U2 STAY (Faraway, So Close!) As performed live by U2. Transcribed by Javier Cayuela ( [email protected] ). Tune down half a step. *corrections- *Stay--This song is in E, tuned down 1/2 step, and the chords given are in fact correct, but they are an octave too high. Start with E major, then F# major, then A major chords, barring the last 2 going up the neck. Plus, they are the chords as heard in the live version, and the studio version sounds a little different. The main riff of the song uses Eb, E, F# on the 2nd string. (from Leniart, Brandon K ([email protected])) CHORDS: There are two guitars: Bono Edge E 022100 main riff F# 044300 244300 F#m 044200 044200 A 077600 577600 B 099800 799800 G#m 446654 046650 main riff h h h E --x-x------2---------x-x------2---------x-x-------2-4---------- B --4-5----5----5------4-5----5----5------4-5-----5-------------- G --4-4--4-------------4-4--4-------------4-4---4---------------- D --2-2----------------2-2----------------2-2-------------------- A --------------------------------------------------------------- E --------------------------------------------------------------- h = hammer on (Bono plays chords) E F# Green light, Seven Eleven A E You stop in for a pack of cigarettes F# You don't smoke, don't even want to A E Hey now, check your change F# Dressed up like a car crash A E The wheels are turning but you're upside down ( Edge plays arpeggiated chords) F#m E You say when he hits you, you don't mind F#m E Because when he hurts you, you feel alive F# A E Is that what it is? (Edge plays main riff) Red lights, grey morning You stumble out of a hole in the ground A vampire or a victim It depends on who's around You used to stay in to watch the adverts You could lip synch to the talk shows (Edge plays arpeggiated chords) F#m G#m And if you look, you look through me A And when you talk it's not to me B And when I touch you, you don't feel a thing F#m E If I could stay... then the night would give you up F#m E Stay, and the day would keep its trust F#m A E Stay, and the night would be enough (Edge plays main riff) Faraway, so close Up with the static and the radio With satellite television You can go anywhere Miami, New Orleans, London, Belfast and Berlin (Edge plays arpeggiated chords) And if you listen I can't call And if you jump, you just might fall And if you shout I'll only hear you F#m E If I could stay... then the night would give you up F#m E Stay, and the day would keep its trust F#m G#m Stay with the demons you drowned A B Stay with the spirit I found F#m A E Stay and the night would be enough (Bono stops, Edge plays main riff) Three o'clock in the morning It's quiet and there's no one around Just the bang and the clatter As an angel runs to ground Just the bang and the clatter As an angel hits the ground Any comments?
