Song Lyrics

This edit of the song has not yet been released. Lyrics provided below are based on the version appearing on “Madison Square Garden 09-28-1997“ released by Wolfgang’s Vault, and the final version appearing on The Joshua Tree 30th Anniversary Edition is expected to be a different edit, but based on the same starting material.

October
The trees are stripped bare
From all they wear
What do I care?

October
Kingdoms rise and kingdoms fall
But you go on
And on
And on
You go on
You go on…
