R.E.M Document Ukulele Chords



Now the challenge in this one is not the playing. The chords couldn't be much easier. The trick is getting all the words out when you sing it! Go on, challenge yourself! As usual, video at the end to play along to


[G] That's great it starts with an [C] earthquake
Birds and snakes and [G] Aeroplanes, Lenny Bruce is [C] not afraid
[G] Eye of a hurricane listen to yourself churn
[C] World serves its own needs don't misserve your own needs
[G] Feed It up a knock, speed grunt no, strength no
[C] ladder structure clatter with fear of height down height
[Bb] Wire in a fire represent the seven games
In a [A] government for hire and a combat site

[G] Left her wasnt coming in a hurry with the furies
breathing [C] down your neck
[G] Team by team reporters baffled, trump tethered crop
Look at [C] that low plane, fine then.
[G] Uh oh, overflow, population common group, but [C] it'll do
Save yourself, serve yourself
World serves its [G] own needs listen to your heart bleed
Tell me with the [C] rapture and reverent in the right... right
You [Bb] vitriolic patriotic slam, fight, bright light
[A] feeling pretty psyched.

It's the [G] end of the [D] world as we [Am] know it
It's the [G] end of the [D] world as we [Am] know it
It's the [G] end of the [D] world as we [Am] know it and I feel [C] fine

[G] six o clock, TV hour, Don't get caught in foreign tower
[C] Slash and  burn, return, listen to yourself churn
[G] Lock him in uniform and book burning blood letting
[C] Every  motive escalate, Automotive incinerate
[G] Light a candle light a motive, step down, step down
[C] Watch a  heel crush, crush
Uh oh, this means [G] no fear, cavalier, Renegade and steer clear
[C] A tournament a tournament a tournament of lies
[Bb]Offer me solutions offer me alternatives and [A] I decline


It's the [G] end of the [D] world as we [Am] know it
It's the [G] end of the [D] world as we [Am] know it

It's the [G] end of the [D] world as we [Am] know it and I feel [C] fine

[G] The other night I tripped a nice continental drift divide
[C] Mount St  Edelite, Leonard Bernstein
[G] Leonid Breshnev, Lenny Bruce and Lester Bangs
[C] Birthday party, cheesecake, jelly bean, boom
You [Bb] symbiotic patriotic, slam, but neck, [A] right? Right


It's the [G] end of the [D] world as we [Am] know it
It's the [G] end of the [D] world as we [Am] know it
It's the [G] end of the [D] world as we [Am] know it and I feel [C] fine


It's the [G] end of the [D] world as we [Am] know it
It's the [G] end of the [D] world as we [Am] know it
It's the [G] end of the [D] world as we [Am] know it and I feel [C] fine

Repeat to end, with backing vocal of 'Time I had some time alone'
