Happiness Is A Warm Gun

Music and lyrics by John Lennon and Paul McCartney
Transcribed by Brandon Leniart 

This is from the "Last Night On Earth" single, and it's a must for anyone who
saw the Popmart Tour.  Hearing "Pop Muzik" on that CD instantly takes me back
to the opening minutes of the show with Bono in his boxer robe, punching at
the air.   It even has a bit of "Mofo" at the end, and some crowd noise at
the beginning.  "Happines Is A Warm Gun" isn't too shabby either, and once
again U2 proves that they can do a cover version of any song and make it
their own.  (It's in A minor)

Mother superior jump the gun
Happiness is a warm gun
She's well equated with protection
Of the velvet hand like a lizard on a window pane
Man in the crowd with the multi-colored mirrors on his half-nail boots
A lion, eyes wide open, his hands are busy workin' overtime
A soap impression of his wife
Which he ate and donated to the national trust
Hey, I need a fix 'cos I'm goin' down
Happiness is a warm gun

I need a fix 'cos I'm goin' down 
I need a fix 'cos I'm goin' down to the mist that I live uptown
I need a fix 'cos I'm goin' down
Happiness is a warm gun

(add this to the Am-F-G riff)
