Bass intro then

E-------------------------------------------------
b-------------------------------------------------
g-------------------------------------------------
d-----------------17--17--17(With Piitch shifter)-
a-------------------------------------------------
e-------------------------------------------------


Listen to the song to get the shift right
Then edge mutes all the strings continously and shifts the pitch.

Then when Bono sings
Bubble poppin sgar droppin etc:

E-------------------------------------------------
b-------------------------------------------------
g-------------------------------------------------
d-------------------------------------------------
a--0--0--3--5-----------------------3-------------
e--------------0--0--3--5-----3--5-----5--3--5----

E-------------------------------------------------
b-------------------------------------------------
g-------------------------------------------------
d-------------------------------------------------
a--------3----------------------------------------
e--3--5-----5--3--5-------------------------------

repeat

then after the pitch is shifted again:

e------12-----12-----12-----12-----14----14--14---9---9----
b--10-----10-----10-----10-----10----------------10--10----

He then varies on these for the rest of the song!

Email me with any changes.

Lookin' for to save my, save my soul
Lookin' for the places where no flowers grow
Lookin' for to fill that GOD shaped hole
Mother mother sucking rock and roll
Holy dunc, spacejunk comin'in for the spash
(been around the back...been around the front)
White dopes on punk staring into the flash
Lookin' for baby Jesus under the trash
Mother mother sucking rock and rooll
Mother..rock and roll
    
    Am

Am           G
Mother, am I still your son?

              F                 Am
You know I've waited so long to hear you say so

Am                   G
Mother, you left and made me someone

                F                 Am
Now I'm still a child, but no one tells me "no"

Lookin' for a sound that's gonna drown out the world
Lookin' for the father of my two little girls
Got the swing, got the sway, got my straw in lemonade
Still looking for the face I had before I was made
Mother mother sucking rock and roll
Bubble poppin' sugar droppin' rock and roll

Woo me sister
Move me brother 
Soothe me mother
Rule me father
Show me mother
