SOMETIMES YOU CAN'T MAKE IT ON YOUR OWN
U2
From the album How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb
Tabbed by: Dave Curran (u2_13@hotmail.com)

Intro
A G F#m D A

A
Tough
    G
You think you've got the stuff
       F#m            D
You're telling me and anyone
       A
You're hard enough

    A
You don't have to put up a fight
      G
Don't always have to be right
F#m                       D
  Let me take some of the punches
    A
For you tonight

D              A
  Listen to me now
                  D
I need to let you know
 
You don't have to go it alone

         A                      E
And it's you when I look in the mirror
         D
And it's you when I don't pick up the phone
 A                  E               D
Sometimes you can't make it on your own

   A             G
We fight all the time
        F#m
You and I
         D
That's alright
          A
We're the same soul

        A
I don't need
      G
Don't need to hear you say
           F#m         D
That if we weren't so alike
                A
You'd like me a whole lot more

D              A
  Listen to me now
                  D
I need to let you know

You don't have to go it alone

         A                       E
And it's you when I look in the mirror
         D                 
And it's you when I don't pick up the phone
  A                 E               D
Sometimes you can't make it on your own

F     C     Dm
              I know that we don't talk
F     C     Dm
        I'm sick of it all
F     C     Dm 
    Can you hear me when I
A
Sing
 D
You're the reason I sing
                  E        A
You're the reason why the opera's in me
    D
Hey now
                     A
Still got to let you know
                       D
A house doesn't make a home
                    E
Don't leave me here alone

         A                      E
And it's you when I look in the mirror
         D                       
And it's you that makes it hard to let go
A                   E               D
Sometimes you can't make it on your own
A                   E
Sometimes you can't make it
D
Best you can do is to fake it
A                   E               D
Sometimes you can't make it on your own

End on A

The riffs are pretty easy, just throw in some sus4's and sus2's on the first A - all the other riffs in the studio version of the song are keyboards, I think.

Anyways, I have a correction. The second D in the prechorus ought to be an F#m. 244222 just in case. This was only the third tab I ever wrote (I wrote the first two tabs for Electrical Storm and The Hands that Built America too), so you'll have to forgive me.
