[Verse 1]
Am              Fmaj7
      Dear God, hope you got the letter, and...
Am/G            D9/F#                        C
   ...I pray ...you can make it better down  ...here,
C/G#          D7sus2           D9/F#                   C
      I don't mean a big re - duction in the price of beer,
C/G#              D7sus2                       D9/F#
      But all the people that you made in your image,
            D              D/C
See them starving on their feet,
             Bb                 E7
'Cause they don't get enough to eat,
     Am         Fmaj7  Am/G
From   ...God---------------,
  D9/F#             Am      Fmaj7  Am/G  D9/F#
I can't believe in   ...you--------------------!


[Verse 2]
Am              Fmaj7
      Dear God, sorry to disturb you, but...
Am/G            D9/F#                             C
      I feel ...that I should be heard loud and   ...clear,
C/G#         D7sus2           D9/F#               C
      We all need a big re - duction in amount of ...tears,
C/G#              D7sus2                       D9/F#
      And all the people that you made in your image,
            D             D/C
See them fighting in the street,
             Bb                  E7
'Cause they can't make opinions meet...
         Am        Fmaj7  Am/G
...About   ...God---------------,
  D9/F#            Am       Fmaj7  Am/G  D9/F#
I can't believe in  ...you--------------------!

[Verse 3]
Am              Fmaj7
      Dear God, don't know if you've noticed, but...
Am/G                  D9/F#                      C
   ...Your name ...is on a lot of quotes in this ...book,
C/G#         D7sus2       D9/F#                        C
      And us crazy humans wrote it, you should take a look,
C/G#             D7sus2                        D9/F#
      And all the people that you made in your image,
              D                 D/C
Still be - lieving that junk is true,
         Bb                     E7
Well, I know it ain't, ...so do you,
      Am        Fmaj7  Am/G
Dear   ...God---------------,
  D9/F#             Am   Fmaj7  Am/G
I can't believe in...
  D9/F#             Am   Fmaj7  Am/G
I don't believe in...


[Verse 4]
   Dm
I won't believe in heaven and hell,
    Bb
No saints, no sinners, no devil as well,
    Dm
No pearly gates, no thorny crown,
         Bb
You're always letting us humans down,
     G7
The wars you bring, the babes you drown,
       Bb
Those lost at sea and never found!


[Verse 5]
     Dm
And it's the same the whole world 'round,
     Bb
The hurt I see helps to compound,
     G7
That Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
    Bb
Is just somebody's unholy hoax,
     Dm
And, if you're up there, you'd perceive...
        Bb
...That my heart's here upon my sleeve,
     G7                                    A7
If there's one thing I don't believe in...


[Coda]
N.C.    Dsus2  Dsus2/Bb  Dsus2/C  Dsus2/F  Dsus2/G  Dsus2/E
 ...It's you-------------------------------------------,
      D
Dear God!

Thanks very much for the comment Nicolas, I'm sure with a bit of practise you'll get there, but please, you can really show some appreciation for some ones time and effort if you select a star rating for any tabs you really like.
It's the way that most tabs in a list get seen, so any good tabs,(even ones already with plenty of 5 stars) still need those regular top-ups of good star ratings so they don't slip down the list. Luckily there were only 2 versions of this song so far, but some of my other tabs are Version 10 and need all the help they can get to even be noticed. I believe there's still a lot of folks think the Versions are ranked by quality, i.e. Version 1 being the best, when in fact it was just the first one posted. Remember to rate any ones' tabs that you approve of, you'll make their day.
