                      THE SAINTS ARE COMING - U2/Green Day
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: ygokazuki
Email: ygokazuki@gmail.com

Tuning: Standard

This a pretty cool song, though I've never heard the original and can't find it 
:(
This is the studio recording, which was remarkably simple;
just 2 takes of guitar, The Edge and Billie, all tabbed out.
Please rate/comment/email! :)
Enjoy.
