Rain guitar chords

TThese are the chords to U2's version of "Rain", 
used at some of the Popmart concerts,as the
last song performed after "One".

(In Oslo Bono sang "She's a mystery to me"...
which i believe was the  only time during the
Popmart tour.)

At the start of the song, only Bono preforms.

Tune the guitar down half a step. Also it helps if 
you play the "C" chord with your pinky
finger at the 3'th fret on the e-string.

        C                 F       G           C           F
"When the rain comes, they run and hide theire head...they might as   G        (C)
G         C             F                         C
well be dead....when the rain comes....when the rain comes........"
         C                  F    G        C           F
"When the sun shines, they slip into the shade...and sip theire 
   G      C           F                       C
lemonade....when the sun shines.....when the sun shines..........."

   C                      F
(Shiiiiiiiii-ai-ai-ai-ai-nnnn!)

"Cos i don't mind!"

(Here the rest of the band kicks in)

(Bono starts to sing with a higher voice)

          C                 F       G           C           F
"When the rain comes, they run and hide theire head...they might as  G        (C)
   G       C                 F                  C
 well be dead....when the rain comes....when the rain comes........"
         C                  F    G        C           F
"When the sun shines, they slip into the shade...and sip theire 
   G     C             F                       C
 lemonade....when the sun shines.....when the sun shines..........."


  C                      F
(Shiiiiiiiii-ai-ai-ai-ai-nnnn!)


"Cos i don't mind!"


(Here The Edge plays the solo. The only thing is that he seems 
to play a different solo each time. I've heard the song form 
Rotterdam, Leeds, and Barcelona, and each of them have a different 
solo. I like the Rotterdam solo best, but it's a bit hard to tab.
The best thing is to just play whatever you feel like...make up 
your own solo....(And don't forget to put on the white cowboy hat..:-)

      C                 F                       C
"Rai-i-i-i-i-i-ai-ai-ain.....cos i don't.....mind......."


("Amen...goodnight!")

Lyrics from the Barcelona consert.

This is a corrected version, so it should be 100%.....
