"This image of 'the unforgettable fire' applied not only to the nuclear winterscape of 'A Sort of Homecoming,' but also the unforgettable fire of a man like Martin Luther King, or the consuming fire which is heroin."

In God's Country Lyrics

Found On:


Rattle And Hum (1987)

Note: U2 has released different versions of most singles in different countries. We are not showing every cover image in this space, just one that's representative of each release.

"In God's Country" (live from Denver)

"'In God's Country' was a difficult song to record, although it's actually quite a simple, throwaway piece. I guess because we're not trained musicians, it's almost laughable how hard it was sometimes for us to play together and make something that sounded good while just playing in time. Making it work and then making it interesting were the two jobs at the time - sometimes we made it work and sometimes we made it interesting. That one definitely fell between two stools. In fact, I could never quite figure out why the chords for the two choruses were actually completely different, but there you go. The choruses were different, so I guess that means they weren't really choruses!" - Adam, U2 By U2 2006

Desert sky
Dream beneath the desert sky
The rivers run but soon run dry
We need new dreams tonight

Desert rose
Dreamed I saw a desert rose
Dress torn in ribbons and in bows
Like a siren she calls to me

Sleep comes like a drug
In God's Country
Sad eyes, crooked crosses
In God's Country

Naked flame
She stands with a naked flame
I stand with the sons of Cain
Burned by the fire of love
Burned by the fire of love
