Chords
Transpose
An REM cover off GBS's 1997 album, "Play". None of the chords on here sound correct to 
me. So, I decided to finally figure out the chords myself. Very easy, only 3 chords. Not 
nearly as easy to sing, however!

-Standard Tuning-

-Capo on the 2nd fret-

-The chords are played as follows:-
*All chords relative to the capo*
D: xx0232
A: x02220

(Ring) = Let the chord ring

[Intro]
D (PM) A (PM) G (Ring) GIt's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine
[Verse 1]
D GThat's great, it starts with an earthquake, birds,
D Gsnakes, an aeroplanes, Lenny Bruce is not afraid.
D GEye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn - world
Dserves its own needs, dummy serve your own needs. Feed
Git off an aux speak, grunt, no, strength, Ladder
Dstart to clatter with fear fight down height. Wire
Gin a fire, representing seven games, a government
Dfor hire and a combat site. Left of west and coming in
G Da hurry with the furies breathing down your neck. Team
by team reporters baffled, trumped, tethered cropped.
G DLook at that low playing! Fine, then. Uh oh,
Goverflow, population, common food, but it'll do. Save
Dyourself, serve yourself. World serves its own needs,
Glisten to your heart bleed dummy with the rapture and
Dthe revered and the right, right. You vitriolic,
Gpatriotic, slam, fight, bright light, feeling pretty
G (PM)psyched.
[Chorus]
D A GIt's the end of the world as we know it
D A GIt's the end of the world as we know it
D A GIt's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine
[Verse 2] Six o'clock - TV hour. Don't get caught in foreign towers. Slash and burn, return, listen to yourself churn. Locking in, uniforming, book burning, blood letting. Every motive escalate. Automotive incinerate. Light a votive, light a candle. Step down, step down. Watch your heel crush, crushed, uh-oh, this means no fear cavalier. Renegade steer clear! A tournament, tournament, a tournament of lies. Offer me solutions, offer me alternatives and I decline. [Chorus] (x2) *Palm mute on the 2nd chorus* It's the end of the world as we know it It's the end of the world as we know it It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine [Verse 3] The other night I dreamt of knives, continental drift divide. Mountains sit in a line, Leonard Bernstein. Leonid Brezhnev, Lenny Bruce and Lester Bangs. Birthday party, cheesecake, jelly bean, boom! You symbiotic, patriotic, slam book neck, right? Right. [Chorus] (x2) It's the end of the world as we know it It's the end of the world as we know it It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine [End on D]
