Bullet The Blue Sky  U2

[Dm]      [C]   
[Dm]In the howling wind[C]    [Dm]comes a stinging rain[C]
[Dm]See it driving nails[C]   into the [Dm]souls on a tree of pain[C]
[Dm]From the firefly[C]    a [Dm]red-orange glow
[Dm]I see the face of fear[C]
Running [Dm]scared in the valley below

[Dm]Bullet the blue sky[C]
[Dm]Bullet the blue sky[C]

[Dm]In locust wind[C]       [Dm]comes a rattle and hum[C]
[Dm]Jacob wrestled the angel[C]
And the [Dm]angel was overcome[C]
[Dm]She had a demon seed[C]
[Dm]She rase flower of fire[C]
[Dm]I see her burning crosses[C]
[Dm]I see the flames higher and higher[C]
[Dm]Bullet the blue sky[C]
[Dm]Bullet the blue sky[C]
[Dm]And I see her come up to me[C]
Her [Dm]dress red
Like a rose on a thorn bush[C]
[Dm]Like all the colors of a royal flush[C]
[Dm]And she's pealing off those dollar bills[C]
[Dm]slapping them down[C]
[Dm]One hundred[C]
[Dm]Two hundred[C]
[Dm]And I can see those fighter planes[C]
[Dm]And I can see those fighter planes[C]
[Dm]Across the mud huts where the children sleep[C]
[Dm]Through the alleys and quiet city streets[C]
[Dm]Up a staircase to the first floor[C]
[Dm]I turn the key and slowly unlock the door[C]
A [Dm]man breathes into a saxophone[C]
[Dm]Through the walls we hear the city groan[C]
[Dm]Outside it's America[C]
[Dm]Outside it's America[C]
[Dm]"So I'm back in my hotel room,[C]
[Dm]With Johnnie Coltrane and the love supreme,[C]
[Dm]In the next room I hear some woman scream out,[C]
[Dm]That her lover's turning off,[C]
[Dm]Turning on the television,[C]
[Dm]I can't tell the difference between [C]
[Dm]ABC news, Hill Street Blues[C]
[Dm]And some preacher in the old time gospel hour[C]
[Dm]Stealing money from the sick and the old[C]
[Dm]Well the God I believe in ain't short of cash Mister [C]
[Dm]See across the view[C]
[Dm]See the sky ripped open[C]
See the [Dm]rain pounding the women and children[C]
[Dm]Who run
Into the [C]arms of [Dm]America......

It's Jacob who wrestled the angel, not Judith. It's in the Bible.
