Silver And Gold  U2

------







[Intro] 

[E]  [Verse] 
[E]In the shit house, a shotgun
Praying hands hold me down
Only the hunter was hunted
In this tin can town, tin can town
No stars in the black night
Looks like the sky fall down
No sun in the daylight
Looks like it's chained to the ground, chained to the ground.
[Cborus] 
[E]   The warden said,
"The [A]exit is sold,"
If you [B]want a way out[E]
E A E A(XII) E A(XII) E A(XII) E
Silver and gold.
[E]   Broken back to the ceiling[A] [E]
A(XII) E
Broken nose to the floor
I scream at the sounds, it's coming[A] [E]
A(XII) E
Crawls under the door
There's a rope around my neck and [A]there's a[E]
A(XII) E
Trigger in your gun
Jesus say something![A] [E]
A(XII) E
I am someone! I am someone!
A E A(XII)
I am someone!
[E]   Captains and kings [A]in the slave ships hold
They [B]came to collect[E]
Silver and gold
Silver and gold

Silver and gold.
[Spoken] 
"Yep. Silver and gold.
This song was written in a hotel room in New York City.
Right about the time a friend of ours, little Steven,
Was pulling together a record of artists against Apartheid.
It's a song written about a man, in a shanty town outside of Johannesburg.
A man who's sick of looking down the barrel of White South Africa.
A man at the point where he is ready to take up arms against his oppressor.
A man who's lost faith in the peace makers of the West.
While they argue and while they fail to support a man like Bishop Tutu.
And his request for economic sanctions against South Africa.
Am I bugging you? I don't mean to bug ya'.
Okay Edge, play the blues."
