I Took Your Name  R.E.M.

This is transcribed as I hear it from the live version. Part of it is
questionable, but it sounds okay in my head.
[E] [A5] [C] [A]  
 
 e:---0-----x-----0-----0-----------|
 B:---0-----x-----1-----2-----------|
 G:---1-----x-----0-----2-----------|
 D:---2-----x-----2-----2-----------|
 A:---2-----0-----3-----0-----------|
 E:---0-----0-----0-----0-----------|

Intro: E | A5 | E
The A5 should be played only three times before reverting to E.
1ST VERSE
[E]I wore the clothes you wanted[A5]
[E]I took your name[A5]
[E]If there is some confusio[A5]n, [E]who's to blame?
[E]I signed your living will[A5]
[E]I smiled your face[A5]
[E]I'm ready to close the bo[A5]ok on[E] NASA in outer space[A5]
CHORUS
[C]If there is [A]some confusion[A5]
[E]Who's to blame?[C] [A] [A5]
[E]Who's to blame?[A5]
2ND VERSE
I sequenced your arrival
I sealed your fate
I pushed the button and erased your master tape
I wrote the sales pitch
I threw the brake switch
I dragged your big ass daddy roth car out of that ditch
CHORUS
BRIDGE
A A5 E x2
C A A5 E x2
[A5] [E]  
3RD VERSE
I crossed your great divide
I stirred your ocean's tide
I called your bluff until I blew your circuits wide
I'll be your albatross
Your devil, dog, Jesus, God
I don't wanna be Iggy Pop but if that's what it takes, hey
ENDING CHORUS
[C]If there is [A]some confusion[C]
If there is [A]some confusion[C]
If there is [A]some confusion[A5] [E]
