Spanish Eyes by U2
                Transcribed by Richard Zangoli (rzangoli@magna.com.au)
This is my interpretation to the song. It is not hugely different to what 
is already on the Archive but I think it corrects a couple of mistakes.

For the intro in the album version Edge ad libs with this riff-

E---------------------------------------------------------
B----------15----------15-----------13-----------------13-
G----14----------14-----------14---------------14---------


E---15---------------------
B---------13-----------13---    etc..
G----------------14----------

The verse chords are Dm and G and are played something like this-

E---1---1---0h1---0---1--1--1--0h1--1--1---
B---3---3---3-3---3---3--3--3--3-3--3--3---
G---2---2---2-2---2---2--2--2--2-2--2--2---
D---0---0---0-0---0---0--0--0--0-0--0--0----
A---0---0---0-0---0---0--0--0--0-0--0--0---
E---0---0---0-0---0---0--0--0--0-0--0--0---


E--3--3--3----3----3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3
B--3--3--3-3--3--3-3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3
G--0--0--0-0--0--0-0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0
D--0--0--0-0--0--0-0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0
A--2--2--2-2--2--2-2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2
E--3--3--3-3--3--3-3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3


The chords for the chorus are F, C, Am and Em. In the live
version of this song Edge plays them arpeggio, something like
this-


F
Our                   love                  shines     like

E----------------1--------------1--------------1-----------
B-------1--------------1-------------1--------------1------
G-----------2---------------2-------------2--------------2---
D----3------------------------------------------------------



C

E-------------0-----------0-----------0------------0-------

Now putting it together,

Intro riff-
Dm                G
Wey hey hey, baby hang on
Wey hey hey, baby hang on
Empty heart, beat tight as a drum stick
Empty love, she'll shine like a song
Wey hey hey, baby hang on

F                      C
Our love shines like rain
            Am
With those Spanish eyes
        Em
Spanish eyes


Dm                G
Wey hey hey, here she comes
Comes in colours
Know she's gonna turn the daylight on
Because I love the way you talk to me
And I love the way you walk to me
And I need you more than you need me, yeah

F                      C
Our love shines like rain
         Am
In those Spanish eyes
        Em
Spanish eyes

F                          C
I'd cross the world for green and gold
               Am                     Em
But it's those Spanish eyes that get me home
Home again


Dm            G
Hey hey, baby hang on
Wey hey hey, you know that the night is young
Dazzled by lights that shine in your eyes
I'm standing in the shadows & wait for the night
Forever in fever, forever in heat
You pick me up, don't put me out on the street
Wey hey hey, baby hang on
Wey hey hey, baby hang on
Because I love the way you talk to me
And I love the way you're mean to me
And I need you
 

Before I go I'd like to thank Nathan for setting up and maintaining
the Archive and on a personal note - thanks to Jen for appreciating
my poetry when nobody else would.
