"Heaven" by Brett Dennen
Verse 1
[F]Beyond the rules of rel[A#]igion
[Dm]the cloth of conv[Am]iction
[A#]above all the compe[F]tit[Dm]ion
[Gm]where fact and fiction [C]meet
( Tab from: )
There's no [F]color lines, casts or [A#]classes
[Dm]there's no fooling the [Am]masses
[A#]whatever faith you [F]pract[Dm]ice
[Gm]whatever you [C]believe
Oh, [Dm]Heaven, Hea[A#]ven[C] [Dm]
[Dm]What the hell is [A#]heav[C]en?[Dm]
[A#]Is there a [C]home for the [F]homeless
[A#]Is there [C]hope for the [F]hopeless
Verse 2
[F]Throw away your miscon[A#]ceptions
[Dm]there's no walls around [Am]heaven
[A#]there's no codes you gotta [F]know to [Dm]get in
no [Gm]minutemen or border [C]patrol
[F]You must lose your earthly poss[A#]essions
[Dm]leave behind your [Am]weapons
[A#]you can't buy your sa[F]lva[Dm]tion
and there [Gm]is no pot of [C]gold
[Am]Heaven ain't got no [Dm]prisons
[Gm]no government, no [Dm]business
[Am]no banks or poli[Dm]ticians
[A#]no armies and no po[Am]lic[Gm]e
Verse 3
[F]Castles and cathedrals c[A#]rumble
[Dm]pyramids and pipelines tu[Am]mble
the [A#]failure keeps you [F]humb[Dm]le
and [Gm]leads us closer to [C]peace
