Trip through your Wires
Music by U2
Lyrics by Bono
Transcribed by Ken Chipkin, sent in by Brandon Leniart

This was one of the songs the band wasn't too thrilled 
about putting on The Joshua Tree, but Edge loved it, and 
they had to compromise--Bono got to put a bluesy harmonica 
part in. It's a fairly simple song in G.

In the distance she saw me comin' 'round

Still shakin', still in pain
You put me back to gether again
I was cold and you clothed me, honey
I was down and you lifted me, honey
Angel, angel or devil?
I was thirsty and you wet my lips

(the rest uses the above chords)
I was broken, bent out of shape
I was naked in the clothes you made
Lips were dry, throat like rust
You gave me shelter from the heat and the dust
No more water in the well
No more water, water
Angel, angel or devil?
I was thirsty, and you wet my lips
You, I'm waiting for you
You, you set my desire
I trip through your wires
Whoa!
Yeah
All I need 
All I need...
Thunder, thunder on the mountain
There's a rain cloud in the desert sky
In the distance, she saw me comin' out
I was callin' out, I was callin' out

In the distance
G            F9   C9
She saw me coming round
      G              F9   C9
I was calling out
      G              F9   C9
I was calling out

Still shaking, still in pain
You put me back together again
I was cold and you clothed me honey
I was down and you lifted me honey

Angel, angel or devil
I was thirsty
And you wet my lips

C                    G
You, I'm waiting for you
Bb                F/C
You, you set my desire
 C                  G
I trip through your wires


I was broken, bent out of shape
I was naked in the clothes you made
My lips were dry, throat like rust
You gave me shelter
From the heat and the dust
There's no more water in the well
No more water in the well

Angel, angel or devil
I was thirsty
And you wet my lips

You, I'm waiting for you
You, you set my desire
I trip through your wires


Thunder, thunder on the mountain
There's a raincloud in the desert sky

In the distance, she saw me coming round
I was calling out, I was calling out
