Stand - R.E.M - Ukulele Chords

Another easy one which just follows a repeating pattern of three chords. Stand, by R.E.M, from the album Green.


The key change at the end can be a bit tricky, but suppose that could be optional.


As usual, video at the end to play along to.

[E] Think about di [A] rection wonder [B] why you haven't before
[E] Stand in the [A] place where you [B] work (now face west)
[E] Think about the [A] place where you live [B] wonder why you haven't before

[E] If you are con [A] fused, [E] check with the [B] sun
[E] Carry a [D] compass to [G] help you a [B] long
