Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Aint No Reason  Brett Dennen

There ain't no [C]reason things are this [G]way
It's how they've always [D]been and they intend to [Em]stay
I can't exp[C]lain why we live this [G]way
We do it every [D]day

Preachers on the [C]podium speakin' of [G]saints
Prophets on the [D]sidewalk beggin' for [Em]change
Old ladies [C]laughin' from the fire [G]escape
Cursin' my [D]name

I got a basket full of [C]lemons and they all taste the [G]same
A window and a [D]pigeon with a broken [Em]wing
You can spend your [C]whole life workin' for [G]something
Just to have it [D]taken away
People walk a[C]round pushin' back their [G]debts
Wearin' [D]paychecks like necklaces and [Em] bracelets
Talkin' 'bout [C]nothin', not thinkin' 'bout [G]death
Every little [D]heartbeat, every little [Em]breath
People walk a [C]tightrope on a razor's [G]edge
Carryin' their [D]hurt and hatred and [Em]weapons
It could be a [C]bomb or a bullet or a [G]pen
A thought or a [D]word or a [Em]sentence
There ain't no [C]reason things are this [G]way
It's how they' always [D]been and they intend to [Em]stay
I can't [C]explain why we live this[G] way
We do it every [D]day
But love will come s[C]et me[Em] free  [D]
Love will come set me free,     [C]I do[Em]     [D]     believe
Love will come set me free,     [C]I kn[Em]ow it [D]    will
Love will come set me free,     yes    [C]        [Em]               [D]
Prison w[C]alls still standin' ta[G]ll
[D]Some things never change at all   [Em]
[C]Keep on buildin' prisons, gonna fill them [G]all
[D]Keep on buildin' bombs, gonna drop them all
W[C]orkin' your fingers bare to the[G] bones
[D]Breakin' your back, make you sell yo[Em]ur soul
L[C]ike a lung that's filled with coal [G]
[D]Suffocatin' slow
[C]The wind blows wild and I may[G] move
Bu[D]t politicians lie and I am not f[Em]ooled
[C]You don't need no reason or a three-piece suit      [G]
[D]To argue the truth
The a[C]ir on my skin and world under my toes   [G]
Slaver[D]y stitched into the fabric of my [Em]clothes
Ch[C]aos and commotion wherever I go   [G]
[D]Love I try to follow
But love will come [C]set m[Em]e free [D]
Love will come set me free,     [C]I do[Em]     [D]     believe
Love will come set me free,     [C]I kn[Em]ow it [D]    will
Love will come set me free,     yes    [C]        [Em]               [D]
There ain't no reason thin[C]gs are this way               [G]
It's how they' always b[D]een and they intend to stay                [Em]
I [C]can't explain why we live this way               [G]
We do it every[D] day
