U2 – Stay (Faraway, So Close!)
As Performed Live Acoustically on the Elevation Tour from Boston

Transcribed by Eden Kung (KefkaTheMad@Yahoo.com)

This is the acoustic version of Stay (Faraway, So Close!) that U2 played on 
their Elevation tour DVD. It’s drastically different from the original and 
sounds better in my humble opinion.
