New Year's Day

U2

 

 

tune down half a step to Eb.

 

 

Am C Em

All is quiet on New Year's Day

 

Am C Em

A world in white, gets underway

 

Am C Em

And I want to be with you, be with you night and day

 

Am C Em Am

Nothing changes on New Year's Day

Em

On New Year's Day

 

 

Chorus:

 

G Am

I will be with you again

G F Am C Em

I will be with you again

 

 

Am C Em

Under a blood red sky

 

Am C Em

A crowd has gathered in black and white

 

Am C Em

Arms entwined, the chosen few

 

Am C Em G

Newspaper say, says, say it's true, it's true

 

Am

And we can break through

G F

Though torn in two, we can be one

 

 

G Am

I, I will begin again

G F Am C Em Am

I, I will begin again, yeah

 

 

Repeat Chorus and fade out

 

...

 

Piano part tabbed out for guitar (makes a nice addition to the piano part)

 

 

e--------------10--12-----8--10--7--------

A----------10-----------------------------

G----------------------------------------- Repeat about 3 times

D-----------------------------------------

B--12-------------------------------------

E-----------------------------------------

 

e--8-8-7--7--7--7-8-10--12-10-8--10-8--7-8-5--8-7-----------------

A-----------------------------------------------------------------

G-----------------------------------------------------------------

D-----------------------------------------------------------------

B-----------------------------------------------------------------

E-----------------------------------------------------------------

 

That's an easy way to do it, Edge throws some high (~15 on a guitar)

notes during live performances, which sound to me to be chaotic, but we

all know Edge...

 

The solo:

 

e--19--15--17--12--15--10--12--7-----------

A------------------------------------------

G------------------------------------------Bar the bass strings and slide up

D-------------------------------------1/13-as a transition between

B-------------------------------------1/13-the two repeats, sounds

E-------------------------------------1/13-cool.

Repeat once more.

 

Second part:

B------5-2-5-7-0-2--------5-2--10-10-9/5-10-9-9/2-10-9-9-10-12-10

E--0-5--------------0-2-5--------------------------------------------

 

or

 

B------5-2-5-7-0-2--------5-2--10-10-9---10-9---10-9-9-10-12-10

E--0-5--------------0-2-5---------------10-----7----------------

 

I like the first method because it looks cooler when you play it.

 

Verses: (This is the way Edge does it live, it's not on the album/single

versions)

These are played after the line is finished; listen to UABRS

and pick it up.

 

All is quiet on New Year's Day...

 

e---------------------------12-12------------------

A---------------------------------12---------------

D------------------------------------12------------

G---------------------------------------12---------

B--------------------------------------------------

A world in white gets underway...

 

e---------------------------------12------------

A------------------------------12---------------

D---------------------------12------------------

G------------------------12---------------------
