"Bullet The Blue Sky" by U2 
As heard on "The Joshua Tree" (1987)

Track Length: 4:32

Guitar 1 Tuning: eb Bb Gb Db Ab Eb -elec. w/ slight echo -full dist. w/slide
Guitar 2 Tuning: eb Bb Gb Db Ab Eb -elec. w/ dist. set 0 gain (1 pickup)

Not that the other version was wrong in any way... here's my interpretation.
Lyrics not quite lined up.
