Song: U2 – With or without you

In this lesson we’re going to play an easy song from U2 that consist in only 4 chords.   These chords are:

D, A7, Bm, G

U2 – With or without you

The rhythm is a standard 4/4 based on 4 strums:  Down, Up, Down, Up, where we get the second Down with a little bit more intensity to simulate the drums.

After you learn and master the song chords and rhythm, feel free to follow the original video with your cuatro:

See the stone set in your eyes

See the thorn twist in your side

I wait for you

Sleight of hand and twist of fate

On a bed of nails she makes me wait

And I wait without you

With or without you

With or without you

Through the storm we reach the shore

You give it all but I want more

And I’m waiting for you

With or without you

With or without you

I can’t live

With or without you

And you give yourself away

And you give yourself away

And you give

And you give

And you give yourself away

My hands are tied

My body bruised, she’s got me with

Nothing to win and

Nothing left to lose

And you give yourself away

And you give yourself away

And you give

And you give

And you give yourself away

With or without you

With or without you

I can’t live

With or without you

With or without you

With or without you

I can’t live

With or without you

With or without you
