Something To Believe In

Poison

 DG/D
Well I see him on the TV preaching 'bout the promised land
 DG/D
He tells me to believe in Jesus steals the money from my hand
 DG/DDG/D
 Some say he was a good man lord I think he sinned
 DG/D
 Twenty two years of mental tears cries a suicidal Vietnam vet
 DG/D
Who fought a losing war on a foriegn shore to find his country didn't want him back
 DG/D
Their bullets took his best friend in Saigon our lawyers took his wife and kids no regrets
 DG/D
In a time I don't remember in a war he can't forget
 DEmD/F#
He cried "Forgive me for what I've done there cause I never meant the
 G
things I did
(no chord) D
And give me something to believe in
 G/D
If there's a lord above
 D
Give me something to believe in
 G/D
Oh lord arise
 DG/D
My best friend died a lonley man in some Palm Springs motel room
 DG/D
got the call last Christmas Eve and they told me the news
 DG/D
tried all night not to break down and cry as the tears rolled down my face
 DG/D
felt so cold and empty like a lost soul out of place
 DEmD/F#G
And mirror mirror on the wall see my smile it fades again
(no chord) D
And give me something to believe in
 G/D
If there's a lord above
 D
Give me something to believe in
 G/D
Oh lord arise

 GDEmD/F#G
 Sometimes I wish to God I didn't know now things I didn't know then

Solo: G :D/G...

 DG/D
I drive by the homeless sleeping on the cold dark street like bodies in an open grave
 DG/D
 Underneath the broken old neon sign that used to read "Jesus Saves"
 DG/D
mile away live the rich folks and I see how they livin' it up
 DD
While the poor they eatin' from hand to mouth the rich drinkin' from a golden cup
 DEmD/F#G
 And it just makes me wonder why so many lose and so few win
(no chord) D
And give me something to believe in
 G/D
If there's a lord above
 D
Give me something to believe in
 G/D
Oh lord arise

 GEmD/F#G
 Sometimes I wish to God I didn't know now things I didn't know then
 D
And give me something to believe in
