[C]Did you never [Em]call?[Gm] I waited [F]for your call
These r[C]ivers of sug[Cm]gestion [Bb] are [C]driving me away

chorus} C Dm x4
I'm sorry
Eastern to Mountain, third party call, the lines are down
The wise man wrote his words upon the rocks
But I'm not bound to follow suit
The trees will bend, the conversation's dimmed
Go build yourself another home, this choice isn't mine
chorus} C Dm x2
I'm sorry

Did you never call? I waited for your call
These rivers of suggestion are driving me away
The ocean sang, the cities wash away
Go build yourself another dream, this choice isn't mine
Am riff x4

SO. CENTRAL RAIN ("In The Attic" Version)
Well, I've bought the "new" (actually, it's a EMI compilation)
R.E.M. album, and I heard that "Time After Time/Red Rain/So. Central Rain"
live medley that contains a really nice version of "So. Central Rain".
It's just Michael singing and Peter playing.
To play this version, just replace the C on the bass solo:
 
 e --0---------------
 B ----1-----1-------
 G ------------(0)---
 D ------0h2---------
 A -3--------------3-

and the G on the other bass solo:
 
 e ---3---------
 B -----3-------
 G -----------0-
 D -------------
 A -------0h2---
 E -3-----------

(actually, Peter doesn't play this way, but I think
this way is OK, too!)
Play the other chords in harmonics.
