The song appears to be in the key of Db, with A B D E & G all flat. At the end of the song is my attempt at the bass line. Ryth.

Fig. 1 in the background (there also seems to be an organ I couldn't figure out). Ryth. Fig. 1 seems to be played in the background for nearly the entire song. Ryth. Fig. 1 nobody else here baby no one here to blame no one to point the finger it's just you and me and the rain nobody made you do it no one put words in your mouth nobody here takin' orders when love took a train heading south it's the blind, leading the blond it's the stuff . . . it's the stuff of country songs Chorus (with organ) hey if God will send His angels and if God will send a sign and if God will send His angels . . . will everything be alright? Bass enters with Riff A (10X) God has got His phone off the hook babe would He even pick up if he could its been a while since we saw that child hangin' round this neighborhood see his mother dealin' in a doorway see Father Christmas with a begging bowl Jesus' sisters' eyes are a blister the high street never looked so low Riff B it's the blind, leading the blond it's the cops, collecting for the cons so where is the hope and where is the faith and the love Riff A (2X) what's that you say to me? does love light up your Christmas tree? Riff B the next minute your blowin' a fuse and the cartoon network turns into the news Riff A if God will send His angels and if God will send a sign well if God will send His angels . . . where do we go? (where do we go?) Bass Solo with Riff C (9X) Jesus never let me down, you know Jesus used to show me the score then they put Jesus in show business now it's hard to get in the door (I need you) Riff B it's the stuff, it's the stuff of country songs but I guess . . . yah it's something to go on Riff A if God will send His angels . . . sure could use them here right now well if God will send His angels . . . Play around with a bend on B----7---- and Riff A notes then move into Riff B if dont know want my life and I wanna love I feel some and I wanna love again . . . and I wanna feel love . . . uhhhhhh! Outro: Bass Solo then drums enter to fade (add Riff C during fade) BASS (alternate tuning) Eb----------------------------------------------- B------------------------------------------------ Gb----0---2---4---0-------------0---2---4---0---- Db--------------------2---0---------------------- or just follow the notes: Gb Ab Bb Gb Gb Eb Db Gb Ab Bb Gb Well, after repeated listenings, I came up with a rough sketch of this soon to be favorite among U2 fans. I can't wait to hear the main riff echoing through the POPMART stadiums this summer. Anyway, here's a rough sketch of how to play the song. "If God Will Send His Angels", by U2 Tabbed by [email protected] Use a Delay Pedal, and you will need some sort of wah-wah to play certain parts to the song. THERE IS A CAPO USED ON THE 6th FRET for the Chords and Riffs Chords with respect to the CAPO are: C x32010 Am x02210 E* 0200xx G 3200xx OPENING VERSE: For the opening verse, the sound is really hard to match, but it is some sort of wah-wah type effect. Play the following chords apperegio through the opening verse (note - the 'G' part is only played once, repeat the C & Am apperegio throughout the verse): G C Am e----------------------------------------------------- b---------------------1-------1-------1-------1------- g-----------------------2---2---2---2---0---0---0----- d-0-0------0-0------------2-------2-------2-------2--- a-2---2----2---2-------------------------------------- e-3-----3--3-----3------------------------------------ C Am C Am Nobody else here baby no one else here to blame C Am C Am No one to point the finger...it's just you and me in the rain Nobody made you do it no one put words in your mouth Nobody here taking orders when love took a train heading south PRECHORUS: G Am (may be C, not too sure) It's the blind leading the blond G Am It's the stuff the stuff of country songs REFRAIN: C E* Am G Hey if God would send his angels C E* Am G And if God will send a sign C E* Am And if God will send his angels E* C Would everything be alright? THE RIFF: There are many little variations that the Edge throws into this riff, play around with them, and play along with the song to get a feel for it. Use Delay for this riff, set to about .4 seconds. This tab is with respect to the capo on the 6th fret. e---------------0--------- b-1-1-3-3-----3---3-1----- Just repeat this pattern, and play around g---------------------2--- with different variations to get it right Little Riff after Bono Sings "Where Do We Go?" (no delay for this part). Tab with respect to capo on 6th fret. d---10--8-10-8----10---8-10-8----8-- a--------------10-------------10---- That's basically the song. I welcome any corrections. Enjoy. Tabbed by [email protected] If God Will Send His Angles (live POPMART version) transcribed by Patrick Bigley ([email protected]) Of all the POPMART shows I've heard or saw (live or on the net) this song hasbeen played a different way than on the album. I transcribed this song by using the version played at the Pittsburgh show, because it is the the only one I had on tape. So, it may or may not differ from that played at another show.
