U2 tabs

Hawkmoon 269 guitar chords

HAKWMOON 269
------------
U2

I though this great U2 song deserved a proper transcription. 
I have two versions of this song the album version (in B) and the live 
version (in G). They are BOTH tuned down half a step.

First the album version, there's two guitars Gtr. 1 playing
mainly two chords: B and Badd4. Keep playing these for the majority
of the song changing to A and E for the "as the room spins around"
bit:

Gtr. 1 (Strum fast)
E---7--7-----7--7----|---5--5-----0--0---
B---7--7-----7--7----|---5--5-----0--0---
G---8--8-----8--8----|---6--6-----1--1---
D---9--9-----9--9----|---7--7-----2--2---
A---9--9-----7--7----|---7--7-----2--2---
E---7--7-----7--7----|---5--5-----0--0---

While Gtr. 1 plays on a second guitar plays the following:

Gtr. 2 (Strum slow)
E---7--7--7----7----7--7--7----7-7-7------------------------------------
B---7--7--7----9----10-10-10---9-9-9------------------------------------
G---8--8--8----9----9--9--9----9-9-9------------------------------------
D---9--9--9----9----9--9--9----9-9-9------------------------------------
A---9--9--9----7----7--7--7----7-7-7------------------------------------
E---7--7--7-------------------------------------------------------------

That's about all there is to the album version apart from the 'solo':

Gtr. 2
E--------------------------------
B---9b(10)-hold-(10)-r9--9--7----
G--------------------------------
D--------------------------------
A--------------------------------
E--------------------------------


The live version can be found on the Lovetown documentary and various 
bootlegs. It has a slide guitar intro but the rhythm is similar to the 
album, it's in G though (tuned down half step). When playing the intro
Edge keeps alternately picking the B and G strings quite fast so this 
is just a guide. The brackets () mean don't re-pick, just hold the note:

Edge: (w/ slide)
E-----------------------------------------------------------------------
B-----3----3----3----3/(8)---8/(12)----12/(13)----13\(8)----8\(3)---3---
G--0-----0----0----0-------0---------0----------0---------0-------0-----

Then this:

Edge: (w/ slide)
E-----------------------------------------------------------------------
B----3----3----3/(8)----8/(12)---12/13----13----13----13/15--13\12---12-
G-0----0----0--------0--------0--------0-----0-----0--------------------

E-----------------------------------------------------------------------
B--12/13---12\(10)---10\(8)---8\(6)---5/(6)---5---1/3-------------------
G-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Bono plays the second guitar strumming G and Gadd4 chords, and F and C
for
"as the room spins around" bit:

Bono:
E----3--3----3--3---|---1--1----3--3------
B----3--3----3--3---|---1--1----5--5------
G----4--4----4--4---|---2--2----5--5------
D----5--5----5--5---|---3--3----5--5------
A----5--5----3--3---|---3--3----3--3------
E----3--3----3--3---|---1--1--------------

Edge plays some stuff with the slide including:

Edge:  (slow slide here)        (fast slide here)
E-----------------------------------------------------------------------
B------3\(1)-(1)-(1)/(3)--------1/(3)--1/(3)--1/(3)--etc.---------------
G-----------------------------------------------------------------------


Edge: (w/ slide)
E-----------------------------------------------------------------------
B----3--5/(6)---5---1---1/(5)\(3)---2-----------1---0-------------------
G---------------------------------------2---2---------------------------

He then plays some arpeggio chords followed by the solo:

Edge:
E-----12--13--12--13-13--12--13--12--10--10-----------------------------
B-----------------------------------------------------------------------
G-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Apart from some more arpeggio stuff that's about it. Please send any
corrections
or improvements to the archive, cheers.

Ooooooooo ooo I need your love		(I need your love)
  
         A        D
When the night has no end
        A         D
And the day yet to begin
       A                G-D
As the room spins around
            A                        D
I need your love  	I need your love

(Verses and chorus continue as above)

 TAB for what Edge plays:
(Lots of whammy bar   / = slide down)
  E--4-4-4--4/3-3---/1---------------

Like a Phoenix rising needs a holy tree
Like the sweet revenge of a bitter enemy
I need your love        (I need your love)
  					
Like the heat needs the sun, like honey on her tongue
Like the muzzle of a gun, like oxygen
I need your love	(I need your love)
I need your love	(I need your love)
I need your love	(I need your love)
  
When the night has no end
And the day yet to begin
As the room spins around
I need your love		I need your love         Hey!
I need your love	(I need your love)
I need your love	(I need your love)
I need your love	(I need your love)
(I need your love)	(I need your love) 

Like thunder needs rain, like a preacher needs pain
Like tongues of flame, like a sweet stain
I need your love        I need your love
Like a needle needs a vein, like someone to blame
Like a thought unchained, like a runaway train
I need your love	 I need your love 	I need your love
I need your love	       I need your love     (I need your love)
I need your love	 (I need your love) 	Ow!

Like faith needs a doubt, like a freeway out
I need your love
Like powder needs a spark, like lies need the dark
I need your love            

(Repeat the following at least 9 times:)
                    A                                 D
In the heart of the beat of love   In the heart of the beat of love
