Song begins with a descending six stroke pick played quickly, mandolin-style, on high E string on each of the
following frets; 19,17,16,14,12,9,7, and 5. (This section actually was played on an organ in the original).
Descending passage is played twice.
[E]Heaven...is this h[A]eaven?
[E]Heaven...is this h[A]eaven?
[E]Heaven...is this h[A]eaven...where[E] we are?
[E]See them walking, [D]if you dare, or [A]if you call that [E]walking
[E]Stumble, stagger, [D]fall and drag thems[A]elves along the [F#m]streets of [E]heaven
[E]Where is the blessed table to [A]feed all who hunger on [E]earth?
[E]Welcomed and seated, [A]each one is joyfully [E]served
[E]See them walking, [D]if you dare, or [A]if you call that [E]walking
[E]Stumble, stagger, [D]fall and drag thems[A]elves along the [F#m]streets of [E]heaven
[E]Where is the halo, [A]that should glow 'round your [E]face?
[E]And where are the wings that should [A]grow from your shoulders, pray [E]show them to me?
[D]Sobering [A]sights I've seen [E]in the City of [A]Angels
[E]have all been [D]one rude a[A]wakening [E]that was due to [F#m]me in [E]heaven.
Repeat opening descending passage on high E string
[D]Sobering [A]sights I've seen [E]in the City of [A]Angels
[E]have all been [D]one rude a[A]wakening [E]that was due to [F#m]me in [E]heaven.
[E]There would be heavenly music, [A]I was convinced be[E]fore...
[E]A host of the dearly to meet me with [A]hosannas sung at the [E]door
[E]But these [D]sobering [A]sights I've seen [E]in the City of [A]Angels
[E]have all been [D]one rude a[A]wakening [E]that was due to [F#m]me in this city of [Em]fallen [E]angels.
