[Intro]

Dm            Am                       Am    Em
    And love   is not the easy thing
                             Em
The only baggage that you can bring
Dm                                         Am
And love is not the easy thing
                                           Em
The only baggage you can bring
Em
Is all that you can't leave behind

And there it is!  This is a great song from U2 and pretty fun to play.  It might not be 
a very good tab as this is my first shot at writing tabs.  If you have any comments, 
suggestions, or even insults, send them to stephgurl2000@hotmail.com.  To make it a bit
easier for people playing the acoustic sections, I've written them along with the lyrics.  
Have fun!


[Intro]

Dm            Am                       Am    Em
    And love   is not the easy thing
                             Em
The only baggage that you can bring
Dm                                         Am
And love is not the easy thing
                                           Em
The only baggage you can bring
Em
Is all that you can't leave behind



D     A     G     E


[Verse 1]

D                  E                     G
   And if the darkness is to keep, us a-part...
D                   E                         G
   And if the daylight feels like it's, a long way, off...
D                     A                             G
    And if your glass heart should crack
                      E
And for a second you turn back
D             E             A
    Oh no         Be strong             oh...oh....


[Chorus]

         D                  A
Walk on      Walk on
                   G
What you got they can't steal it

         E
No they can't even feel it
       D                           A
Walk on           Walk on
G                       E
   Stay safe tonight


[Verse 2]

D                              E                     G
   You're packing a suitcase for a place, none of us has been...
D                         E                       G
   A place that has to be believed,    to be, seen
D                             A
   You could have flown away
       G                      E
A singing bird, in an open cage
              D                E               A
Who will, only fly,    only fly, for freedom    Oh...oh....

[Chorus]

          D                      A
Walk on           Walk on
                     G
What you've got they can't deny it
            E
Can't sell it, or buy it
           D                         A
Walk on              Walk on....
G                            E
    You stay safe tonight


[Bridge]

             D                              A
And I know it aches, and your, heart it breaks
                       E
And you can only take so much

[Solo]
D               A             G           E
   Walk.... On......
D               A             G            A
    Walk....      On.....

[Interlude]

D        E                 G
Home.......Hard to know what that is,  if you've never had one
D        E                G
Home.......I can't say where it is,    but I know I'm going

D      E                                   G
Home........That's where the hurt is

[Bridge]

             D                              A
And I know it aches, and your, heart it breaks
                       E
And you can only take so much

[Outro]

             D       A         E            A
Walk on                      Hooooo........
                        D          A                                                G           E
Leave it behind                 You've got to leave it behind


                   D                             A
All that you fashion, all that you make
                   G                         E
All that you build, all that you break
                   D                                A
All that you measure,  all that you feel
                    G                       A
All this you can,  leave  behind
                  D                               A
All that you reason,  needs only time
                  G                 E
All that I'm feelin on my mind
                    D                             A
All that you sense,   All that you scheme
                     G                            E
All you dress up and all that you seem
fade

All the verses should be Em instead of E except for the very last line of each verse.

The outro should go Em, G, D, A with some Dsus4's and Asus's thrown in for flavor. It's definitely NOT D,A,G,E.
