Heaven is closed    (video)

 

    D - A - D

 

    D

Heaven is closed and hell's overcrowded,

         D                                     A

so I think I'll just stay where I am.

 A

So many people, well, it sure is lonely,

        A7                         D

but who even gives a damn ?

     D

I hear someone callin', "Come in from the craziness, "

D7                                       G

    but there ain't nobody around.

    G                               D

Heaven is closed and hell's overcrowded,

          A                                               D

so I think I think I'll just stay where I am.

 

        D                     G D                                A

1. Heaven left for California on a midnight plane,

      A

    hell stayed behind so I wouldn't be lonely

           A7                                    D

    for reasons that's hard to explain.

                  D

    Could it be hell is heaven and that heaven is hell

            D7                                           G

    and each one are both the same thing ?

                 G                                       D

    Well, I hope Heaven finds what she's lookin' for

                    A                                        D

    and that hell treats us both just the same.

 

+  CHORUS

 

               G                               D

+  Let's burn one for those still livin' in hell,

              G                                   D

    let's burn one for those who think they're in heaven,

       G                               D

    burn one for everyone in the whole world

             E                               A      - A7

    and anyone stuck in-between !

 

    D

Heaven is closed and hell's overcrowded,

         D                                     A

so I think I'll just stay where I am.

 A

So many people, well, it sure is lonely,
