Silver And Gold

U2

 E
 E
 In the shit house, a shotgun
 E
 Praying hands hold me down
 E
 Only the hunter was hunted
 E
 In this tin can town, tin can town
 E
 No stars in the black night
 E
 Looks like the sky fall down
 E
 No sun in the daylight
 E
 Looks like it's chained to the ground, chained to the ground.

 E
    The warden said,
 A
"The exit is sold,"
 BE
If you want a way out
Silver and gold.
 EAE
    Broken back to the ceiling 
 EAE
 Broken nose to the floor 
 AE
I scream at the sounds, it's coming 
 EAE
 Crawls under the door 
 AE
There's a rope around my neck and there's a
 EAE
 Trigger in your gun 
 AE
Jesus say something! 
 E
 I am someone! I am someone!
 E
 I am someone!
 EA
    Captains and kings in the slave ships hold
 BE
They came to collect
 E
 Silver and gold
 E
 Silver and gold

 E
 Seen them coming and going
 E
 Seen them captains and the kings
 E
 Seen them navy blue uniforms
 E
 Seen them bright and shiny things, bright shiny things, yeah!
 EAE
 The temperature is rising 
 AE
The fever white hot 
 EAE
 Mister I ain't got nothing         But it's
 AE
More than you've got 
 EAE
 Chains no longer bind me 
 AE
Nor the shackles at my feet 
 EAE
 Outside are the prisoners 
 AE
Inside the free, set them free

 EAE
 Set them free 
 EA
    A prize fighter in a corner is told
 BE
 Hit where it hurts -- silver and gold
Silver and gold.

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