, [Dsus2]Revolution in her head
[Fjam7]She make a lover seem so magi[Am]cal
She said I'm [C]tired_______[Am]__
Come [Fmaj7]get me off the merry-go-ro[Am]und

Well [Fmaj7]heaven must of sent you
To [E]save me from the rapture... yeah, yeah, yeaaaaheeyy
