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.

>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
(capo 1st fret)
You [G]say...you [C]want....
All the [Em]promises we [C]make
From the [Em]cradle to the [C]grave
When [G]All I [C]Want Is [G]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:
-3-3-3-3-3-3--0-0-0-0-0-0--- -0-0-0-0-0-0--1-1-0-1-3-1--- -0-0-2-0-2-0--0-0-0-0-0-0--- -0-0-0-0-0-0--2-2-2-2-2-2--- ---------------------------- ----------------------------
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.
ALL I WANT IS YOU (U2)
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 [G]say you [C]want a [G]diamond on a ring of [C]gold
You [G]say you [C]want your [G]story to remain un[C]told
CHORUS: All the [Em]promises we've [C]made, from the [Em]cradle to the [C]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
