Ain't No Reason
By Brett Dennen

                Bb                    Dm
There ain't no reason things are this way
Bb                                                   Dm C
It's how they've always been and they intend to stay
          Bb                     Dm
I can't explain why we live this way
              C
We do it everyday

                  Bb                   Dm
Preachers on the podium speaking the saints
                   Bb                  Dm C
Prophets on the sidewalk begging for change
            Bb                    Dm
Old ladies laugh from the fire escape
            C
Cursing my name

                         Bb                              Dm
I got a basket full of lemons and they always taste the same
                 Bb                     Dm C
A window and a pidgen with a broken wing
                      Bb                       Dm
You could spend you whole life working for something
                       C
Just to have it taken away

             Bb                        Dm
People walk around pushing back their desks
           Bb                          Dm      C
Wearing paychecks like necklaces and bracelets
                 Bb                        Dm
Talking about nothing, not thinking about death
                        C            Dm (no bottom E string) C
Every little heartbeat every little breath

               Bb                      Dm
People walk a tight rope on a razor's edge
                Bb                     Dm     C
Carrying their hurt and hatred and weapons
               Bb                    Dm
It could be a bomb, or a bullet or a pin
                    C
Or a thought, or a word, or a sentence

                Bb                    Dm
There ain't no reason things are this way
                         Bb                      Dm C
It's how they've always been and they intend to stay
              Bb                     Dm
I dont't know why i say the things i say
                  C
But i say them anyway

                       Dm   Bb    C
Love will come set me free
                       Dm    Bb        C
Love will come set me free,  I do believe
                       Dm    Bb        C
Love will come set me free,  I know it will
                       Dm    Bb        C
Love will come set me free

         Bb                  Dm
Prison walls still standing tall
         Bb                  Dm      C
Some things never change at all
                   Bb                    Dm
Keep on building prisons gonna fill them all
                   C                   Dm (no bottom E string) C
Keep on building bombs gonna drop them all

              Bb                  Dm
Working your fingers bare to the bone
              Bb                    Dm      C
Breaking your back to make yourself useful
              Bb               Dm
Laugh along, it's filled with cold
               C
Suffocating slow

                Bb             Dm
The wind blows wild and i may move
                Bb                 Dm    C
But politicians lie and i am not fooled
                Bb                          Dm
You don’t need no reason nor a three-piece suit
                 C
To argue the truth

               Bb                          Dm
The air on my skin, and the world under my toes
               Bb                          Dm      C
Slavery stitched in to the fabric of my clothes
             Bb                Dm
Chaos and commotion wherever i go
                C
Love i try to follow

                       Dm   Bb    C
Love will come set me free
                       Dm    Bb        C
Love will come set me free,  I do believe
                       Dm    Bb        C
Love will come set me free,  I know it will
                       Dm    Bb        C
Love will come set me free

                Bb                    Dm
There ain't no reason things are this way
                         Bb                      Dm C
It's how they've always been and they intend to stay
          Bb                     Dm
I can't explain why we live this way
             C
We do it everyday

thanks, this was very helpful. I tried playing F instead of Dm and i think it sounds alright. What do you think?
