D G Step on a steam train, step out of the driving rain, maybe D G run from the darkness in the night, singing A C G ah, ah la la la de day A C G D G ah la la la de day, ah la la de day Sweet the sin, but bitter the taste in my mouth. I see seven towers, but I only see one way out. You got to cry without weeping, talk without speaking, scream without raising your voice, you know I took the poison, from the poison stream, then I floated out of here, singing ah, ah la la la de day ah la la la de day, ah la la de day G D G oooh, oooh, oooh D She runs through the street with her eyes painted red G under black belly of cloud in the rain D in through the doorway she brings me G D white gold and pearls, stolen from the sea, she is raging G she is raging, and the storm blows up in her eyes, she will A C G suffer the needle chill A C G D G D G D she's running to stand still ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Running To Stand Still by U2 (Zoo TV Version) Tabbed by Danny Zigman [email protected] Edge improves on the riff a bit in the concert but this is basically it. At the end of song I like to just jam on the D and G 10th (and 12th fret A) fret bar-chords avoiding the bass strings.
