Running To Stand Still
Music U2
Words Bono

Intro: D, G

D                                G    
And so she woke up, woke up from where she was lying still, said
D                                 G
I got to do something about where we're going.
D                      G
Step on a steam train, step out of the driving rain, maybe
D                              G
Run from the darkness in the night, singin'

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

D                             G
Sweet the sin, but bitter the taste in my mouth.
D                                 G
I see seven towers, but I only see one way out.
           D
You got to cry without weeping, talk without speaking,
G                                                      D
Scream without raising your voice, you know I took the poison,
                               G
From the poison stream, then I floated out of here, singin'

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

 G      D     G
Oooh, Oooh, Oooh

D
She walks through the streets 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 golden 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
She's running to stand . . . still

Out: D, G (5 times to fade)

Tabbed by Danny Zigman

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.

Tuned down 1 semi-tone (half-step)
