[Intro]: Am G F E Am G F E
[Verse 1]:
Am G F E
Summer stretching on the grass summer dresses pass
Am G F E
In the shade of a willow tree creeps are crawling over me
Am G F E
Over me and over you stuck together with God's glue
Am G
It's going to get stickier too
F G
It's been a long hot summer... let's go undercover
F G
Don't try to hard to think... don't think at all
[Chorus 1]:
C Am
I'm not the only one staring at the sun
D F
Afraid of what you'd find if you took a look inside
C Am
Not just deaf and dumb I'm staring at the sun
D F
Not the only one who's happy to go blind
Am D Am D
[Verse 2]:
There's an insect in your ear if you scratch it won't disappear
It's gonna itch and burn and sting
Do you want to see what the scratching brings
Waves that leave me out of reach
Breaking on your back like a beach
Will you ever live in peace ?
Cause those that can't do... often have to
And those that can't do... often have to preach
[Chorus 2]:
To the ones staring at the sun
Afraid of what you'll find if you took a look inside
Not just deaf and dumb staring at the sun
I'm not the only one who'd rather go blind
Am D Am D
[Verse 3]:
Intransigence is all around military still in town
Armour plated suits and ties daddy just won't say goodbye
Referee won't blow the whistle God is good but will He listen
I'm nearly great but there's something I'm missing
I left in the... duty free
You never really... belonged to me
[Chorus 2]:
You're not the only one staring at the sun
Afraid of you'd find if you stepped back inside
I'm not sucking my thumb I'm staring at the sun
Not the only one who's happy to go blind
[Outro]: Am D Am D Am D Am D

This song is the second release from the Pop album, and is by
far the best--this is my first time to tab a song, so if there
are any errors, by all means let me know. Now let's play some
guitar:
Intro:
Am G(1) F(1) G(2) repeat 2x
G(1) is: F(1) is: G(2) is:

E---X--- E---X--- E---X---
Verse 1:
Am G F Em
summer stretches on the grass...summer dresses pass
Am G F Em
in the shade of a willow tree creeps a crawling over me
Am G F Em
over me and over you stuck together with God's glue
Am G
it's going to get stickier too
F
it's been a long hot summer
G
let's get undercover
F G
don't try too hard to think...don't think at all
Chorus:
C Am
I'm not the only one starin' at the sun
D F
afraid of what you'd find if you took a look inside
C Am
not just deaf and dumb I'm staring at the sun
D F
not the only one who's happy to go blind
Am G F Em
Verse 2 (same as verse 1)
there's an insect in your ear if you scratch it won't disappear
it's gonna itch and burn a sting
do you want to see what the scratching brings
waves that leave me out of reach
breaking on your back like a beach
will we ever live in peace?
'cause those that can't do often have to
those that can't do often have to preach
Repeat Chorus as above
Am D (Pattern 1) Am G Pattern 1:

intransigence is all around...military still in town
armour plated suits and ties...daddy just won't say goodbye
referee won't blow the whistle God is good but will he listen
I'm nearly great
but there's something I'm missing
F G
I left it in the duty free
F G
though you never really belonged to me
Repeat chorus
you're not the only one starin' at the sun
afraid of what you'd find if you stepped back inside
I'm not sucking my thumb I'm staring at the sun

You want to see what the scratching brings
Waves that leave me out of reach
Breaking on your back like a beach
Will we ever live in peace
'Cause those that can't do
Often have to
And those that can't do
Often have to preach
To the ones
Staring at the sun
Afraid of what you'll find
If you took a look inside
Not just deaf and dumb
Staring at the sun
I'm not the only one
Who'd rather go blind
Intransigence is all around
Military still in town
Armour plated suits and ties
Daddy just won't say goodbye
Referee won't blow the whistle
God is good but will He listen
I'm nearly great
But there's something missing
I left it in the duty free
But you never really belonged to me
You're not the only one
Staring at the sun
Afraid of what you'd find
If you stepped back inside
I'm not sucking on my thumb
I'm staring at the sun
Not the only one
Who's happy to go blind

Staring at the Sun by U2

This is yet another great song performed by U2. It is real easy to
play but it sounds great. To achieve almost the same sound of
distortion as
U2 uses, then you should definately us a Gibson Les Paul :).

SUMMER stretching on the grass... summer dresses pass

in the shade of a willow tree creeps a crawling over me
Am G F Em
over me and over you stuck together with God's glue
Am G
it's going to get stickier too...
F
It's been a long hot summer
G
let's get undercover
F G
don't try too hard to think... don't think at all

Chorus :

C Am
I'm not the only one starin' at the sun
D F
afraid of what you'd find if you took a look inside
C Am
not just deaf and dumb I'm staring at the sun
D F
not the only one who's happy to go blind

Am-G-F-Em

Verse 2 :

Am G F Em
there's an insect in your ear if you scratch it won't disappear
Am G
it's gonna itch and burn and sting
F Em
do you want to see what the scratching brings
Am G
waves that leave me out of reach
F Em
breaking on your back like a beach...
Am G
will we ever live in peace?
F G
'cause those that can't do often have to
F G
those that can't do often have to.. preach

Chorus :

C Am
to the ones starin' at the sun...
D F
afraid of what you'll find if you took a look inside
C Am
not just deaf and dumb... staring at the sun

I'm not the only one who'd rather go blind

Am-D-Am-G
Am-D-Am

Verse 3 :

intransigence is all around... military still in town

armour plated suits and ties... daddy just won't say goodbye

referee won't blow the whistle God is good but will HE listen

I'm nearly great
F G
but there's something I'm missing I left in the duty free
F G
though you never really belonged to me

Chorus :

C Am
you're not the only one starin' at the sun
D F
afraid of what you'd find if you stepped back inside
C Am
I'm not sucking my thumb I'm staring at the sun
D F
not the only one who's happy to go blind
