The World I Know Tab

   
World I know-
by Collective Soul
off the self-titled album


tabbed by:
	Scott, the guitar freak   (scottf@scs.unr.edu)
 -and-	Chad Hanley		  (chanle51@maine.main.edu)**NOTE: in the verses, use barre chords.. in the chorus, use the open 
fingerings... that's how it sounded when i heard it.. i'll also give you 
a more powerful-sounding chorus...

***NOTE: if no symphony is available for your rendition, keyboards work 
nicely... :)


VERSE I

D	A	G       	 A
	Has our conscience shown?
	Has the sweet breeze blown?
	Has all the kindness gone?
	Hope still lingers on.
	I drink myself of newfound pity
	Sitting alone in New York City.
	And I don't know why.

Verse II

D	A	G  	  A
	Are we listening?
	Hymns of offering
	Have we eyes to see
	That love is gathering?
	
	A
	All the words that I've been reading
	Have now started the act of bleeding
	
	G
	Into one....Into one.

CHORUS

D		       A
	So I walk upon high
			  G
	And I step to the edge
			D
	To see my world below.
		         A	
	And I laugh at myself
			     C
	While the tears roll down.
				G
	'Cause it's the world I know.
			 D
	It's the world I know.

VERSE III (look at end of Verse I)

I drink myself of newfound pity
Sittin alone in New York City.
And I don't know why.
Don't know why.

CHORUS (check out the first chorus)
So I walk upon high
And I step to the edge
to see my world below.
And I laugh at myself
While the tears roll down.
'Cause it's the world I know.
It's the world I know.
Yeah, I walk upon high
And I step to the edge
To see my world below
And I laugh at myself
While the tears roll down.
'Cause it's the world I know.
It's the world I know.

at the end when the symphony kicks in, Childress (i think) is 
arpeggiating a D, and throwing in the 4th sometimes (Dsus4)

and the song ends on a Dsus4...

(i've only heard the song twice on MTV, and at the time i didn't have my 
guitar.. i had to get home and play from memory... )

The World I Know
by Collective Soul
Taken from the album Collective Soul
tabbed by Justin Kunz

Probably written by Ed Roland (sweet beard!)

Well I definitely think this song is overplayed, but I have found a new 
respect for Collective Soul after I figured out the opening riff to this 
song. I think it is a great progression. I borrowed the lyrics from World 
I Know tablulation by Scott the guitar freak and Chad Hanley. I don't 
think their opening is accurate, it actually starts with a Bm progression 
like this...

s- slide

FIG 1
e ----------------------------------------------------------------
B ----------------------------------------------------------------
G -2ss7777777--22222-244--444-666---------------------------------
D -0ss0000000--00000-000--000-000---------------------------------
A -xssxxxxxxx--xxxxx-xxx--xxx-xxx---------------------------------
E -2ss7777777--22222-233--333-555---------------------------------
                     ***

***-play that part as if you were counting '1,2,3' quickly, where the 
2x02 formation gets the 1 count and the 2 and 3 count goes to 3x04.

(you can figure out the real timing by listening to the song)

FIG 1
Has our conscience show?
Has the sweet breeze blown?
Has all the kindness gone?
Hope still lingers on.

D              A
So I walk upon high
                   G
And I step to the edge
                    D
To see my world below
                  A
And I laugh at myself
                      C
While the tears roll down
                     G
Cos it's the world I know
                 D
It's the world I know


That's how it goes, just apply the same formations to the rest of the song

This is a slightly different version than the others I have seen posted - 
it is in a different key, but capo should take care of that.   It sounds 
better than plain chords.

Intro -

E-|--0----0---0---0--
B-|--8----3---5---7--
G-|--0----0---0---0--
D-|--9----4---5---7--
A-|--7----2---3---5--
E-|--0---------------

Play the above with "Has our consience shown...Has the sweet breeze blown..."
When you reach "I drink myself of newfound pity..." change to a D - C 
progression, then jump back into the  above pattern for the second verse.

Chorus -

	G - D - C - G   "So I walk up on high..."

	G - D - F - C - G   "And I laugh at myself...as the tears roll down.."

The ending is G - D - C - D, but is instrumental so it needs more than 
just chords...


And that is it!  The only tricky thing is getting the strumming right and 
adding as many notes to synthesize a string quartet as possible.  For the 
tabbed struming above, it is easiest just to use the same finger 
positions, and slide down and up the frets.

World I know------
Collective Soul

This is a real pretty tune I figured out sitting on the john and playing 
my guitar during one those really good bowel movements.

8<------------cut-here---------------------8<----------------------
Okay this is the definite riff that makes this tune so beautiful. 
I know you guys don't want to hear the transcriber speak so Ill cut
it short.  I dont see the way I play it posted, so heres what I have:

           Bm             D/F#      G     
e|-----x-x-x-x-x---x-x----x-x---x-x-x-x-x-x-x----x-x---|
b|-----0-0-0-0-0---0-0----0-0---0-0-0-0-0-0-0----0-0---| ..and repeat 
g|----/7-7-7-7-7---7-7----2-2---2-2/4-4-4-4-4----4-4---|  til' chorus.
d|-----0-0-0-0-0---0-0----0-0---0-0-0-0-0-0-0----0-0---|
a|-----x-x-x-x-x---x-x----x-x---x-x-x-x-x-x-x----x-x---|
E|----/7-7-7-7-7---7-7----2-2---2-2/3-3-3-3-3----3-3---|

Cool.  Now Download "world_i_know.crd" and you'll be set for chorus and
so on.

Peace.  Im out.    ****Transcribed by Kuentin Lietel*****
