U2 ? The Ground Beneath Her Feet
(Words by S. Rushdi)

From the soundtrack to the Million Dollar Hotel.

Tabbed by Mark Jones 15/10/00.

This is my interpretation of the song based on Bono and The Edge's
acoustic performance on TFI Friday on St. Patricks Day 2000.

The chords required are:

Bm  : 799777
F#m : 244222
G   : 355433
A   : 577655

This chord progression is used throughout the intro and verses:
Bm  F#m  G  A

For the intro and first two verses I use this picking:

   Bm           F#m          G            A
    On these bits start with the E string
    And strum up towards the D.

And now for the song:

Verse 1: (pick chords)
Bm     F#m    G          A
All my life I worshipped her
Bm         F#m        G        A
Her golden voice, her beauties beat
        Bm      F#m          G       A
How she made us feel how she made me real

Chorus: (strum chords)
        G                  F#m
And the ground beneath her feet
        G                  A
And the ground beneath her feet

Verse 2: (pick chords ? lyric structure slightly more complicated)
      Bm          F#m   G       A           Bm
Now I can't be sure, be sure of anything
F#m      G         A               Bm
Black is white and cold is heat
F#m        G           A          Bm    F#m
For what I worshipped    stole my love away

Chorus: (strum chords)
           G                  F#m
It was the ground beneath her feet
           G                  A
It was the ground beneath her feet

Middle 8: (Strum chords from here on in)
Bm   F#m              G           A
  Go lightly down your darkened way
Bm   F#m            G       A
  Go lightly on the ground
Bm        F#m            G       A
  I'll be down  there in another day
        G                 A
I won't rest until your      found

Play middle 8 again, but replace words by do do do's


Bm (strum once)
  Let me love you
A (strum once)
  Let me rescue you
G                             A
  Let me take where two roads meet
  And I'll come back above
A                         G   F#m
  when there is only love
     G      F#m
Only love
     G      A
Only love
     Bm (strum once to end)
Only love

Hope you enjoy it.  There are mp3's available on the web if you can't
get the timings (try www.zoonation.com as a starting point)
