Verse:

     E
Well do you don't you want me to make you

I'm coming down fast but don't let me break you
                                 G
Tell me tell me tell me come on tell me the answer
          A                                E
Well you may be a lover but you ain't no dancer.

    Helter skelter                        Yeah

So much for verses and choruses.  The rest are pretty much the same,
except that the rest of the verses hit the G chord a little sooner
(at the beginning of the third line of the verse).

Here's the guitar solo in the middle:

    E                          A                      E
-|----------------------7--7--15b(17)--15b(17)--b(17)15-------------
-|----------------------0--0----------------------------------------
-|----------------------9--9----------------------------------------
-|------------------------------------------------------------------
-|------------------------------------------------------------------
-|------------------------------------------------------------------
    'Cos here she comes
                                  A                                    E
-|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
-|--b(17)15b(17)15---------------13b(14)------------------b(17)15-----------
-|------------------b(14)12---------------b(14)12b(14)12-----------12-------
-|---------------------------14----------------------------------------14~--
-|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
-|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Later, there's a neat riff in one of the last verses.  I think it
comes right after "will you won't you want me to make you" or something
like that.  This is a cool riff with that looonnnng slide.

-|--12--15b(17)--b(17)15--12------12----------------------------------------
-|----------------------------15------15\10-----10b(12)--b(12)10--8---------
-|-------------------------------------------9-----------------------7--9---
-|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
-|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
-|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

As the song fades into the first ending, there are some nice bend releases,
while the lyrics repeat "coming down fast":

-|--b(17)15------------------------------------------------------------
-|-----------b(17)15---------------------------------------------------
-|--------------------b(16)14------------------------------------------
-|-----------------------------b(14)12---------------------------------
-|--------------------------------------b(14)12------------------------
-|---------------------------------------------------------------------

Later, there's a whole lot of Hendrix-like guitar noise.

"This is a song Charles Manson stole from the Beatles.
 We're stealing it back."

When you get to the bottom
You go back to the top of the slide
And you stop and you turn
And you go for a ride
Till you get to the bottom
Then you see me again

Do you, don't you want me to love you?
I'm coming down fast, but I'm miles above you
Tell me, tell me, tell me the answer
You may be a lover but you ain't no dancer

Helter skelter
Helter skelter
Helter skelter

Do you, don't you want me to make you?
Coming down fast I don't want me to break you
Tell me , tell me, tell me the answer
You may be a lover but you ain't no dancer

Helter skelter
Helter skelter
Helter skelter

When you get to the bottom
you go back to the top of the slide
Where you stop and you turn
And you go for a ride
Till you get to the bottom
And I see you again

Do you, don't you want me to love you ?
Coming down fast I'm right above you
Tell me , tell me, tell me the answer
You may be a lover but you ain't no dancer

Helter skelter
Helter skelter
Helter skelter

 "Van Diemen's Land"
  ----------------

        G   C              G   C  G
Hold me now, oh hold me now
          Em  C               D
Till this hour has gone around
        Bm                 Em  C
And I'm gone on the rising tide
       G   D             G    C G
For to face Van Diemen's land

It's a bitter pill I swallow here
To be rent from one so dear
We fought for justice and not for gain
But the magistrate sent me away
  
Now kings will rule and the poor will toil
And tear their hands as they tear the soil
But a day will come in the dawning age
When an honest man sees an honest wage
  
Hold me now, hold me now
Till this hour has gone around
And I'm gone on the rising tide
For to face Van Diemen's land
  
Still the gunman rules and widows pay
A scarlet coat now a black beret
They thought that blood and sacrifice
Could out of death bring forth a life

NOTE:  All chords are played in arpeggio (first from 
       low frequency to high frequency and then back).

 "Desire"
  ------

Intro and verses: Dsus2-A-E-Esus4-E (this is labeled [+])

        [+]             [+]
Yeah, lover I'm on the streets
                    [+]                         [+]
Gonna go where the bright lights and the big city meet
             Dsus2         A     [+]
With a red guitar, on fire, Desire

She's the candle burning in my room
I'm like the needle - needle and spoon
Over the counter with a shotgun
Pretty soon, everybody got one
And the fever when I'm beside her
Desire, desire

 Dsus2 A   Dsus2 E
(Burning, burning)

She's the dollars
She's my protection
She's a promise
In the year of election
Sister, I can't let you go
I'm like a preacher
Stealing hearts at a traveling show
For love or money, money, money
Desire

 "All Along The Watchtower"             [Bob Dylan]
  ------------------------

INTRO: C#m-B-A-B-C#m-B-A

  C#m          B        A           B C#m       B               A       B
"There must be some way out of here," said the joker to the thief,
  C#m          B        A B C#m       B        A       B
"There's too much confusion, I can't get no relief.
  C#m          B        A    B C#m       B        A       B
Businessmen they drink my wine, plowman dig my earth,
  C#m          B        A B C#m       B             A       B
None of them along the line know what any of it is worth."

