Dear God
---- ---


[Verse 1:]

Dear God, hope you got the letter and...
I pray you can make it better down here
I don't mean a big reduction in the price of beer
But all the people that you made in your image
See them starving on their feet
'Cause they don't get enough to eat
>From God,
I can't believe in you


[Verse 2:]

Dear God, sorry to disturb you but...
I feel that I should be heard loud and clear
We all need a big reduction in amount of tears
And all the people that you made in your image
See them fighting in the street
'Cause they can't make opinions meet
About God,
                   C   D
I can't believe in you


[Bridge:]

 Fmaj7                         C      G     C
Did you make disease, and the diamond blue?
Fmaj7                      D2 (or A7sus4/D)
Did you make mankind after we made you?
A/C#  C  C/E  E7
Am riff
And the devil, too?
                   C  D  (2nd time thru)
bypass Am thing and go to C riff


[Verse 3:]

Dear God, don't know if you've noticed but...
Your name is on a lot of quotes in this book
And us crazy humans wrote it you should take a look
And all the people that you made in your image
Still believing that junk is true
Well I know it ain't, and so do you, dear God
I can't believe in
I don't believe in


[Verse 4:]

  Am/F#
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
  G
The wars you bring, the babes you drown
  Bb
Those lost at sea and never found
  Dm
And it's the same the whole world 'round
  Bb
The hurt I see helps to compound
  G
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
  G                                     A
If there's one thing I don't believe in

     D2/  D  Bb  C  F  G  E  <-  D2 form, use these bass notes
          0   0  0  0  0  0
          3   3  3  3  3  3
          2   2  2  2  2  2
          0   -  -  -  -  -
          -   1  3  -  - -- 
          -   -  -  1  3  0 


[Outro]

It's you
Dear God
