WHERE THE STREETS HAVE NO NAME

CHORDS UNDERNEATH

I want to run
D

I want to hide
I want to tear down the walls
That hold me inside
 	     G

I want to reach out
                Bm

And touch the flame
              A

Where the streets have no name
          Csus9


I want to feel, sunlight on my face
D

See that dust cloud disappear without a trace
				        G

I want to take shelter from the poison rain
               Bm		       A

Where the streets have no name
          Csus9

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
We're still building then burning down love
Burning down love
And when I go there
I go there with you...
It's all I can do

The city's a flood
D

And our love turns to rust
We're beaten and blown by the wind
Trampled in dust
         G

I'll show you a place
	        Bm

High on the desert plain
   	       A

Where the streets have no name
          Csus9


Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Still building then burning down love
Burning down love
And when I go there
I go there with you
It's all I can do

Our love turns to rust
D

And we're beaten and blown by the wind
                     G

Blown by the wind

Oh and I see love
             D

See our love turn to rust

And we're beaten and blown by the wind

Blown by the wind
    G

Oh when I go there 
         Bm

I go there with you
            A

It's all I can do
               D

I STILL HAVEN'T FOUND WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR


This song is played in the key of C# (C#, F#, G#), but works equally well
in C (C, F, G) or G (G, C, D), so long as you don't play along to the recording.

C#
I have climbed highest mountain
             G#
I have run through the fields
        F#
Only to be with you
        C#
Only to be with you

C#
I have run
       G# 
I have crawled
                    G#
I have scaled these city walls
           F#
These city walls
        C#
Only to be with you

      G#            F#             C#
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
      G#            F#             C#
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
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for

I believe in the kingdom come
Then all the colors will bleed into one
Bleed into one
Well yes I'm still running

You broke the bonds and you
Loosed the chains
Carried the cross
Of my shame
Of my shame
You know I believed it

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for X4
WITH OR WITHOUT YOU


D5                                       A5
See the stone set in your eyes
               C5                          G5
See the thorn twist in your side
D5                A5            C5             G5
I'll Wait for You

Sleight of hand and twist of fate
On a bed of nails she makes me wait
And I wait without you

With or Without you 2x

Through the storm we reach the shore
You give it all but I want more
And I'm waiting for you

With or Without you 2x

I can't live
With or Without you
And you give yourself away 2x
And you give 2x
And you give yourself away

My hands are tied
My body bruised she got me with
Nothing to win and
Nothing left to lose
And you give yourself away 2x
And you give 2x
And you give yourself away
With or Without You 2x
I Can't Live...With or Without You

Ohhhhhhh Ohhhhhhhh
With or Without you 2x
I can't live
With or without you 2x
Hoooooooo Hooooooo

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......

RUNNING TO A STAND STILL

D                                  G    
  And so she woke up, woke up from where she was lying still, said I
D                                     G
got to do something about where we're going.
D                      G
Step on a steam train,   step out of the driving rain, maybe
D                                G
  run from the darkness in the night, singing
A            C     G 
ah, ah la la la de day
A          C     G           D         G
  ah la la la de day, ah la la de day

Sweet the sin, but bitter the taste in my mouth.
I see seven towers, but I only see one way out.
You got to cry without weeping, talk without speaking,
scream without raising your voice, you know I took the poison,
from the poison stream, then I floated out of here, singing
ah, ah la la la de day
ah la la la de day, ah la la de day

 G      D     G
oooh, oooh, oooh

D
  She runs through the street with her eyes painted red
G
  under black belly of cloud in the rain
D
  in through the doorway she brings me
G                                                   D
white gold and pearls, stolen from the sea, she is raging
                       G  
she is raging, and the storm blows up in her eyes, she will
A                C    G
    suffer the needle chill
A                    C     G    D         G  D  G  D
    she's running to stand      still

RED HILL MINING TOWN


G                C
From Father to Son the blood runs thin
 G                C
Our faces frozen (still) against the wind
 G                C
The seam is split, the coal face cracked
 G                C
The lines are long and there's no going back
 G                    C
Through hands of steel and a heart of stone
 G                C             D
Our labour day has come and gone
         A
And you leave us holding on
    F
In Red Hill Town, as the lights go down

 G              D
I'm hanging on
                           F          C
You're all that's left to hold on to
 G              D
I'm holding on
                           F          C
You're all that's left to hold on to

The glass is cut, the bottle runs dry
Our love runs cold in the caverns of the night
We're wounded by fear, injured in doubt
I can lose myself, you I can't live without
Because you keep me holding on
In Red Hill Town, as the lights go down
I'm hanging on ...

And we scorch the earth, set fire to the sky
Stoop so low to reach so hihgh
A link is lost, the chain undone
Now we wait all day for the night to come
And it comes
And it comes
Like a hunter (child)

I'm hanging on
You're all that's left to hold on to
I'm hanging on
You're all that's left to hold on to
        G     D
We see love slowly stripped away
     F          C
Our love, has seen a better day

I'm hanging on
You're all that's left to hold on to
I'm holding on
You're all that's left to hold on to
See the lights go down on Red Hill Town
See lights go down on Red Hill Town

ONE TREE HILL

First verse with Riff 1:

C5                               F5
    We turn away to face the cold, enduring chill

           Bb5             F5     C5         C7 C5
    As the day begs the night for mercy love

C5                                   F5
    The sun's so bright it leaves no shadows, only scars

    Bb5         F5           C5            C7 C5
    carved into stone on the face of earth

C5                          F5
    The moon is up and over One Tree Hill

               Bb5    F5           C5
    We see the sun go down in your eyes


Chorus with Riff 2:

                 Bb   F         C5
    You run like river in like a sea
                   Bb   F              C5
    you run like a river runs to the sea


Second verse same as first verse:
    And in the world a heart of darkness, a firezone
    Where poets speak their hearts, then bleed for it
    Jara sang, his song a weapon, in the hands of love
    You know his blood still cries from the ground


Chorus as before.

    while bullets rape the night of the merciful

                                 F    
    I'll see you again when the stars fall from the sky

EXIT

Em
You know he got the cure...but then he went astray,
    C                               G
He used to stay awake to drive the dreams he had away
     Em                      C          G
He wanted to believe in the hands of love...

His head it felt heavy as he cut across the land
A dog started crying like a broken hearted man
At the howling wind... the howling wind

He went deeper into black, deeper into white...
he could see the stars shine like nails in the night
He felt the healing, healing, healing, healing hands of love
Like the stars shiny, shiny... from above.

He put his hands in the pocket, his finger on the steel
The pistol weighed heavy, his heart he could feel
Was beating, beating, beating, beating oh my love
Oh my love, oh my love, oh my love.

(He saw the hands that build could also pull down....
The hands of love)


MOTHERS OF THE DISAPPEARED 

A
Midnight, our sons and daughters
Were cut down and taken from us
             E         D/F#
Hear their heartbeat...
                A
We hear their heartbeat

In the wind, we hear their laughter
In the rain we see their tears
Hear their heartbeat..., we hear their heartbeat

Night hangs like a prisoner
Stretched over black and blue
Hear their heartbeat..., we hear their heartbeat

In the trees our sons stand naked
Through the walls our daughters cry
See their tears in the rainfall
