A Sort Of Homecoming  U2


        [G6]                     [D2]        
through the sleet and driving snow
                 [G6]                  [D2]  
across the fields of mourning to a
light's in [G6]the distance
[D2]               [G6]         [D4]   [D2]          
And you hunger for the time
        [G6]                    [D2]         
time to heal, 'Desire', time
        [G6]                    [D2]         
and your earth moves beneath
         [G6]                   [D2]         
your own dream landscape
         [G6]          [D2]                  
Oh, ho, ho on borderland we run________
[G]       [G2]   [G]    [G2]              [D2]   [D4]   [D]  [Gii] 
I'll be there, I'll be there
[G]              [G2]     [G]         [G2]         
tonight, a high road, a high road out of here
       [D2]    [D4]             [D]            [Gii] 
the city walls are all come down
the dust a smoke screen all around to see
faces ploughed like fields that once
gave no resistance

And we live by the side of the road
on the side of a hill as the valleys explode
dislocated, suffocated
the land grows weary of it's own

O come away, o come away, o come, o come away I say I hmm hmm
[G6]                   [D2]             [G6]    [D2] 
O come away, o come away, o come, o come away I say I
[G6]                   [D2]             [G6]    [D2] 
Oh, ho, ho on borderland we run, and still we run, we run and don't look back
[G]       [G2]   [G]    [G2]              [D2]        [D4] [D] [G] 
I'll be there, I'll be there tonight tonight tonight
[G]              [G2]     [G]         [G2]        [D2] [D4] [D] [D4] 
I'll be there tonight, I believe. I'll be there so high (land),
I'll be there tonight, tonight____________
                         [D]      [D2]     [G6] [D2] 
O come away, I sing I say, um ha, o come away oh say.
[G6]                  [D2]                  [G6] [D2] 
The wind will crack in wintertime
this bomb-blast lightning waltz
[D2]                [G6]                     
no spoken words, just a scream . . . yeah.... oh........ oh.....
[D2]          [G6]              [D2]    [G6]        [D4] [D] [G] [G2] [G] [G2] 
tonight we'll build a bridge across the sea and land
  [D2]            [D4]                [D]      [Gii] 
see the sky burning rain
[G]               [G2]                      
she will die and live again tonight_______
   [G]              [G2]             [D2]    [D4]  [D] [Gii] [G6] [D2] [G6] [D4] [D] [G6] [D2] [G6] [D4] [D] 
And you heart beats so slow
through the rain and fallen snow
across the fields of morning
to a light that's in the distance
Oh don't sorrow, no don't weep
for tonight, at last
I am coming home
I am coming home
