> > >with thumb...

>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
first fret....

(capo 1st fret)

You say...you want....
Em C
All the promises we make
Em C
From the cradle to the grave
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.


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)

You say you want a diamond on a ring of gold
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
