In God's Country

U2

 

 

first bit is done with standard D Am chords

with 7th fret harmonics over it

 

then edge plays these two chords for D and Am:

 

E A D G B e

D= x x x 14 15 14

Am=x x x 14 13 12

 

but cuts out after 4 times through

 

then its just the bass and acoustic guitar (plus a bit of an

overlayed electric playing D (barred at the 5th) and Am (also

barred at the 5th)

 

on "Desert Rose..." An electric comes in with this little riff

 

e--17-17-17-17-17-17-15-15-14-14-12-12-12-12-------

 

(timing is not exact here...play with it)

repeated once or twice and stops at the chorus

 

after the chorus, for the short intstrumental, play the two D

and Am chords up high (tabbed at the top) and cut out for the

verse

 

on "She is Liberty..." play the two high D and Am again in

place of the standard chords (until chorus)

 

after this chorus, play this

 

D D Am (riff) A---3-2-0-----

low E tuned down to D---------0---

 

(altho you dont HAVE

to play it like that.

just dont play the

last note...)

 

repeat above once and immediately play this solo

 

e--19-19-19-19-19-17-17-19-19-15-15-14-14-14

(play through 4 times)

 

and once the verse starts again, jam on one of these two things

 

e--10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-9-10-10-10-10-10-10-14 (etc...)

 

or the two high D and Am chords

 

the last intensely high little bit is this

 

e==21-21-21-21-21-21-21-21-22-22-22-22-22-22-21-21-21-21-21-22-

 

e==22-22-22-22-22-22-22 (again, timing not exact)

 

and slide down to end on a standard D (sounds cool if you slide

the D up indefinitely at the end like Edge does...)

 

just listen to the album or rattle and hum version (the movie)

to get the timing right...the solos don't sound quite right

unless you play with a delay, but im sure you can figure

something out...

 

***************************************************************************

In God's Country

 

D Am

Desert Sky

D Am

Dream beneath a desert sky

D Am

The rivers run but soon run dry

D Am

We need new dreams tonight

 

Desert rose

Dreamed I saw a desert rose

Dress torn in ribbons and in bows

Like a siren she calls to me

 

Em G D Em G D

Sleep comes like a drug... In God's Country

Em G D Em G D

Sad eyes crooked crosses... In God's Country

 

Set me alight

We'll punch a hole right through the night

Everyday the dreamers die

To see what's on the other side

 

She is Liberty

And she comes to rescue me

Hope faith, her vanity

The greatest gift is gold

 

 

Sleep comes like a drug... In God's Country

Sad eyes crooked crosses... In God's Country

 

Naked flame

She stands with a naked flame

I stand with the sons of Cain

Burned by the fire of love

D Am

Burned by the fire of love

D Am

love
