Sneakin' Into Heaven
NOTE- much of the song is picked with a bass background- it's mostly correct as I see
let me know if you come up with something else. Peace.
Intro- Palm muted chug on the B chord
[B]City sidewalk, [D]bright Saturday [A]morning
[B]Beggar with a halo[D] shuffles up t[A]o me
[B]He asks me for a coin, and mumbles, [D]"Thank you, and God b[A]less you."
[B]Good deeds and halos not[D] sure what I[A] believe.
[F#]He asks me, "Is there something I can give back to you?
[F#]How 'bout this halo for an hour or two?" And now I'm...
[B]Sneakin' into heaven with a [D]borrowed [A]halo
[B]Hopin' no one notices my[D] broken w[A]ings
[B]Peekin' through these gates and thinkin' [D]Lord have m[A]ercy!
[F#]I'm never gonna make it if it's up to me!
[B]'Postle Peter, t[D]aps me on my [A]shoulder
[B]Says, "are you lost?" I say, "[D]Can you show me a[A]round?"
[B]"Well, I'd be glad to! Tell me, [D]what brings you to heaven [A]today?"
[B]"I've always wondered what the[D] fuss is all [A]about."
[F#]I feel like a kid flashin' a fake I.D.
[F#]Tryin' to slip past the Authority! And now I'm...
[B]Hey Mr. Pedro, I [D]have a little con[A]fession
[B]I don't belong here, and this[D] halo isn't [A]mine
[B]Peter laughs and says, "Well[D], boy, haven't you n[A]oticed?
[B]We've all been broken, but[D] now we're doin' just f[A]ine!
[F#]'Cause nobody's good enough, and up here we're all the same.
[F#]We all get to heaven under Someone Else's name!"
