Subject: CRD: A Sort of Homecoming (U2)


A Sort of Homecoming    (From the album "The Unforgettable Fire")

 NOTE: Much of this is taken from the book The Best of U2

Intro: C6  C2  C6  C2  C6  C2  C6  C2

And you know it's time to go
        C6                   C2

through the sleet and driving snow
                 C6                C2

across the fields of mourning to a
light's in the distance
C2             C6       G4 C2

And you hunger for the time
        C6                  C2

time to heal, 'Desire', time
        C6                  C2

and your earth moves beneath
         C6                 C2

your own dream landscape
         C6        C2

Oh, ho, ho on borderland we run________
C      C2 C   C2            C2 G4 G Cii

I'll be there, I'll be there
C             C2   C        C2

tonight, a high road, a high road out of here
       C2  G4           G                Cii

the city walls are all come down
the dust a smoke screen all around to see
faces ploughed like fields that once
gave no resistance

And we live by the side of the road
on the side of a hill as the valleys explode
dislocated, suffocated
the land grows weary of it's own

O come away, o come away, o come, o come away I say I  hmm hmm
C6                 C2           C6                 C2

O come away, o come away, o come, o come away I say I
C6                 C2           C6                 C2

Oh, ho, ho on borderland we run, and still we run, we run and don't look back
C      C2 C   C2            C2       G4               G                     C

I'll be there, I'll be there tonight    tonight      tonight
C             C2   C        C2                C2  G4   G     G4

I'll be there tonight, I believe.  I'll be there so high (land),

I'll be there tonight, tonight____________
                         G     C2     C6  C2

O come away, I sing  I say, um ha,  o come away oh say.
C6                C2                C6                  C2

The wind will crack in wintertime

this bomb-blast lightning waltz
C2              C6

no spoken words, just a scream . . . yeah.... oh........ oh.....
C2        C6            C2  C6        G4  G   C   C2     C   C2

tonight we'll build a bridge across the sea and land
  C2          G4              G                     Cii

see the sky burning rain
C              C2

she will die and live again tonight_______
   C             C2           C2  G4 G Cii  C6  C2  C6  G4 G  C6  C2  C6  G4 G

And you heart beats so slow
through the rain and fallen snow
across the fields of morning
to a light that's in the distance
Oh don't sorrow, no don't weep
for tonight, at last
I am coming home
I am coming home