"No need to get excited," the thief, he kindly spoke,
"There are many here among us who think that life is but a joke.
But you and I, we've been through that, and that is not our fate,
So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late."

All along the watchtower, princes kept the view
While all the women came and went, barefoot servants, too.

Outside in the distance a wildcat did growl,
Two riders were approaching, the wind began to howl.

"I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For"

        C
I have climbed the highest mountains
I have run through the fields

Only to be with you

Only to be with you

I have run, I have crawled
I have scaled these city walls

Only to be with you

Only to be with you

:/ But I still haven't found what I'm looking for /:


I have kissed honey lips
Felt the healing in her fingertips
It burned like fire this burning desire

I have spoke with the tongue of angels
I have held the hand of a devil
It was warm in the night, I was cold as a stone
:/ But I still haven't found what I'm looking for /:

I believe in the Kingdom Come
Then all the colours will bleed into one
But yes I'm still running.
You broke the bonds, you loosened the chains
You carried the cross
And my shame, and my shame
You know     I believed it
:/ But I still haven't found what I'm looking for /:

I need some freedom for my people

[Verse]
Em
In the shit house, a shotgun
Praying hands hold me down
Only the hunter was hunted
In this tin can town, tin can town
No stars in the black night
Looks like the sky fall down
No sun in the daylight
Looks like it's chained to the ground, chained to the ground.

[Chorus]

I scream at the sounds, it's coming
                      A(XII) Em
Crawls under the door

Hit where it hurts -- silver and gold
Silver and gold.

[Spoken]

"Yep. Silver and gold.
This song was written in a hotel room in New York City.
Right about the time a friend of ours, little Steven,
as pulling together a record of artists against Apartheid.
It's a song written about a man, in a shanty town outside of Johannesburg.
A man who's sick of looking down the barrel of White South Africa.
A man at the point where he is ready to take up arms against his oppressor.
A man who's lost faith in the peace makers of the West.
While they argue and while they fail to support a man like Bishop Tutu.
And his request for economic sanctions against South Africa.
Am I bugging you? I don't mean to bug ya'.
Okay Edge, play the blues."

 A                   D
One man come in the name of love,

One man come and go.
 A                   D
One come here to justify,

One man to overthrow,
 A                   D
In the name of love,
 G               Em
What more in the name of love.

One man crawled on a barbed wire fence,
One man he resist.
One man washed on an empty beach.
One man betrayed with a kiss.
In the name of love,
What more in the name of love.

Early morning, April 4.
A shot rings out in the Memphis sky.
Free at last, they took your life,
But they could not take your pride.
In the name of love,
What more in the name of love.

          C             F
It was a cold and wet December day
          C             F
When we touched down at JFK
   C             F
Snow was melting on the ground
   C         F                  C       F
On BLS I heard the sound (of an Angel)

  C             F
New York like a Christmas tree
          C                F            C       F
I said tonight this city belongs to me (Angel)

 F       G                      F
Soul love this love won't let me go
        G            C  F
So long...Angel of Harlem

Birdland on 53, the street sounds like a symphony
We got John Coltrane and a love supreme
Miles and she has to be an Angel

Lady Day got diamond eyes
She sees the truth behind the lies (Angel)

Soul love this love won't let me go
So long...Angel of Harlem

Bridge:
Am      G   F                  Am G             F
ooh ooh ooh ooh she sings with heart, heart and soul

Blue light on the avenue
God knows they got to you
An empty glass, the lady sings
Eyes swollen like a bee sting
Blinded you lost your way
On the side streets and the alleyways
Like a star exploding in the night
Filling up the city with broad daylight
An Angel in Devil's shoes
Salvation in the blues
You never looked like an Angel
So long...Angel of Harlem

Angel, Angel of Harlem (4 times and fade)

**********************************************************************

 "When Love Comes to Town"

    You actually don't play the chords that are in parenthesis, if you
do an acoustic version, play then all of them, but the actual guitar
part played by The Edge is what you see w/o parenthesis.

