Rest in in Em, and the verse repeat and so on.
Hope this is clear for you.

Gone
Music by U2
Lyrics by Bono and The Edge
Transcribed by Brandon Leniart
This song is tuned 1/2 step down and also changes keys a few times.
Another one of my personal theories is that Bono is singing this song to
himself, and he's trying to deal with his success. Just a thought.
this is actually what the riff sounds like:
     [E]                                                                        
1----------------------<5>--
2---<5>---------------------
3-------------<3>-----------
4---------------------------
5---------------------------
6---------------------------

But since I know that riff is really tough to pull off, I've arranged an
easier version to play (which is probably what Edge uses with an
octaver and/or an effect that automatically produces harmonics):
    [E]                                                                         
1----------10-----12--
2---12----------------
3---------------------
4---------------------
5---------------------
6---------------------

use these these in between lyrics in the verses:
1---x-x-x-x-x-x-
2---x-x-x-x-x-x-
3---x-x-x-x-x-x-
4---x-x-x-x-x-x-
5---x-x-x-x-x-x-
6---x-x-x-x-x-x-
1---<12>-<12>-<12>-<12>-<12>-<12>-
2---<12>-<12>-<12>-<12>-<12>-<12>-
3---<12>-<12>-<12>-<12>-<12>-<12>-
4---<12>-<12>-<12>-<12>-<12>-<12>-
5---<12>-<12>-<12>-<12>-<12>-<12>-
6---<12>-<12>-<12>-<12>-<12>-<12>-

You get to feel so guilty, got so much for so little
Then you find that feeling just won't go away
You're holding on to every little thing so tightly
Till there's nothing left for you anyway

I'll be up with the [Em]sun
[D]And not coming [Em]down
[D]I'm not coming [Em]down
[D]I'm not coming [E]down
[Em]You wanted to get somewhere so badly
You had to lose yourself along the way
You change a name, but that's OK, it's necessary
And what you leave behind you don't miss anyway
       [G]Goodbye, you can keep this [Em]suit of lights
I'll be up with the [Em]sun--[D]I'm not coming [Em]down
[D]I'm not coming [Em]down, [D]I'm not coming [E]down

And I'm [Bm]already [Em]gone
  Felt that [Bm]way all [Am]along
[D]Closer to you [G]everyday, [D]didn't want it that much [G]anyway
[Em]You're taking steps that make you feel dizzy
Then you get to like the way it feels
You hurt yourself, you hurt your lover
Then you discover what you thought was freedom was just greed
[G]Goodbye, no emotional [Em]goodnight
We'll be up with the [Em]sun
[D]Are you still holding [Em]on?
[D]I'm not coming [Em]down
[D]I'm not coming [E]down
