Telling Stories Chords

   
Telling Stories by Tracy Chapman
(I may not have the lyrics right in places. Enjoy!)
Intro: Em Chord (6th and 4th strings)

Em       G                      C     G                  D
There is fiction in the space between lines on a page, a memory
         G                    C           G                D      (Em C G D
Write it down, but it doesn't mean you're not just telling stories      twice)
         G                      C     G         D
There is fiction in the space between you and reality
          G             C                  G                  D
You would do and say anything to make your everyday life seem less
mundane
         G                      C     G       D      ( Em C G D twice )
There is fiction in the space between you and me.
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/t/tracy_chapman/telling_stories_crd.html ]
                  G                      C     G       D
There's a science fiction in the space between you and me
       G             C       G              D
A fabrication, grand scheme. I am the scary monster
        G                     C           G              D
Need to say it as I leave the scene in my spaceship I am laughing
       G                  C             G              D
Your remembrance of a bad dream there's no one but you standing.
( repeat Em C G D twice )

Bridge:
D                          C                G
Feel the pity and the pain for the ones who do not speak
D                                             C       G
Back the words you get respect and compassion and for posterity
C                    G                     Em
Spread the words and make believe there is truth in the space between.
(Em 4 bars)

         G                      C     G       D
There is fiction in the space between you and everybody
G                   C             G             D
Give us all what we need. Give us one more sad, sordid story.
       G                      C     G              D
In the fiction of the space between sometimes a lie is the best thing
       G       C       G             D    (repeat G C G D)
                       sometimes a lie is the best thing
                                       is the best thing  (repeat)
(finish with Em)