    The rhythm guitar part is just change between A and E: just hit each
chord once one after the other and let it ring until the next one like
that, if you listen closely to the tape you can hear it. All music stops
where I wrote "E(stop),"But The Edge has a delay going over his rhythm
part and you can hear it really clear at the stops.



Intro(Bono): guitar part just as in the first two lines of verse:

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Verse1(Bono):
(E)                              A E
I was a sailor, I was lost in sea
(E)                                           A E
I was under the waves, before loves resqued me
(E)                                   (A E)
I was a fighter I could turn on threat
    E(stop)
Now I stand accused of things I've said.

Chorus(B.B.):
(A)
Love comes to town,
                          A
I'm gonna jump that train
      E
When love comes to town,
                           A E  
I'm gonna catch that flame.

Maybe I was wrong to ever let you down,
        E(stop)
But I did what I did before love came to town.

This is the B.B.'s fill, do it twice:
(* means bend it up 1/4 of a step)

--------------------E
---5*--5*----3-3----B
------------------4-G
--------------------D
--------------------A
--------------------E

Verse 2(Bono):

Used to make love under the red sunset,
I was making promises I that were soon to forget.
She was pale as the lace of her wedding gown,
But I left her standing before love came to town.

Verse 3(Bono):

Ran into a juke joint when I heard a guitar scream,
The notes were turning blue as days are a dream.
As the music played I saw my life turn around
That was the day before love came to town.

Chorus(B.B.):

The Edge solo (he picks open E chord)
Play the figure 4 times (# this note plays only the first time):

0#-|-----------0-|----------E
---|--0----------|----------B
---|----1--------|----------G
---|-----2-------|----------D
---|-------2-----|----------A
---|---------0---|----------E  

Chorus(B.B.) over The Edge's solo part (the figure above):

B.B.'s solo, sorry I do not remember it, but it is basically played
around the fill he does between the first chorus and the second verse.

Verse 4(B.B.), there is no guitar part over this one:

I was there when they crucified my lord
I held the scabbard when the soldier drew his sword
I threw the dice as they pierced his side,
But I've seen love conquer the great divide.

Chorus(B.B.):

The second solo by B.B. in the beginning of which Bono sings his famous:
"Yeah, Yeah, Yeah.........."
And it fades as B.B. solos.

 "God Part 2"

 E7
Don't believe the devil, I don't believe his book
But the truth is not the same without the lies he made up
 A
I don't believe in excess, success is to give
  E7
I don't believe in riches, but you should see where I live
 B (Bb) A            E7
I......I believe in love

I don't believe in forced entry, I don't believe in rape
But every time she passes by, wild thoughts escape
I don't believe in skid-row, death-row or the gangs
I don't believe in the Uzi, it just went off in my hand
I......I believe in love

I don't believe in cocaine, I got a speed-ball in my head
I could crack you open Do you hear what I said ?
I don't believe them when they tell me there ain't no cure
The rich stay healthy and the sick stay poor
I......I believe in love

I don't believe in Goldman, his type like a curse
Instant karma's going to get him if I don't get him first
I don't believe in rock 'n roll can really change the world
As it spins in revolution, spirals and turns
I......I believe in love

I don't believe in the 60's, the golden age of pop
You glorify the past when the future dries up
I heard a singer on the radio late last night
He says he's going to kick the darkness, until it bleeds daylight
I......I believe in love

I feel like I'm falling I'm spinning on a wheel
It always stops beside me with a presence I can feel
I......I believe in love

In the howling wind comes a stinging rain
See it driving nails into the souls on a tree of pain
From the firefly a red-orange glow
I see the face of fear
Running scared in the valley below
Bullet the blue sky
Bullet the blue sky

In locust wind comes a rattle and hum
Judith wrestled the angel
And the angel was overcome
She had a demon seed
She rase flower of fire
I see her burning crosses
I see the flames higher and higher
Bullet the blue sky
Bullet the blue sky

And I see her come up to me
Her dress red
Like a rose on a thorn bush
Like all the colors of a royal flush
And she's pealing off those dollar bills
And slapping them down
One hundred
Two hundred
And I can see those fighter planes
And I can see those fighter planes
Across the mud huts where the children sleep
Through the alleys and quiet city streets
Up a staircase to the first floor
I turn the key and slowly unlock the door
A man breathes into a saxophone
Through the walls we hear the city groan
Outside it's America
Outside it's America

"So I'm back in my hotel room,
 With Johnnie Coltrane and the love supreme,
 In the next room I hear some woman scream out,
 That her lover's turning off,
 Turning on the television,
 I can't tell the difference between :-
 ABC news, Hill Street Blues
 And some preacher in the old time gospel hour
 Stealing money from the sick and the old
 Well the God I believe in ain't short of cash Mister !!"

