Fire
Music by U2 Lyrics by Bono Copyright 1981 Transcribed by Brandon Leniart
Tune down 1/2 step, use the bridge pickup, and it helps if you have a little delay.
Intro and verse:
1----------------------------------------- 2----------------------------------------- 3----------------------------------------- 4---2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0- 5----------------------------------------- 6-----------------------------------------
1----------------------------------------- 2----------------------------------------- 3----------------------------------------- 4---5-5-5-4-4-4-2-2-2-0-0-0--------------- 5----------------------------------------- 6-----------------------------------------
Here are a few of the many fills in the verse part:
1---12/15-- 2---------- 3---------- 4---------- 5---------- 6----------
1---15/17-- 2---------- 3---------- 4---------- 5---------- 6----------
1---3--3-- 2---3--3-- 3---0--0-- 4---0--0-- 5---2--2-- 6---3--3--
Falling, falling The sun is burning black Falling, falling It's beating on my back
Chorus:
1------------------------------------------------------------ 2------------------------------------------------------------ 3-------------------------------------------------------5\--- 4------------------------------------------------------------ 5---3---2---------------------------------------------------- 6------------------------------------------------------------
1------------------------------------------------------------ 2------------------------------------------------------------ 3-------------------------------------------------------5\--- 4------------------------------------------------------------ 5------------------------------------------------------------ 6---2---3--2-------------------------------------------------
1-----------------------------------------------17-----17\--- (1st time 2------------------------------------------------------------ hit 2 17th 3------------------------------------------------------------ frets, 2nd 4------------------------------------------------------------ time hit 1 5---2/------------------------------------------------------- 17th then 1 6------------------------------------------------------------ 15th instead)
With a fire Oh oh oh oh With a fire Oh oh oh oh
Falling, falling The moon is running red Falling, falling It's pulling me instead
With a fire Oh oh oh oh Fire Oh oh oh oh
1---------------------- 2---12--12--12--12--12- 3---12--12--12--12--12- 4---12--12--12--12--12- 5---------------------- 6----------------------
But there's a fire inside When I'm falling over There's a fire in me
(natural harmonics)
1-------------------------------------<12>--<12>--<12>-- 2---<12>--<12>--<12>------------------------------------ 3------------------------------------------------------- 4------------------------------------------------------- 5------------------------------------------------------- 6-------------------------------------------------------
1---<15>--<15>--<15>--<12>--<12>--<12>-- 2--------------------------------------- 3--------------------------------------- 4--------------------------------------- 5--------------------------------------- 6---------------------------------------
When I call out I feel some fire I'm going home
(slightly audible fills used throughout song)
1------------------- 3------------------- 4---5---4---2------- 5------------------- 6-------------------
1-------------- 2-------------- 3-------------- 4---12--11--9-- 5-------------- 6--------------
Falling, falling The stars are falling down Falling, falling They knock me to the ground
With a fire Oh oh oh oh Fire Oh oh oh oh
