The Refugee
U2 version, from "War" (1983)
I should mention this sounds best on a guitar tuned down half a step, with a lot of nice, clean, Edge distortion and some small echo or reverb. My crap Venom amp works great for this song.
Chords: C (3), B, C
C (3): 3 3 5 5 5 3
B: 1 1 3 3 3 1
C: x 3 2 0 1 0
There are "power-chord" versions of C and B here, too, used in the verse. I'll call it Riff 1 for the hell of it.
(C) (B)
Riff 1: 1 1 3 x x x slide up to 3 3 5 x x x
(C) (Play parentheses palm-muted, then hit the chords and slide)
E-x------------------------------------------
B-x------------------------------------------
G-x------------------------------------------
D--3->5--------------(3)-(3)-(3)-3->5---------
A--1->3--------------(1)-(1)-(1)-1->3---------
E --1->3--------------(1)-(1)-(1)-1->3---------
It's MUCH easier than I make it sound... listen to the disc (get the UltraDisc version! :>)
Got it? Play it at the verses, where I've indicated R1.
Bridge:
(C) (C) (B) (C)
E----------------------------------
B--5-----5--5-5->3-3-->1----------
G-----5-----5-5->3-3---0----------
D-----------5-5->3-3-->2----------
A----------------------3----------
E---------------------------------
Easy, just play the barred C chord arpeggiated, hit the chord, slide down to B, hit it twice, then quickly switch to the regular C chord. I wish I could make it sound as simple on paper as it really is...
Here's the lyrics and the chords to go with them. * chords mean you don't have to play them if you don't want to, it sounds good either way. The album is w/out them.