See across the view
See the sky ripped open
See the rain pounding the women and children
Who run
Into the arms of America......

Selling your kisses so very sweet

 I'm gonna make it
 Oh the prize is to hold you back)
A primitive love
And we're riding the mystery train
A primitive love
A room at the heart
Heartbreak hotel.

[Verse]

Hearts gone astray, deep in hurt when they go
I went away just when you needed me so
You won't regret
I'll come back beggin' you
Don't you forget
Welcome love we once knew.

Open up your eyes
Then you'll realise
Here I stand with my
Everlasting Love.
Need you by my side
Girl to be my pride
You'll never be denied
Everlasting Love

From the very start open up your heart
Be elected part of Everlasting Love
This love will last forever.
This love will last forever.

Hearts gone astray, deep in hurt when they go
I went away just when you needed me so
You won't regret
I'll come back beggin' you
Don't you forget
Welcome love we once knew.

Where life really flows
No-one really knows
'Till someone's there to
show the way to Everlasting Love.

Like the sun it shines
Endlessly it shines
You always will be mine
With eternal love.

Whenever love went wrong
Ours would still be strong
We'd have our very own
Everlasting Love

This love will last forever
This love will last forever
Open up your eyes
Then you'll realise
Everlasting love

A            D
Hearts gone astray

E              B
  Open up your eyes
            A
Then you realize
                 F#m
Here are (?) and I
    B       E
Everlasting love

Need you by my side
Love will be my pride
You'll never be denied
Everlasting love

Love will never starve (?)
Open up your heart
Feel the love you've got
Everlasting love

               B            C
This love will last forever
               E
This love will last forever

Hearts gone astray
Keeping up when they're gone
I went away
Just when you needed me so
You won't regret
I'll come back begging you
Don't you forget
Will come (welcome?) love we once knew
Yeah

When life really flows
No one really knows
The sun will have to show them
Everlasting love

Like the sun it shines
Endlessly it shines
You always will be mine
Eternal love

Whatever love went wrong
Ours will still be strong
We'll have our own
Everlasting love

This love will last forever
This love will last forever

Open up your eyes
Then you'll realize
Here are (?) and mine (?)
Everlasting love

Need you by my side
Love will be my pride
Never be denied
Everlasting love

(?) star (?)
Open up your heart
Feel the love you've got
Everlasting love

[Ending]

E B             A    F#m
    Everlasting love
    B       E    B
Everlasting love
            A    F#m
Everlasting love
    B       E    B A F#m B E
Everlasting love

I'm gonna be there when her heart kindles next to mine
I'm gonna be...here she comes...yeah here she comes...

 "Dancing Barefoot"
  ----------------			[By Patti Smith and Ivan Kral]
Tune down one-half step (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb)

[Intro]

Em D Em D Em D Em D

[Verse]

Em D   Em    D
She is benediction
Em D     Em        D
She is addicted to he
Em D       Em       D
She is the root connection and
Em D       Em          D
She is connecting with me

Em        D        Em           D Em
   Here I go and I don't know why
  D       Em       D  Em
I spin so ceaselessly
         D       Em     D    Em D Em D
Could it be he's taking over me

[Chorus]

G             A
  I'm dancing barefoot
C            D
Headed for a spin
Em                 A
Some strange music drags me in
C                D             Em  D Em D Em D Em D
Makes me come up like some heroine

She is sublimation
She is the essence of thee
She is concentrating on
He who is chosen by she

Here I go when I don't know why
I spin so ceaselessly
Could it be he's taking over me

I'm dancing barefoot
Headed for a spin
Some strange strange music drags me in
Makes me come up like some heroine

She is recreation
She intoxicated by thee
She has the slow sensation that
He is levitating with she

Here I go when I don't know why
I spin so ceaselessly
'Til I lose my sense of gravity

I'm dancing barefoot
Heading for a spin
Some strange music drives me on
Makes me come up like some heroine

[Guitar solo: Em D...]

[Outro]

Em   D     Em        D  Em
   O God I feel for you
  D     Em        D  Em
O God I feel for you
  D     Em        D  Em
O God I feel for you
  D     Em        D
O God I feel for you

in silver and gold, just after the exit is sold, if you want a way out: i think it sounds better if you put a fonger above the 12th fret, dont push it, and then strum it. to me it sounds better than an Em.

p.s. sorry for the bad english, i'm from holland...
