In God's Country

I find it interesting that the band members themselves aren't particularly fond of this song, its one of my favorites...

The third verse seems like an afterthought. It Bono ran ouot of ideas.

Edge had difficulty with it because of the tempo

I wish U2 was more proud of it as well. It's one of the album's strongest, in my opinion.

I totally agree.  It is an essential part of the album.  More than perhaps any other song on the album, it evokes the sweeping vistas of the high desert.  It is absolutely indispensable in my opinion.

It's an excellent song.  The first five songs of the JT album are the strongest, but this and Exit are also brilliant.

Can’t imagine TJT without it.   It is key to the concept of the album.   Always imagined that this song would have been the perfect segue into Heartland on both the album and on tour.
