Elevation

U2

 U2
Tom: A
		
Album: All That You Can't Leave Behind
Transcribed by: Stephanie van der Linde


Note: The Edge seems to be using a lot of different distortion effects through most of the song.  I've tried to match them as best as I can:  Guitar #1 requires the gain and bass buttons on your amp to be turned all the way up (10), and the treble button to be turned all the way down.  Guitar #2 requires the gain, treble, and bass to all be turned up to 10.

Intro

Play riff 1 seven times, then (Bono singing "Ooh!") play riff 2 along with riff 1 seven times.

Lyrics:

Intro

Yeah, yeah

Ooh!    

Verse 1

High, higher than the sun
You shoot me from a gun
I need you to elevate me here
At the corner of your lips
As the orbit of your hips
Eclipse
You elevate my soul

Chorus

I've got no self-control
Been living like a mole now
Going down, 
Excavation
I and I, in the sky
You make me feel like I can fly,
So high
El-e-vation

Verse 2

A star, lit up like a cigar
Strung out like a guitar
Maybe you could educate my mind
Explain all these controls
I can't sing but I've got soul
The goal,
Is elevation

Chorus

A mole, diggin' in a hole
Digging up my soul now
Going down
Excavation
I and I, in the sky
You make me feel like I can fly,
So high
El-e-vation

Bridge lead in

Ooh! 

Bridge

Love, lift me up out of these blues
Won't you tell me something true
I believe in you

Chorus

A mole, diggin' in a hole
Digging up my soul now
Going down excavation
I and I, in the sky
You make me feel like I can fly
So high
El-e-vation

Outro

Ooh!
Ooh!
Hoo hoo!
Ooh!
Ooh!
Ooh!
Ooh!
