HEAVEN IS A HONKY TONK -- Ray LaMontagne

Tabbed by: abuckner28

This is a song Ray did on Austin City Limits.  You can find the video on YouTube, among 
places, though I don't think it's been released on an album yet.

Tuning: Standard

(Verse 1)
C                              Fmaj7
All my heroes have gone to heaven
G                                    C
Where all them saints wear flaming shoes
C                                  Fmaj7
The junkies and the whores are behind them pearly doors
G                                  Fmaj7
I guess i'm going to go to heaven too

(Verse 2)
C                                Fmaj7
Now all my heroes have gone to heaven
G                                                C
Where all them richeous joes take to shoveling coal
C
The killers and the cons
Fmaj7
The pushers and the pawns
G                                               C   C7
With halos, wings just hovering over paths of gold


(Chorus)
Fmaj7              C
so mama don't you cry
Fmaj7              C
when i'm dead and gone
Fmaj7                      C
cause jesus loves his sinners
G                       C
and heaven is a honky tonk

C-Fmaj7-C-Fmaj7

(Verse 3)
C                               Fmaj7
Now all my heros have gone to heaven
G                                    C
The liars and the gamblers and the fools
C
The drunkards and the thieves
Fmaj7
All wearing silk upon their sleeves
G                                         C     C7
And every gal is like a silver pearl in bloom

(Chorus)
Fmaj7              C
So mama don't you cry
Fmaj7              C
When i'm dead and gone
Fmaj7                     C
Cause jesus loves his sinners
G                       C
And heaven is a honky tonk
Fmaj7               C
So mama don't you cry
Fmaj7               C
When i'm dead and gone
Fmaj7                     G
Cause jesus loves his sinners
Fmaj7                   C
And heaven is a honky tonk
Fmaj7                   C
And heaven is a honky tonk
