Heaven Bound Glory Be  Kevin Devine

the picking of the first C is in strings: A-B-G then A-D-G

intro: C

[C]A reporter in a jailroom, whispering her source to a [F]dying bulb
[G]While the prince is in a fable, peaceful in his cradle,
[Am]convinced of the[G] impossibl[F]e:
All those [Dm]wicked words I [G]used to build my w[C]ild Western
I was [Dm]just following the [G]rules. Yeah, I [C]did what I had to
So now its [Dm]later than it [C]needs to b[G]e
And in the [Em]dulcet tones of d[Am]rea[G]m
The [F]prince atop his chariot,
[G]Heaven bound & glory be.

[C]A mother in a market chases after children that she [F]barely knows
[G]While the father on the barstool, dropped off by his
carpool, is [Am]playing a [G]familiar [F]role:
I used to [Dm]be a conquering [G]king. I watched the [C]slow stars
shoot & [F]swing.
When I'd [Dm]wake, the world would [G]sing. Now, I [C]can't hear
So now its [Dm]later than it needs to [G]be
And while his [Em]stranger family [Am]sle[G]eps
[F]The king looks for his castle,
[G]Heaven bound & glory be.
[F]There's a myth we must've [G]made
One we're s[C]preading every[Am] day
In every [F]dying dream we [G]grieve
The humming[C] hole we [G]fight & fe[Am]ed
[F]It's the loving lives we long for
[G]Heaven bound & glory be
[C]A man in a hotel room, tangled to his teeth by the
[G]He's waiting on a woman, wondering what she's doing, and
[Am]pacing so his [G]pulse won't [F]slow.
He drums his l[Dm]egs and pulls his [G]hair; he carves her [C]dimples
in the [F]air.
The raging [Dm]world has spooked him [G]scared, and he [C]don't want
her lost out [F]there.
So now it's [Dm]later than it n[C]eeds to [G]be
And though his a[Em]ching eyes want s[Am]lee[G]p
Against a[Dm]ll rationali[C]ty  [G]
Against [Em]everything he bel[Am]iev[G]es
[F]He prays for her protection,
[G]Heaven bound & glory b[Am]e.
[F]He prays for her protection,
[G]Heaven bound & gloooooooooory [Am]beeeeeeee. Ohhh
And I[F] pray for your protection, [G]heaven bound and glor[C]y be
