Miss Sarajevo guitar chords

MISS SARAJEVO
-------------
U2

Tabbed by jules 

This is a pretty simple song just 4 chords and some fills.
The chords in the archive already seem ok so I've included
them - use those and these fills here for each chord. The
song is in normal tune with a capo  on the 2nd fret. (all
the tab is relative to the capo)

           Em
Is there a time for keeping your distance
  A
A time to turn your eyes away
           Em
Is there a time for keeping your head down
   A
Forgetting all of the day
           Em
Is there a time for cold and listening
  A
A time for cutting hair
           Em
Is there a time for high street shopping
   A
To find the right dress to wear
     
         D
Here she comes (Hoooooo, hoooooo)
Em                          D
Heads turn around, here she comes
   F#m
To take her crown

Miss Sarajevo

Music by U2 and Brian Eno
Lyrics by Bono
Transcribed by Brandon Leniart 

There was another transcription of this song that was right on the money, but you need to 
tune down 1/2 step to stay in key.  Also, the film by the same name that the song comes 
from is believed to be real.  Luciano Pavarotti delivers the incredible opera vocal.

Dici che il fiume                       (it is said that a river)                         
Trova la via al mare                    (finds the way to the sea)                        
E come il fiume                         (and like the river)                             
Giungerai a me                          (you shall come to me)

dici che come fiume                     (you say that as a river)                         
Comme fiume                             (like a river)                                    
L'amore giunger, l'amore                (love shall come, love)                          
E non so piu pregare                    (and I'm not able to pray anymore)               
E nell'amore non so piu sperare         (and I cannot hope in love anymore)               
E quell'amore non so piu aspettare      (and I cannot wait for love anymore)              

           Gm

Is there a time for laying tables? 
        C

 This is my first internet tabulature transcription, but I have to give Guy
Bouchard the credit for figuring out the chords. I recently got the Passengers
MISS SARAJEVO single, so I decided to fill in the words and add a few chords
at the same time.  I had to admit, I had some problems of figuring out some of
the lyrics, so there maybe some mistakes.  Corrections?  If so, don't hesitate
to email me (paplins@ecf.toronto.edu).

    
  I'm quite anxious for the new U2 CD to come out this summer, and hopefully
U2 will tour this summer (I'll be there, of course).  Anyhow, here's the song,
and like Guy mentioned before, this song IS deep.
