                Surrender
       by U2, From the "War" album

Like most of "War", Surrender is tuned down half a step to Eb.

Slide parts come when I get my slide back dammit.

Basically all you're playing during the verses is a steady rhythm of A-D-E-D-A

A: 5 7 7 6 5 5
D: 5 5 7 7 7 x - I usually don't play the e string, because I'm lazy in that chord shape.
E: 7 7 9 9 9 x

At the "Surrender..." lines, I usually bar the top two or three strings at the 12th fret on e, hit twice, then slide them down to 10.  This is because I don't have my slide; normally this is where it would go.

A       D       E
The city's alight

     D       A
With lovers and lies

     D       E
Bright blue eyes

    D       A
The city is bright

   D       E
It's brighter than day tonight

Surrender


        A         D         
Sadie said she couldn't

            E                      D
Work out what it was all about

                          A
And so she let go

            D               E            D
Now Sadie's on the street

                                             A  
And the people she meets you know

                                       D
She tried to be a good girl
 
                
And a good wife

E
Raise a good family

                 D
Lead a good life

                          A
It's not good enough

                     D                 E
She got herself up on the 48th floor

                   D
Got to find out, find out

                            A
What she's living for

Surrender

  ~Solo~

Tonight

  (Rest of song continues same way)

Oh, the city's a fire
A passionate flame
Which knows me by name
The city's desire
To take me for more and more
It's in the street getting under my feet
It's in the air, it's everywhere I look for you
It's in the things I do and say
And if I want to live
I've got to die to myself someday
Papa sing my sing my sing my song
Papa sing my sing my sing my song
Papa sing my sing my sing my song

Surrender
