From Gretchen's 2004 Halcyon album
Standard tuning EADGBE 
NB Gretchen's recording is a whole tone DOWN from this i.e. DGCFAD
So - while the fingering for C is x32010, it is in fact Bb, G/B is F/A etc.


VERSE 1
=======

C                 G/B              Am       Am/G
 If heaven was an hour it would be twilight
     F                              C    G
 The fireflies start dancing on the lawn
 C               G/B              Am      Am/G
 supper's on the stove and Mama's laughing
F                C              G
 And everybody's working day is done
C                G/B              Am    Am/G
 If heaven was a town it would be my town
      F             G              C    G
 On a summer day in nineteen sixty-five
 C            G/B                  Am      Am/G
 Everything I wanted was out there waiting
 F          G               C      G/B
 Everyone I loved was still alive


CHORUS 1
========
 
Am     G     F               C    G/B
 Don't cry a tear for me now baby
Am         G       F            G
   Comes a time we all must say goodbye
C       G/B                  Am   F
 And if that's what heaven's made of 
           C        G       C
You know I ain't af-raid to die


VERSE 2
=======

C                G/B              Am     Am/G
 If heaven was a pie it  would be cherry
       F                                C       G
Cool and sweet and heavy on your tongue
     C                   G/B          Am     Am/G
 And just one bite would satisfy your hunger
     F                            G
 And there'd always be enough for everyone
C                G               Am       Am/G
 If heaven was a train it'd be a fast one
F                                       C    G
 To take this weary traveller round the bend
C                    G/B             Am       Am/G
 And if heaven was a tear it'd be my last one
F             G          C      G/B
 And you'd be in my arms again


CHORUS 2
=======
 
Am        G     F               C    G/B
 So don't cry a tear for me now baby
Am       G       F            G
 Comes a time we all must say goodbye
C       G/B                  Am       F
 And if that's what heaven's made of 
           C C/G              C
You know I   ain't af-raid to die

C   G                    Am
 If that's what heaven's made of
C  G               C
 I ain't afraid to die
