Find The River guitar chords

From: Sebastian Hagedorn 

here's a new song for the REM-archive.
I've taken the lyrics from this year's christmas package, i.e.
they're straight from the horse's mouth.


FIND THE RIVER (from the album "Automatic For The People")

INTRO:

(E) ------2-------2
(B) ----3-3-----3-3	play 2 times
(G) --2---2---0---0
(D) 0-----0-2-----2


D F Em G
D F A  /


Verse:

D               F
hey now little speedyhead
    Em               G
the read on the speedmeter says
    D             F            A
you have to go to task in the city
      D                F
where people drown and people serve
Em                 G
don't be shy your just deserve
   D          F             A
is only just light years to go


Chorus:

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

Note: Last chord of chorus is first chord of verse

D F Em G
D F A  /

Verse (as above):

the ocean is the rivers goal
a need to leave the water knows
we're closer now than light years to go.

Chorus (as above):

I have got to find the river
bergamot and vetiver
run through my head and fall away
leave the road and memorize
this life that pass before my eyes
nothing is going my way.

Repeat INTRO

Verse:

there's no one left to take the lead
but I tell you and you can see
we're closer now than light years to go.
pick up here and chase the ride
the river empties to the tide
fall into the ocean.

Chorus:

the river to the ocean goes
a fortune for the undertow
none of this is going my way.
there is nothing left to throw
of ginger, lemon, indigo,
coriander stem and rose of hay.
strength and courage overrides
the privileged and weary eyes
of river poet search naivete.
pick up here and chase the ride
the river empties to the tide
all of this is coming your way.

End on D
