"The Refugee"
U2 (WAR, 1983)

tune down 1/2 step...

Chords:  C, Bb, C
C: 3 3 5 5 5 3
Bb: 1 1 3 3 3 1
C: x 3 2 0 1 0

                (C)                               (B)
Riff A:  1 1 3 x x x   slide up to 3 3 5 x x x

      (C)                (Play parentheses palm-muted, then hit the
                      chords and slide)
E-x----------------------------------------------|
B-x----------------------------------------------|
G-x----------------------------------------------|
D--3/5--------------(3)-(3)-(3)-3/5--------------|
A--1/3--------------(1)-(1)-(1)-1/3--------------|
E--1/3--------------(1)-(1)-(1)-1/3--------------|

Bridge:

         (C)          (C)    (B)     (C)
E-----------------------------------|
B--5-----5--5-5->3-3-->1------------|
G-----5-----5-5->3-3---0------------|
D-----------5-5->3-3-->2------------|
A----------------------3------------|
E-----------------------------------|

        Easy, just play the barred C chord arpeggiated, hit the chord,
slide down to B, hit it twice, then quickly switch to the regular C
chord.  I wish I could make it sound as simple on paper as it really is...


Oh oh
She's the refugee
I see your face
I see you staring back at me
Oh oh
She's the refugee
Her mama say one day
                            (Riff A)
She's gonna live in America

(C)
In the morning
(Bb)
She is waiting
(C)
Waiting for the ship to sail
(B)
Sail away
(Riff A)
Oh oh
         (Riff A)
Her papa go to war
           (Riff A)
He gonna fight

But he don't know what for
     (Riff A)
Oh oh
          (Riff A)
Her papa go to war
Her mama say one day
He's gonna come back from far away

Help me

How can you help me?
(C)
In the evening
(Bb)
She is waiting
(C)
Waiting for her man to come
(Bb)
And take her by her hand
(C)
And take her to this promise land
   (Riff A)
Oh oh
She's a pretty face
(Riff A)
Born at the wrong time
In the wrong place
   (Riff A)
Oh oh
She's a pretty face
   (Riff A)
Her mama say one day
She's gonna live in America
Yeah, America
Oh oh
She's a refugee
She's coming down
She come and keep you company
Oh oh
She's a refugee
Her mama say one day
She's gonna live in America
