Walk On

U2

 

Dm       C                           G (x2)
And love is not the easy thing the only baggage that you can bring. 
Dm                               C
And love is not the easy thing the only baggage you can bring is    
G (x2)
All that you can't leave behind

 

(w/ Riff 1:)

D  A  G  Em

D  A  G  E

 

D               A                   G            Em

And if the darkness is to keep us apart

D               A                         G                 Em

And if the daylight feels like it's a long way off

D         A                                  G                     Em                    D

And if your glass heart should crack, and for a second you turn back

      A           E (x2)

Oh no, be strong

 

CHORUS 1:   (w/ Riff 1)

D            A

Walk on, walk on

              G

What you got, they can't steal it

        Em

No they can't even feel it

D            A

Walk on, walk on

G              E

Stay safe tonight

 

D                        A                   G                            Em

You're packing a suitcase for a place, none of us has been

D                     A                   G            Em

A place that has to be believed  to be seen

D                        A                   G                      Em

You could have flown away, a singing bird in an open cage

              D         A                 E (x2)

Who will only fly, only fly, for freedom

 

CHORUS 2:   (w/ Riff 1)

D            A

Walk on, walk on

              G

What you've got they can't deny it

        Em

Can't sell it, can't buy it

D            A

Walk on, walk on

G              E

Stay safe tonight

 

            D

And I know it aches

                A

And your heart it breaks

             E (x2)

You can only take so much

 

SOLO:

Bm  G   Em  A  (Prog. x2)

A (x3)

 

D   A          
Home, 
              G (x2)                             
hard to know what it is if you’ve never had one
D    A
Home
           G (x2)            
I can't say where it is, but I know I’m going
D    A
Home 
                           E  (x2)
That's where the hurt is
D                                         A
And I know it aches and your heart it breaks
 
            Bm (x2)
You can only take so much
Walk on
 
Em  G  D  A (Prog. x2)

 

                    Em                        G 

all that you fashion, all that you make,

                      D                      A

all that you build, all that you break,

                    Em                        G 

all that you measure, all that you steal

                    D                A

all this you can leave behind.

                  Em                    G

All that you reason (It’s only time)

                  D                    A

All that I’m feeling on my mind

Em        G                                     D      A

               You’ve got to leave it behind

                                    Em        G 

You’ve got to leave it behind

 

D (hold)
