In God's Country tabbed by: James Weber 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 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( U2 live version)-Transcribed by Richard Zangoli I saw the transcription to this song on the Archive and could tell that most of it was taken from the Joshua Tree songbook which is OK because the transcriptions in that book are pretty good. Well, anyway I prefer playing the live version that appears on the Rattle and Hum video which varies a little from the album version. So anyway, here it is. I think this version is tuned down half a step. Before playing the intro play some mute strings and sound some fifth and the seventh fret harmonics or something like that. The intro- E--17--17--17--17---15--15--15--15---15--15--15--15-- B--15--15--15--15---13--13--13--13---12--12--12--12-- G--14--14--14--14---12--12--12--12---12--12--12--12-- play this a few times D------------------------------------------------------------ A------------------------------------------------------------- E------------------------------------------------------------- The chord for the verses are D and Am and in the live version Edge plays open chords and mutes them as well at different times. You might want to play around with these chords as I think Edge does. For example, you could try- E--2--2--2--0--2----0--0--0--0--0----- B--3--3--3--3--3----1--1--1--3--1---- G--2--2--2--2--2----2--2--2--2--2---- D--0--0--0--0--0----2--2--2--2--2---- A-------------------0--0--0--0--0---- E---------------------------------------- The chords for the chorus are Em G D three times and then C G D. Just before the solo this is played- D--------------0----------- A----3--2--0------3--2--0 E------------------------- I wont tab the solo because its similar to the album version, so I think it's already been put on the archive. After the solo, when you go back to the final verse play the D and Am chords again, but loudly this time and not muted at all. After playing them a few times play something like- E--------------------------------------------------------------------------- B---15--15--15--15---13--13--13--13--13--12--12--12--13--13--13 -- G---14--14--14--14---12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--- play this a D-------------------------------------------------------------- couple of times Then finish off with the intro riff a few times. The final chord is a D. I don't think that this last bit above is exactly how Edge plays it but its seems sort of close and sounds quite good in any case. That should have all the guitar parts. Enjoy.

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
