Artist: Pain
Album: Wonderful Beef (1997)
Note: I like to play this song with suspended second chords. It kind of gives it a 
dreamy, singer-songwriter-ish sound... but then again, that's not what most people reading 
this tab are looking for, I assume.

D            A                  G         A
It's not the number of times he tried to
D            A           G
But the one time that he did.
D            A          G               A
I once told him to beware of things to come,
D            A                  G
But I was the one who should be scared.
D            A                  G         A
All the police and handcuffs didn't bother him.
D            A                  G
He's sure that God would understand.
D            A                  G         A
Oh, the killings in the convent hall.
D            A                  G
The cleaning bill was outrageous.

[chorus]

D     A
Gavin killed a nun:
     G             A                    D
"She had it coming and she got what she deserved."
D         A         G         A
God helps those who help themselves.
D       A              G           A
All the kids at recess rallied for his cause.
D       A              G           A
The paid their lunch money for his bail.

D            A                  G         A
For all the times he tried to do it
D            A                  G
Well he finally got it right.
D            A                  G         A
All the kids in school just think of Gavin
             D                  G
As a folk hero because school's let out all day.

Em7    G                     D                G
Sister Mary's yardstick once broke on Gavin's hand,
Em7                        G
But now Gavin's set things right.
Em7    G                     D                G
Sister Mary's yardstick once broke on Gavin's hand,
Em7                  G                           D    A
   G     A
But now Gavin's sent Sister Mary to the promised l----a----n----d.
D      A         G          A
To the promised land!
