4th Of July Lyrics

"4th Of July" (instrumental)

"Adam was just playing a little bass figure during a break in the session. I started playing along, totally unaware that Brian was listening in the other room. He happened to have some treatments set up for a vocal Bono had been doing and he applied those to the guitar. He recorded it straight to stereo tape and we kept it as a live instrumental. We called it '4th Of July' to commemorate the birth of my daughter, Hollie, Bono's godchild, who was born on that date, right in the middle of making the album."

This is an instrumental track.
