"Staring At The Sun" (Acoustic) 

I had to update this tab, everyone was nice enough to give me a good rating.
I wanted to complete it as much as I could. Enjoy! Remember, this is from the "Live
Acoustic" version from Popmart Tour.

Tune 1/2 Step!!!

Am                 G            F               Em 
 Summer stretching on the grass, Summer dresses pass
Am                 G            F                 Em
 In the shade of a willow tree, Creeps a crawling over me
Am           G         F                   Em
 Over me and over you, Stuck together with God`s glue
Am                     G                     F
 It`s going to get stickier too, It`s been a long hot summer 
           G                 F                                     G
 Let`s get undercover, Don`t try too hard to think, Don`t think at all 
 
                 C     
 I`m not the only one 
                Am
 Starin` at the sun 
                      Dsus
 Afraid of what you`d find 
                 F      
 You step back inside 
                          C
 You're not just deaf and dumb 
                Am
 Staring at the sun 
                     Dsus
 You're not the only one 
                   F          
 Who`s happy to go blind 

  
 Am, Dsus x2


Am                G             F                Em
There`s an insect in your ear, If you scratch it won`t disappear 
Am             G               F                        Em
Gonna itch and burn and sting, You want to see what the scratching brings 
Am                  G             F                Em
Waves that leave me out of reach, Breaking on your back like a beach 
Am           G
Will we ever live in peace? 
      F                  G
Cause those that can`t do...often have to 
F                  G
Those that can`t do...often have to preach 
        C     
 To the ones 
                Am
 Starin` at the sun 
                      Dsus
 Afraid of what you`d find 
                 F      
 You step back inside 
                          C
 You're not just deaf and dumb 
                Am
 Staring at the sun 
                     Dsus
 You're not the only one 
                   F          
 Who`s happy to go blind 

  Am, Dsus x2

Am               G           F        Em
Intransigence is all around, Military still in town 
Am            G              F                 Em
Armour plated suits and ties, Daddy just won`t say goodbye 
Am            G                 F               Em
Referee won`t blow the whistle, God is good but will he listen 
Am                           G
I`m nearly great but there`s something I`m missing 
  F               G
I left in the      duty free
    F                     G   
She never really belonged to me 

                  C     
 I`m not the only one 
                Am
 Starin` at the sun 
                      Dsus
 Afraid of what you`d find 
                 F      
 You step back inside 
                       C
 I'm not sucking on my thumb 
                    Am
 I'm staring at the sun 
                  Dsus
 I'm not the only one 
                   F          
 Who`s happy to go blind 
              C
  Happy to go blind
              Am
  Happy to go blind
              Dsus
  Happy to go blind
             F
Happy to go, happy to go
              C
  Happy to go blind
              Am
  Happy to go blind
              Dsus
  Happy to go blind
             F                      (C)
Happy to go, happy to go, happy to go...blind

after the song, he comes in and does...

Am         Dsus           Am        Dsus (x3)
Ohh OhhOhh Ohhh Uh uh Ohhhhhhhhh...

End.
