U2 - How to dismantle an atomic bomb - Vertigo

'Sing-a-long' chords as an addendum to the tab versions by others. I'm working on a
single guitar acoustic version, more tab to come later

Ver. 1.0, updated on 28.11.2004

Unos, dos, tres, catorce! (Turn it up loud, captn')


[Verse 1]

E                   D                        E
Lights go down, it's dark The jungle is your head,
Can't rule your heart a feeling's so much stronger than a thought 
your eyes are wide and though your soul, it can't be bought 
your mind can wander


[Chorus]

E       D  
Hello hello (Hola!)
G                     A
I'm at a place called Vertigo (Donde esta)
     E                   D
It's everything I wish I didn't know 
       G           D               E
Except you give me something I can feel, feel


[Verse 2]
(same as verse 1)

The night is full of holes As bullets rip the sky
Of ink with gold They twinkle as the Boys play rock and roll
They know they can't dance At least they know....

I can't stand the beat I'm asking for the cheque
The girl with crimson nails Has Jesus round her neck
Swinging to the music Swinging to the music / Oh oh oh oh


[Chorus]

Hello hello / I'm at a place called Vertigo
It's everything I wish I didn't know 
But you give me something I can feel, feel


[Interlude]

E-D-A  E             E D A             E D A              D
(~    Check mated      Shots fall ...    shove me in  yeah~)


[Solo break w/basic riff x 4]

D      E     D               E        {repeat}
All of this, all of this can be yours
All of this, all of this can be yours
All of this, all of this can be yours
     G                       A
Just give me what I want and no-one gets hurt...


[Chorus]

Hello hello (hola!) / We're at a place called Vertigo (Donde esta)
Lights go down and all I know is that / you give me something 
      E              D           A        D    {repeat}
I can feel your love teaching me ho-o-o-o-o-ow
Your love is teaching me how, how to kneel... kneel
{Basic riff} Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah / Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah  ... Yeah 

(end on E)

Unos, dos, tres, catorce! (Turn it up loud, captn')

I do hope the bit in brackets is not your translation
its actually 1, 2, 3, 14 in spanish. why bono chose toleap from 3 to 14 is another matter entirely
