Something To Believe In (Alternate) - Poison

[Verse 1]

E
I came home from school on Tuesday
A/F#m
To find my mother gone
E
Why she left I'll never know
A/F#m
It seemed like they got along

E                         A/F#m
For one of these days I'd like to know
G#m/E                  A/E
Just where it all went wrong

[Verse 2]
E
A woman torn to tears asks
A/F#m
Who the real criminals are
E
Or when they told her, her husband died
A/F#m
Fighting in another country's drug wars

E
She said it isn't the kids on the streets without a dream
A/F#m
Shooting up the dealers smack
E
It's them red tape politicians
A/F#m
Taking all the drug lords kickbacks

E                   A/F#m
Isn't it funny what power and money
G#m/E                   A/E
Can do to the soul of a man?


[Chorus]
                         E
And give me something to believe in, yeah
             Asus2
If there's a lord above
                       E                      Asus2
Ah give me something to believe in, yeah,  Oh lord arise


[Verse 3]

E
He got a second job at night now
A/F#m
Just to help pay the bills
E
And there he worked for the rest of his life
A/F#m
'Cause his wife had taken ill

[Verse 4]

E
And now he lives on a bottle of courage
A/F#m
He buys at the liquor store
E
He did his family real good
A/F#m
Until he couldn't do it anymore

G#m/E              A/F#m              G#m/E           A/E
Whatever he found, Why he broke down, No one's really sure

[Chorus]
                         E
Just needed something to believe in, yeah
             Asus2
If there's a lord above
                       E                      Asus2
He needed something to believe in, yeah,  Oh lord arise

E                                     A/F#m
Tracked some of societies race on the old man's face
    G#m/E                  A/E
His eyes blood red laid to waste

[Solo] 
B    A

E    Asus2

G#m/E  A/F#m  G#m/E  A/E 

[Verse 5]

E
Well, the mirror tells a different story
A/F#m
Then the one that's playing in my mind
E
Every time I swear I'm looking younger
A/F#m
The more lines that I find

[Verse 6]

E
I guess I learned to trade youth for wisdom
A/F#m
And lust in for romance
E
It's all written in the stages and
A/F#m
Phases of life's little dance

E                              A/F#m
But when I want to bitch about growing old
G#m/E                        A/E
I think how many never had a chance


[Chorus]

[Chorus]
                         E
It gives me something to believe in, yeah
             Asus2
If there's a Lord above
                       E                      Asus2
It gives me something to believe in, yeah,  Oh Lordy, Lord arise

             E
Something to believe in
   Asus2
Oh Lord, above
                         E
It gives me something to believe in, yeah
   Asus2
Oh Lord, arise

E  A/F#m
E  A/F#m

G#m/E              A/F#m
Sometimes I wish I didn't know now
G#m/E             A/E
Things I did know then, yeah

G#m/E     A/F#m     G#m/E    A/E

                         E    
And give me something to believe in, yeah-e-yeah
