R.E.M.

R.E.M. was an American rock band from Athens, Georgia, formed in 1980 by singer Michael Stipe, guitarist Peter Buck, bassist Mike Mills and drummer Bill Berry. One of the first popular alternative rock bands, R.E.M. gained early attention due to Buck's ringing, arpeggiated guitar style and Stipe's unclear vocals. R.E.M. released its first single, "Radio Free Europe", in 1981 on the independent record label Hib-Tone. The single was followed by the Chronic Town EP in 1982, the band's first release on I.R.S.

Swan, swan, hummingbird 
Hurrah  we are all free now 
What noisy cats are we 
Girl and dog he bore his cross 
A long  low time ago  people talk to me 

Johnny Reb what's the price of fans 
Forty a piece or three for one dollar? 
Hey captain don't you want to buy 
Some bone chains and toothpicks? 

Night wings  her hair chains  
Here's your wooden greenback  sing 
Wooden beams and dovetail sweep 
I struck that picture ninety times, 
I walked that path a hundred ninety, 
Long, low time ago, people talk to me 

A pistol hot cup of rhyme 
The whiskey is water, the water is wine 
Marching feet, Johnny Reb, what's the price of heroes? 

Six in one, half dozen the other, 
Tell that to the captain's mother, 
Hey captain don't you want to buy, 
Some bone chains and toothpicks? 

Night wings, her hair chains 
Swan, swan, hummingbird 
Hurrah, we are all free now 
What noisy cats are we 
Long, low time ago, people talk to me 
A pistol hot cup of rhyme, 
The whiskey is water, the water is wine
