Song Title: Love comes tumbling
Artist/Band: U2
Album: Wide amake in America, 1985

Tab by JC Rea(jcrp_21@hotmail.com)

Symbols:

/=slide-up

Tuning:Standard

NOTE: Except for the main riff, a tricky song to tab out. Since the Edge plays variable
patterns and also some blocked-string sounds between chords strumming all along the song,
it would be a nightmare trying to write every strumming pattern into an understandable tab.
I thought it would be better to write chord indications just to ilustrate the formations
where they must be played; all chord formations I heard are shown; for rythm and strumming 
patterns it's obviously necessary to listen to the song. Anyway, when it's about chord strumming 
patterns, it's up to you how to do it, putting your own style to it.

INTRO:

e|-------7-------7-------7-------7--|---------7---------7---------7---------7--|
B|-8---8---8---8---8---8---8---8----|-10---10---10---10---10---10---10---10----|
G|---9-------9-------9-------9------|----9---------9---------9---------9-------|
D|----------------------------------|------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------|------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------|------------------------------------------|(x2)

e|-------7-------7---------7---------7--|-------7-------7-------7------7--|
B|-8---8---8---8---10---10---10---10----|-8---8---8---8---7---7---7----7--|
G|---9-------9--------9---------9-------|---9-------9-------7-------7-----|
D|--------------------------------------|---------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------|---------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------|---------------------------------|

Then, these chord formations:

e|--2--|--0--|
B|--3--|--3--|
G|--0--|--2--|
D|--2--|--0--|
A|--2--|--0--|
E|--0--|--x--|

Listen to the song to figure out the rythm, for this part and for verses.


1st VERSE:

"Love don't need to find a way
 You find your own way
 I forget that I can't stay
 And so I say that"


1st CHORUS:

 (These two bars are meant only to show chord formations
 and the way one chord slides to another, according to what's
 heard in the song. As always, listen to it to figure the rythm out)

"All roads lead to...       ...where you are
e|-0-0-0-0-0-0---0--0-0--|-0-0-0-0-0-0---0--0-0--|

B|-3-3-3-3-3-3-/-5--5-5--|-3-/-5--5--5-/-7--5--|
G|-2-2-2-2-2-2-/-4--4-4--|-2-/-4--4--4-/-7--4--|
D|-2-2-2-2-2-2-/-5--5-5--|-2-/-5--5--5-/-7--5--|
A|-0-0-0-0-0-0-----------|-0-------------------|
E|-----------------------|---------------------|

2nd VERSE:

"The seed is spilled, the bed defiled
 For you, a virgin bride
 Hide yourself in someone else
 Don't find yourself in me"

2nd CHORUS:

    "I can't... ...lift you up again"
e|--0---0-0-0--|----3----3--3---|--0---0-0-0--|----3----3--3---|

G|--0------0--0-0-0--|
D|--2------2--2-2-2--|

G|--2--2--2------2--2--2------0--|
D|--0--0--0------2--2--0------2--|

G|---9-------9--------9---------9-------|---9-------9-------7-------7-----|
D|--------------------------------------|---------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------|---------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------|---------------------------------|

3rd VERSE:

"Love don't need to find a way
 You find your own way
 I forget that you can stay
 And so I say that"

3rd CHORUS:
(Just like the 2nd one)

"All roads lead to where you are
 All roads lead to where you are"


BRIDGE:

e|--2--2--0------0--0--0------7--|
B|--3--3--3--3---1--1--0------8--|
G|--2--2--2------2--2--2------9--|
D|--0--0--0------2--2--0------9--|
A|---------------0--0--0------7--|
E|-------------------------------|(X4)


RIFF:
(a little palm muted)

e|-------0-------0-------0-------0--|---------0---------0---------0---------0--|
B|-8---8---8---8---8---8---8---8----|-10---10---10---10---10---10---10---10----|
G|---9-------9-------9-------9------|----9---------9---------9---------9-------|
D|----------------------------------|------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------|------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------|------------------------------------------|(x2)


e|-------0-------0---------0---------0--|----------0----------0----------0----------0--|
B|-8---8---8---8---10---10---10---10----|-12----12---12----12---15----15---15----15----|
G|---9-------9--------9---------9-------|----12---------12---------16---------16-------|
D|--------------------------------------|----------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------|----------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------|----------------------------------------------|(x3)

Then:

e|-------0-------0---|---0---|
B|-8---8---8---8-----|---8---|
G|---9-------9-------|---9---|(keep strumming this formation several times)
D|-------------------|---9---|
A|-------------------|-------|
E|-------------------|-------|


At the same time, while one guitar is heard strumming that xx9980 chord, another one
is heard doing this over and over:

e|-------0-------0-------0-------0--|
B|-8---8---8---8---8---8---8---8----|
G|---9-------9-------9-------9------|
D|----------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------|

Then, the song ends with these chord formations:

e|--2--|--0--|
B|--3--|--3--|
G|--0--|--2--|
D|--2--|--0--|
A|--2--|--0--|
E|--0--|--x--|
