"The Wanderer"
set tempo
This is for the song featuring U2.  The other one is in the wrong key.  

I went out walking through the streets paved with gold
Lifted some stones, saw the skin and bones
Of a city without a soul
I went out walking under an atomic sky
Where the ground wont turn and the rain it burns
Like the tears when I said goodbye

   Em               C
Yeah I went with nothing
   G               D
Nothing but the thought of you
       Em         C    D    G
I went wandering

I went drifting through the capitals of tin
Where men cant walk
Or freely talk
And sons turn their fathers in
I stopped outside a church house
Where the citizens like to sit
They say they want the kingdom
But they dont want God in it

I went out riding
Down that ol eight lane
I passed by a thousand signs
Looking for my own name

I went with nothing
But the thought youd be there too
Looking for you

I went out there
In search of experience
To taste and to touch
And to feel as much
As a man can
Before he repents

I went out searching, lookin for one good man
A spirit who would not bend or break
Who would sit at his fathers right hand
I went out walking with a Bible and a gun
The word of God lay heavy on my heart
I was sure I was the one
Now jesus, dont you wait up
Jesus, Ill be home soon
Yeah I went out for the papers
Told her Id be back by noon

Yeah I left with nothing
But the thought youd be there too
Looking for you...
Yeah I left with nothing
Nothing but the thought of you...
I went wandering

U2 played this song as a tribute to Johnny Cash:


The Chords are different....I guess it's because Bono's voice is not as low as mr. Cash's is. When I put my capo on the 4th fret, it's ok. But doesn't sound that great.

Is there somebody here who could figure out the right chords, for this live version that is.

Pretty good song and easy chords. You should put a a tab riff up for a second guitar. That'd be cool

Good job. One comment: In the chorus, change to D on "you", not on "thought".
