A///D///A///D/// play a couple of times...then
This should be F#m to D, but Bmin to G sounds pretty good. 8)
finaly, that little riff that the edge plays after bono sings "all I want, is
you" is just the first little riff with the ocassional sus2 chord thrown in.
hopefully i'll have time to make a better transcription of this song sometime.
it would sure help to have my guitar with me when I hear it next...
In order to play along with the song, use G, C, and Em, and capo on the
(capo 1st fret)
You say...you want....
All the promises we make
From the cradle to the grave
G C G
When All I Want Is You
(these are the same sounding chords to U2's "Numb" if you want to try a
weird cover version combining two songs)
I try to get by on Edge's riffs with something like:
The strings in the end use a G7, C, G, progression I believe.

I think U2 plays this in A, tuned down half a step. I use G because I
like the sound.
ALL I WANT IS YOU (U2)
INTRO: G (320033) C (x32010) (repeat)
For an intro riff, I alternate the second-string D and the
open G on the G chord, then the open high E and G of the C,
adding appropriate bass notes:
G (d"d" g"d" g"d" ) C (g"e" g"e" g"e" g") (repeat)
G C G C
You say you want a diamond on a ring of gold
G C G C
You say you want your story to remain untold
Em C Em C
CHORUS: All the promises we've made, from the cradle to the grave
G C G (into intro riff)
When all I want is you
You say you'll give me a highway with no one on it
Treasure just to look upon it, all the riches in the night
You say you'll give me eyes on a moon of blindness
A river in a time of dryness, a harbor in the tempest
BRIDGE: All I want is you (falsetto, over intro riff)
You way you want our love to work out right
To last with me through the night
And you say you want a diamond on a ring of gold
Your story to remain untold, your love not to grow cold
CHORUS: But all the promises we break...
BRIDGE to fade
