A Sort of Homecoming
--------------------


Intro G6 D2 G6 D2 G6 D2 G6 D2

And you know it's time to go
 G6D2
through the sleet and driving snow
 G6D2
across the fields of mourning to a  
 G6
light's in the distance
 D2G6D4D2
And you hunger for the time
time to heal, 'Desire', time
and your earth moves beneath
your own dream landscape

 GG2GG2D2D4DGii
 Oh, ho, ho on borderland we run________
 GG2GG2
 I'll be there, I'll be there 
 D2D4DGii
tonight, a high road, a high road out of here

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

 G6D2G6D2
 O come away, o come away, o come, o come away I say I  hmm hmm
 G6D2G6D2
 O come away, o come away, o come, o come away I say I

 GG2GG2D2D4DG
 Oh, ho, ho on borderland we run, and still we run, we run and don't look back
 GG2GG2D2D4DD4
 I'll be there, I'll be there tonight    tonight      tonight  
 C7
I'll be there tonight, I believe.  I'll be there so high (land),
 DD2G6D2
I'll be there tonight, tonight____________ 

 G6D2G6D2
 O come away, I sing  I say, um ha,  o come away oh say.  
 G6D2G6D2
 G6
The wind will crack in wintertime
 D2G6
 this bomb-blast lightning waltz
 D2G6D2G6D4DGG2GG2
 no spoken words, just a scream . . . yeah.... oh........ oh.....
 D2D4DGii
tonight we'll build a bridge across the sea and land 
 GG2
 see the sky burning rain
 GG2D2D4DGiiG6D2G6D4DG6D2G6D4D
she will die and live again tonight_______                                    

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

 Capo on 1st fret
Pride (In the name of love)                      

Intro chords A A G Em

 AD
One man come in the name of love,
 GEm
One man come and go.
 AD
One come here to justify,
 GEm
One man to overthrow,
 AD
In the name of love,  
 GEm
What more in the name of love.

One man crawled on a barbed wire fence,
One man he resist.
One man washed on an empty beach.
One man betrayed with a kiss.
In the name of love,
What more in the name of love.

Early morning, April 4.
A shot rings out in the Memphis sky.
Free at last, they took your life,
But they could not take your pride.
In the name of love,
What more in the name of love.

"The Unforgettable Fire"

 DmBb
 Ice, your only rivers run cold
 DmBb
These city lights, they shine in silver and gold
 DmBbDmBbF
Dug from the night, your eyes as black as coal                       
 CEb
 Walk on by, walk on through, walk till you run
 BbDmBb
And don't look back, for here, I am          

 DmBbDm
Carnival, the wheels fly and the colors spin, through alcohol
 Bb
Red wine that punctures the skin
 DmBbF
Face to face, in a dry and waterless place    
 CEbBb
 Walk on by, walk on thorugh, so sad to besiege your love so head on

 FC
 Stay tonight, stay tonight in a lie
 EbBbF
 I'm only asking but I think you know  
 C
Come on take me away
 Gm
Come on take me away
 ADm
Come on take me home, home again

Instrumental
 BbDmBbDmBbGmA
(Now I'm at the part where the violins repeat the chords three times,
sounding like "da-Da-DA")

Dm Dm Dm (strike three times and accent each with the third the hardest)
"da-Da-DA"

 BbBbBb
"da-Da-DA"

 DmDmDm
"da-Da-DA"

 BbBbBbF
"da-Da-DA"      

 CEb
And if the mountain should crumble, or disappear into the sea
 BbF
Not a tear nor not I, stay in this time
 C
 Stay tonight, in a lie
 EbBb
 Ever after, there's love in time
 FC
And if you save it all, save your love

 GmADm
Don't push me too far, don't push me too far, tonight, tonight

******************************************************************

Promenade

 CF-C
Earth, sky, sea, and rain 
 F-C
Here she comes back again.
 F-C
Men stroll, sneak the hall
 F-C
Words that build or destroy.
 FCF-C
Dirt dry bones and stones.  

 CF-C
Barbed wire fence cut me down,
I'd like to be around.
In a spiral staircase
 AmG
to the higher ground.         
 AmG
And I like a firewall and explode.
 FC
Roman candlelightning lights up the sky.

In cracked streets, trample underfoot
Sidestep, sidewalk.
I see you stare into space.
Have I gotten closer now,
behind the face.
Tell me, will you dance with me,
and turn me around tonight.
Up though the spiral staircase to the higher ground.

See slide show, see side town,
coca-cola, football, radio radio radio . . .

Now, the chords appear below the words. I suggest you use tab riff as shown
above for the main verse, but you can always try it with the chord
formations at the end of this file to get a more acoustic feel.

If you twist and turn away.
 Asus4AAsus4ADsus2DDsus2D
If you tear yourself in two again.
 Asus4AAsus4ADsus2DDsus2D
If I could, yes I would
 Asus4AAsus4A
If I could, I would let it go.

Surren - der, dislocate.
 Asus4AAsus4ADsus2DDsus2D
 Asus4AAsus4ADsus2DDsus2D
If I could throw this lifeless
ASus4 A Asus4 A

Life- line to the wind.
 Dsus2DDsus2D
Leave this heart of clay,
 DsusDAsus4A
See you walk, walk away,
 Asus4ADsus2D
Into the night.
 DsusDAsus4A
And through the rain.
 Asus4ADsus2D
Into the half-light,
 DsusDAsus4A
And through the flame.
 Asus4ADsus2DDsus2D
If I could throw myself,
set your spirit free.
I'd lead your heart away,
See you break, break away
Into the light.
And to the day.

(Here, suggested start jamming with regular A and D chords)
Hoo, hoo Hoo, hoo Hoo, hoo.
 AD
Hoo, hoo Hoo, hoo Hoo, hoo.
 AD
To let it go,
 A
And so to fade away.
 D
To let it go,
 A
And so fade away.
 D
I'm wide awake.
 A
I'm wide awake. wide awake,
G E (Now switch back to chords from intro)

I'm not sleeping.
 Dsus2Asus4A
Oh, no, no.

If you should ask then maybe
They tell you what I would say.
True colors fly in blue and black,
Bruised silken skies and burning flag.
Colors crash, collide in blood shot eyes.
A D (Once again, regular chords now)

Hoo, hoo Hoo, hoo Hoo, hoo.
 AD
If I could, you know I would.

If I could, I would let it go.
This desparation.
Dislocation.
Separation.
Condemnation.
Revelation.
Temptation.
Isolation.
Desolation.

Let it go,
And so to fade away.
To let it go,
And so fade away.
Oh, no
I'm wide awake.
I'm wide awake.
I'm not sleeping.
Oh, no no
