Like A Song

"Like A Song" U2, from War (1983) one of my favorite U2 songs and it was miserable for me to figure out but its really simple... tune down 1/2 step... VERSE: Em D A (good luck with the timing): Eb--------------------------------- Bb---0-------3--------0---------- Gb------0-------2--------2------- Db-2------2------------------2--- Ab------------------0------------- Eb--------------------------------- SOLO: Ascends up the second string - figuring it out's pretty simple - and the rhythm parts are all three-note power chords consisting of the 1st, 5th and 8th notes of the scale. e.g. "Angry words won't stop my fight" is a G power chord with the root on the fourth string, fifth fret which then slides up two frets to A for the next line. Like a song I have to sing, I sing it for you. Like the words I have to bring, I bring then to you. And in leather, lace, or chains, We stake our claim, Revolution once again But I won't, I won't wear it on my sleeve. I can see through this expression And you know i don't believe. I'm too old to be told, Exactly who are you? Tonight, tomorrow's too late. And we love to wear a badge, a uniform, And we love to fly a flag. But I won't let others live in hell, As we divide against each other and fight amongst ourselves. Too set in our ways to try to rearrange, Too right to be wrong, in this rebel song. Let the bells ring out, in there nothing left? Is honesty what you want? A generation without name, ripped and torn, Nothing to lose, nothing to gain, Nothing at all. And if you can't help yourself, Well take a look around you, when others need your time. You say it's time to go it's your time. Angry words won't stop the fight. Twowrongs won't make a right. A new heart is what I need, Oh God, make it bleed, Is there nothing left? transcribed by: adrian morse ([email protected]) my e-mail address will change to ([email protected]) within 2 weeks...
