D* = 5

(thanks to U2SJ and Axver for the pre-lyrics)

U2 - MERCY


D D A D D* D (x 4)

D
I was drinking some wine
Bm
And it turned to blood
D
What's the use of religion
Bm
If you're any good?


D
I know I'm weed killer, honey
Bm
And you're sugar
D
If you're the prosecution
Bm
I get away with murder


D
If you were ice
A D D* D
I'm water
D
And with your telescope
A D D* D
I can see further


D
We're binary code
A D D* D
A one and a zero
D
You wanted violins
G
And you got Nero



D
You're gravity
Bm
Searching for the ground
D
You're silence
G
Searching for a sound


D
Your heart is aching
Bm
Your heart is my home
D
It's fascinating
Bm
I know I'll never be alone


E
But I'm ripping the stitches
G
You got 2 hands to rub
E
I'm digging the ditches
G
Of someone elses love


D
Love hears when I lie
A
Love puts the blue back in my eye
G
Love will come again
E
I'll be gone again...
D
Again


Bm


D
If you're hunger
Bm
Baby, let me feed it
D
If your heart is full
Bm
Baby, let me bleed it


D
And happiness is for
A D D* D
Those who don't really need it
D A D D* D
You love me... too much
D A D D* D
You always loved me... too much


E
When I was ripping the stitches
G
We’ve got 2 fists to rub
E
I'm diggin for ditches
G
Of someone else's luck


D
Love hears when I lie
A
Love puts the blue back in my eye
G
Love has come again
E
I am gone again


D
Love's got to be with the weak
A
Only then love gets a chance to speak
G
Love will come again
E
I'll be gone again...
D
Again


D D* A Bm


D A Bm
I... I can't escape myself
D D* A Bm
I hear you talk
G
Feeling nothing
E
I feel nothing
D Bm
Feel....

G
I hear someone
E
Feel nothing
D
I hear someone
Bm G E
Feel... nothing


D A

G
Love has come again
E
I am gone again

D
Love is the end
Of history
A
The end of me
Of misery
G
Love has come again
E
I am gone again

D
Love is justice
A charity
A
Love brings with it a clarity
G
Love is come again
E
I'm alive again
D
Alive...

D D* A Bm

D
I am alive
D* A Bm
Baby I'm born again
D
And again
D* A
And again
Bm D
And again and again and again...

Again

This isn't quite a standard tab, but I think you can gather most of the song from this....

Edge's distorted riff that plays throughout

E-12---12---12---12------
B----15---15---15---15---

Then his verse riff goes like this

E---- 5-------------------------
B-7-------5---7----------------
G-----------------6---7--------

I'm a litte unsure about the pre-chorus part, the "ripping the stitches part"

E---------------------------------------------------
B-7---5--------------------7----5-----------------
G---------7------4--7--4-----------7-------------

Then the chorus goes like this

E---------5------------7--5----------5----------7--5---
B----------------------------------------------------------
G-6-6-7-----6-6-7----------7-7-6-----6-6-7---------

Then the little riff after the second chorus is this (slide up from 5)

big E-10--9--5--7

That's about all I can figure out, just add a good delay and that should be pretty close.

Thanks much D-Bot. I've been waiting a while for this. It's a pretty simple song but I'm a newbie guitar player so I couldn't figure it out. Thanks again!
