Dear God


---- ---

Dear God, hope you got the letter and...
I pray you can make it better down here
I don't mean a big reduction in the price of beer
But all the people that you made in your image
See them starving on their feet
'Cause they don't get enough to eat
>From God,
I can't believe in you
Dear God, sorry to disturb you but...
I feel that I should be heard loud and clear
We all need a big reduction in amount of tears
And all the people that you made in your image
See them fighting in the street
'Cause they can't make opinions meet
About God,
I can't believe in [C]you[D]
D[Fmaj7]id you make disease, and the d[C]iamond [G]blue?[C]
Fmaj7 D2 (or A7sus4/D)
Did you make mankind after we made you?
[A/C#]Am rif[C]f[C/E] [E7]
And the devil, too?
C D (2nd time thru)
bypass Am thing and go to C riff
Dear God, don't know if you've noticed but...
Your name is on a lot of quotes in this book
And us crazy humans wrote it you should take a look
And all the people that you made in your image
Still believing that junk is true
Well I know it ain't, and so do you, dear God
I can't believe in
I don't believe in
I [Am/F#]won't believe in heaven and hell
No[Bb] saints, no sinners, no devil as well
No[Dm] pearly gates, no thorny crown
Yo[Bb]u're always letting us humans down
Th[G]e wars you bring, the babes you drown
Th[Bb]ose lost at sea and never found
An[Dm]d it's the same the whole world 'round
Th[Bb]e hurt I see helps to compound
Th[G]at Father, Son and Holy Ghost
Is[Bb] just somebody's unholy hoax
An[Dm]d if you're up there you'd perceive
Th[Bb]at my heart's here upon my sleeve
If[G] there's one thing I don't believe in[A]
D2/ D Bb C F G E <- D2 form, use these bass notes
0 0 0 0 0 0
          [3]    [3]   [3]   [3]   [3]   [3]            [2]    [2]   [2]   [2]   [2]   [2]

It's you
Dear God
