C             Em   Gm         F
Did you never call?  I waited for your call
       C           Cm      Bb    C
These rivers of suggestion   are driving me away
C              Em   Gm          F
The trees will bend, the cities wash away
     C          Cm    Bb      C
The city on the river has a girl without a dream

              I'm sorry       


{bass solo}   C  x4

{chords same as first verse}
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

 {bass solo} G x4     C x4

{same  chords as other verses}
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
{end very intensely on Am}

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.
