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,
                   C   D
I can't believe in you

 Fmaj7                         C      G     C
Did you make disease, and the diamond blue?
Fmaj7                      D2 (or A7sus4/D)
Did you make mankind after we made you?
A/C#  C  C/E  E7
Am riff
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 won't believe in heaven and hell
No saints, no sinners, no devil as well
No pearly gates, no thorny crown
You're always letting us humans down
The wars you bring, the babes you drown
Those lost at sea and never found
And it's the same the whole world 'round
The hurt I see helps to compound
That Father, Son and Holy Ghost
Is just somebody's unholy hoax
And if you're up there you'd perceive
That my heart's here upon my sleeve
  G                                     A
If there's one thing I don't believe in
     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
          0   -  -  -  -  -
          -   1  3  -  - -- 
          -   -  -  1  3  0 
It's you
Dear God
