Rem - Find The River chords

 R.E.M. - FIND THE RIVER
 Tuning: Drop D 

   I noticed that other chord sets for this song, while correct,
sound rather boring to me.  Tuning to Drop D allows you to 
play the bass line along with the chords for a sound much more 
like the record.

D               Dm/F            Dsus2/E              G
Hey now little speedy head, the read on the speedmeter says
     D             Dm/F        A7sus4
you have to go the task in the city.
      D                 Dm/F         Dsus2/E             G
Where people drown and people serve, Don't be shy, your just deserve
   D          Dm/F          A7sus4
is only just light years to go.

G                        A          D                Em
Me, my thoughts are flower strewn, ocean storm, bayberry moon.
G                  A           D
I have got to leave to find my way
G                     A               D              Em
Watch the road and memorize this life that pass before my eyes,
G              A          D
  nothing is going my way


   D - Dm/F - Dsus2/E - G
   D - Dm/F - A7sus4


   D               Dm/F              Dsus2/E             G
The ocean is the rivers goal, a need to leave the water knows.
      D                Dm/F           A7sus4
We're closer now than light years to go.

G               A              D             Em
I have got to find the river, bergamot and vetiver
G                A                D
 Run through my head and fall away.
G                    A             D              Em
Leave the road and memorize this life that pass before my eyes,
G              A         D
  nothing is going my way.


 *REPEAT INTRO RIFF*


        D               Dm/F              Dsus2/E          G
There's no one left to take the lead, but I tell you and you can see
          D             Dm/F        A7sus4
We're closer now and light years to go.
 D               Dm/F                 Dsus2/E        G
Pick up here and chase the ride.  The river empties to the tide;
D             Dm/F        A7sus4
Fall into the ocean.

    G              A              D               Em
The river to the ocean goes, a fortune for the undertow.
G                 A         D
  None of this is going my way.
G                  A               D              Em
There is nothing left to throw of ginger, lemon, indigo,
G             A                 D
  Coriander stem and rose of hay.
   G                    A                D              Em
Strength and courage overrides these privileged and weary eyes of
G            A           D
River poet search naivete.
G                   A                 D                Em
Pick up here and chase the ride, the river empties to the tide.
G                A              D
 All of this is coming your way.
