Am      Em         F      F(2)       Am     Em         F        F(2)
All my life, I worshipped her, Her golden voice, her beauty's beat.

        Am      Em            F       F(2)    
How she made us feel, how she made me real,

           F                Em
And the ground beneath her feet. 

           F                F(2)
And the ground beneath her feet. 

          Am       Em        F+F(2)             Am   Em      F     F(2)
And now I can't be sure of anything, black is white, and cold is heat;

For what I worshipped stole my love away, it was the ground beneath her feet. 

            F                  F(2)
It was the ground beneath her feet.

Am   Em             F         F(2)   Am  Em     F+F(2)
Go lightly down your darkened way, go lightly underground,

Am      Em            F       F(2)          F                 Em (Pick each string)
I'll be down there in another day, I won't rest until you're found. 

Am          Em         F        F(2)     Am          Em          F     F(2)

F#m           F(2)                F
Let me love you, let me rescue you, let me bring you where two roads meet.

F#m             F(2)                  F     Em            F     Em             F       Em        Am
O come back above, where there's only love......only lo(o-oh-oh)ve.....only lo(o-oh-oh)ve...only love......

Em     F     F(2) Am    Em    F  F(2)     Am
............only love................only love........."Alright, The Edge?"



This is the way the song ends in the Italy-show version. Just end on the Am-chord.


I am horrible at tabbing, but you should be able to figure at least some parts out! :c)


Corrections, criticism (is this the way you write it?), or kind words? Send them to: jonivar@kolstad.no


Hope you can enjoy the tab!


Best regards, Jon

a phaser and a 120 ms delay
