 U2, "Staring at the sun", from album "Pop"
--------------------------------------------

[Intro]:  Am  G  F  E     Am  G  F  E


[Verse 1]:
Am                G            F              E
Summer stretching on the grass summer dresses pass
Am                G           F                   E
In the shade of a willow tree creeps are crawling over me
Am          G        F              E
Over me and over you stuck together with God's glue
Am                G
It's going to get stickier too
F                                       G
It's been a long hot summer... let's go undercover
      F                                      G
Don't try to hard to think... don't think at all


[Chorus 1]:
                 C                  Am
I'm not the only one staring at the sun
                     D                         F
Afraid of what you'd find if you took a look inside
                  C                       Am
Not just deaf and dumb I'm staring at the sun
             D                     F
Not the only one who's happy to go blind

Am  D   Am  D


[Verse 2]:

There's an insect in your ear if you scratch it won't disappear
It's gonna itch and burn and sting
Do you want to see what the scratching brings
Waves that leave me out of reach
Breaking on your back like a beach
Will you ever live in peace ?
Cause those that can't do... often have to
And those that can't do... often have to preach


[Chorus 2]:

To the ones staring at the sun
Afraid of what you'll find if you took a look inside
Not just deaf and dumb staring at the sun
I'm not the only one who'd rather go blind

Am  D   Am  D


[Verse 3]:

Intransigence is all around military still in town
Armour plated suits and ties daddy just won't say goodbye
Referee won't blow the whistle God is good but will He listen
I'm nearly great but there's something I'm missing 
I left in the... duty free
You never really... belonged to me


[Chorus 2]:

You're not the only one staring at the sun
Afraid of you'd find if you stepped back inside
I'm not sucking my thumb I'm staring at the sun
Not the only one who's happy to go blind


[Outro]:  Am  D   Am  D    Am  D   Am  D

Staring at the Sun by U2 from the Album POP ----------------- transcribed by | Billy R. Waller | ----------------- This is yet another great song performed by U2. It is real easy to play but it sounds great. To achieve almost the same sound of distortion as U2 uses, then you should definately us a Gibson Les Paul :). chords used:

F It's been a long hot summer G let's get undercover F G don't try too hard to think... don't think at all Chorus : C Am I'm not the only one starin' at the sun D F afraid of what you'd find if you took a look inside C Am not just deaf and dumb I'm staring at the sun D F not the only one who's happy to go blind Am-G-F-Em Verse 2 : Am G F Em there's an insect in your ear if you scratch it won't disappear Am G it's gonna itch and burn and sting F Em do you want to see what the scratching brings Am G waves that leave me out of reach F Em breaking on your back like a beach... Am G will we ever live in peace? F G 'cause those that can't do often have to F G those that can't do often have to.. preach Chorus : C Am to the ones starin' at the sun... D F afraid of what you'll find if you took a look inside C Am not just deaf and dumb... staring at the sun D F I'm not the only one who'd rather go blind Am-D-Am-G Am-D-Am Verse 3 : intransigence is all around... military still in town armour plated suits and ties... daddy just won't say goodbye referee won't blow the whistle God is good but will HE listen I'm nearly great F G but there's something I'm missing I left in the duty free F G though you never really belonged to me Chorus : C Am you're not the only one starin' at the sun D F afraid of what you'd find if you stepped back inside C Am I'm not sucking my thumb I'm staring at the sun D F not the only one who's happy to go blind
